She has spent time living and working in Asia, learning different skills in the ancient Asian art of healing.

After time spent working in the French Alps she has gained experience with treating winter sports related injuries. She has also completed courses in Thai yoga massage, shiatsu, qi gong tui na and facial rejuvenation massage and acupuncture. Massages are therapeutic and relaxing and use aromatherapy oils or are given through loose clothing. They can be received on a treatment table or on a soft mattress on the floor.
Naomi has a special interest in women's health and has completed training in IVF, pregnancy, birth preparation, induction and antenatal support and recovery. She encourages women to have a short course of treatments on the lead up to birth to help reduce labour time and reduce the need for medical intervention. She also offers support in post-natal recovery which can be given from the comfort of your own home. There is also an option of couples and friends to be treated together. She creates a welcoming friendly space where the couple feel nurtured and supported.
