My name is Ricardina,
I am a massage therapist, skincare specialist, and industry educator with a special interest in health and wellness. My career is the product of 37 years of research, a passion for skincare, massage therapy and nutrition.
I am a qualified Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist with a Diploma from the prestigious London School of Sports Massage. I am a member of the Institute of Sports and Remedial Massage and I also have a master’s degree in Sports Science and Nutrition. I am also a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists since 2011.
I have built up an extensive clientele as a Therapist/ Spa Manager in central London for the last 16 years, ranging from professional sportsmen and women, musicians, business people, administrators, celebrities, full-time mums, and people recovering from serious operations, accidents, and injuries.
I specialise in:
- Swedish Massage
- Deep Tissue / Remedial Sports Massage
- MLD manual lymphatic drainage
- Indian Head Massage
- Pregnancy massage
- Postpartum massage
- Facial Rejuvenation Massage
- Facial Treatments
- Advanced Skin Treatments
When I am not in the treatment room I enjoy swimming, reading, yoga, meditation, arts and crafts, and visiting museums and galleries. Although, if given time you’ll find me exploring/walking in the countryside. I am originally from Cascais a seaside town just outside Lisbon, Portugal.
Treating everyone as an individual with enthusiasm and care has become my mission, allowing me to gain trust and maintain a loyal client base. My clients called me “the muscle whisperer”.
I love to make people smile and make a difference in their lives.
