Stress affects everyone differently; it is a common trigger for headaches as neck tension and muscular stress can be caused by awkward sitting positions or driving positions; even headsets and mobile phone use can cause the muscles of the back and neck to over stretch or shorten.
Massage has been known to alleviate muscle tension and mental stress by relaxing mind and body. Massage helps to mobilise stiff joints, improve the flow of blood, reduce muscular tension and chronic pain, reduce swelling & inflammation and reduce tension and stress.
We want to provide relief to the aches and pains of the body and relax the mind, so, that mind and body can rejuvenate and begin to heal itself. We look at the body holistically ie the whole body and not just the area of discomfort.
Massage and how it works
Soothicity uses a holistic approach with a combination of various manual massage techniques for the management of pain from chronic illness, helping to prevent muscle issues reoccurring or just soothing away aches & pains, enhancing health and encouraging healing from within.
Soothicity Massage therapy include a number of methods, such as Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, McLoughlin Scar Tissue Therapy (MSTR) and Hydrotherm Massage.

Although you will be required to partially undress. This is a strictly professional therapeutic massage.
I am an ITEC Qualified Holistic Massage Therapist since 2002. I originally trained at the International Academy of Health and Skincare in Capetown, South Africa. I then went on to practice my skills with various high-end luxury cruise lines, Spas and Gyms before settling down in Dover, UK
I am continually adding to my knowledge and specialist skillset by undertaking courses for professional development such as Specialist Training for Cancer Massage, Mcloughlin Scar Tissue Release and Pregnancy Massage and learning about innovations in the industry such as the Face Up Hydrotherm Massage so that I can provide the very best service to my clients and help soothe away aches & pains.
Soothicity Massages are a combination of various techniques which are adapted and tailored for each individual according to their needs. My clientele have massages as a way of maintaining health and well-being. We address pain management as a long term maintenance plan rather than a one off quick fix which isn't possible especially for chronic illness such as Fibromyalgia, CFS, Migraines, Plantar Fasciitis, Lower Back Pain or Neck and Shoulder Pain.
We use products that are natural with no chemicals or additives and we try where possible to use environmentally friendly options.
I will travel to Dover, Deal and Folkestone with no additional travel charge . We also have a Therapy Room in Dover.
