Massage & Reflexology

Massage therapy is manual manipulation of muscles, tendons and ligaments to enhance your health and well-being. Reflexology treats specific areas of the body by applying pressure to their corresponding reflexes in the hands and feet.

Unlike many spas and retreats, we  offer a very personalised, therapeutic approach so you get the most out of your treatment.

Having spent quite some time as a massage therapist at a number of the leading retreats and spas, I got a good look at the industry as a whole. I noticed that while there were a few companies that offered massage treatment, there were very few that offered a personally tailored, therapeutic approach. This is why I ventured out on my own and created Healing Flow.
