Gillian Farrelly, ITEC
Princible Therapist

“I have been working as a massage therapist  for the last 6 years. I love the science behind  the art of bodywork. As practitioner, I love  the power of facilitating healing. Being  flexible in my treatments, I’m able to offer  the client what they need. There are many  aspects, which contribute to a person’s stress  levels and physical well-being. Exploring these aspects helps me tailor each treatment to that person’s needs and comfort level. The tailored treatments bring relief from physiological pain and stress, as well as provide emotional support on many levels.”
