Eileen Egerton
Co-founder & Massage Therapist

My interest in massage therapy began during a fascinating and life-changing year spent living in Thailand at the age of 18. Seeing it as an integral part of family life within the Thai culture I developed a love of body work which has led me to study a diverse range of modalities. These include Chinese therapeutic massage, aromatherapy and reiki; with the focus of my work being relaxation and stress management.

The last twelve years have seen me establishing massage programs within hospitals, nursing homes and corporate work environments, working in the spa on a cruise ship, as well as running my own private practice.

 

Ally Marsh

Ally Marsh (BSc), Ally developed the range of Nature’s Formula Pure body care. These Products are used during the massage sessions and can be purchased at the massage retreats, or at our on-line shop.

As part of my nutrition, massage & naturopathy background in addition to knowledge that has been passed on to me from my grandmother and mother who have been preparing their own concoctions for years, I have created my own therapeutic handmade natural body care products line. These products aim to provide people with the highest quality of natural botanical solutions for the whole body, with each ingredient being carefully chosen for a specific therapeutic purpose. I hope you’ll benefit by experiencing the remarkable effects of using our natural products”.

Lisa Millo
Dip. Remedial Massage & Dip. Reflexology

I have been practicing massage and reflexology since 2005.

My aim is to give the client what they need at the time, whether it’s a gentle touch or a deep dig-in.

I practice remedial and relaxation massage, in which I use Myofascial techniques (MFR), Trigger Point and Muscle Energy (MET) as well as advanced relaxation techniques, such as hot stone massage and lymphatic drainage.

In Reflexology, gentle pressure on well mapped points in the feet are used as focal points through which tension and congestion in corresponding systems and organs in the body can be treated.

I am very experienced in using reflexology as complementary treatment for many conditions, from serious chronic illnesses to stress, from cancer to pregnancy care.

An attentive, empathetic ear is always a part of the experience.

I have been volunteering at Peter Mac for over 5 years, and find it uplifting and rewarding for both parties. It also teaches me about providing effective, gentle treatment to fragile people.

Lisa is available at our Sandringham retreat and offers: Relaxation, Remedial, Sports massage, Pre and post natal massage, Reflexology, Hot stone massage, and Manual Lymphatic drainage massage.
