Loving hands massage and Reiki
One who works with the hands is a labourer.
One who works with the hands and head is a craftsman.
One who works with the hands and the head and the heart is an artist.
St Francis of Assisi
I cannot stress enough the importance of massage and loving human touch for our whole well-being, body mind and soul.
I am passionate about massage and dedicated to helping people feel good in their wonderful bodies. Using my heart, hands and head as I do with all of my work I aim to provide loving touch using techniques and approaches developed over centuries of body work. Training with the Jing institute of massage in Brighton gifted me with their wonderful fusion of east and west and the power of an informed and caring touch.
Reiki healing £45
We are energy, that's just a fact. Our busy and sometimes chaotic lives can disrupt healthy energy flow which affects our whole being. I believe that if we do not protect, balance and care for our energy then we will suffer for it. I found that when I was led to train in Reiki I found a balance that I had long been searching for.
Reiki means universal life force energy, it can be traced back to Tibet thousands of years ago and was re discovered by Dr Mikao Usui of Japan, who I can trace my lineage back to. It is an ancient practice for modern life. Reiki is a gentle laying of hands while channelling healing energy through the body, it works on 4 levels, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
Reiki is a gentle treatment and safely compliments any other therapy while promoting health and well being. It can be used during any stage of life and is wonderfully balancing for transitions. Reiki during pregnancy and the 4th trimester is perfection!
The wonderful thing about a treatment is that the healing energy will travel where it is needed. If you are feeling tired then you will feel refreshed, if you are anxious then you will feel calmer, if you are distressed then you will feel comforted. It balances at every level.
The treatment should last around 45 mins, as with all my treatments allow a little longer for your first visit.
Pregnancy Massage £50 - £65
Pregnancy is a time of major physical and emotional change. It an intense season in your life and I feel that every woman should treat her body with the tender and loving care she will undoubtedly give to her baby in abundance. Taking time out for yourself is an important part of self care and very grounding. Reiki and massage provide a wide range of benefits to your body, mind and soul during all trimesters of your beautiful pregnancy. Massage and Reiki can:
- Alleviate stress on joints
- Help remedy muscular pains and cramps
- increases blood circulation and helps to maintain good blood pressure
- Soothes and relaxes the nervous system which releases endorphins. this is great for relaxation and aids sleep
- Promotes relaxation and is a stress reliever.
The safe, relaxing and nurturing space I provide you with offers the ideal support, loving touch and balancing energy that's just perfect to support you through this transition into your 4th trimester.
Postnatal goddess massage £65
Full body postnatal massage blended with the traditional womb massage with rebozo wrapping. A treatment that is loving, warming, healing and celebrating your AMAZING postnatal body. With hand made warming oil and wrapping inspired by traditional methods of postnatal healing.
This massage goes beyond the physical benefit and has amazing spiritual and emotional benefits.
This treatment should take around one hour, allow longer for your first visit.
Full body woman worship massage £50- £65
This is a full body honouring and worship of your amazing body! Tender and loving of course. Great for releasing tension, soothing those aches and stretching out that stiffness, relaxing and comforting. 45 mins to 1hr allow longer for your 1st visit.
Scar tissue massage and fascia release £50
I have advanced clinical massage training including fascia techniques for treating scar tissue. This work is gentle yet effective. Women have noticed a difference in range of movement and in the comfort of their c section scars also a better relationship and connection to this part of their body. I believe that the emotions attached to the scar are as relevant to healing as the physical scar itself, so I give this treatment with gentle and loving care. There is no time limit to achieving results from this massage, the scar can be 12 weeks old or 12 years old, it's never too late. Contact me to discuss how I could treat you and your scar.
“It was so comforting to have my hips and stomach touched in such a loving way. I hadn't even looked at my body since giving birth 2 weeks ago. I feel so held and special thanks to those magic hands!”
"I felt so relaxed after just one treatment. I didn't expect my back and shoulder pain to improve so quickly. Gemma has such a natural and reassuring touch, I will definitely be going back!"

Bengkung style belly binding (optional)
This important part of recovery and healing is traditionally used to comfort, support and hold that womb space. benkung is originally a Malaysian method of postnatal care and recovery though many similar versions of this exist around the world, Mexico, China, Pakistan and many African cultures all have a version of a sacred postnatal recovery period including wrapping, massage and feeding. Belly binding can feel like a real spiritual closure of your pregnancy, it looks and feels amazing too! You are left in the belly bind either overnight or for 3 days or however long feels comfortable.
What is belly binding?
Belly Binding is an ancient technique consisting of binding a postpartum woman’s abdomen to promote recovery and provide comfort and support to her healing womb. Made from 100% cotton fabric, the bind is wrapped snuggly from just below the woman’s chest to below her hips. This can provide support to her abdominal wall and muscles, improves posture, supports loose ligaments and hips, and assists her organs to return to their pre-pregnancy positions.
the session ends with a serving of cleansing broth, herbal tea and a sweet treat.
You also have the option to end this experience with a food box at a discounted price of just £40
