Kirsten McFarlane, MGHT
Massage has been an integral part of my life for over 30 years. Prior to starting massage therapy on a professional level in 2010, I completed non-professional courses including Shiatsu, Reflexology, Holistic massage, baby massage and baby yoga for my own well-being, and for giving massages to friends and family. Since 2010 I have built up professional certifications in a range of therapies, as well as facials.
The rebalancing holistic massage I offer is a unique one which has evolved from my own experience of giving and receiving massages, my professional education in massage therapies, plus tools for health I have picked up over the years: Meditation, alternative medicines, herbalism & healthy eating.
The massages are designed to aid the body in its healing and rebalancing processes. I tailor the sessions to my client's individual needs, so a session may include some hot stone therapy, deep tissue massage & reflexology. The aromatherapy can include providing custom-made blends for home use.
I am certified and insured with The Guild of Holistic Therapists (MGHT) with insurance coverage for Treatments, Public and Product Liability for £6 million. I also have a PTTLS - Level 3 BTEC certification for teaching. My honours degree is in Fine Art (from Glasgow School of Art 1995), and I still work on art commissions.
