About me

I have a busy private practice in Iffley Fields, East Oxford. I offer aromatherapy, massage, reflexology, facial reflexology, hot stone massage, Indian head massage, abdominal massage and Bowen treatments. In addition, I am a baby massage instructor.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been in practice for over 25 years, qualifying firstly as an aromatherapist in 1992 and then as a reflexologist in 1993 and have built a wealth of experience during this time. In addition to my private practice, I have been a tutor for Oxfordshire Adult Learning Service since 1995, teaching courses and workshops in reflexology and massage throughout the county. For the past 14 years I have been working twice per month at a private hospital in Oxford, offering massage to high dependency elderly patients, in the 1990s I was contracted as Senior Aromatherapist to a pioneering corporate well-being centre and worked for 2 years as a volunteer at Sobell House Hospice. I also work on a voluntary basis as part of the Age UK Sole Mates team, providing footcare to people in their homes. I am passionate about the benefits of the treatments that I offer and would love to share this with you!
