Hello! I am of Dutch origin and have lived in UK for over 19 years, I'm married with two children and I am a qualified Nurse.
I have been running my award winning complementary therapy business since 2012, offering Reflexology, Light Touch Reflex Therapy, Facial Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Swedish Body Massage, Reiki, Animal Reiki, Seated/Chair Acupressure Massage, EFT Tapping Solutions (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and Chakradance™.
I am home based and mobile, in the Worksop area and up to 15 miles from there. Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and occasionally Saturdays or evenings on request. Chakradance classes usually take place during evenings. My customers are of all ages, and I can offer treatments within care-homes (staff, residents, relatives), offices (seated acupressure) and within hospital wards.
How I work
I work directly with subtle energies that flow through and around us, and my aim is to create a safe and caring space for you to relax and de-stress, and enhance the body's self-healing ability. Applying acupressure massage on points located on the body is opening up an even more powerful dimension to be accessed through my work, for your benefit.
Due to the nature of being mobile and working from home as a sole trader, my massages are strictly therapeutic. Please note I do not see male customers unless they are family, I personally know them or they've been referred via friends/relatives/GP. I regret that I need to operate in this manner, but I will be able to give referrals to local salons/therapists that could help instead.
Please feel free to call or email me to ask any questions or to arrange your appointment.

EFT is a universal healing tool (also known as 'tapping') that can provide impressive results for physical, emotional and performance issues. It operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional issues in the way. This is because, for basically ALL issues, it is common knowledge that any kind of emotional stress can hinder the natural healing potential of the human body. We can use it to clear out old traumas and welcome any new challenges with a healthy, productive attitude.
