Book an AYM treatment with Jacqueline at her Leeds treatment room:

I studied Ayurvedic yoga massage levels 1-4 with Despina in September 2021, I immediately fell in love with it and started practising as much as possible straight away. In 2022 I completed my levels 5 and 6, which means in addition to being able to provide pregnancy treatments, I am now a course assistant during the therapist trainings and able to lead our 4-Hour workshops. At the start of 2023 I completed my level 7, enabling me to tailor my treatments to people with a variety of neuropathic pains.

Being able to offer AYM treatments has been life changing for me, as I have been actively looking for the best way to help people feel well in their bodies and minds for many years. AYM feels completely different to all other therapeutic bodywork: it is a deep tissue massage that incorporates assisted yoga stretches and calming breathwork- to encourage the nervous system to relax. It is done on a futon on the floor, which means the therapist can use different parts of their body and their body weight to get the most out of each movement and to get the maximum benefit for the client. There are a huge range of techniques and approaches that can be taken, allowing practitioners to truly tailor any treatment to the client and their needs, from deep pressure to gentle soothing touch, from remedial work to the depths of relaxation, to energising treatments. Each massage is nurturing and always centred around the individual. The assisted stretches, tractions and mobilisation techniques (if appropriate for the client) take the treatments to a whole other level. I absolutely love it and can’t believe how lucky I am that this practice is in my life.

My background is as a carer and support worker. For 15 years I worked with the eldery, people with Autism and with adults and children with a variety of learning, physical and emotional difficulties, including Parkinson’s, Cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome, MS, Spina bifida and acquired brain injury. I loved my job, and I learned so much about communication, empathy and empowering others, having had the honour of supporting incredibly beautiful people and their families.

A few years ago, I began to feel I wanted to help others in a different way: to be able to support people with their physical health, comfort and range of movement, to help them to feel more connected to and at ease in their bodies, and to help people to experience a state of deep relaxation which can bring about a sense of balance, peace and wellbeing. This desire led me to massage.

I began training with the NHS Natural Health School (the only NHS run complementary therapy school in the country) in 2019 and studied with them for 2 years, graduating with distinctions in both Therapeutic Massage and Reflexology. This included the study of anatomy and physiology. I learned a great deal on these courses, but I felt frustrated by the strain massaging on a table placed on my hands and my body. This led me to search for techniques that were better suited to me, and I found what I was looking for in AYM- and as soon as I found these incredible ways to work that are much more comfortable for me the treatments began to feel more effective for the clients too.

I fully intend to dedicate my life to helping people feel well through AYM.

What our clients say

I had never had this type of massage before so did not know what to expect, but Jacqueline explained everything thoroughly before we started. Her calm approach helped me feel comfortable and relaxed. The treatment was fantastic, like nothing I’ve ever had before. I felt more connected to my body and achieved a deep sense of relaxation. The whole experience felt soothing and nurturing, and by the end of the treatment I felt a deeper connection to my body and senses. For anyone looking to improve their health and well-being, I would encourage you to try this treatment and therapist

Jacqueline is a very professional and attentive therapist. Today I received the Ayurvedic yoga massage from Jacqueline. This is the first time I’ve ever had this treatment. I was struggling with tension in my upper back muscles and lower back pain. Jacqueline gave the perfect pressure and showed great attention to detail in making sure the environment felt relaxing using relaxing aromas in the back ground etc. Jacqueline also used stretches on some of these stretches I instantly felt relief in my problematic areas. After the treatment Jacqueline gave great aftercare and my shoulder blades already felt so much looser and more open than they did before. I would highly recommend this treatment and Jacqueline, it is very relaxing and Jacqueline has a great caring and holistic nature.

