Claire French is a fully qualified and insured holistic massage therapist specialising in Ayurvedic treatments including full body and Indian head massage. She is a member of the Guild of Holistic Therapists
After training in 2014 in Swedish and sports massage techniques, she spent time working in Goa, where became interested in Ayurvedic massage. Ayurveda means knowledge of life and is the ancient practice that covers all things relating to Indian culture, philosophy, health, and nutrition, including yoga and massage.
What’s different about the Ayurvedic treatment is that as well as the regular range of firm or gentle strokes you find in a Swedish massage, it incorporates work on marma or acupressure points and energy flow. She also uses a special 100% natural oil, a coconut and sesame base mixed with herbs from India which work to heal the skin, muscles and even the internal organs. Clients often report that the treatment makes them feel uplifted when they are down, and grounded when they are frazzled or anxious.
Benefits of treatment include:
Reduction of stress and tension
Relaxation of the body
Stimulation of circulation
Toning the skin
Increase in flexibility
Reduction in risk of injury
Improvement of hair lustre
Aid to sleep
“Just wanted to say thank you for such an amazing massage. I left feeling energised, recharged and a lot more mobile around my back, neck and shoulders. I have already recommended you to my friends and family and will definitely book again.”
