a bit about me
After nearly 30 years of living in the South of England I recently moved back to my home county of North Yorkshire to the fishing village of Staithes.
As I approached 50 I increasingly knew it was time to make a big change in my life and I was drawn to the big skies, vast beauty and rugged coastline of the North York Moors and, in particular, the magic and timelessness of Staithes. It is a place to simply sit and be. To gain perspective. A place to rest and recuperate and it is from my home here that I run Staithes Retreats.
Initially training as a reflexologist in 1997 I worked in various spas and clinics in London and the south east for many years. Having been fascinated by Chinese medicine and benefiting from acupuncture treatment and Chinese herbs over the years, I graduated from the London College of Traditional Acupuncture in 2011 and combine, where necessary, both acupuncture and reflexology in my treatments. I also practice Indian Head massage.
I have experience of working with a wide range of conditions and find acupuncture treatment can be particularly effective in reducing pain, lowering stress, improving fertility and boosting your sense of wellbeing. Reflexology is a wonderful way to relax and is beneficial for rebalancing the mind, body & spirit. I am particularly interested in understanding the root cause of illness and use diet and lifestyle assessment where appropriate.
I look forward to welcoming you to Staithes!
