Why are Organic Herbal Oils so central to my healing formula?


  • Using herbal oils elevates my treatments from a bodywork session to a

deeply nourishing ritual for the mind, body & soul.


  • They smell DIVINE. Herbs bring an extra sensory layer; offering relaxing, soothing & comforting smells.


  • They bring a vast array of medicinal, healing properties, (such as combating stress & anxiety, deeper pain relief, soothing damaged skin and preventing stretch marks), allowing me to tailor the treatment to your needs that lie beyond aching muscles.


  • The skin is the body's largest organ and is highly absorbent. Moisturising the skin with high quality, organic herbal oils, (as opposed to water based, chemical laden lotions), is deeply nourishing to many of the body's vital systems; including the nervous, lymphatic & immune systems.


  • Because the skin is so absorbent, it is a fast & efficient way to get herbal medicine into the body.

HI, I'M LUCY!



BOTANICA was born out of my combined passion for the therapeutic benefits of healing touch and plant medicine. My style of massage therapy takes a holistic, intuitive approach; working with each client to figure out exactly what each and every BODY is truly in need of. It is grounded in Swedish Massage, and has evolved over the years to incorporate many other traditional massage techniques, including Ayurvedic practices and Tuina & Accupressure (which have their origins in Traditional Chinese medicine).



Most recently I qualified in Pregnancy massage and Touch Therapy, which means that I able able to treat everyone and anyone! I am continuing my CPD, currently studying Baby Massage therapy, How to incorporate Energy Healing & Chakra work in a Holistic Massage and in the near future I hope to do additional training in working with Women's Health (addressing how to support fertility, PMS & menopause). If you are interested in any of these areas, please get in touch and I will add you to a mailing list for updates.




Exciting Update! Studying under renouned Herbalist, Kami McBride, I am currently developing a unique range of Botanically infused oils to bring the potent healing power of plants to you, my clients. This range will not only be used for the treatments that I offer, but will be available to purchase so you can bring a little plant magik to your day to day lives!

Though experience I have to come to develop an intuitive style of massage which allows for the subtleties of working with the body,so whilst treatments follow a rough routine, no massage will ever be the same, instead it will be guided by what you and your body is in need of at the time of your appointment.

Each treatment is tailored especially to you; whether you are looking for deep work on aching muscles, lymphatic drainage and detoxification or blissful relaxation. We begin each session with an informal consultation which gives me the chance to check in and get up to date on any new aches, pains and stresses that your body is holding onto.

I incorporate deep breathing exercises and grounding to help you settle and bring you to a place of calm. The healing herbal oils not only bring their medicinal properties, but transport you to a meditative state, allowing your body to heal at a deeper level.







INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE

Ancient Ayurvedic massage techniques combine for a relaxing yet invigorating treatment with multiple benefits:


  • Improves sleep
  • Promote hair growth
  • Relieve tension in the neck & shoulders
  • Stimulate the third eye & crown chakras
  • Reduce water retention in the face
  • Support lymphatic drainage

IHM is done in a seated position to ensure access to the whole scalp; a range of massage movements are used to stimulate circulation, support lymphatic drainage and release tension from tight muscles. This treatment also focuses on the trapezius muscles (which sit either side of the spine, stretching up the neck and along the shoulders as indicated in the diagram). This makes it an excellent treatment for stress & tension.


Due to the seated position & combination of techniques, traditional IHM is both invigorating and relaxing. For any clients looking for a treatment addressing the same areas but wishing for deep relaxation, I would recommend the 'Mind Your Head' treatment.

Woman Holding Dark Green-Leafed Plant

Touch therapy with Lucy has been truly effective. I had never heard of it before but after she explained how it can help release trauma from the body, it’s exactly what I needed.

The massage itself was wonderful.

I could really feel a weight had been lifted after the treatment. I felt a huge shift and felt so relaxed and lighter.

Massage During Pregnancy
Pregnant Woman in Bed

PREGNANCY MASSAGE

Massage during pregnancy has SO MANY benefts:

IMPROVED FLEXIBILITY

By loosening tight muscles, massage helps to improve overall flexibility. Not only does this feel more comfortable day to day, (especially if mamma-to-be is used to being more active than her pregnancy allows), it also helps to prepare the body for birth.

IMPROVED SLEEP

Fatigue & Insomnia are common complaints during pregnancy, but the good news is that massage can help to increase sleep quality and ensure you're getting the rest you need.

IMPROVED CIRCULATION

Improved circulation for Mama means improved supply of nutrients & oxygen to baby. Massage also supports lymphatic circulation which boosts the immune system and speeds up the removal of toxic waste.

PREPARATION FOR BIRTH & LABOUR

Studies show that regular massage throughout pregnancy reduces labour pain & decreases the amount of time spent in labour. Not only that, but regular pre-natal massage has also been proven to reduce the chance of premature birth & low birth weight.

RELAXATION

Pregnancy can bring with it many anxieties, but it is vital for mama-to-be to keep stress levels to a minimum.

Massage triggers the release of endorphins (hormones which boost the mood & soothe the nervous system) and reduces the levels of cortisol (the stress hormone). This brings harmony back to the body & mind- helping both to function optimally.

REDUCED SWELLING

Swollen legs, feet, ankles & fingers are very common during pregnancy. By supporting healthy lymphatic drainage, massage can really help to reduce the swelling.

TESTIMONIAL

"Fabulous massage. Lucy was so friendly and welcoming she made me feel relaxed and comfortable on arrival. Nothing was to much and the pregnancy massage was amazing. The treatment was so thorough and I left feeling incredible. I highly recommend booking in with Lucy. Thank you again xxx."

PAIN RELIEF

Stiff neck? Aching calves & lower back? Perhaps you've developed prenatal sciatica?

A massage will help to release those tight, aching muscles. In addition to that, the endorphins released during massage act as a natural pain killer.

MOISTURISING

Carefully selected organic oils which work to

keep your skin supple & hydrated & reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

BONDING WITH BABY

Helps Mumma to be in tune with her own body & build the relationship with her unborn child. It also helps baby to feel safe and secure by experience positive, loving touch and while Mumma is at ease.
