My Story

I am an independent fully insured massage therapist, registered with the Federation of Holistic Therapists and working in Brighton and Hove. I became interested in massage during a particularly stressful period at work and in my personal life. I found it amazing the effect that massage had on my body and mind, de-stressing and re-energising me. I want to share this experience with others. After training in Swedish massage therapy in 2010, I then went on to explore other massage therapies including stone therapy and indian head massage. I’ve listed all my qualifications below. I love what I do and try to adapt my techniques to suit each individual rather than working to set routines.

My Story

I am an independent fully insured beauty and massage therapist, registered with The Guild of Beauty Therapists. I’ve spent all my life being in salons and love healing people from the outside in. After working for a busy salon in Brighton for many years, I  recently became self employed and decided to join forces with Ruth to offer beauty therapies to compliment her massage and also offer Swedish massage- a technique I absolutely love.  I’m qualified up to level 3 and I’ve listed all my qualifications below. I pride myself on attention to detail and a positive outlook on life.

Sanitizing Spray Bottles




Working together to create a safe salon environment

What you can expect from us and what we expect from you

Both Marta and I are well and keen to get back to work. We have a robust plan in place for reopening the salon to ensure we keep ourselves and clients safe and feel confident that this approach will be sustainable and help keep the salon a safe place to be. We will be updating this to reflect any changes in government guidelines and displaying our standards in the salon as well as online.


Marta and I will be staggering our working hours and appointment times for clients to ensure  minimum overlap and prevent clients coming into contact with one another


We normally use clean couch covers for each client and wash our hands before and after each client and will continue to do so


We will be taking bookings by appointment only and ask clients to come alone where possible.


We will be covering pillows with wipe clean plastic pillow cases  and we have removed cotton couch head rest coverings so the couch head rest can be easily cleaned.


We will be ventilating the treatment room between clients. We have an air purifier with built in UV light santiser to help reduce airborn viruses and bacteria.


We will be allowing 15minutes between clients to sanitise surfaces and door handles and reduce client to client contact


We ask clients who have been presenting symptoms or been in contact with anyone presenting symptoms to postpone appointments for a minimum 2 weeks


We are closing the client waiting area and asking clients to wait outside the shop ( weather permitting). We ask clients to arrive on time, and no more than 5 minutes early


We have a hand sanitising station at the door of the salon, and ask all clients to sanitise their hands on entering the salon.


We ask clients to bring their own water.


Marta and I will be wearing masks (always) and gloves (where possible)


We ask all clients to complete an online medical form before their appointment and to comply with our covid19 policy.


We will be replacing open bins for bins with covered lids


Clients are asked to bring and wear face masks for treatments.


We ask clients who start presenting symptoms after a treatment at Rest to contact us immediately so we can take the necessary measures to keep everyone safe.
