About Rose

I was first touched by the power of Holistic Therapy in 1984 at a very testing time in my life, I experienced the benefits of both reflexology and shiatsu at a yoga event, from that time on I knew it was something I wanted to do! A personal discovery and development- my journey to wholeness began – leading to a fulfilling vocational career.

I continue to attend courses and workshops that will enhance my knowledge and therefore the treatments you receive.

I also teach workshops as an introduction to therapies and organise retreats.



I trained in Reflexology at Newcastle University in 1990 and practiced for three years before obtaining a Teaching Certificate, City and Guilds 7307. During this time I studied and practiced aromatherapy and body massage.

In 1994 I began a three year training course in Shiatsu with Newcastle Shiatsu College and three years of personal development helping me to gain a full understanding of the connection between body and mind.

I have qualified in a range of therapies, including Reiki and Crystal Therapy, and apply them in the most beneficial way to meet a client’s needs.

Client Feedback:


“Shine Bright Like A Diamond” – are the words of one  of Rhianna’s greatest hits, and that’s the spirit that Rose brings into  everything that she does, including her fantastic holistic treatments and  yoga classes. To be truly happy you need to be in balance with a healthy body and mind, and so many of us find just that with Rose’s yoga classes.

Serenity, meditation, peace of mind, me time,  recharge your batteries, exercise – people come for so many  different reasons. It’s a gentle way to exercise mind and body,  as well as a great way to tone up and strengthen your core.

There’s also lots of laughter in Rose’s classes – they are truly happy spaces. And as Rose will always say, there’s always an  exercise you can do in your daily life. Whether it’s at home, or driving, or  standing in the queue at the supermarket!

The emphasis is on enjoying the journey, the whole  experience. It’s non competitive, and fosters new friendships also. And Rose now  leads yoga trips as far afield as Italy, as well as retreats closer to home.

As a relative novice to yoga, which I started just  a few years ago with Rose, I can truly say that it’s brought a real peace into  my life. And is also something I look forward to in a busy world of work, to  keep me grounded and happy, – with the additional benefits of hopefully toning  up and staying fit too!  Rose is a totally caring person, and it’s no  surprise that her holistic treatments, including shiatsu, reflexology, and  massage are such a hit too.

So if you’ve never tried any of the treatments, or wondered what’s so special about yoga, and all those people in the papers you  see, looking fit, and carrying their yoga mats about, why not give it a  try?!. If I can do it, anyone can. And I’m so glad that I finally discovered the joys of yoga.
