“Thank you to Catherine for creating such a deeply personal and healing cleansing retreat! Catherine is such a knowledgeable herbalist and gives you nuanced support throughout your whole journey. I can’t recommend it enough!!!”

Melissa, UK, -

My Chi Nei Tsang sessions with Catherine Heartwood have been marvelous. Unlike some other practitioners she does not merely follow a prescribed protocol. Her approach is highly personalized. Her focus and concentration allows her to feel and work on what others may miss. She has great sensitivity and responsiveness. Thank you Catherine.

“Catherine and Yatri are both magical people and their kindness, their patience and absolute pure inside beauty is something that I have never experienced so deeply before. I had a challenging emotional week and they helped guide me through it. They listened, they heard me and they guided me to help me through. Something that is rare these days and I shall never forget. I am already looking to go out on their next retreat, just because I want to be in their company again! The cleanse itself was really straightforward for me this time around, I felt amazing after 7 days! Just what was needed. Thank you to you both, see you soon hopefully!”

“Dear future detoxers,

I spent 5 days at the detox retreat with Catherine and Yatri and little to say is that I got completely swept off my feet! I really did not expect that! First of all they are amazing and very kind human beings and that is so refreshing you feel in security and surrounded by love! The detox treatment really does it’s job and that is amazing! I had the opportunity to take massages with Catherine and Yatri and that was just so incredible, these are way more than simple massages it goes beyond and helps you release so much you have kept inside you for years! I loved the TRE session I had with Catherine- again this was so unexpected and so useful and moving for me! Thank you so much loves for all you have brought and given me I am so grateful!!”

Catherine is able to read my body perfectly and give it exactly what it needs each time I have a session. She is able to focus on problem areas, as well as provide a soothing, relaxing and nurturing full body massage. Her hands just seem to melt into me especially, with Reiki energy work – I get up off the table lighter, brighter and more in my heart. Highly recommended!

Living Wisdom In Your Life

Signature Whole Body Massage

Drawing from a wide variety of styles, such as Swedish, Deep Tissue, Acupressure, Abhyanga, Lomi-lomi, Aromatherapy and Reiki, I combine these to co-create your Personal Signature Massage best suited to your needs and problem areas.

Specific Problem Area

I specialise in Problem Areas
& enjoy dedicating the whole session to your particular problem area.

Abdominal Massage
Chi Nei Tsang

Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) is a Taoist therapy which focuses upon healing the digestive system and the internal organs. Unresolved emotions are stored in our organs and when left untreated, causes blockages in our entire body through the meridian system. The session will be as deep or as gentle as you wish, to release stuck fascia that stagnates the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, sexual organs, pancreas, lungs and small and large intestines. It will stimulate the lymph and provide relief for many types of digestive issues with particular benefits for women’s health.


Reflexology is a healing tradition based on specific pressure points relating to other places in the body. Thus, massage and pressure applied to the hands, feet and ears will provide relief for many conditions, physically and emotionally, as well as mental stress and insomnia. This is a clothes on massage and simple to fit into your busy lunch break or after work schedule.


Reiki is high vibrational subtle energy work which rebalances your cellular being and reconnects your emotional, mental and physical bodies with that of your Soul. It is received with clothes on and can be experienced as very relaxing or highly inspiring. Practising as a Reiki Master, Catherine has given hundreds of sessions and initiated dozens of people into this tradition.

*Understanding your Dosha of Vata, Pitta or Kapha
