Shani Meadows

In a society that values busyness, Shani creates an environment where you are encouraged to slow down, nurture yourself and in turn, switch on the healing processes of your own body.  As an elite sportswoman herself in her childhood and teenage years, Shani understands and values the importance of remedial massage therapy.  Her experience and passion as a skilled remedial therapist, Shani places emphasis on providing a space where focus can be given on an individual basis.

Everyone experiences massage differently, so it is important to Shani to gain an understanding of how a client uses their body on a day to day basis so she can offer the most effective massage with a positive impact on both a physical and emotional level.