Testimonial Icon


I saw Jacqueline for an Ayurvedic massage treatment and it was complete bliss, time stood still. She’s clearly a highly skilled and knowledgeable therapist who had keen insight into the sources of any aches and pains I’ve been dealing with and knew just which areas of the body needed work. Her warm friendly nature made her really easy to talk to while also making me feel assured that I was in the hands of a professional. From the beginning she took the time to make sure I felt comfortable and to understand me and my needs. She really listens and provides a personalised treatment to fit your concerns. Throughout she was extremely attentive, with time and pressure adapted to suit areas of my body, and created a calm, peacefully quiet atmosphere as I relaxed and meditated on the experience. The room felt lovely and comfortable and the temperature was perfect, as were the herbal powder and oil which also smelt and felt beautiful. Jacqueline’s exceptional knowledge and aftercare advice left me feeling nurtured and looked after. I felt she truly cared about ensuring her clients receive the best possible treatment and I left feeling restored and untroubled, like an actual weight had been lifted as I floated off down the street. I slept well that night too which is amazing as someone who struggles (to put it lightly) with sleep. I don’t think the word massage truly does justice to this treatment, it’s a whole holisitic experience carried out by a highly skilled practitioner which left me feeling totally relaxed and balanced in both body and mind. Would wholeheartedly recommend

I would 100% recommend Jacqueline! Her calm and nurturing nature made me feel instantly as ease when I arrived for my treatment. She was very knowledgeable about Ayurvedic Yoga Massage and helped me to understand what to expect from the treatment beforehand. The relaxed but professional way she went about this and the safe space that she created made me feel completely at ease, as sometimes I personally feel quite vulnerable initially when I try a therapy that is new to me. I got the sense that she has something that can’t be taught – she is intuitive and empathetic in the way that she works. I felt that Jacqueline really listened to me when I spoke to her about my stress levels and the trouble I was having with my back, and she communicated with me throughout the treatment to see which techniques were useful to me and to determine when the stretches were right for me. During the treatment I felt very joyful (- I even started laughing at one point!) and floated home on a cloud afterwards. I felt amazing the following day and in the days that followed I noticed a real easing in my physical symptoms such as the pain and tension in my upper back and shoulders and I also noticed a huge improvement in my mood. Thanks very much Jacqueline, I can’t wait to come back for another treatment soon!

I went to Jacqueline having had massages before however this massage was like none other I’ve ever experienced before. While the massage and the surroundings were very relaxing I didn’t feel drained and out of body afterwards which is how I have felt with other treatments I’ve had in the past. I felt energised and more connected to my body than ever before.
I had discussed my issues with Jacqueline and they listened to my concerns and suggested some moves that we could do to help alleviate the pain in my wrist and the tension in my jaw and shoulders. All of the moves helped me a great deal and I am still feeling the effects of it weeks later. I would definitely recommend Jacqueline for treatments and I have been doing so my friends and family. I will hopefully be back again to have another beautiful experience soon. Jacqueline’s is so intuitive and nurturing she is just the perfect person to have a massage with.

I had a wonderfully relaxing and therapeutic massage with Jacqueline. I completed a health questionnaire and highlighted all of the areas I would like Jacqueline to address and she made sure to mention it in my consultation with her and to address those areas in the massage. She used a wonderful amount of pressure but was gentle in her movements and transitions. I felt safe and able to relax fully with her. I enjoyed the whole treatment and felt deeply nurtured throughout. I felt the benefits of the massage the following day when I noticed my muscles and joints felt more flexible and mobile. I realised how beneficial regular AYM massages are – especially with such a knowledgeable and empathetic therapist. I would recommend Jacqueline to anyone wanting to find a therapist who can provide a relaxing and therapeutic environment and treatment

Testimonial Icon


I’ve been for massages before but this felt so thorough- physically, spiritually and mentally. Jacqueline is so caring in her approach to massage and I felt so comforted and nourished throughout and after the session. She used pressure point holds which really helped me with specific pains in my forearms, neck, back and shoulders. Jacqueline is so knowledgeable on Ayurvedic Yoga Massage and the body and I enjoyed hearing about specific nuggets of this. I’m under a lot of stress as I have an intense job and this experience was just so wonderful. I would 100% recommend Jacqueline as an Ayurvedic yoga masseuse and I’m eager to book another session with her soon.

I had my first Ayurvedic massage with Jacqueline and was deeply moved by the experience. The massage had a proud effect on me and took me by surprise! Jacqueline’s care absolutely shines through. I can’t tell you how great the treatment was and how it gave me the strength to deal with something I needed to address.

