About me

My story

 After being diagnosed with a long-term illness in 1995 I started to  search different ways of living as naturally as possible, changing my  diet to include foods that would help improve my health and energy  levels. I started to practice yoga too.


My partner (now husband) and I started a family, and when our two  children were still young I found I had a desire to find more ways to  strengthen my body and mind.  

Training

 I discovered and introduced myself to massage and bodywork in 2002 by  starting a Diploma in massage, training through MTI (Massage Training  Institute) in Norwich. The course left me inspired and hungry for more. I  went on to assist on the same training and qualified as a Holistic  Massage Teacher in 2007. 


 Throughout my journey I continue to develop my knowledge and skills by  training on advanced courses and workshops. These include other massage  therapies that I practice: Indian Head Massage (qualified in 2003),  Seated Acupressure Therapy (Diploma in 2005), Kansa Vatki Foot Massage  (in 2012) 

Nurturing

 I have found that my path has enabled my condition to be stable, and  although it can occasionally slow me down, I continue to enjoy, develop  and extend my knowledge. 


 I really enjoy working with clients and they leave feeling relaxed and  nurtured. I aim to soothe away your stresses and strains, and help you  towards a happy and healthier way of life.

Massages

Holistic Massage

 Holistic massage for me is an individual  treatment, using my hands, forearms and elbows to apply the appropriate  amount of pressure that you and your body needs. This allows you to let go of your physical tensions as well as relax and expand your (emotional) mind.


 Through this communication of touch I am  able to find and target areas of need. From this intuitive and  person-centred approach, I help you find your ability to harness your  healing benefits and powers. 

 

Pregnancy Massage

 I have specific and specialist training in pregnancy massage.

During  the exciting journey from pre-natal to post-natal, women can often  experience Sciatica, oedema, back ache, indigestion, insomnia and other  pregnancy related condtions.


 My pregnancy massage is fantastic in dealing with these issues, as well  as those aches, pains and niggles that can continue all throughout the  pregnancy. It is an ideal way to help you feel calm and soothed during  this joyful but sometimes uncomfortable time. 

Acupressure

Seated Acupressure Massage is a sequence developed from traditional  Oriental Anma and Shiatsu style massage techniques to improve health,  energy flow, and reduce tension.

Received through the clothes, without oils, in a comfortable ergonomically designed chair.


 These seated treatments take 45 minutes, which includes time for a short consultation. 

Kansa Vatki Foot Massage

  

This massage has been practiced in India for centuries. Following the  Ayurvedic tradition, which works to resore the body's balance thereby  improving health and well-being in the individual. At the  heart of the treatment is a small three metal bowl, Copper, Zinc and Tin  which helps to re-balance the tridosha of Vata, Pitta and Kapha.


  • Copper helps in reducing pain, inflammation, arthritis and also improves the quality of haemoglobin.
  • Zinc helps in proper functioning of immune system, digestion, control of diabetes etc
  • Tin is believed to be helpful in digestion, relieving headaches and insomnia.

 The use of clarified butter or ghee is  traditional and the treatment involves working on the feet and lower  legs, with particular emphasis on marma points. After a Kansa Vatki foot massage, you will feel like you are walking on air.

Indian Head Massage

Indian  Head Massage is based on an ancient Eastern form of healing, which  relaxes and harmonises the  body's natural balance, in turn promoting  physical, psychological and emotional well-being. 


It  helps reduce muscular and nervous tension, and improves circulation.  The improved circulation helps to detoxify the body, leaving a feeling  of tranquility and inner calm.


This seated massage is received  fully-clothed and works on the upper body, shoulders, upper arms, neck,  scalp and face. The areas are massaged using firm yet gentle rhythmic movements  that involve acupressure points called Marma points. Oils were  traditionally used on the head, however the use of oils is optional.

Testimonials

Simon H - Musician and TV Presenter

 " I began visiting Hilary three years ago in order to alleviate the  symptoms of a long running Repetative Strain Injury (RSI). Conventional  medicines such as anti-inflammatory gels and pain relief tablets were  only masking the issue, and it wasn't until I began my treatment of  Holistic Massage that I began to feel any lasting improvement. During  the course of therapy I also began to realise the well-being benefit of  Holistic Massage, and removing blockages and realising elements of my  muscular system also made me comfortable and relaxed for several days  afterwards.

Though my RSI is well under control now I still  attend Hilary's practice regularly as a way of staying free of any  general muscular ailments and to maintain a good healthy balance."

Sally H - Psychopherapist

"I've  been a very satisifed client for several years. I would recommend  Hilary without reservation. Having taught massage myself I do know what a  good practitioner looks like."

Graeme Malone - Mundesley

"I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Hilary as she qualified some  ten years ago. I have come to trust her intuition regarding when, where  and how to work. I enjoy being able to adjust and develop what is  required as we go along. Recently in getting over a Lymes infection her  thoroughness and application were really important in my getting over  it. I can wholeheartedly recommend her."

Sarah W - Office worker

 "I first met Hilary in 2010. From the moment I began my treatment,  Hilary has made me feel at ease and relaxed. Hilary shows genuine care  and consideration and always takes time to see how I am. The massage is  suited to what is best for you and concentrates on the areas you require  work on; with this personalised approach I always receive a massage  which benefits me as it targets any problem areas. I can honestly say  that I feel a real benefit after my massage; I feel relaxed, totally  chilled out and calm. The combination of massage and advice given by  Hilary has helped improve my overall health and well-being and I would  thoroughly recommend it."

Phil H - Company Group Director

 " I suffer from Cervical Dystonia affecting my neck, and my doctor  suggested that massage might help ease my symptoms, which are nagging  pain and stiffness. I tried his suggestion and find it not only helps me  manage my neck pain, but eases all sorts of stresses and tensions.  Hilary always naturally hones in on the areas that need the most work,  and it is now an important part of me looking after myself."
