Simply Relaxing enters its 29th year in 2024 and i have great plans for this year, I am booked to attend another Meditation Course, and more information will follow very soon. I have noticed that, since the pandemic, you are struggling more with anxiety, and finding it hard to relax so I have been on several courses to introduce Wellness Therapies.  I love Mindfulness,  Meditation, and Reiki, they all help you learn ways to distract your mind from constant worrying. I have also completed my Reiki Master Teacher Training course and intend to offer Reiki courses so you can learn how to improve your self-care.

In our Shop, we are very pleased to stock our own range of organic aromatherapy products and gifts.

Who Am I?

My name is Linda, I love everything to do with plants, from gardening to using aromatherapy in my home and business, I am a committed organic gardener, and do not believe in using chemicals, there is no need to use slug pellets as they kill hedgehogs, owls and lots of other animals.  Companion gardening using nature’s own medicine cupboard is far more effective, yes some plants get eaten but most grow and that is fine by me!!

In 1993, I began my training to become a Holistic therapist, I was working as a Coach Driver in my Fathers business, Nova Scotia and went for an aromatherapy massage.  I enjoyed it so much I enrolled on a basic massage course at South Cheshire College and was hooked!

I went on to study Reflexology, Aromatherapy and Advanced Massage. I opened Simply Relaxing in 1995, fresh-faced and very eager.  I welcomed Elemis into the salon and attended many courses with them including Hot Stone Massage, Facials, and Bodywraps to name but a few.  In 1998 I was very lucky to have a daughter, Claire, this changed my whole outlook on how I mixed my business and personal life.

Then in 2002, I decided to bring Simply Relaxing back to its roots as a Holistic Therapy Salon and began my search for Global therapies such as Mongolian Hot Milk massage, Tibetan Head massage, Indonesian Ritual massage, and Japanese Natural Face Lift massage.

This year I have been in business for 29 years and have loved every moment. This year, I am celebrating finishing my 6 year training in reflexology, aromatherapy and holistic therapy, 30 years ago.

Being able to learn wonderful therapies like Reiki, massage, and reflexology is truly wonderful. During  2023 I was very excited to introduce Subtle Reflexology to the treatment menu, if you struggle with anxiety, have suffered a loss, or find times hard at the moment, this is a wonderful therapy to try.

I was able to specialise in maternity reflexology treatments as I feel it is very important that everyone can enjoy therapy safely.  I learned how to stimulate your natural lymphatic flow using Reflexology, this is great for fluid retention or repeated infections, your lymph needs to be pumped around your body using your breathing, exercise, massage or reflexology.

Being organic is highly important, as we need to protect our soils and environment plus by using less harsh chemicals in our skin and bodycare products, we are less likely to have a reaction as they are very gentle, we now stock our own organic, vegan-friendly, cruelty-free products, @helpmeorganics  in the shop. All aromatherapy used in our massage treatments is our own Professional massage oils, blended by me!

My appetite for Holistic therapy is as strong as ever. I want to spend the next year developing Wellness Therapies to help you learn how to combat anxiety, become confident with meditation and discover the healing benefits of Reiki. I have been massaging for a very long time now and want to take Simply Relaxing to its next phase.  I am very proud of Simply Relaxing and Helpmeorganics, I am determined to keep the salon a safe, warm and quiet environment for you to feel relaxed and at your very best.

Thank you for supporting me over the last 29 years, as most of you know my plan to semi-retire, I have every intention to continue as a therapist, just not as many days and, sadly, I will be moving to a different salon but not until i have sold my property. I am very happy to be in my little salon on Chester Road!

We are proud to be part of the FHT
