I first became interested in complementary therapies whilst working in my first job after graduating from my degree in Social Sciences at University in Bristol. I worked for a organisation supporting people with learning disabilities in a community setting which used complementary therapies; after witnessing the benefits experienced by the service users I decided to do my own research into this area of work and was particularly drawn to Reflexology. I found the principles and benefits of this therapy fascinating and even after 14 years experience I still do! I undertook my Diploma in Reflexology and Anatomy and Physiology at Bristol School of Holistic Therapies in 2001. This course provided me with an excellenet standard of training.
Throughout the last 14 years since qualifying I have provided treatments for clients with a variety of needs including acute stress disorders, depression, terminal illness, IBS, PMS, pregnancy symptoms and preparation for labour, pain relief and general aches and pains. On a personal level I treated my own father during his final fight with cancer. It was this that cemented my passion for Reflexology as I witnessed the soothing effects which this treatment provided. I have also used Reflexology and massage on my own children from babies with teething and colic to toddlers with coughs and colds!
Since developing Serenity I expanded my skills and undertook professional training in Aromatherapy massage. It gives me great satisfaction to offer the combination of relaxing massage along with the healing properties of essential oils. My husband Simon Murray also joined me in 2015 undertaking training in Deep Tissue and Sports Massage. We are looking forward to meeting the needs of people who require a deeper and firmer massage whether it be for ongoing back problems or sports performance. Massage has always felt very natural to us at Serenity and we thoroughly enjoy witnessing the relief it can offer people.
We believe in treating clients with the highest degree of professionalism and care, always ensuring that each treatment is tailored to the individual needs of the person and that the environment in which it takes place promotes a strong sense of relaxation.
As a qualified Baby Massage Instructor I also offer classes 121 or small groups upon request. We hold professional qualifications and Insurance to practice professionally in all our treatments so you can be assured that you are in safe hands.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss your individual needs, I would be happy to answer any questions you may have, details can be found on the contacts page.
I look forward to treating you!
