Many visitors to 'Les Tilleuls' are content to simply while away the hours in this peaceful and relaxing setting. But there are many other ways to pass the time in this fascinating region of France.
Therapeutic massage, reflexology, reiki
Indulge yourself with a spoiling massage treatment from the soothing hands of Julie Mosley, who trained in Therapeutic Massage at the London College of Massage and has more than 16 years’ experience as a therapist. After qualifying in 1992 Julie worked in Australia as a Complementary Health Therapist and completed her Reiki First Degree in Melbourne. This was followed by some time in Thailand studying Traditional Thai Massage at Wat Pho School of Traditional Medicine in Bangkok, before returning to set up a Complementary Health business in Glasgow. Julie's Reiki Second Degree was taken in Scotland and she went on to work as a tutor with the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine. She studied Reflexology at Napier University, Edinburgh from 1999 - 2001 and has been living in France working as a Complementary Health Therapist since 2002. Following a personal consultation, Julie tailors each treatment to a client’s individual needs and preferences.
