I believe you already have everything you need to heal and feel well.

My job is to help you access the healing power within you. When our body and mind are allowed to relax, tension patterns can also start to shift.

I am a massage therapist based in Newcastle’s East End. I love seeing my clients overcome big and small health complaints by committing to a self-care routine that nourishes their whole being.

My treatments are a combination of remedial and relaxation massage techniques, craniosacral therapy, myofascial and triggerpoint release as well as mindfulness exercises.

I specialise in stress related conditions such as migraines, tension headaches, neck, shoulder and TMJ pain, back problems, chronic pain conditions, depression and anxiety.

Massage is also a wonderful ‘tune up’ for anyone wanting to feel happy and well and look after their long-term health.

“I met Riina after a very traumatic family event. I was suffering from shock, anxiety and a constant headache that just would not go away. Upon the recommendation of a nurse at my Doctor’s practice, I made an appointment with Riina. From the moment I met Riina I knew I was in good hands.  Her gentle caring words and magic hands have done wonders. My headaches disappeared over a period of a couple of weeks and I owe my gratitude to Riina for her help. A calm environment and lovely hand-made balms helped with my healing.  Thank you Riina from the bottom of my heart.”

“I had really bad pain in my right hip during my second pregnancy. I saw Riina for number of massages throughout the pregnancy and the difference it made was amazing! I could move again freely without pain. Riina is lovely and I highly recommend her.”

“Over the years I have seen too many remedial massage therapists to mention.  But every now and again you meet a person that you feel comfortable with straight away. Riina is one of those rare people.  I had been going to see her for 12 months when I finally got my husband to go along too. We both suffer from lower back problems, but sometimes men especially find it hard to ask for help. My husband getting the pain relief he needed and feeling comfortable around Riina meant the world to us both.  Riina can make anyone of any age or gender feel at ease, nothing seems to phase her.  She always makes sure that you get the treatment you need, even if it means spending that extra few minutes with you to ensure the successful outcome.”
