What our clients say

  • “Margie has a way of knowing how to relieve my stress and exhaustion.  When I get a Margie massage, I not only feel relaxed in the moment but continue to feel the benefits for many days.  She uses hot stones, reflexology and beautiful oils during the massage to make me feel amazing.”

  • “I can still remember how wonderful I felt after my first reflexology with Margie.  It was during my cancer journey and I immediately felt the gentle and nurturing benefits of reflexology.  Margie is a true professional and extremely caring – I continue to enjoy many benefits of reflexology which is why it remains a key part of my wellbeing regime many years on.”
