Dawn is an AMAZING therapist! She has totally sorted my shoulders out - I have been carrying tension for years and what... she did released something which meant my overall posture has improved. I can not recommend Dawn highly enough. Don’t go anywhere else! I have had so many poor massages in Cornwall - I wish I’d found her years ago. Thank you Dawn you lovely human xread more

Met Dawn yesterday for the first time, as I thought her ethos and method, explained in detail on her website, was... really impressive. Just want to confirm what a number of other reviewers have done already - Dawn clearly has a deep knowledge of her craft and gave me both an assessment of things I am trying to change in my physique and some tools for assisting with that, and a very effective treatment from the muscle pain I was experiencing which motivated my appointment. Really thoroughly recommended.read more

I tend to not tell therapists I did beauty for 12 years as it can make people feel awkward but its also helpful to have... a more indepth view on a review. From my experience with Dawn... she is amazing and makes you comfortable as soon as you are greeted. Her room, her aura and personality to her technique is unique and just a little slice of perfection! She is welcoming, open and friendly while maintaining professionalism. I had the relax and restore massage which included meditation and a foot/head massage, the massage itself was a firm pressure which I prefer, dawn used a beautiful smelling oil that was neither heavy in texture or fragrance, just enough to add to the ambience. Dawn has made an environment where i felt open enough that if I wanted to change the pressure I was able to speak up and not just kind of "go through the motions" I've had numerous massages and separate meditations in my time and the combination was a winner! I highly recommend Dawn, even if you want an introduction to meditation or you're feeling the stress of life/work give Dawn a go. You won't be disappointed!read more

I’ve been to Dawn many times, whenever I’m down in Cornwall, as it is always both rejuvenating and relaxing. I tend to... leave Dawn to decide what’s best as she’s so experienced and has a natural ability to know what’s needed from her years of experience and knowledge of so many techniques and approaches both physical and mental. Wonderful!read more

I went to see Dawn for work related aches, pains and major burn out that had built up over the many years of desk work,... bad posture and tablet use, so I was in quite the sorry state by the time Dawn got to work on me.I'm quite shy and socially anxious, but Dawn put me at ease right away with her welcoming, kind and professional manner.Dawn was able to undo all of my built up tension, knots, stiffness and pain with her Maga Therapy. I've had two sessions so far and the difference is really noticeable. My muscles feel almost fluid compared to how stiff and locked up I was, my RSI has improved significantly.Dawn has an impressive amount of knowledge and experience that will not only help your aches, it will help you understand why and what you can do to help between sessions.I feel much better equipped to deal with my posture issues, RSI, even my stress management! Overall I feel 10 years younger and more healthy both physically and mentally. I could not recommend Dawn highly enough!read more

Dawn is a truly phenomenal therapist, I cannot recommend highly enough.I’ve been coming to Dawn for deep tissue... massage over the last year to treat back pain from poor posture and long hours at a desk. Every massage leaves me feeling restored and ‘myself’ again, with improved posture and that wonderful post-massage ache from the deep pressure. Each session is tailored to ease problem areas and any changes since the last treatment.We’re all worried about Covid, however Dawn’s studio feels safe, clean and welcoming (even the hand sanitizer smells lovely!)read more

i was apprehensive at first to attend my appointment due to the corona virus, particularly because i am at a moderate... high risk but i was in a lot of discomfort. Dawn was professional, caring and attentive to my concerns and put me at ease by explaining everything that she was doing to keep her clients safe and herself and what i should expect when arriving for my appointment. As i am a dental nurse and decontamination lead i was very impressed by all that she was doing prior, during and after my appointment.i felt very confident and safe the whole time, she really is going above and beyond. Dawn has been helping to relieve pain in my lower back and shoulders and she is very intuitive to where my pain is and what is causing it. she has been giving me exercises to do at home to improve my posture and alleviate any pain and tensions. i highly recommend her.read more

I have just had another reappointment with Dawn since she has been able to re-open. I was a little apprehensive... following all the concerns with Covid, however Dawn put my mind at rest from first contact. She clearly explained the new processes and requirements. She is now treating in a new room (in the same building), it was comfortable, clean and welcoming. The whole environment was very clean and well prepared so I have no concerns about booking my next treatment!read more

Pregnancy Massage FAQ

Your massage session is tailored to your needs, therefore there is no typical session. That being said, there are specific areas (reflex points) on your hands, wrists, ankles and feet which are avoided until the late stages of pregnancy (after 39 weeks).

You can have a massage as often as you like during your pregnancy, provided that you are well and enjoying an uncomplicated pregnancy.

In the early stages of pregnancy, you can lie on your stomach. However, once you have reached your second trimester you will be treated whilst lying on your side, bolstered with memory foam cushions and supports which maintain your comfort and safety throughout your massage session.

Yes. There are two main reasons – types of massage oil to be used and areas not to treat.  The use of essential oils is avoided, purely because of the chemical composition and the effect, if any, there could be on your developing baby. That being said, mandarin oil could be used as it is deemed to be the safest. Grapeseed (base massage oil) is used as it is deemed hypoallergenic, and therefore the safest.  I do not massage the abdomen, nor the reflex points associated with the uterus and pelvic areas.

Yes. Getting a neck and shoulder massage will address your existing stress; aches, tensions, headaches and pain. If your pregnancy is high-risk always check with your midwife or doctor before booking.

You can have a prenatal massage as often as you wish. Pregnancy massage relieves stress,  back, muscle and joint pain as well as cramps, sciatica and headaches. Pregnancy massage is a great alternative to pain medications which are limited due to pregnancy. If you are having a difficult pregnancy: experiencing back pain, difficulty sleeping, leg cramps and/or swelling I recommend coming in once a week during your last trimester.
