Our massage therapist
Catherine Phillipson, aromatherapy, reflexology and massage
In my teens, I got into aromatherapy and started making batches of natural soaps, creams, bath bombs and incense. I turned my bathroom into spa for friends and sold my preparations at Tynemouth market. My curiosity also led me to a yoga class in the local sports centre, which eventually, kicked of my travels to retreats around the world including Turkey and Big Sur, California. Later, it was Asia and India, exploring massage and yoga and sourcing ingredients for my cosmetics.
Returning home after some 10 years of wanderlust, I qualified as a Complimentary Therapist and worked in spas, health clinics and retreats before returning to India to qualify in Yoga Teacher Training at the Himalayan Yoga Institute. Seasonally, I make a range of vegetarian and vegan handmade soaps, massage bars, natural perfumes, oils and incense. Look out for my basket!! I also like wild swimming, nature, making things and dancing.
UPDATE - November 9: Catherine has now been cleared to keep working, although, to be compliant with current regulations, massages must be for the purpose of pain relief. Book an appointment
