What happens on my first visit?

There will be a brief consultation form to fill out. Any information given by you either on the form or during the treatment will be held in strictest confidence and is only used to ensure that the treatment you receive is appropriate for your health and wellbeing. Your treatment will be explained to you and you are free to ask questions at any time. Your modesty will be preserved at all times by either a sarong or towels, but you will be expected to remove your clothing except your pants or knickers so that your major muscles can be treated.

Aftercare information

Please try to drink plenty of water or other fluids in the day following your treatment. This will enhance your healing and minimize any aches after your massage therapy. Any headaches or aches after massage therapy will usually pass with use of headache tablets, or a warm bath or hot water bottle on your ache. In particular, after Ayurvedic Abdominal massage please drink plenty of warm fluids, especially ginger tea or other herbal teas. Avoid eating for at least one hour after your Ayurvedic Abdominal treatment and then for the next 24 hours please eat small, light meals. The abdominal massage is a powerful treatment that will increase digestive activity for 48 hours or more after treatment and you will notice that you need to use the toilet far more than usual.

About Emma

about emma at emma's massage therapyAlthough Emma was born and grew up in Essex, she spent the next twenty years living and working abroad.

Her time in Nepal, India, France and the United States has influenced the approach she now follows within massage therapy. From her time in Nepal, Emma learned the value of good health and how the 'good heart' of a practioner can bring as much healing as the pills and potions they prescribe. From her time in India, Emma learned to respect the Ayurveda system of health and wellbeing, especially the motto 'put nothing on your skin that you wouldn't be happy to eat'. During her years in the United States, Emma studied anatomy and physiology, tried every form of massage and alternative healing she encountered, and learned to value great customer service with a smile. From her time in France, Emma learned to chop firewood, grow vegetables and to value community.

Emma also spent three years living and meditating in a Tibetan Buddhist retreat and still tries to live by the Buddhist principles of speaking the truth without harm, acting in a non-harmful way and making a livelihood in a non-harmful manner. The level of her success varies from day to day!

Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage is based on the spirit of Aloha. This is the ancient way of the indigenous Hawaiian peoples, Aloha means 'the breath of the sacred is in our presence'. In other words, we should try and respect those around us as sacred, and our surroundings too. So a Lomi Lomi massage will respect the client, and be adapted to their needs and expectation. It will never be uncomfortable or unpleasant and will leave you feeling better and wanting more. So it's for this reason that Emma favours this method of massage therapy above others.

With a grounding in Swedish holistic massage, Emma went on to study Ayurvedic therapies and Lomi Lomi and aspires to travel to Hawaii to study more with the masters.

When she's not working, Emma enjoys leading meditation classes at Canvey Meditation and Relaxation.

Zoe Rich

Would highly recommend Emma's massage. Pure heaven and such a lovely way to de-stress. Best night's sleep after I have one.

I'd been developing more and more stiffness in my lower back and shoulders, mainly due to long hours on the computer, when Emma was recommended to me.
Although I'd had a few massages in the past, Lomi Lomi was an entirely new experience. I found the long sweeping movements combined with the warm oil, wonderfully relaxing. And I felt instantly comfortable with Emma - she has a warmth and integrity that really puts you at your ease.
She constantly adjusted the pressure she was using, ensuring I was always comfortable, yet always being firm enough to release the tension from my knotted muscles. Emma is working wonders for my shoulders - I cannot rate her highly enough

I started having lomi lomi massage with Emma a few months ago. I'd had several different kinds of massage over the years and found them either fairly ineffective or just a bit painful. The lomi lomi massage with Emma is just something else. Her sensitivity and skill means that she can warm and relax the muscles to such a point that she's able to go really very deep without you realising. This results in not only a wonderful deep calming of the mind but a feeling of lightness and relaxation throughout the entire body both during and after the massage. I've just returned from the red sea and the beautiful fluid movement of this of massage took me right back to the feeling of those warm waves all around me. Thank you Emma, I couldn't recommend you more highly

Yvonne Booth


I hadn't had Lomi Lomi massage before, but was very interested in the idea of how it worked, and the ideas behind it, so I booked a session with Emma, who was exceptional. I was very surprised how strong she was as she could easily work on my body where other styles of massage fail.
Emma was very professional and took her time in explaining to me where the art came from.
I used to have a lot of Swedish body massages but Emma has converted me to Lomi Lomi, I will definitely rebook and tell my friends
