Rhian recently gained a Diploma in Swedish Massage and is excited to be joining our Graduate Clinic. Previously a linguist and translator by trade, Rhian has always been keenly interested in overall well-being and nutrition. Her desire to work within complementary therapies stems from personal experience of close friends and family suffering from chronic pain. As a firm believer that complementary therapies are integral to the pursuit of a healthy, balanced lifestyle, she actively encourages patients to embrace both conventional treatments and complementary therapies, where possible. Rhian believes strongly that living a preventative lifestyle helps pre-empt pain and sickness, and that natural medicines and a holistic approach to healthcare can play an important role in achieving this. It is all part of a learning process about how to treat the body on a day-to-day level, making small but significant changes that bring balance and empowerment to our lives.

Rhian aims to provide a safe, nurturing space to experience the full benefits of therapeutic massage, and ensures she meets the needs and wishes of each individual client

Alongside working at Neal’s Yard Remedies, Rhian volunteers for the Cystic Fibrosis Charity, Butterfly Trust, and works with Athlete’s Angels massaging at sports events throughout Scotland. Keen to expand her knowledge and skills within holistic and complementary therapies, Rhian is looking forward to embarking on a Diploma in Sports & Remedial massage later this year. She aims to add Aromatherapy and Reflexology to her portfolio in the future.