I was put at ease from the minute I arrived and Jacqueline explained clearly what would happen. The massage was pitched perfectly with just the right amount of varying pressure where it was needed. The physicality of the treatment was powerful and pitched just right. I felt both relaxed and grounded when we finished and a complete connection with Jacqueline. The emotional response was unexpected although we’d talked about this at the start I hadn’t really expected it to affect me. The method is spectacular and I’ve never had such a moving experience. A big thank you Jacqueline.

Testimonial Icon


My first massage with Jacqueline was a truly wonderful experience. She consulted me beforehand to see what I wanted from the experience and made every effort before the massage to make sure I was comfortable. I was very quickly put into a state of deep relaxation and by the end of the session I had transcended into an out of body experience. It was only when she spoke to tell me the session was over that I returned to the room and I felt utterly relaxed and at peace with my body. I will certainly be returning for another one very soon!

Testimonial Icon


Jacqueline is a very gifted massage therapist, she has such a caring energy, I instantly felt welcomed and at ease. She tailored the experience to make sure it would serve me best. I felt nurtured and it helped me to connect more with my body (both physically and emotionally). I felt rejuvenated afterwards and still very relaxed…. I floated all the way home feeling a great sense of contentment

Testimonial Icon


I have had many massages in my life, but never have I experienced anything as wonderful as Ayurvedic Yoga Massage. And Jacqueline is truly wonderful. She was very caring, listened to my needs and very thorough. You can tell she really loves what she does, and she wants you to have the best experience too.

​​I absolutely adored my yoga massage with Jacqueline. I’m rather crooked-boned and inflexible so, whilst I was very keen to try all the stretches, she made me feel incredibly at ease to communicate with her which movements were my favourites. As someone who’s a little body conscious, I also felt wonderfully comfortable. I was on cloud nine for the rest of the week and cannot wait to return!

Testimonial Icon


I’m a regular at having massages, but new to the Ayurvedic yoga massage world. Since receiving a full body Ayurvedic yoga massage from Jacqueline my perception of how my body and mind can feel after a massage has changed. Not only does Jacqueline’s caring and soft nature help towards the healing sensation afterwards, the techniques used during the session feel curative like in physical therapy. My muscles feel restored to their natural placement and my mind feels at peace. I’m now wanting to receive a Ayurvedic yoga massage from Jacqueline regularly to balance out any of my muscle fatigue from exercising, as well as the negative effects from working at a desk and bad postural habits. I would highly recommend trying this unique, remedial and harmonious massage from Jacqueline.

Jacqueline is a miracle worker. Possibly the best massage of my life (and I’ve had A LOT of massagers). Amazing results for my bad back and a truly beautiful experience.

Such an incredible experience! Jacqueline worked on my neck and shoulders mainly for nearly 2 hours even though I’d only booked for 1 hour! Jacqueline is such an amazing therapist, she’s so intuitive and nurturing. Highly recommend!!!

I was having lower back/hip problems, and was in a lot of pain at the time, this was causing me to limp. I was made to feel welcome when I arrived. The treatment was tailored to my needs and carried out in a tentative and professional way. After the massage I was in a lot less pain and the following day I only felt a twinge in my back, with no pain in my hip and I could move freely again. Excellent massage, would definitely recommend.

Jacqueline was so kind and attentive. Took her time with the session and I felt that she genuinely cares. She tackled my problem areas in specific and had an overall warm and welcome aura. I highly recommend her for a beautiful, healing massage!

3 hours of pure bliss with Jacqueline. Wonderful, definitely booking again.

I had a 120 minute AYM massage with Jacqueline. Highly recommend not just her as a therapist but allowing her to work her magic over that extended time frame. She ensured I was comfortable at every stage and I felt truly held, cared for and nurtured. I experienced some new stretches I didn’t realise my body needed and my body felt  better than it has in years.

This was  the first AYM I have had and I really loved it. Jacqueline made me feel really relaxed and comfortable and I felt extremely relaxed afterwards. I really enjoyed the feeling gained from the feet and elbow massage and the traction and yoga stretches, in fact my back and legs feel especially good! I’ll definitely return again for another soon.

