It may be small and bijoux, but my cosy little therapy room, tucked away in the eaves of Ash Cottage delivers wellbeing in abundance for those looking to retreat away for an hour or two and experience healing, soul soothing treatments.
During my treatments I teach my clients how to breathe deeply into the abdomen, this technique has been proven to quieten the mind, detox the cells and release tension throughout the whole of the body. I also use sound healing through each session; sound waves are the medicine of the future, with oscillating vibrations running through each organ, tissue and cell. The power of touch enhanced by using a beautiful edit of curated, holistic skincare, full of wild crafted essential oils, probiotics and crystals takes my bespoke facials and body therapy to a higher state of wellness…
Since moving to Ash Cottage 8 years ago, coming home has always felt like a therapy to me…Whether it’s the abundance of greenery surrounding the house, being nestled in the woods, all cool and languid in the summer heat, or sitting out looking over the fields, the home to several horses gently grazing all day long. I would find it hard to live anywhere else.
Many of my clients’ see this little slice of the Cotswolds as their ‘retreat’. Indulging in a beautiful facial or de-stressing with a long, slow massage, with a wellbeing retreat vibe to boot really adds to the experience they say, which is wonderful to hear. For me, adding extra layers of sensory stimulation to a therapy is so important, and one that I strive to make special for each and every person I treat.
From the deep inhalations and breath work, using the purest essences to stimulate the memory-evoking limbic system, to the koshi chime sound healing at the end, it all adds up to ensure the best experience for each and every therapy.
