Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect?

At your first visit I will spend time with you doing an in-depth consultation which focuses on you, your health, your environment and lifestyle. Questions about your family’s health history, your health, what you do to relax and exercise, what you eat, what your work/daytime routine is are some of the questions I ask. This consultation can take up to 30 minutes and is free. So you can enjoy your massage for the full length of your treatment time.

Why should I return?

We all feel differently at different times. This is why the in-depth consultation at the initial meeting is so important. It will allow me to follow up with you taking into consideration your own personal circumstances on each return visit. This in turn will enable me to give you a better, more relevant treatment.

What’s the difference between a Salon Massage and an Holistic Massage?

Like a Salon I will find out about your health and lifestyle details, but where my holistic massage differs is that I will spend time during a consultation getting to know about YOU. I will of course find out about health and physical issues, but I will take the time in getting to know what affects you; good, bad and ugly. This gives me the opportunity to give you a massage based on your physical and if relevant emotional needs. It is well known that massage is extremely beneficial for stress and tension.

Here are testimonials from regular and one off clients who have benefited from my Holistic Massage or Mindfulness courses

“6 months ago, I was at rock bottom. I felt very battered by all the stresses in my life and I couldn’t seem to get on top of everything. I was feeling physically unwell as well as mentally overwhelmed.  I made the decision to invest in myself. I made some dietary changes but more importantly, I found Trisha. She listened quietly and suggested which aromatherapy oils might be helpful. Her massage technique for aromatherapy is very gentle, but enormously beneficial. I felt all the overwhelm, sadness and frustrations literally melt away. I have continued to see her every month and the results have been truly amazing. I still have plenty of stress in my life unfortunately, but I can now cope with it. I feel grounded and centred and so much better in myself.I heartily recommend her.”
Lisa from Egham

“I have had many massages in many spas and beauty salons – some very prestigious – but none as good as with Trisha at A Calm You. Massage is her passion. Undiluted by the myriad of beauty treatments available in a generic setting, this is a specialist, personalised treatment from a professional who cares about her clients, their wellbeing and their massage experience. I won’t be going elsewhere. It would always be a disappointment! Thanks Trisha for helping me look after myself and for the oasis of calm you provide in my 21st century world!”
Julia from Egham, Surrey

“Having put up with an annoying and increasingly more painful ache in my shoulder and neck every time I turned my head I had decided it was something age related and I would have to live with it.
Then Trisha was recommended to me
On the very first visit Trisha found the spot and worked on it for the next 3 or 4 visits and with each visit I had increasingly longer periods of relief until a few weeks ago the realisation came to me that I was no longer experiencing any pain.
It’s not only the physical stresses and strains that Trisha relieves she is also a very good listener offering calming and stress relieving suggestions to help cope with the everyday problems that modern day life throws at us all.”
Doreen from Surrey

“Sometimes we need a little extra something in our lives that we can’t actually identify and this is how I was feeling when I heard about Trisha and ‘A calm you’.
Trisha is a very professional, gifted and caring lady who puts me completely at ease. She has great empathy and listens, understands and tailors a massage to suit my needs each time I visit.
In tranquil surroundings, her magic hands soothe and relax both body and mind giving me restful sleep and creating a sense of wellbeing which lasts several days.
I always look forward to my visits knowing that each one will provide me with that ‘something’ I needed, leaving me revitalised.
Thank you Trisha, I have no hesitation in recommending you and the treatments you provide.”
Jackie from Surrey

“I’d highly recommend a massage with Trisha. She takes time to understand what is going on around you which results in a more intuitive massage. She is very professional and listens to what you ask for. Her location is very convenient to Egham station and town. I’m very happy I found her- my shoulders are in much better shape than before which keeps me out of pain and discomfort! Thank you Trisha!!”
Alyssa from Bucks

“I have been a very happy client of Trisha’s now for just under a year after being introduced at a wellness event. From the very start Trisha put me at complete ease about what to expect; she has excellent listening skills and creates a very safe and calm space. Whereas in the past I had received adhoc massages as a treat, Trisha and her knowledge has made me see that it is so much more than that. She is so skillful at assessing and treating my current physical challenges, using a wide variety of techniques to loosen muscles and improve function. I recently completed a 30 mile walk and with seeing Trisha a few days afterwards I credit her for helping my recovery process to enable me to be back up and walking with no pain within 5 days.
I offer my highest recommendation and recommend you book a session and see for yourself.
Hannah H from Berkshire

“If you are feeling in need of an energy boost or a complete relaxation session I would totally recommend A Calm You. I regularly have back neck and shoulder massage focussing on my knotted shoulders. I came to Trisha with another symptom Bicep tendinitis; hamstring strain, which Trisha has been focusing on to help relieve the pain, release off any tension and advise the after treatment after exercise to help with inflammation of the muscle. Thank you Trisha.”
Amanda G from Berkshire

“I have been having an Indian Head Massage with Trisha every 6 weeks for some time now. I arrive feeling stressed and harrassed and I leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated every single time.”
Susan B from Englefield Green

“I would highly recommend Trisha, I have a regular monthly massage and I feel it has really improved my well being. I have been to a lot of Spas and I can honestly say this is the best massage I have ever had. You can tell Trisha exactly what you would like to have e.g.more time on back and less time on arms etc – a massage to suit you and not the therapist :)”
Ellie H

“Lovely surroundings, the world disappears. Professional, friendly with attention to detail that makes you feel like a queen as the treatment is customised to you personally.Trisha does not rush you at the end of the treatment either which prolongs the enjoyment.”
Helen B from Virginia Water

“Trisha is a lovely and caring lady, who made me feel at ease in no time. She is a gifted healer: while intuitively massaging the areas of your body that need more attention, she reaches that place in your soul where emotional and mental blockages sit and releases them. Trisha’s massages are true holistic journeys, from which body, mind and soul return as one.
I can recommend Trisha any day without hesitation!”
Lara B from Egham

“I enjoyed a lovely soothing massage with Trisha today. Her work environment is very relaxing and conducive to really switching off and unwinding. I told Trisha that I don’t enjoy a heavy massage, and she listened and used a lighter pressure. She used a bolster to prop my hips as I have a lower back problem, and for the first time during a massage I was pain free when I turned from my front onto my back. I’ll be back next month for another massage. Thank you Trisha.”
Siobhan from Egham

“I would just like to thank you for the treatments I received from you.  The whole course was very successful for me. I can really feel the difference and the standard of service towards me was excellent.  You are a true professional and very understanding which made me feel totally relaxed from the beginning.  I would highly recommend you and shall continue to use you.”
Sandra from Egham

“I felt very comfortable with you and actually had one of the best massage experiences on Saturday. A huge thank you for such a fab experience, I would highly recommend you as you do treat the whole person, and this is pretty rare.”
Lizzie B from Egham

“I woke up this morning and had no stiffness in my shoulders and neck – and suddenly realised that I usually do, to an alarming extent.  I was amazed at how much better I felt and will definitely be back for more.  All thanks to an Indian Head Massage from Trisha”
Jo H from Englefield Green

“As a massage therapist myself, it has been difficult to find a holistic therapist that meets with my expectations. Trisha has consistently accurately identified what I most need, and every time I leave her care, I am floating with an exceptional state of calm and balance that remains with me for an extended period. I can particularly recommend her full body, back, neck and shoulders, aromatherapy and Indian head massages.” Carol from Surrey