I had such a lovely nurturing experience being massaged by Jacqueline. It was my first AYM so I didn’t know what to expect. The time flew by and I had some deep emotional release that was holding me back without me knowing. The emotional release helped my energy to unblock and allowed me to move forward in my life. Also my stiff right hip has loosen a lot. And it was only a 30min session. Can’t wait for a full session. Thank you Jacqueline.

Testimonial Icon


Wow, what an experience. Jacqueline is very professional in what she does, made at ease from the start, very caring throughout the massage, my body feels fully rejuvenated and relaxed, relieved a lot of tension in my muscles that I’ve struggled with for years. It’s given me a new lease of life and will definitely go back for more treatment.

The massage I received from Jacqueline was extremely relaxing and nurturing. She is very professional and tailors the massage perfectly. I feel revived, refreshed and lighter afterwards. I have had 2 massages so far and some long standing conditions are already showing signs of easing so I will definitely be returning for more treatments.

As soon as we walked through the door we knew we were in safe hands with Jaqueline. She always attentive and caring and ensured we felt at ease. She focused on what I was wanting from the session pand didn’t disappoint! Hands down the best massage I have had and didn’t have much experience with AYM massage before but it truly was a wonderful experience. Will be booking again. Thank you.

My 1st AYM with Jacqueline definitely won’t be the last. I’m from a sporting background and have had quite a few physio type massages working on niggles and injuries Iv picked up.
This type of massage has blown me away. Far better than I could of imagined. Jacqueline worked on all the areas specific to my needs. She was so knowledgeable on anatomy and physiology and explained the whole process as we went along.
The body feels great but feel like I’m walking around with a glow as well. I would highly recommend 🙏

Testimonial Icon


Absolutely excellent! I’ve been having neck, back and shoulder problems for a few years. Had many massages. Jacqueline’s are by far the best massage experience I have had. And to top her talent, you can tell she cares and wants to use her talent to help people. Can’t recommend enough.

Jaqueline is an absolute miracle worker. Can’t thank her enough for how thorough and talented she is! Easily the best massage I’ve had hands down. Will most diffidently be returning for more 🙂.

The most healing massage ever, I haven’t felt this relaxed since I was in the womb! Jacqueline is an incredibly talented massage therapist and a wonderful human being. The treatment felt so nurturing and I felt like I was safe to completely, deeply relax. I’ll be coming back for more very very soon!

Testimonial Icon


I had my 1st ever massage with Jacqueline last week and I cannot wait to book again with her!

We had a consultation at the beginning of the session where we went through what the massage will entail and Jacqueline wanted to understand how I was feeling both mentally and physically. She learnt the areas in my body where I would prefer a bit more focus and made sure she paid extra attention to those.

She made me feel so comfortable and relaxed through the whole session, I didn’t want it to end!

I’m feeling amazing, I’m so grateful to have found an amazing therapist like Jaqueline. Thank you for the spectacular experience.

Testimonial Icon


I had never come across Ayurvedic Yoga before and was a bit unsure of what I was going in to but the reviews had me hopeful. Can definitely say I’m completely in sync with what everyone has been raving about! My massage with Jacqueline was spectacular! She makes it much more than just a run of the mill experience. She listens patiently to your needs and tailors the entire massage to your body. Certainly helps that she is a wonderful and considerate person herself and her practise shows that. It was without a doubt one of my best massages I’ve ever had and I’m comparing them to the likes of very expensive specialist massages. I felt completely relaxed after the two hour treatment but regretted not booking for longer. Didn’t want it to stop!! The second day was spent on a cloud of massage after effects. A happy warm feeling. And by day three I just wanted to go back again! Absolutely fantastic work and would highly recommend with my eyes closed. Both the massage and especially Jacqueline as a therapist. Thank you Jacqueline!

Testimonial Icon


Hands down the best massage I have ever had! I have always struggled with tension in my neck / traps and felt with other massages they often overlook the neck and don’t spent as long on problem areas. However Jacqueline spent a good while on the problem area, using deep work and pressure points. I felt like all my knots had melted away after. Jacqueline is also very attentive and caring for your needs during the whole process, making you feel comfortable and relaxed as possible – loved all the lovely personal touches! I will definitely be returning for another massage soon! AYM truly works wonders.

