Delia Burke - Clinical Aromatherapist, Clinical Reflexologist, Therapeutic Massage Therapist

There are many things that I am passionate about: Family, friends, my planet, health and well being, cooking and being creative are the things that instantly come to mind.

How do I make a valid contribution to the world, while maintaining the work life balance? I am blessed to be doing what I love! I love Aromatherapy and I love to cook. It makes perfect sense to me that I combine the two and develop recipes for skincare and well being. This way, I get to nurture all the things that I love.

Very Happy Me.

Experience

I studied Complementary Health Science at The University of Plymouth, I have an advanced Diploma in Clinical Aromatherapy, Advanced Diploma in Reflexology and a Diploma in Health and Social care. I am a fully trained and qualified therapeutic massage therapist.

I am a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapist (FHT) and an extremely proud member of Plymouth Naturopathic and Functional Medicine Clinic. I offer face to face consultation and massage therapies.

Therapeutic massage

Holistic therapy massage may aid the recovery of a wide range of conditions from stress, anxiety and sleeplessness to poor digestion, pain, recovery of injury, muscle strain, migraine / headaches and sinus congestion. The list is almost endless.

Sports injury and deep tissue massage

Deep massage therapy can help to realigning deeper layers of muscles and relieve the stress of incurred injury. This treatment aims to work deeper into the muscles, aiding release of tissue. It is often used for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.

Clinical reflexology

Reflexology is a healing therapy which works with points on the foot known as the reflexes. This is deeply relaxing and is tailored to the individual. Reflexology may help to bring about balance enabling the healing process by facilitation of your body’s own potential for well-being.

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD)

This deeply relaxing massage therapy may promote the healing of injury such as fracture, torn ligaments and sprains. Patients often visit after surgery to aid in the reduction of swelling and pain. MLD may aid chronic conditions such as arthritis and is used widely to reduce swollen ankles and legs, and puffy eyes. MLD may promote healing of wounds and possibly improve the appearance of old scars.
