Hi everyone, I'm Vicky, I'm a massage therapist, reflexologist and complementary health practitioner
I trained at the well-respected Scottish Massage School in Edinburgh where I obtained a diploma in Swedish massage. In 2022, I achieved a diploma in Clinical Reflexology accredited by Napier University.
I also have post-graduate training in:
Oncology massage (massage for people living with cancer)
Indian head massage
Hot stone massage
Warm bamboo massage
Eastern face & body massage
Advanced & deep tissue techniques
Pregnancy & post-natal massage
My high level of training has enabled me to join the professional body for massage therapists in Scotland, the Scottish Massage Therapists Organisation and the professional body for UK reflexologists the Association of Reflexologists. I'm also a member of the voluntary government regulator for complementary healthcare in the UK, the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) which is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for both massage therapy and reflexology.
As complementary therapy is not regulated in the UK, the CNHC accredited register was set up by the UK government to improve standards and safety for the benefit of the public. Only complementary therapists with the highest level of training are able to join the CNHC register and I would encourage anyone looking for a complementary therapist to use this register. As a member of this body, I ensure that I uphold high standards of practice in my work to build trust with clients and health providers.
I hold a current certificate in Emergency First Aid and I'm a member of the PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups) scheme managed by Disclosure Scotland for both adults and children.
Massage and reflexology are wonderful complementary therapies with an array of benefits for the body, mind and spirit. I believe that they should be available to everyone regardless of age, mobility or health status. The benefits of physical and mental relaxation is invaluable, especially to those restricted by poorer health.
I would love to hear from you to see how I can help. Please take a look at my treatments page and the benefits of massage. I have answered common questions here however if you would like to know anything else, please get in touch.
I look forward to meeting you!
