Trained in many styles of massages ranging from holistic and advanced deep tissue to hot stone and stick massages. The most popular is a combination massage utilising bits from Lomi Lomi, tuina stick and stones and is both therapeutic and relaxing.

Simon Conway:"I have worked extensively with people facing all kinds of stress whether it is starting a new school, preparing for college examinations, getting married, having a baby or going through a bereavement: we are all affected at one time or another.

In acupuncture I use a gentler needling style than that which I was trained. I studied classical acupuncture acording to traditional chinese medicine and have done additional courses on channel theory and Dr Tan & Master Tong Acupuncture Styles. I qualified as a herbalist in 1994 and was a lecturer at the Traditional Herbal Medicine College in Zimbabwe. My massage training encompasses many styles from therapeutic, deep tissue and holistic to hot stones, cupping and indian head massage, amongst others."
