For a long time I lived my life without realising the importance of my own wellbeing. Now that I have come to value my own welbeing and benefit from ancient and modern methods to help promote it, I am passionate about sharing that with others. I was looking for the best way to help others, and my natural inclination was towards massage. It came naturally to me, so as well as training as a yoga teacher and sound therapist, I developed my massage skills by studying and practising Ayurvedic Yoga Massage with Despina.
I particularly love applying the knowledge that I have gained through my own practices to help clients change their lives in a way that supports them more. It can be small or radical changes, but my passion is making a difference for my clients’ wellbeing, and I have been supporting others’ wellbeing now for a decade through teaching yoga, sound healing and more recently with Ayurvedic Yoga Massage.
What our clients say
I had a wonderful back and shoulder message from Alison. We discussed how my back and shoulders felt knotted and tight and what the massage would entail together with the products she would use. She has a firm touch and was able to pin point the knots. By the end of it I felt really relaxed and knot free. Highly recommended.
I have known Alison for several year’s and been fortunate to benefit from her calming breathing sessions and wonderful gong baths. As lifelong insomniac, I still use her breathing techniques to focus and help clear my mind before sleep.
Recently Alison came to my home to give me a back and shoulder massage. I had been feeling some aches and tightness in lower back and left shoulder. She brought all her equipment and oils and set up very efficiently. She was very reassuring, explaining what she was going to do and even incorporated some breathing practice at the start, win win for me!
Using the oils as well as powder gave two very different experiences, but I have to say this was wonderful and I loved the more textured massaging with the powder. The shoulder treatment and just right amount of pressure almost instantly relieved the tightness. Alison did some great massage on my lower back, concentrating on outer hips and this was so relaxing and eased the aches I had considerably.
This was a wonderful experience Alison thank you, and I’m looking forward to further treatments and would highly recommend you to my family and friends.
Alison gave me a back, arm and abdominal massage which left me with a sense of wellbeing that lasted several days.
The massage was firm and positive. It was the first time I had had a belly massage and I enjoyed it. I am looking forward to my next one.
I had a great back, shoulder & neck yoga massage with Alison at her home recently. Having previously had an uncomfortable sports massage I wasn’t really sure if this was going to be for me. I can now happily say it definitely was, with the use of powder combined with oil not only did my muscles feel more relaxed but my skin felt great too.
Knowing I was a little nervous about the intensity of pressure that would be applied Ali went to great lengths explaining the process and continually asked throughout the session if I was happy or could she change anything.
Her room was really light and airey plus the yoga music in the background made it a really relaxing and enjoyable experience
I really enjoyed my massage with Alison. Never experienced anything like it. Amazing. It felt like she got into places I didn’t know could be accessed and felt very beneficial. I would highly recommend!
Amazing massage from Alison yesterday. I felt the benefits almost instantly. Calming, safe atmosphere in the room. I enjoyed the whole experience!
