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.
