About me

Hello! My name is Andy and I am an experienced (11 years+), sensitive and friendly holistic/massage therapist, operating from a haven of peace and tranquillity, in a specially designed studio in the basement of my home. I am VTCT level 3 qualified and use a variety of massage styles, including a lot of hands free techniques, which give maximum muscle tension relief.

I am also now Reiki attuned and offer Reiki Healing, which is very effective at helping with a stressed mind, emotional blockages in life and physical ailments.

Using a variety of heated oils, to suit your needs, with a heated massage table, candles and hypnotic music, to help you loose your stresses and deepen your relaxation, letting the outside worries melt away…

I offer a professional, easy going, unhurried service, always ensuring you have time to chill and rest at the end of a massage session. Free shower facilities are available before or after your massage.

I have built up a growing number of happy regular clients over the years, who return for their treatments, as part of their well-being package of life. If you wish to see their reviews and comments on my services, please search in Google for: Equilibrium Massage Therapies Manchester

I aim to personalise each treatment to your needs, by talking and finding out where you are at before each session. My treatments include Swedish Relaxing, Deep Tissue / Hot Stones, Aromatherapy, Hot Stone Therapy, Indian Head, Hopi Ear Candle therapy, Lymphatic Drainage, Fire Cupping and Reiki Healing.
