Rosa studied ‘Acting for Stage and Screen’ at Napier and Queen Margaret’s College Edinburgh, graduating in 2009. As part of her degree course Rosa studied movement and body language and became interested in how the actor uses the body to communicate with an audience and how non-verbal body language is used to create mood and convey emotion in a performance. During her studies, and after benefiting from massage therapy herself, she went on to complete a short course in massage therapy and liked it so much that she decided to take a longer period of study and make it her career. Rose gained ITEC and CIDESCO qualifications and worked in the industry in hotel spas and a high street salon for three years, gaining experience and improving her skills; she then decided to set up her own massage therapy practice.
Massage is particularly useful in helping to relieve the stress and strain of modern day living that we all experience in our busy lives. It is one of the safest and most popular complementary treatments. Many clients will use massage as a personal reward or special treat – time to relax and unwind. Some will use massage to help relieve symptoms of emotional stress such as anxiety, headaches, depression while others will find it is beneficial in releasing muscular tension and generally helping to improve their physical wellbeing. Even just the direct physical touch of the masseur can be healing. Whatever their needs, Rosa will tailor treatments to suit each individual client.
