Her thriving private practice has been based in Totnes since 2006.
My commitment to health care started in 1982 with my nurse training. I successfully qualified and followed a career in medical nursing, accident and emergency and finally in a hospice. But my nursingleft me feeling disconnected from myself and from the patients I wanted to help. While studying meditation and ki Aikido( a marshal art) I was introduced to the idea of a different concept of medicine, a health care that is complementary to our orthodox medicine, and I found Shiatsu.
A few years ago, I decided to change the direction of my life by studying for a professional diploma in Holistic Massage Therapy at the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork. Now, as afully-qualified, registered practitioner with the Massage Training Institute, I practice in Plympton, near Plymouth (see appointments), and other venues in the southwest.
Many thanks for stopping by my website, I look forward to welcoming you with one of my relaxing treatments. I offer a great range of treatments here at Papillon Holistic Therapy from Reflexology andIndian head massage, to a Karuna Reiki Treatment, full body Swedish massage and now the amazing missing link in holistic therapy, Myofascial release.

While our other four senses (sight, hearing, smell, and taste) are located in specific parts of the body, the sense of touch is found all over, the hands are one of the most sensitive parts of ourbody. We move our arms to express ourselves and to manipulate the outer world. They are particularly human limbs since most other animals use their fore limbs primarily for getting around. We see the world in these five different ways; these are five ways of feeling.

I started practising as a Massage Therapist in 1993 in Plymouth, Devon. I enjoyed it so much that I have gone on to study and qualify in Clinical Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Indian Head and ShoulderMassage and Reiki (a traditional form of healing). I have also undertaken an 18 month course in natural nutrition. I have had a varied and rewarding career, with over 18 years' experience and knowledge.
