“I have been seeing physiotherapists and massage therapists for 20 years and I can honestly say Louise is by far the best. She listens to what you want, she assessing what you need and you get the best massage ever. If the pressure is not right she will adapt it accordingly. I always feel so much better after seeing her and she always gives 110%. You will never go to anyone else.”
“It gives me great pleasure to provide a testimonial for Louise. I have known Louise for many years. To increase her knowledge and develop as a therapist, Louise has completed specialised anatomy and physiology courses, leading to her Advanced Practitioner status. This is an incredible achievement, whilst juggling her young family. What sets Louise apart as a massage therapists is her immense wealth of knowledge regarding anatomy and a deep understanding of the body, muscles and joints. As a regular yoga practitioner, I know that Louise instinctively understands what my body needs to heal itself with the experience of these many different techniques at her finger-tips. As I suffer from lax ligaments, Louise is excellent at stabilising and releasing my tight areas. At each visit, Louise always asks what my body is doing right now, thereby tailoring each massage to specific problems. Louise looks into my postural imbalances, rather than pursuing her own agenda regardless. My monthly massage with Louise offers me all the health benefits I need to continue to be well, both spiritually and mentally.
We have been having massages with Louise since 2013. Chris has a number of physical ailments, including knee replacements, which were causing her a loss of some quality of life. I suffer primarily with sciatica caused by a prolapsed disc, but also the normal aches and pains of ageing. With regular treatment we have seen an improvement in our lifestyle, this is solely down to the dedication and experience of Louise. Louise has recently introduced hot and cold stones which have given us both pure bliss in relaxation. The treatments are as it ‘says on the tin’, leaving us completely relaxed. There’s nothing like Louise’s magic hands that leave you feeling amazing and well chilled.

I booked a 90 minute Hot Stone Massage, which was pure indulgence. Louise took me to her wonderful treatment room at the top of her house that was warm and private. We had a discussion about my needs then she left me to prepare myself for my treatment, the table was warmed with lots of cosy blankets, there was beautiful music playing in the background that immediately allowed me to settle. Hot stones were used to massage, with focus on areas of tension. This was an amazing experience that ended with me holding warm stones in my hands whilst cold stones were massaged on my face. I felt I had had an out of body experience, so totally relaxing. Louise is a lovely gentle calm women and a fantastic masseur with so much experience, you really get a beautiful relaxing treatment that you won’t want it to end.
I have known Louise for over 20 years and am lucky enough to enjoy a massage on an ad hoc bass when visiting London. I have no particular ailments but I love massage too. Louise is both passionate and thorough and completes every massage with love and from the heart. I always feel like a renewed woman after her gentle touch and totally in balance again.
I’ve had a bad lower back since being pregnant with my first daughter in 1998/99 and has got progressively worse over time and with two further pregnancies. I have seen a number of osteopaths and chiropractors, had two MRI scans and various painkillers. I finally found Louise!!! Nothing has come near the treatment that she has offered me. Her treatment room is based just off South Norwood Hill and is a lovely, calm place to relax. On my first treatment, she did a thorough consultation with me and I’ve had several ‘checkups’ to see how I’m getting along. She’s very highly qualified in various types of massage, including therapeutic, Swedish and hot stone, to name but a few. I now go to see her every couple of months for a deep tissue, therapeutic massage or a relaxation massage as a treat. Her hands work wonders and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you so much Louise!
