Michelle Sanson
Complementary Therapist

I offer lovely, relaxing holistic therapies that help the body reach and maintain optimum health.  Therapies such as Reflexology, Swedish massage, Aromatherapy massage and Hot Stone massage have far reaching health benefits.

The demands and strains of everyday life often leave us feeling overwhelmed, tired with physical aches and pains and imbalances in our body.  All too often we get stressed which may lead to illness manifesting in the body.  These holistic therapies balance and aid in the ease of stress and tension whilst promoting a sense of deep relaxation.  I am committed to achieving the very best for my clients.
