Meet Our Therapists

Below are the details of our therapists and what each therapist is offering.

  • Ridgeway Breast Care Helen Therapists

    Helen Breward

    Helen qualified as a hypnotherapist in 2011. After experiencing hot flushes herself she began to wonder if hypnotherapy could help to reduce them. She decided to look into helping other women in a similar situation; figuring that if you mind is powerful enough to control pain, then why can’t it control your body temperature? After six months of trials, it became clear that the menopause relief programme was a success with 4 out of 5 trial clients having very positive results and more control over their hot flushes.

    A 25 minute session will include a brief consultation and a mini session of hypnotherapy or 'mind massage'. Hypnotherapy sessions are positive, enjoyable and very relaxing and people leave feeling stronger in themselves, positive and calm.

  • Ridgeway Breast Care Elisabeth Nuttal Therapists

    Elisabeth Nuttall

    Elisabeth has worked as a therapist for over 12 years and volunteered for the past 7 years at Prospect Hospice, where she works on the in-patient unit, supporting patients and families. She also works as support reflexologist with Penny Brohn Cancer Care in partnership with Cancer Partners UK, supporting patients who are undergoing radiotherapy and chemotherapy. In addition to doing 'general' reflexology, she has completed further training in 'Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage'. This is aimed specifically at women who have had breast cancer and may be experiencing secondary lymphoedema.

    In addition to reflexology, Elisabeth also practices Reiki, Bowen Technique, and M Technique.

  • Ridgeway Breast Care Therapist Jane

    Jane Toomer

    Jane has been an holistic beauty therapist since 2001. After working in offices for most of her working life she made a drastic decision in 2000 to re-train as a beauty therapist. Jane went on to take numerous courses so that she could eventually work from home and be able to offer a wide variety of treatments.

    Jane slowly built up her clients, working from home on Saturdays, whilst carrying on with her full-time employment, and then, in 2004 she took the plunge!! Jane has some really lovely ladies who love coming to the peace and quiet of her home "salon" for all their beauty and holistic treatments.

    Jane is a Member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists and the International Council of Holistic Therapists and on the pamper days will be offering the choice of taster treatments in reflexology and hot stone back/shoulder massage.

  • Ridgeway Breast Care Therapists

    Denise Close

    With over 14 years of experience in the beauty industry Denise will pamper you with a file & polish with a selection of colours from bright reds to delicate pastels, the choice is yours! A relaxing hand massage is included!

    Are your nails needing a helping hand? There is a brand new system released called IBX. The penetrative toughening system works inside the nail instead of sitting on top like traditional nail services so you can build up length and durability. IBX actually fuses the layers in the upper portion of the nail plate together with an interpenetrating polymer network (IPN) and locks itself within the nail plate – a permanent addition that will never need removal!

    Think of IBX as a built-in insurance policy for your manicure. It can be used underneath Shellac and Vinylux as well as alone on bare nails, simultaneously toughening and protecting the natural nail. Give your nails the length, strength and durability they deserve with IBX. If you would like IBX and a polish, this will take a double session, so please mention this when booking.

  • Elaine Scott Ridgeway Breast Care Therapists

    Elaine Scott

    Elaine qualified in Beauty Therapy (General) and Swedish Massage in 2007/8, using her skills on family and friends until January 2011 when she started her own business working from home and visiting clients offering massages, wax treatments, manicures, pedicures, eye treatments and facials.

    Elaine is a Neal’s Yard Organic consultant which she started to help promote her business and has enabled her to use organic products, where possible, for her clients. Elaine will be offering facials on the day.

  • Ridgeway Breast Care Therapists with Ros

    Ros Burden

    Acupuncture is well known as a treatment to reduce stress and help relaxation for patients going through cancer treatments. What is less well known is that it can help boost the immune system and reduce the side effects of radio and chemo therapy. Ros will offer treatments to suit her patients whether they need 1) to relax, 2) to reduce anxiety and fear, 3) to boost energy and immunity following or during treatment, 4) to reduce the side effects of treatment. Acupuncture is safe to use at all stages of treatment although there may be some points which may not be used.

    Ros trained for five years at Westminster University and spent time at a teaching hospital in Chengdu, China where Western and Eastern medicine worked together towards the holistic recovery of the patient. Ros is delighted to have been asked to help with these special pamper days and looks forward to meeting you.
