Gail McAndrew

Gail began her massage journey in 2000 with a Diploma in Clinical Aromatherapy and since then has gone on to gain qualifications in a number of complementary massage therapies including reflexology, sports and hot stone massage.  Having worked from Napiers Herbal Healthcare in Edinburgh until 2011, Gail then returned to full-time study and began to focus on the provision of massage at sporting and leisure events as well as within workplace-based settings.  She is trained in both therapeutic and remedial massage techniques which can be used either to address specific physical symptoms, or alternatively provide a luxurious treatment focused on pure relaxation.

Treatments with Gail will begin with a short consultation where the client will have an opportunity to discuss, in confidence, any existing health conditions, injuries or lifestyle concerns that they may have.  This will allow Gail to direct each individual treatment towards meeting the client’s needs using the most effective techniques possible.  In line with her personal ethos, Gail uses ethically-sourced, organic oils that are rich in nutrients and kind to your skin.

Gail will only be offering 60 minute appointments and the following services:

  • Sports, Relax and Remedial massage
  • Aromatherapy
  • Reflexolgy
  • Thai foot massage

You can follow Gail on her Knead Massage Facebook page where you can also contact her directly with specific questions before your treatment.
