I am sorry but due to the current coronavirus outbreak
I am now closed until we have safe guidelines from the government.
Even though I have strict hygiene procedures before and after every client,
I cannot guarantee I am not carrying the virus.
I need to keep myself and my clients safe.
Take care. Chris.

my philosophy...

In today’s modern society, most people lead very busy and frantic lives. They are over stimulated by numerous sounds and images that they have to constantly process. It is important for us to find a space in our world, as it is in the silence that we listen to our hearts and minds.

what my customers say...

"Sound therapy induces in me a great sense of physcial and mental relaxation, which I find calming and energising." Marion.

"I am really grateful that Chris has moved into Wensleydale - I receive regular massage therapy from her, which never fails to sooth my aches and pains. Chris provides fantastic service. " Rachel.

"A brilliant massage, very knowledgeable and professional." Phil.

"What a find on our last day of our holiday, the lovely Christine did and amazing bamboo massage. Cannot recommend enough... " Joanne.

about me...

I am Christine Donovan-Brown.
I was born in Sheffield and lived in South Yorkshire till 2012, when unexpectedly life changed and I decided to move to The Yorkshire Dales. I feel very privileged to live in such a beautiful part of the world. It is totally different to where I was born but both places are extremely special to me.

Don’t let health problems, poor well-being or stress hold you back any longer. Take the first step towards living the life you want.
