I was a Registered General Nurse for 23 years, the last 10 years of which as a Theatre Nurse. I became disillusioned with the NHS and the lack of holistic care, that had been there when I first became a Nurse.
In 1999 I started a Beauty Therapy Course and then various Complementary Therapy courses including basic Swedish Massage. I opened a Salon in Hereford in 2001 and have been striving ever since to bring Complementary therapies to a wider audience, to show how they can help to improve and maintain health and well being.
However, the more massage I was doing, the more I was injuring myself. I was getting to the stage where I might have to give up massaging altogether, a prospect I wasn’t looking forward to. I began my journey of discovery of NO HANDS Massage in 2013.
I haven’t looked back since. In fact in November 2016 I became a NO HANDS Master! In September 2017 I was endorsed by Gerry Pyves to work as a Supervising Master. I can now offer Master Support Sessions to other therapists on their journeys. I was a Licensed NO HANDS Independent Instructor training students from my clinic in Herefordshire for 3 years. I’m taking a break from running the courses currently, preferring to concentrate on my clinical work, but am still part of the training team for Advanced courses at the Head Office on Morecambe when I’m needed.
I have a couple of staff on Maternity leave at the salon currently so have had to work more hours there again. I am seeing my massage clients at the salon in 2019 but hope to be back to my very peaceful clinic at home by the end of the year.
I am fully qualified and insured to offer the public professional Massage treatment.
I trade under the name of Mercia Massage Clinic at Sutton St Nicholas, Hereford.
My salon is called Beautonics where I am currently seeing most of my clients.
I have a long interest in all natural approaches to health and self healing. I am very passionate about touch and particularly NO HANDS Massage. This means I “walk the talk” of Massage therapy and get regular monthly treatments myself! These treatments enable me, to be me.
Other interests away from massage are reading, particularly historical novels, and being with my partner, daughter and my cats!
I believe that regular Massage is absolutely essential for a healthy, happy and successful life, which is why I make sure I get my own regular treatments every month. By having treatments myself it does mean that I can talk from the heart about them and share my experiences if people want to know. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you will experience the same things, as we are all individuals. To encourage you to experience the power of NO HANDS, I have a very generous introductory offer which means you can book a treatment at a very affordable price. Ring to ask me for details, or alternatively you can contact me through this website.
