Award-Winning Wellness Practitioners At Your Service

I started the Massage or Knot Wellness Clinic, currently based in Newquay, Cornwall, back in 2000 in the beautiful healing city of Bath. I have more than 25 years experience and have worked with clients across the world from all walks of life. During my time as a therapist I have been privileged to treat some famous Hollywood producers, singers, professional athletes and celebrities, as well as being honoured to help and care for people in chronic pain, depression and despair, in homeless shelters and during end of life care. 

The popularity of our Clinic is growing every day and all our Practitioners are handpicked and trained by myself, to ensure we deliver the most exclusive healing and result driven journey for your mind, body and soul. We humans are all the same and we all need love, care and happiness.  

We are looking forward to welcome you at our Wellness Hub soon!

Even if you feel healthy, you may be worried about what could lie ahead. 

The stress we deal with on this planet is in some ways unavoidable, but there is still so much we can do. We can lead a life where we truly know what it’s like to feel healthy. Our bodies, hearts, souls and minds can have more peace and joy. You deserve to feel your best. It’s your right to know how to heal. That’s exactly what I’m here for. To guide and support you in knowing how to heal. I can give you the information, steps and tools to move forward so you can know and understand just how good you can feel. I began my journey in wellbeing and healing back in 1997 as a sports physiotherapist; working with professional athletes, including an Olympic team, in my home country, Slovakia. 

My personal mission is "Changing the world's health one person at a  time". I believe that change begins the moment people become educated about their bodies. I have realised that my purpose in life is helping people. As a result, I have dedicated myself to educating individuals on the complexity of disease and encouraging healthy lifestyle habits. More especially, I now plan to educate all those who want to get well and stay well on the benefits of Medicinal Cannabis, healing mushrooms.  

My passion for how the human body functions, my interest in how to fix or, better still, prevent injury and disease, led me to enhance my knowledge. I am highly skilled in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), reflexology, water therapies, EFT (Emotional Freedom Therapy), Oncology therapy for all ages, nutrition and clinical herbalism after spending many years learning with Masters of healing in China, Thailand, California and Europe. 

For years, decades even, you may have been searching for ways to feel healthier, happier, and lighter. You may have struggled with the lack of energy and strength to get through the long days and trials of life. Or, like many, you may have spent endless hours online and with doctors, counsellors and health practitioners desperately seeking ways for you and your loved ones to feel better. After all of this, you may not be feeling much better at all. In fact you might be more confused and overwhelmed than ever before at the conflicting information at every turn. 

That is why you should give me a call and book yourself a treatment and start your wellbeing journey with my expert guidance.
