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!

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. Hannah Harrison

Hannah Lapka

Sport and Remedial
With our busy lives, even though we tend to be more active and fitness aware, we don’t always put in the time to look after or protect our bodies from the demands we put on them. Life itself can also be very stressful – which takes its toll on our bodies too!
Do you regularly exercise and then find you suffer from a constant niggle or repeated injury? Are you suffering from pain due to poor work posture or constant lifting? Do you have tight neck and shoulder muscles from stress?
Starting with an initial conversation to find out more about you and your specific needs I then use a variety of specialised massage techniques personalised to ease away your pain and discomfort. You leave with specific stretches which you can use to enhance treatment between appointments, improve posture or strengthen muscles to avoid further issues.
Sports Massage is a more focused and deep massage used to treat all sorts of individuals from athletes to desk workers and to treat all sorts of injuries from runner’s calf strain to a tight Trapezius due to stress or poor posture.
I am a client focused, capable and confident therapist who likes to listen to your needs and requirements and work with you to provide an individualised treatment, relieve injury, help you prepare or recover from a sporting event or for regular maintenance to prevent injury, enhance recovery and promote wellbeing.

My rates are:

45 minutes: 35
60 minutes: 45
90 minutes: 60
