Had a very relaxing Reiki treatment from Douglas. Felt so much calmer after the session. Highly recommend Douglas as a therapist and will certainly be making another appointment to go back for another treatment.

Douglas is EXCELLENT. He has a relaxed and kind manner which made me feel relaxed as soon as i met him. He was thorough and genuine in his approach…and the massage/holistic healing was incredible. As much as i enjoyed it at the time, it was a day later when i truly felt the benefits from him releasing my stresses and tensions, allowing me to feel totally renewed. I would not hesitate in recommending Douglas to anyone, and have done so already!

I had an excellent experience at the hands of Douglas. On arrival I was immediately put at ease, offered a herbal tea and a chat about what I wanted to gain from the treatment - once on the table the techniques speak for themselves and prove how throughly knowledgable he in his field. The heated towels, choice of oils and aromatherapy options really enhanced the experience.

I've worked with Douglas for many years. He has a very gentle and reassuring presence and wonderful intuition. He has so many skills in his toolbox that whatever problem I bring in (physical or emotional) he can always help!

Wow wow wow! I've been regularly receiving treatments from Douglas for the past 6 years and can not recommend him highly enough. He is extremely intuitive and develops a treatment specifically required for my needs at each visit. Having experienced many different therapists it is always Douglas I return to time and time again.

Douglas is a brilliant therapist. He is warm, welcoming and reassuring. I have always enjoyed his treatments, mainly reiki, which is wonderfully insightful. I feel an enduring benefit to my wellbeing after a treatment. It is very tranquil retreat in the city centre, I highly recommend a visit

“Fantastic massage, combined with high intuitivity and Reiki- repairing the body and mind”

Each and every time i have a massage, Douglas never fails to amaze me as he intuitively works the tension out of my body, adding Reiki to the recipe where he feels it is needed. He selects specific oils for the situation. Douglas has a very gentle warm nature allowing clients to relax with ease. I highly recommend Douglas and plan to try some of his other therapies.

I have been seeing Duggi on and off for 15 years, and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone who wants to have a very effective treatment. Because of Duggi's intuitive gifts, each session is different and always very therapeutic. Usually I have a very potent combination of massage, reflexology and reiki. I could not ask for more, which is why I'm still seeing him! Joannie Minto

I have now been a reflexology client of Douglas’ for over 2 years and I have noticed a positive difference in both my mental and physical wellbeing over this time. Douglas takes a holistic and intuitive approach to each treatment session and I always leave feeling extremely relaxed and more balanced. I would recommend Douglas' reflexology sessions to anyone.

Can't rate Douglas highly enough, his massage's are like an outer experience. He completely tunes in with you and and it slowly feels like my burdens dissolve and I walk out feeling as light as a feather with my body and emotions back in synch and I'm ready to take on the world. Blissful. Thank you for all what you do.

Douglas is an excellent therapist. He focuses on the individual needs of his client. His massage is restorative and healing, and feels safe and very relaxing. Good for the body and the spirit.

Reflexology with Douglas is a hugely powerful treatment that allows yourself to reach your balance and to go through a deep process of inner transformation. I came away feeling calm and energised. He is able to teach you that healing not only comes from relaxing holistic treatments but from a deeper spiritual understanding as Reflexology helps on all level

Douglas quite simply gives the best massage I've ever had. A massage with him is profoundly relaxing, calming and healing. His combination of Indian head massage, reiki and pressure points is incredible. I could not recommend him highly enough.

Intuitive Massage

The massage I offer is the massage that I feel intuitively is right for YOU at the time of the treatment, and based on my training and experience. I am trained in Traditional Swedish Massage and Holistic Massage, Deep Tissue and Aromatherapy Massage Techniques, Hot Stone Massage, Indian Head Massage (Champissage) and Ayurvedic Massage Techniques. I offer an Integrated Massage which is based on incorporating a range of techniques within a massage, based upon how you are feeling at the time of the treatment and on my intuition as the treatment progresses. I am happy to offer massage during pregnancy after the first trimester.


Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflexes in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Reflexology is a unique system of manual techniques designed to therapeutically stimulate these reflexes, allowing the Reflexologist to locate and dissipate stagnant energy in the body to facilitate a more balanced energy flow. This aids the body in returning to a state of wholeness and homeostasis. A Reflexology treatment can be one of the most relaxing experiences imaginable, easing the body into a state of least resistance and thereby allowing a process of natural and uninterrupted “self-healing” to occur. This treatment is suitable during pregnancy after the first trimester.


Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique using “Universal Life Force Energy”, the energy that is flowing abundantly around and within all living things. When we are in excellent health, there is a powerful flow through the body. However, during stressful times, this energy flow is slowed down or restricted, manifesting as illness, mental or emotional upset or a general feeling of “out of sorts”. Reiki is a way of channelling energy through the hands of an attuned practitioner, which are placed on or above different parts of the client’s fully clothed body. Reiki re-balances and harmonises the recipient in a holistic way on a physical, mental, emotional & spiritual level and accelerates the body’s own natural healing process. The healing energy flows to wherever it is needed in the body; promoting deep relaxation and a feeling of profound wellbeing and greater inner calm. Suitable for people of all ages and in all states of health and can help to kick start your body’s own natural healing abilities bringing you back to a more healthy and balanced state. I work with the Usui System of Reiki.


Hypnotherapy unlocks the healing power of the unconscious mind to restore harmony both physically and mentally. Hypnosis is a state of profound relaxation, helping you to become inwardly focused on the solutions to problems. It helps you access your natural intelligence focusing your unconscious mind on overcoming a variety of problems and limitations. Like daydreaming, you are in control, at all times, in this ‘trance’ state. I also offer Past Life Regression Therapy. See my website, for further information.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)

EFT is a remarkable system for addressing all kinds of emotional problems. It was developed from TFT (Thought Field Therapy), the first discovery in energy psychology. EFT is a psychological version of acupressure, incorporating methods from Ancient Chinese Medicine and modern-day Applied Kinesiology. EFT is a gentle and non-invasive technique which is painless and has no known side effects. It is a process that involves tapping on energy meridians whilst tuning into an issue. The basis of EFT is that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system. EFT balances the body’s energy system, removing any disturbance to the energy flow. As the basic technique is easily learned, it can be taught to anyone to use as a self-healing tool for any issues in their lives. It thus becomes a method of EMPOWERING people to take control in any negative situation. Commonly, EFT is used to help with everyday fears, phobias, cravings and addictions.

Whilst the majority of my work has been as an independent Therapist, between 2008 and April 2011, I worked as a Senior Therapist at the twin Gloucestershire Spas at Calcot Manor and Barnsley House.

Reiki Level 1 Training

Now Taking Names for: REIKI LEVEL I TRAINING June 2017 - dates to be agreed with participants I'm organising a Reiki Level I Training in June/early July. The training will run over 2 days, either a Saturday and Sunday or 2 Sundays, depending on when the majority of participants are available. The dates will be set when I have confirmation from 2 or more participants. If there are only 2 participants, I will run the training over 1 day. Reiki Level 1 training is an introduction to working with Universal Life Force Energy - the energy that runs through and around us, and the state of which determines how we feel and function on a daily basis. This course is for those interested in learning how to use Reiki for self and family (you cannot practice Reiki on a Professional basis until you have completed Level II, at least). It's also a useful tool for Therapists to learn to enhance treatments which they already provide. The cost of the training is £150 which includes a Reiki Level I Manual, course Certificate and herbal teas. The cost can be divided into 3 monthly installments if preferred. To book your space, please contact me as early as possible with dates when you are available. Douglas
