Treatments are in Oakley, Bedfordshire.
Due to the COVID-19 situation and guidelines, all treatments need to be booked and paid for online in advance.
When a lockdown is in place, and for those who would like to experience some massage but are shielding or unable to come along for a treatment, I am still offering you video calls for guided self or partner massage.

Reiki / mini meditation / deep relaxation
£85 for 2 hours
Reiki re-balances the body's natural energy.
My hands are placed gently on, or near to, the body , and all that is required of you is to lay relaxing on the massage couch under a cosy blanket throughout! As Reiki is non-invasive, it is suitable for almost everyone, including new mothers and newborn babies (so your baby can be with you if required)
Especially helpful through the postnatal weeks and months (or any time!), to help re-balance and restore your personal energy, whilst reducing anxiety and stress and easing aches, pains and other unwanted symptoms.
Babies can also greatly benefit from Reiki, especially if they are colicky or unsettled, or had a traumatic birth, and they can be held and have a treatment alongside you for a deeply bonding experience.
£45 for 60 minutes
healing from birth package
This package is for mothers who gave birth in any way and at any time in the past....from 4 months to 40 years. What happens during (and perhaps after) the birth of our children matters, and if you experienced trauma during that time - however small - it can affect your life for years. If we don't deal with it, it stays with us.
This supportive package is my unique bringing together of several specialist therapeutic modalities to help free you from the niggles and sad feelings you may have, allowing you to heal and finally feel more positive around your peri-natal experience. Many programs just deal with the mental aspects of birth trauma. This healing takes place on a physical, emotional and energetic level. Including specialist sessions:
3-Step Rewind (gentle hypnosis process)
Massage (inc. Closing The Bones techniques for healing)
Reiki (rebalancing your energy and healing from within)
Yoga (especially for self care and compassion as a mother)
Womb Healing Meditation
Quantum Flow to embody the positive changes and healing
Complimentary essential oil, massage ball and eye pillow
Individually, all the above is worth over £475.
Together as the Birth Healing Package, it's only £395
"Pip's Postnatal Nurture Treatment with Thai Yoga Massage - it was brilliant!! I felt so relaxed afterwards, and all the aches and pains I seem to have developed since becoming a mummy felt so much better! I much preferred the interactivity of this treatment compared to a passive, oily massage. I will definitely be going back for more and would highly recommend this treatment to anyone else who is feeling the need for a good whole body re-set!" - Sarah
"Thank you to Pippa, for a shoulder, neck, head and face massage that was so relaxing after suffering from stiff, achy muscles from breast feeding my baby son. Pippa offered to watch me feed and helped adjust my positioning too which was fantastically helpful. I would definitely recommend the massage to any mummy's that are feeling the physical strain of breast feeding or any other activity that leaves you feeling tight and achy." - Sian
Pippa's treatments are incredible!
I have had both the Indian Head Massage and Closing The Bones ceremony, and both were highly therapeutic, beneficial and excellent value for money. - Natalie
"I first had a Reiki treatment when I was really stressed at 8 months pregnant. I found it remarkably relaxing and calming, and felt a soothing warmth in my body. The second treatment was with my 4 month old son. He wouldn't settle for me to have the treatment on my own so we had the treatment together, with him lying on my chest as I cuddled him. He resisted for a few minutes and then fell fast asleep. It was lovely, so relaxing. I felt wonderful warmth...a lovely bonding feeling with my son...felt totally relaxed and refreshed after" - Lisa
