Helping
older adults
manage pain & mobility with massage therapy


I believe that our bodies carry our physical, mental, and emotional scars within their structure. Sometimes we hold on to issues that eventually manifest as aches, pains, stress, anxiety and sleep issues, causing us to feel down.

I have come to realise that quite often people will dismiss their aches and pains as a sign of getting older and they just have to put up with it.
NOT TRUE.

Which is how Compassionate Touch came to be, so that I could debunk that myth and offer massage therapy for older adults.

Visiting you in your own home including care homes or in my private treatment room at my home in the New Forest.

I am trained to treat a range of pain conditions including low back pain, neck pain, headaches, whiplash, hip and knee pain, Fibromyalgia and many other ongoing injury or pain conditions.

I use a warm and heart centred approach that takes full account of all your physical and emotional needs when planning your bespoke treatment and am committed to working with you to get the results you need.

Accessibility is important, my domestic therapy room in the village of Bartley, is on the ground floor with plenty of off road parking.

Home visits may be possible with prior arrangement.

I offer appointments most days so that appointments fit round your busy schedule.

Covid 19 update
I have decided to leave the use of masks to patients and therapist.


Please let me know if you would prefer me to wear a mask during your treatment.


If you have booked an appointment and then feel unwell or showing symptoms of infection, please contact me to rearrange your appointment.


Many thanks for all your support and cooperation.
