beginnings

 

I moved from west London to the Lancashire village of Wray in the lovely Lune Valley, tucked away amongst the hills and dramatic landscape of this northern-most corner of the county.

The village, not far from Lancaster is close to the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, but Wray has remained a peaceful and unspoiled. The ancient landscape feels very nurturing and inspires me in many ways. 

 When my youngest of three children was a year old I became involved with the Dances of Universal Peace.  I went along to the weekly sessions, which at that time seemed to attract lots of therapists and body workers, and through talking with them my interest in remedial massage began. Having a young family ruled out the possibility of training just at that time but the year before my youngest started school I began to explore the possibilities.

This was 1994.  I no longer felt qualified to work in admin - computers had arrived and I had no idea how one of those worked but this was the catalyst I needed. A year later I began my practice, The Treatment Room, here in Wray after qualifying as a remedial massage therapist at the Northern College of Remedial Massage in Blackpool.  A year later I began a two year diploma in person-centred counselling which I completed and then trained in Vibronic Homeopathy. 

Since then, as you can see from the Menu list, I have added other therapies and treatments and to further enhance the service I can offer to my clients, I have  also recently developed the 'Garden Retreat'.

My aim is to support all those who seek a fuller, happier, healthier life by offering therapies, treatments, activities and services which build on each individual's own     motivation, strength and energy for living. 

Apart from my work, I have many interests ~ gardening, reading, knitting, making rag rugs, cross stitch, spinning, most recently felting and cooking too.  Having the time to do all those things would be great but I do attend a brilliant yoga class every week and endeavour to do some yoga practice at home.

The children are all grown now giving me time to develop my practice and Dance activities and to grow and develop in all aspects of my life and work.
