Vicki is the founder of Baby-To-Big-Therapies and a Certified Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher.
“I offer therapeutic massage for relaxation, pain relief and as an aid to injury prevention. My aim is to relieve physical as well as emotional stress, and I strongly believe in massage as a viable modality for enhancing overall health and well-being.
I’ve worked with many clients of all age and activity range, and each massage is designed for that client’s very individual needs.
My passion for baby yoga stemmed from having my first child Evie where I was a participating mum on a baby yoga course. I made some great friends and thoroughly enjoyed the emotional and physical benefits that these classes provided and subsequently continued with with my second daughter. After experiencing the benefits of yoga first hand, not only for babies but mums too I decided it was something I wanted to take further.”
Vicki has a great interest in how touch can be used to communicate and relax in life situations. She’s particularly passionate about the power of nurturing touch and its benefits not only for the baby but the entire family unit and as a result dedicates her time to sharing her skills and techniques with others.
Vicki’s teaching style is one of fun, open and honesty, allowing you to feel calm, relaxed and comfortable in not only hers, but the class environment.
“So relaxing. Just what I needed. Vicki made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. Amazing hands! Felt lots of knots and stress being released. Would definitely recommend.“
“I have been treated by Vicki for over a year now on a regular basis. She is by far the best therapist I have ever used. I suffer from back pain, stress and headaches and since treatment by Vicki these have been reduced significantly. My sleep has improved and my energy levels go up for at least two weeks after treatment. Vicki makes me feel at ease and is very professional.”
“Baby Yoga with Vicki was just fantastic and such great fun, Charlie loved all the different songs and actions and both of us felt totally relaxed in the small, intimate group and lovely studio space. Vicki is a brilliant teacher and all the babies love her soothing voice and calm but fun energy. It felt so great to have a few minutes of ‘me time’ entwined, I hadn’t stretched my shoulders for months and Charlie loved watching me do some Yoga too!! A ‘must do’ for Mum and baby..”
