Under current circumstances, and in line with Social Distancing requirements and Industry Guidelines, I have had to make the very difficult decision of ceasing all hands-on, face-to-face Therapies with immediate effect. I will therefore have to cancel and reschedule all booked appointments. All Block Booking and pre-paid sessions will, of course be honoured when things return to normal.

In the meantime, I will be offering Skype/Zoom sessions for Hypnotherapy, EFT and "talk" sessions as well as distant healing with Reiki.

Wishing you all a safe, healthy and positive time in the coming weeks.

Intuitive Holistic Therapy

Douglas Caird

Nourishing touch and holistic stress management for the real world

Douglas Caird

I initially trained as a Reflexologist and have subsequently trained and am fully
qualified in all of the main Approaches I currently work with: Massage, Usui Reiki, Clinical Hypnotherapy and Emotional Freedom Techniques. My work also wholly
embraces and integrates elements of further trainings, workshops, cpd and learning experiences, both professionally and personally.

And, of course, and in many ways, most importantly, how I am and how I work has evolved from the thousands of hours of sharing space and time in one-to-one sessions.

In my experience, learning to be mindful of Oneself – personality; modalities; ego; body; energy; Spirituality; identity; conditioning; history; role; sensuality; sexuality; needs; desires, etc. is a key factor in learning to understand why we develop the (often chronic and lifelong) constrictions which hold us back from blossoming as individuals and which, if ignored, often manifest in physical and emotional imbalances and dis-ease.

The object of my work is to naturally facilitate a state of relaxed awareness where you can feel safe to recognise and address these constrictions.

"The most holistic, all-encompassing, enabling massage I have ever had. Douglas is clearly an expert in this field."
Emma Watson


Essentially, I use Touch, Energy-work and Psychological Therapies, individually or in
combination as a synthesis of my particular skills and experience and in a wholly Person
Centred way – all are, after all, inherently interlinked.

During a session, an ‘exchange’ between two participants is automatically established. The success of any session is therefore greatly influenced by the communication exchanged during that session. Such communication is often silent or expressed in few words.

Whatever your objective for your session, there is always an acceptance and allowing for what is needed and what naturally occurs.  It can be reassuring to remember  that there is no right or wrong, but rather that every session will progress at a pace and level that acknowledges what is needed through your intent for that session.


Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflexes in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body.


Ouida West, in her wonderful book, The Magic of Massage (1984), defines Massage succinctly and aptly as “any touch that is capable of evoking a change in the body”.
In my experience, I couldn’t agree more.

Usui Reiki

Usui Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique, working with “Universal Life Force Energy”, the energy that is flowing abundantly around and within all living things.


Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic use of Hypnosis. Hypnosis is a state of profound relaxation during which you become inwardly focussed, accessing your natural intelligence to overcome problems and limitations.


EFT is a remarkable system for addressing all kinds of emotional issues. It was developed from TFT (Thought Field Therapy), the first discovery in energy psychology.



Prices are for all Approaches whether individually or combined.
Hypnotherapy and EFT first sessions are 90 mins and follow-up sessions may vary in length and I will advise you on this.
I recommend at least 90 mins for a whole body Massage.
My preferred way of working is to look at what might be most appropriate for you at the time of your appointment and to adopt a wholly person/intent-centred approach – if you’re unsure of what you need or want to book, just book time and we’ll go from there.