What Jacqueline offers is way beyond what you would expect from massage if your experience is mainly from spa treatments, like mine was. She provides a truly holistic experience and besides clearly having an innate talent, is incredibly knowledgeable and skilled in her work. She creates a warm, safe space for you to relax in and practices with the utmost professionalism. The respect and care she treated my body with moved me to tears and left me feeling amazing and so well rested for days afterwards.
There is so much to be gained from a massage with Jacqueline, whether you have a specific issue, chronic management or just want to treat yourself. You won’t regret it, if fact I think you will be blown away.

Jacqueline (Ayurvedic Yoga Massage) sincerely gives the most incredible massages I’ve ever experienced. I suffered for a long time with inability to trust someone I didn’t know too well touching my body, or feel fully comfortable with that- but she creates such a safe and nurturing space. I always feel really held by her. Also the relaxation her touch gives the body is not possible to put into words!! She always checks in about pressure and can give great deep massage to unlock knots or go into gentle touch. I always leave feeling really pampered. She has really healing energy and healing hands and always ensures I feel contained in the space. Thanks Jacqueline!
Testimonial Icon


Wow and Aaahhh! So soothing.
What a wonderful experience Jacqueline gave me with her lovely deep and relaxing massage. I truly enjoyed it. She took her time to talk to me before the massage and really made me comfortable. I loved the pressure of the massage. I felt so relaxed. I thoroughly loved the experience. I highly highly recommended her style of massage. I hope to go back regularly. Thank you so so much Jacqueline 💗

I am so pleased to have found Jacqueline! I booked a package as a Mother’s Day gift for my mum. It was really easy to communicate via email and Jacqueline answered all my questions and provided a range of different packages to accommodate what I was after. After the first session my mum called (sounding very relaxed and slightly out-of it) to say she was so happy with the whole experience. She said Jacqueline was warm and had an incredible healing energy. The therapeutic space was well equipped, clean and had everything needed to create a calming space. The treatment reflected Jacquline’s knowledge of Ayurveda which left mum feeling lighter, relaxed and motivated to focus on her well being. Thanks so much for looking after her <3

I recently had an Ayurvedic yoga massage with Jacqueline and it was a truly amazing experience. Jacqueline made me feel comfortable and cared for from the offset. In advance I filled out a questionnaire that helped Jacqueline tailor the massage to my needs and it did not disappoint. I was lucky enough to have a 3 hours session with extra care and consideration taken with my knees and feet as requested. Jacqueline sets up a very comfortable space with beautiful scents and sounds to help me feel even more relaxed. The 3 hours passed so quickly, I don’t think I’ll ever be satisfied with a 1 hour massage ever again. 10/10 would recommend! Thank you Jacqueline

Testimonial Icon


I’d highly recommend Jacqueline as a massage therapist. I wanted to receive a treatment that was deep, relaxing, nourishing, and unrushed, and that is exactly what I got. Not only is she highly skilled and intuitive, but Jacqueline really helped me to feel safe, and created such a loving, warm yet calm atmosphere, that I was able to forget myself and just sink really deeply into receiving and enjoying the treatment. It was a beautiful experience and my body felt great afterwards!

Jacqueline is wonderful, from the first time you meet she makes you feel at ease and listens to anything that is niggling you and that you want to work on. My first massage was a present but I have been back since as I cannot beat the feeling. Thank you I will be back soon x

What a delight to receive such an attentive well thought out full body yoga massage from Jacqueline – An intuitive, kind, calm and reassuringly knowledgeable practitioner who seemed to know exactly what my body and my nervous system needed in that moment. Jacqueline was really welcoming and friendly as she enquired and listened thoughtfully to my day-to-day woes. She offered some sound advice towards my struggles as well as explaining how the massage may go. And what a massage it was – I could have and would have laid there for days I was so relaxed! AND my shoulders?! My shoulders that had been hunched up to my ears for weeks are now peacefully resting somewhere down near my hips 😊. A beautiful 2 hours of restful bliss that sent me floating home and left a spring in my step now 5 days later. Well worth the 6 hour ‘Megabus’ round trip. I’m so excited for our next appointment, thank you so much for your time and expertise Jacqueline. With love and gratitude Jodie 🙏🏼xx
