Douglas' journey as a masseur began while travelling and living in Thailand from 2016 where he learnt Thai and Ayurvedic massage. He continued to train in Edinburgh where he completed a Diploma in Holistic Massage Therapy with the Massage Training Institute, which included Swedish and Deep Tissue massage. He has since gone on to specialise in Myofascial Release, and is now training in Sports and Remedial Massage so to offer a higher quality treatment.
From the initial consultation Douglas will work with you toward your specific aims, whether stress management or the relief of pain. Swedish massage is excellent for relaxation and as a warm up for deep tissue work on chronically tight or sore muscles. Douglas believes that massage is an essential element of self-care. In his own words, "sharing relaxed and body centred presence is one of life's greatest gifts." In his spare time he enjoys nature while walking, cycling or surfing. His supportive, complementary practices are regular yoga, qi gong, and Non-violent Communication.

Katherine: Douglas was very professional and made me feel very comfortable with acarm and gentle approach. I have a 30 minute treatment which was a back massarge it felt really nice and had a deep healing quality that helped me relax and think about change I can make in my life. I would highly recommend Douglas for anyone in stress or pain. August 26, 2023
