A registered nurse has set up a business near Spalding which aims to provide well-being for the mind, body and soul.
Hilary Peach, 55, of Spalding, runs Cloud Walkers from the Knight Street Salon, in Knight Street, Pinchbeck.
She offers massage therapy (pre-blended aromatherapy, Indian head, and Swedish), foot healthcare, but also a specialist form of massage known as manual lymphatic drainage (MLD).
MLD targets the body’s lymphatic system.
“The lymphatic system is like a secondary circulatory system and quite often it gets clogged up,” Hilary said. “It takes away toxins and waste products from the cells and delivers nutrients to the cells.”
MLD stimulates the lymphatic system into action to the body’s benefit, Hilary explained.
She said MLD is felt to be of benefit to people recovering from surgery, with it helping to heal wounds and clear swellings.
Hilary is a bank nurse at Peterborough City Hospital and said she was inspired to launch the business due to the physical strain of the job.
Her training in MLD complements qualifications in massage therapy and in foothealth care.
You can find Cloud Walkers at 77 Knight Street, on Facebook (search for Cloud Walking with Hilary), or on 07879 654410.
