Job Title:


In my practice I mix different massage techniques (Sports Massage, Swedish, Curanderismo) to release muscle tension and support Chiropractic care. Based on the Chiropractic philosophy that the body has an innate intelligence and the power to heal itself, I am here to guide the body/mind with my knowledge, sensitivity and intuition.

I am a Chiropractic-Massage Therapist. I have been studying Sports Massage Therapy (Level 3) at South Devon College, Swedish Massage and Massage Therapy with CLK formation in Lyon, France and Curanderismo (traditional Mexican medicine) online with the University of New Mexico, and I am level 2 certified NCFE CACHE in understanding Nutrition and Health.

Sports Massage is a deep tissue massage technique focusing on muscles, ligaments and joints.

Swedish Massage is inspired by old techniques used by greek and roman in baths during antiquity. It is a whole-body therapeutic massage treatment. It calms and balances the nervous system by focusing on muscles and soft tissues. It reduces the stress, improve the immune system, increase flexibility, helps rehabilitation after muscles injuries, increases blood flow.

Curanderismo is an holistic approach, focusing on the soul and using limpias (energy cleansing). It is a philosophy considering that the body reflects what is happening at an emotional and spiritual level. It uses massage as well as natural elements, bath and other rituals in ceremonies honoring nature, where the curandero helps the energy to circulate from the “gods” to the person. I am not a curandera but uses the ideas and massages from this philosophy.

“ The treatments I had with Caroline were my first experiences of Hydrotherm, and I would thoroughly recommend the treatment and Caroline as a practitioner. The consultation enabled the treatment to be highly tailored to my needs and everything felt spacious and unhurried. I released physical and emotional tension, within the safely held beautiful space of Ola. A real treat in my busy life. “


The Hydrotherm massage with Caroline was incredible. Loved the floaty movements and the warmth of the bed (what an awesome idea!) and her presence with her hands and being


My experience with Hydrotherm massage has been unlike any other massage I’ve had - the warmth of the heated pads helped my body relax deeply into the massage and eased my aches and pains. I loved feeling in contact with both the gentle heat and the movement of the water. The whole thing felt very fluid, relaxing and at the same time energising. My partner said I seemed transformed afterwards. Thank you!


The massage was amazing! Caroline is very skilled and I felt energised afterwards and for days afterwards too. Thank you!
