Massage Therapists. sonja breach 2

Sonja Breach

Myofascial Release
Indian Head Massage
Facial Rejuvenation Massage

When your body starts telling you it has had enough - whether it's stress, muscle strains and injuries or "office back" I can help. I am an experienced remedial massage therapist with a busy practice and as well as working during the week I have a Saturday clinic.

What some of her clients say:

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Sonya for treating my mother. She came home seeming much more relaxed and happy, feeling able to deal with all that is going on in her life at the moment. I will definitely be booking her another session when she next visits! Thanks again!! SA

With a three day course coming up I wasn't looking forward to either the travel, heavy bags or the sitting still with a back gone into spasm but after a single session with Sonja I was barely aware of my back the whole way through and managed really well - thank you so much. EC

Facial Rejuvenation
Treat yourself to a boost with my new facial rejuvenation massage!
Many people suffer facial tension which builds up in the facial muscles causing puffiness, lines and wrinkles. This specifically
designed treatment uses a blend of Japanese Anma pressure point massage and Indian Ayurvedic massage techniques to gently relax, smooth, lift, plump and tone the face, releasing this tension, calming and balancing the mind and rejuvenating the body, helping you to both look and feel younger!

Facial Rejuvenation 60 mins 45

For remedial and de-stress massage treatments
30 mins 27.50 (follow up appointments only)
45 mins 35.00

Geraldine Peschel

Swedish, Deep Tissue and Remedial Massage
Whether you need remedial work for a specific musculo-skeletal problem or just some space to unwind, I give you an individual treatment. Using a combination of advanced techniques I can tailor your session to your particular needs.

Relaxation through massage promotes healing and improvement in all aspects of physical, mental and emotional health and can empower and revitalise us to cope with the daily stresses of life.

Before training as a massage therapist I was a mental health nurse and this has given me an enhanced awareness of the mind body connection. I love to see the benefits of my treatments and how clients go on to lead healthier and happier lives

High quality Swedish, Deep Tissue and Remedial massage in a calm and relaxing environment, to alleviate stress, ease general aches and pains, specific muscular injury, tension and chronic pain bringing comfort and relaxation.

Massage Therapists. Stefania de Cara

Stefania De Cara

Do you spend long hours sitting in front of a computer screen?

Is your back aching, your neck stiff?

Are you feeling stressed and finding it difficult to let go and relax?

Whether you are desk bound and suffering from lack of movement or a mum who is on the go all the time and carrying small children around, holistic massage can help you rebalance those tired aching muscles, let go and relax.

I was born and raised in Genoa, Italy but always had a fascination with English culture and long dreamt of moving to London. After finally making the leap in 2006, I immersed myself in a busy career and London life. It was during this period, dominated by short evenings and weekends, that an old back injury came back to haunt me. This severe, debilitating back pain led me from specialist to specialist until I finally found an effective cure in physio and massage - and with it, discovered my passion for massage therapy. So I really understand both the stresses and strains of a busy life and the difficulty of living with pain. Now with a small son of my own I also know how important it is for a new mum to have some help with the stresses and strains, both physical and emotional, of life with small children.

I studied Holistic Massage in Hammersmith Hospital, London, and with an ambition to help others experiencing back pain, joint pain, anxiety and numerous other injuries, conditions and disorders, I set about starting my career as a therapist. I have now relocated to Exeter, and expanded my skills with a certificate in deep tissue massage. I am now studying remedial techniques.

What her clients say
Stefania has a great sense of the muscles she is working on, teasing and easing them into losing the tension they hold. She also checks regularly that her client is comfortable and that she is applying the right amount of pressure. I would recommend Stefania to anyone.

I have been going to Stefania for a regular massage for a few months now. She is very attentive, checks you are comfortable and adapts to what you need. I love how determined she is to help my aches feel better! Highly recommended.

I've had 3 x separate massages from Stefania and all of them have been incredible and keep me coming back for more! As well as being a truly relaxing experience, I have ongoing shoulder pain which Stefania has helped enormously with. Couldn't recommend her more highly!

Stefania is amazing and I couldn't recommend her highly enough. Very relaxing, set within a great place to unwind and de-stress. Stefania also fixed my shoulder within two sessions and now it feels back to normal !

Appointment length and fees:

45 minutes: 30
60 minutes: 40
90 minutes: 55

Massage Therapists. Honor Rocke

Honor Rocke

In our busy lives we find little or no time to nurture and look after ourselves, this leads to muscle tension throughout our bodies, mainly accumulating in our neck, shoulders and back. This in turn can develop into further health issues.

As a therapist, I feel it is important to create a calm and peaceful space for you to escape from the demands of life, in which you can relax and recharge. Working intuitively I use a combination of a deeply relaxing massage including deep tissue techniques to release muscle tension, assist relaxation and rebalancing of the mind and body. In turn this will leave you feeling calm and relaxed ready to face the world again.

Thai Foot Massage An invigorating and relaxing treatment, incorporating treatment to the reflex points on the feet and a lower leg and knee massage.

After making my own life changes and recognizing the benefits of massage and other natural therapies I decided to train as a therapist, following my passion in helping and supporting my clients' health and wellbeing as they travel through the challenges that life gives us, to find a healthier, happier and fulfilling way to live their lives.
