The team has changed since we started building the team for this year, some happy reasons, some sad, and some definitely bitter sweet. Where one of our 'regulars' is unable to join we welcome someone new. Since 2005 we have set up shop in and amongst the green scapes at Larmer Tree Gardens, and for our 14th year we're bringing together 20 practitioners to ease you into a beautiful weekend.
Cat and Colette, our dream team Reception Crew, will be offering some sessions this year, Facials and Reflexology and with the years of experience between them, you'll definately be in safe hands.
Cat will also be holding sessions for Quiet Contemplation - Mindfulness - Sitting still with a few other people... whatever you want to call it and it'll happen in between set changes on the Garden Stage when it's more conducive to hearing the introduction and instructions of this 'How To' session. Some other practitioners may also be holding group sessions, so look out when you're walking around the Healing Garden over the weekend.
Wellbeing with Catherine

Available Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday mornings
Colette has been a massage therapist and reflexologist since 2003 and with the End of the Road team since 2007. Expert in many different modalities, studied in England, Thailand and India, with an approach for tailor made treatments, looking at postural, muscular and environmental stresses and imbalances, compassionate and holistic so as to address effectively the root cause of possible tension and chronic pain in the body. She would be delighted to offer you a bespoke treatment that will deeply relax you and help you reconnect with yourself.
And if you just need somewhere away from the hustle and bustle you are more than welcome to come and just sit and chat or wonder around the garden over the weekend.
Oh it's a game changer alright and I can still remember the first peanut butter and chocolate Shepherds Ice Cream combo I had a few years back now. That and the 2pm Friday Pie and Pint, the gauge that all is well with the team, all set up and everyone happy and prepared for a glorious weekend.
it takes a gargantuan amount of coordination from everyone involved, from the drive on humble tea rigs to the main stage set ups and we, the Healing Garden Crew, are looking forward to our 14th Year in the gardens

Deep Tissue Massage Chair Massage Reiki
With DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE I work intuitively to find knots, tight muscles and problem area, I then use firm pressure to relieve chronic muscle tension, but usually finish with head and feet, which leaves you feeling very relaxed. Improves flexibility, suppleness and circulation & helps the body heal itself. Great for achy or tight muscles.
ACUPRESSURE CHAIR MASSAGE is done in a specially designed chair, which totally supports your body, and uses a combination of classical massage techniques, stretching and use of acupressure points. It is done fully clothed without the use of oils.
I combine REIKI & VORTEX HEALING which are both form of energy healing, using hands, both on and above the body. They help to balance and recharge the body’s energy system, often clearing energy blockages along the way, leaving the body feeling energised and alive.

Client review ‘Jess is amazing at what she does. I’ve had chronic pain in my back for 6 years and after only one deep tissue massage session she was able to release spasms and knots that I’d given up on long ago. Jess hears you out before she begins to better focus on those areas. I am usually very tense and tend to have racing thoughts but her massage put me in a sort of trance. Complete relaxation. Haven’t felt this good in so long. Thank you! ‘

This form of massage for me is about addressing re occurring injuries, aches and pains and emotionally relaxing the body as well as physically. By helping people understand how much emotion effects muscle real improvements can be made to well being
Using essential oils chosen by the client and blended to each individual needs, this massage is on the whole not as deep and concentrates more on the absorption of the magical oils and relaxation.
A treat for all feet. This treatment never ceases to amaze me. Using the map of the body on the feet and little finger movements toxins that can build up in problem areas are released and massaged away. Best description of how you feel after this treatment. Like your walking on Marshmallows x
