Ann Khattab

Ann Khattab

Ever since receiving Reflexology therapy in her twenties, and experiencing how the treatments helped with insomnia and calmed her nervous system, Ann has been interested in complimentary therapies. It was the beginning of a long journey of trying different types of therapies to improve her health.

It was only much later in life when treated with Cranio-Sacral Reflexology for headaches, anxieties and hormonal imbalance that Ann got to the bottom of her health issues. A trauma long forgotten was the underlying cause of her symptoms. Ann has long been relieved of these symptoms and, inspired by her own healing journey, now helps others to overcome their challenges.

Since qualifying in Reflexology and Swedish Massage, Ann has trained in various modalities and has advanced her work to becoming a Cranio-Sacral Reflexologist and a Therapeutic Massage Therapist.

Therapeutic Massage is defined as a manual manipulation of soft body tissues; muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments - to enhance a person's health and well-being. Ann incorporates different techniques into her massage, which may be from a very light effleurage to deep tissue pressure.

Each treatment is tailored to suit the individual. A client may only need one treatment to have the desired outcome or may be recommended to receive a course of treatments to have a real impact.
