I support men and women through different stages of their lives by holding a healing space to restore homeostasis. I have particular interest in women’s health from menstruation and fertility to pregnancy and menopause. I give birth preparation sessions for individuals and couples, having lots of resource from having two ecstatic, home, water births in London and Amsterdam. I studied with Suzanne on the Shiatsu for Pregnancy Diploma course in 2007 and prior to that studied extraordinary vessels and infertility. In 2002, I began studying shiatsu after being a professional dancer for many years and had tried many, different kinds of massage therapies to help with injuries. From 2006 to present, I have worked and lived in 15 countries on four different continents. I am currently living in South East Asia in Cambodia. I spend the summers in London, Yorkshire and Amsterdam so please drop me a line to find out where I am, if you are interested in treatments.

I also run regular baby shiatsu classes and labour support workshops for women and their birthing partners.
Using massage, shiatsu and aromatherapy to support women and their families to have a happy and natural pregnancy. As well as offering massage and shiatsu treatments, I will help support the whole pregnancy journey with an individually created unique range of natural aromatherapy products with tailored advise on how to use them at home; this could include a personalised massage blend, a tummy balm, a sore aching back balm, an inhaler for morning sickness or nappy rash gel for when baby arrives ❤️.
“I spent two wonderful hours each week with Fen during my pregnancy, during which she treated me to a perfectly tailored session of massage, shiatsu and aromatherapy. Her treatments and magic touch helped me relax and work through the physical niggles of pregnancy, and become more in tune with my body as it changed. Our sessions also played a huge part in preparation for labour. The breathing techniques and body positioning work we did together were invaluable when the big day came. Fen has a warm, calm and open approach to her sessions which ensure that both body and mind get the care and attention they need. I can’t recommend Fen’s pregnancy massage highly enough!” Anne, Lecturer, Researcher and new mum!

I have finished my training with Suzanne in 2004 and have been working with women for 17 years. I offer:

My approach is transpersonal which means I see you with the issue you bring however I focus in the existing health in you, what is alive in you and perhaps you are unable to connect with at the time. I believe we are much more than we believe ourselves to be.
I can help women experiencing the following:
*Pregnancy issues antenatally and postnatally
The extra tools I use during my treatments are based on sound training and are used according to your specific needs. Here are some of the tools I use:
*Deep abdominal massage (based on Maya Abdominal Massage and Chi New Tsang)
I offer home and hospital visits in London SW area
I speak Portuguese and Spanish
I trained in shiatsu for pregnancy with Suzanne a few years ago and have since worked with many women supporting them through their journey through pregnancy and beyond. I have found it to be extremely rewarding working with women in pregnancy as it is obvious how beneficial any form of nurturing bodywork is for them during this transition. I am also a massage and nutritional therapist and yoga teacher and love to bring all of my skills and knowledge to a session. I find emotional support to be of particular importance and ensuring that the woman I’m working with feels totally comfortable and able to relax with me.
