Becoming a Massage Therapist

Before starting her own practice, Ros was working in administrative roles before transitioning into childcare for over 10 years. ‘What I enjoyed most among other things during my time in childcare is working collaboratively with parents. Many of these parents were very knowledgeable about alternative medicine and home remedies–not just when it came to cure but also prevention! But I’ve always had a very holistic perspective on health and it has been something I was lucky enough to grow up with,’ Ros explained. 

It was around 4 years ago that inspired by her conversations with parents, Ros arrived at a crossroads. She decided to have a complete career break and continue her studies. ‘I had a foundation in my university education in Live Sciences and I went on to study Reiki and Massage Therapy,’ she continued passionately.

Holistic Massage Therapy

‘I like to build on foundations from Eastern esoteric and Chinese medicine with a holistic approach of combining the best of ancient medicine with modern knowledge about the human anatomy. I believe there are so many complementary therapies out there that ultimately what makes one therapist, myself included, stand out over the rest is their philosophy. 

Some clients just want a massage and there is nothing wrong with that. But others appreciate that my approach is more holistic, infusing Reiki and Aromatherapy. No two treatments are ever the same; I tailor them to my customer’s physical needs and psychological circumstances. I can travel to clients and I cover South West, West, and Central London or if preferred, clients can visit me. I have a lovely treatment room where I can carry out massage therapy treatments.’
