“He who has health, has hope; and he who has hope, has everything.”

Thomas Carlyle

Step inside to relax and unwind in luxurious, soothing surroundings where you will receive a professional and bespoke treatment to improve your physical and emotional health. Only the finest products and purest organic essential oils are used. A full consultation is taken before the treatment and aftercare advice is given at the end, so that you receive the optimum treatment.

My massage style incorporates many techniques from Swedish massage, Acupressure, Deep Tissue massage through to Trigger Point Therapy. I have also embraced massage techniques from around the world. My touch is sensitive and intuitive enabling me to locate areas of tension. I have a large repertoire of massage techniques so every bespoke back treatment is tailored to the client’s individual needs.

I am a fully qualified therapist, trained to the highest standards, with a wealth of knowledge and experience from a varied and comprehensive career in the Complimentary health business. I am a member of the accredited, professional body, the Federation of Holistic Therapists.

I have a passion for massage and nothing gives me more satisfaction than improving my client’s wellbeing. I look forward to helping you on your journey to better physical and emotional health.


“Alison is a truly wonderful masseuse, I am so lucky to have found her! As a chiropractor I hugely value massage as a crucial part of maintaining my overall wellbeing, as well as strongly recommending patients to do the same. With Alison you can feel she has years of experience and her ability to use such varied techniques to suit the body is amazing. I love the way she is so in tune with the body’s senses and creates such a calming environment; you can’t help but relax. After my massage I walked away feeling so much better, lighter, and freer. I’ve been excited to refer people to her as I know they’ll feel great afterwards! Her knowledge of the body and advice have been very useful and the gorgeous natural products she uses are a real treat. To find someone who clearly loves what they do and puts their all into it, I can’t be more grateful.”

Zoe, Chiropractor at SHC, Staplehurst

“I have been having regular massage treatments with Alison for several years and in my opinion she is an excellent therapist. Alison takes great care to consider that every aspect of her treatment is tailored to meet her client’s individual needs. Each treatment is a superbly relaxing, multi-sensory experience but she also knows exactly how to work on any problem areas for a therapeutic effect. I would recommend Alison to anyone looking for a sensitive and extremely effective therapist.”

Kate, Staplehurst

“Alison has been treating me with her amazing deep tissue massage, every month for more than 8 years. I drive long distances for work and suffer from tension and back spasms, which Alison alleviates. I am now also benefiting from Indian Head Massage which is extremely relaxing.”

Mandy, Headcorn

“I found Alison after being referred by a friend. I love the setting of her beautiful cottage and always unwind as soon as I step inside, it’s so peaceful and calm. Alison always thoroughly explains whichever treatment option I chose and gives me a full consultation. She takes her time and listens well and always treats me like an individual and addresses any physical issues I have. After a treatment with her ‘healing hands’ I always feel totally relaxed, relieved of aches and pains and ready to face the world feeling renewed. I thoroughly recommend Alison, she is very kind, skilled, sensitive and experienced.”

Andrea, Maidstone

“Having had many relaxing treatments with Alison, I have always been fortunate to leave feeling relaxed and free of knots and aches. Alison is a most natural and holistically caring therapist who keeps up with new techniques and therapies to help her many clients.”

Sharon, Staplehurst

“Alison is very professional and soon puts you at ease. Can honestly say it was the best massage I’ve ever had. She has a really sensitive touch and soon finds all the tension and knots. The massage was deep and full of different techniques to ease out my knots. I really enjoyed the massage as I felt the tension melt away. Couldn’t recommend her enough.”

Karen, Cranbrook
