Penelope Goodare, Dip. ITEC, Dip. ICM.
I have been working as a massage therapist since 2005, having previously been both a musician and a book editor. I had been interested in healing work for a long time, partly inspired by my 29 years' practice of meditation, and this led me also to train in 2009 as a Reiki healer, working more directly with spiritual energy. In 2011, I also trained as an aromatherapist, to enhance my massage treatments.
Welcome to Massage, Aromatherapy & Reiki in Hawkhurst
I aim to create a warm, safe and non-clinical atmosphere in my therapy room, to help you relax and feel at home.
I offer relaxing full body massage, Indian head massage, Thai foot massage, aromatherapy massage and Reiki healing. If you are unable to come to my home, I can visit you. I can also come to your workplace for group bookings. If there is no room for a couch, head and foot massage and Reiki can all be carried out in a chair.
All of these can be a pleasurable, relaxing treat, as well as having a powerful healing effect. There can be relief from all kinds of aches and pains, digestive disorders, and many stress-related problems including anxiety, depression, lack of energy, headaches and insomnia. Above all I hope to leave you with an overall feeling of well-being.

"I first went to Penelope hoping for relief from back pain, and it certainly helped with that. What surprised me was the effect on my chronic digestive problems, caused by congenital Crohn’s Disease. I’d been severely underweight all my life, despite endless surgery and drug treatment, but since having regular massages my digestion has improved dramatically and I’ve actually reached my ideal weight. It’s also helped with my arthritis (a side effect of the drugs), and I sleep better and have a lot more energy."

"With the stresses of working and looking after children, and with a husband working all hours, I was getting through a bottle of wine every night, and was sleeping badly. Life can still be stressful but I’m much more relaxed, I hardly drink at all, and I sleep really well. My worries just seem to melt away under Penelope’s hands!"
