Being a Massage Therapist is fulfilling Marisa's destiny in helping others heal

and feel better through Massage & Body work.


Massage was the change Marisa needed in her life, to feel a sense of peace and wellbeing.  Starting her massage career over 14 years ago, she finally felt as though she had found her life purpose; healing and helping people through Support, Massage & Body work.

 Marisa is continually upgrading her qualifications, last year she completed Advanced Pregnancy & Post Natal Shiatsu Massage Certificate (Well Mother/Suzanne Yates UK)  to support her Beautiful Pregnant & Post Natal Clients even more.

Marisa has a very passionate in supporting New Mums & Mums to be as she knows first hand how challenging it is to be a new Mum. For this very reason Marisa has recently studied 'Post Natal Doula Care' & is very excited to be able to offer this new service to her clients.


Marisa loves to connect with her clients & feels that 'It's very re- assuring for Pregnant & Post Natal Ladies  to know they are in safe/knowledgeable hands!



With a beautiful view, Retreat You's Home Clinic is set in a Tranquil, calm and peaceful environment allowing you to totally relax and leave your cares behind!  The Treatment time at Retreat You starts from the moment the clients are on the massage table so that we can ensure the client gets the full treatment time that they have paid for!
