About the team

Lily Sequoia

Lily has been supporting people with their health and wellbeing for almost 20 years including time spent treating the Wasps RFC. A session will draw upon a variety of massage techniques to address stress, rehabilitation, injury prevention, and postural correction.

Combining all her previous experience of working alongside osteopaths being a personal trainer, triathlete and marathon runner together with her current longstanding yoga practice Lily will create a bespoke treatment for each client’s individual needs.

With extensive training and a qualified doula Lily has a passion for all topics surrounding pregnancy & birth.  Specialising in pregnancy, deep tissue, and sports or remedial treatment sessions.

Outside of the treatment room, I can be found supporting pregnant women and new mothers as a Doula, running a Solar-powered cinema and workshop space, making films about creating an ecological future, or just running around with my 4-year old!

Anna Wright

Specialises in sports & remedial sessions.

A treatment with Anna will include assessment, massage and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders from sports or non-sports injuries which include aftercare advice.

“My aim is to relieve tightness and pain restoring better movement throughout the whole body. I do this with soft tissue release along with stretching and realigning the muscles and fascia. I assess posture and breathing patterns as very often soft tissue injury’s can arise from incorrect posture or poor breathing patterns, I will give you stretches and exercises to improve upon this.”

When I am not busy being a mum I like to practice yoga, pilates, and body conditioning. I am very interested in nutrition, I spend lots of my time in the kitchen chopping and slicing, listening to Radio 4 or Ted Talks doing my best to improve my well-being.

Naomi Pickles

Highly proficient in sports remedial and holistic sessions.

Naomi’s enthusiasm for anatomy combined with her passion for science and movement has led her to the massage world. Every single treatment is guided by the theory of anatomy and bio-mechanics, drawing upon a variety of advanced soft tissue, myofascial and stretching techniques. She often works in collaboration with physiotherapists to provide ongoing support for physical wellbeing and recovery from injury. Treatments include a consultation and posture assessment to gain a better understanding of the person and their needs.

Since qualifying Naomi has fully absorbed herself in the wellbeing, spa industry; giving the opportunity to integrate clinical theory with holistic practise, emotional wellbeing and ultimate relaxation. As a keen circus enthusiast, rock climber and level 1 box fit instructor; massage and aftercare has played an important part of her self-practice.

Naomi is always looking for ways to integrate the latest sports science theory into her own training and improve functional movement for extreme sports but also enjoys sharing good food with friends, treatments herself, attending courses and skill shares. Connecting to people and forming a community is at the heart of all her work.

Jamie Buchman Maguire

With years of experience under her belt, Jamie is able to bring together a huge amount of knowledge to execute incredibly restorative & beneficial sessions for every client from any walk of life. Office workers, athletes or pregnant Jamie works effectively & encourages lasting results by lying importance to identify the root of the problem, rather than just treat the presenting symptoms.

After an initial consultation and postural assessment, a treatment will combine various techniques including trigger point therapy, soft tissue release, myofascial release, and muscle energy techniques.  After care advice will be given for further improvements to be made once you leave the treatment space.
