We have known Marion for many years during which time I have enjoyed a range of her therapies and benefited from her healing hands which was particularly helpful following gruelling chemotherapy. My husband is also a devotee of Marion’s wonderful Aromatherapy massage and is convinced it helped enormously when he was giving up smoking. Having been a heavy smoker for over three decades he has now been cigarette free for 12 years. My teenage son, feeling the stress and strains of exams, also enjoys these relaxing sessions.
