About the Touch Therapy Centre

"I set up this centre to create an environment that is tranquil and comforting, and above all else, understanding."

Having battled cancer twice myself, I understand the need for gentle touch and care when undergoing such aggressive treatment. I aim to provide cancer sufferers and indeed anyone with their own health issues, relief and a little time out from the hamster wheel of treatments, hospital visits and doctor appointments. In doing so I help provide relief from some of the nasty side effects that treatment can bring.

Many patients going through serious illnesses such as cancer may expect to lose their hair or feel ill during cancer treatment but many do not expect to develop sensitive, sore and irritated skin, or to lose their nails or develop stiffness in the joints.

Touch Therapy through gentle, light massage can help alleviate some of these conditions, soothe compromised skin and help decrease the associate stress levels and as a result help boost the immune system and aim to promote better sleep patterns.

Something for Everyone

The Touch Therapy Centre is not just for serious illness sufferers.
It is there for everyone who would like to take time out to recharge, relax and re-energise. It is for anyone seeking a more personal 1-to-1 caring environment, something that a large spa cannot offer.
