“My treatments are individual and focus on what you need at that time. Each session will begin with a consultation and postural assessment, taking into consideration your physical and emotional state. I will then use a combination of the different massage techniques I have learnt, alongside listening to your body, and working intuitively, to offer the best treatment for you at that moment in your life.”

“Ruth sensitively uses exceptional skill and extensive practical knowledge , resulting in therapeutic effects which support  me greatly  in living with a  muscular -skeletal condition . More than massage!” 


Ruth practices at the Blackdown Healthy Living Centre, Hemyock and the Culm Valley Centre for Integrated Health, Cullompton.
