Release, Relax, Unwind
FOUNDER & DIRECTOR
"Anyone wishing to study medicine, must master the art of massage."
I set up SKYN DEEP in 2017 after successfully passing my ITEC Level 3 in Holistic Massage Therapy with a distinction.
After rehabilitating from a car accident which led me to develop Fibromyalgia, a long-term health condition that causes chronic widespread pain and severe fatigue, I was inspired to retrain as a body therapist following my own journey with pain. Armed with a new enthusiasm for life, I know my mission is to assist others to heal their own pain through working in a therapeutic alliance. We all live with pain, whether physical, mental or emotional, and part of my gift is to be able to help clients release and heal that.
I now specialise in a wide variety of mind and body therapies, including Soft Tissue & Remedial Therapy, Pre & Post-Natal Massage, and Oncology. I am a firm believer in the mind-body connection and use my 1st class Masters in Psychology to inform all of my treatments.
SOFT TISSUE & REMEDIAL THERAPY
Also known as sports massage, areas of dysfunction are identified through an in-depth assessment of your movement, posture, and gait. I will then apply a combination of Neuromuscular, (NMT), Soft Tissue Release (STR), Muscle Energy (MET), Myofascial Release (MFR), and Positional Release (PR) techniques, as appropriate. Everyone can benefit from STRT regardless of ability, age, or current level of physical activity.
If you feel like you're running on empty, go from Zero to Zen with Soul Serenity™, my signature massage treatment, and version of traditional Swedish relaxation. Circulation is improved, toxins are eliminated and soreness is soothed. Using a combination of slow, soothing massage strokes, and a sumptuous blend of Lavender & Ylang-Ylang in organic Grapeseed oil, a deep feeling of relaxation and balance is created.
Be transported to the beautiful island of Hawaii with this ancient and traditional massage. The ebb and flow of the Pacific Ocean is created in this deeply relaxing treatment. Exotic Pikake and Plumeria essential oils are expertly blended into a carrier of traditional Tamanu and Kukui nut oils, which can be adapted for those with a nut allergy.
JUST THE TWO OF US
Book any two back-to-back treatments for you and one other person and I will treat you both, one after the other.
Please specify which treatment you'd each like on the booking form.
Oncology diagnosis and treatment can be a time of great upheaval. The use of specialised gentle massage and therapeutic touch techniques is often of great complimentary benefit. This treatment will require prior written approval from your specialist that outlines your diagnosis, treatment, and suitability for oncology massage therapy. This treatment can be adapted for all types and stages of oncology treatment.
THE MUSCLE MELTER™
My expertly crafted version of deep tissue uses a high 30% concentration magnesium gel, applied transdermally, to target prominent areas of pain and tension. With pressure tailored to you, I will use a combination of advanced deep tissue techniques, applied through the use of a warming blend of Cajeput, Clove, Camphor, Cinnamon and Menthol essential oils in an organic Cannabis Sativa carrier oil (Hemp Seed).
THE SACRED OILS™
Finally, an aromatherapy treatment that is as unique as you are. Your current physical, emotional, spiritual and psychological needs are ascertained. A range of essential oils are presented: your olfactory sense will guide you to the ones you need. A skin analysis will determine the best carrier oil for you and your sacred blend will be created. It will then be applied through a fusion of intuitively guided therapeutic techniques.
For thousands of years, Bamboo has represented fertility, youth, prosperity, and serenity in many different Asian countries, the continent from which this treatment stems. In this deeply relaxing massage, I will glide different sizes of warmed bamboo across your body with a heavenly blend of Pink Lotus Flower in Peach Kernel oil.
Soothe stresses and strains, revive heavy, tired legs, and relax your aching back with my specialised pre and postnatal massage. A beautiful blend of Rose Otto, Lemon, and Lavender essential oils comfort your senses, whilst luxurious organic Argan oil deeply nourishes your skin. Mama Massage™ is available from13 weeks and up to 3 months postpartum.
Your lymphatic system is fundamental to optimal immune function, protecting you from infection, poor health, and disease. The Detox™ uses a combination of manual lymphatic drainage techniques to assist the clearance of toxins held in your lymph vessels and nodes. This very gentle, light treatment increases circulation and helps relieve swollen joints, boost energy levels, improve mood, and can support post-surgery recovery.
