Massage with Rosie

I chose to practice massage therapy a few years ago as I was initially intrigued by its simplicity yet profound effect on calming the body and mind. I believe that our bodies have all they need within to heal themselves from the mental trauma and daily stress we put them though. YOU Massage Therapy is a space where you can rest and receive hands-on treatment to encourage your body-mind to realign with its natural state. Having studied and worked in western medical science for over ten years, I know what our bodies get up to during periods of disease. ‘Dis-ease’.

So come and get easy with yourself and try out one of my memorable massages.

The types of massage I offer include:

So, What Do GPs Think Of Massage?

gpA little while ago we were given the great pleasure of being involved with a workshop being run at the University Hospital Southampton Foundation Trust… They had a day of training with local GPs, where their aim was to introduce them to a series of complementary therapies and see what they thought.
