Hi my name is Angela Norton
I have been a massage therapist since 2010. Working from home, originally from Enfield, I moved home and business to Epping in 2014
As a mother, receptionist, and 16 years as a nurse, I have always been caring for people in one form or another, and in that time my interest in complimentary therapies has grown.
Having a medical background means I have at least a basic knowledge of most medical conditions and experience of working with all kinds of people. Many years ago I did an introduction to counselling too, so I like to think I can listen to people in a non judgmental and open minded way, which I find an asset when talking to clients and putting them at ease.
I find the workings of the human mind and body fascinating and just as interesting is the way we try to help it when it isn’t working properly. Conventional medical intervention of course has it’s place, and you should always discuss any problems with your GP first, but sometimes in the search for healing we have to look at the more traditional and natural approaches too.
The interest in complimentary and hands on therapies are growing day by day, as we realize that there is so much more to the human body, mind and spirit than we understand and that the holistic (whole body) approach is essential to good health.
In my treatments I en-devour to make each person feel truly cared for as an individual, looking at their specific needs and the best way to tailor the treatment to give them the best possible outcome, for body mind and spirit. Comfort is up-most on my agenda, with a warm inviting room and lots of support with cushions and bolsters if needed. Where ever possible I will offer advice on things clients can do to help themselves so they are empowered to live free of pain and discomfort.

"Angela gives a complete treatment – professional, compassionate and intuitive. She has the most amazing hands that knead away tension, aches and pains and leaves you feeling wonderful."
"I suffer from painful trapezius muscles due to constantly carrying heavy rucksacks and stress. Every time I have a massage with Angela, I literally feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. Whatever technique Angela uses, gentle massage or deep tissue massage, it always feels deeply caring.
I have recommended Angela to many of my friends and will carry on doing so."
Angela, thank you for your help.
"You did an amazing job at making me feel comfortable and relaxed during the session and I enjoyed the beautiful music played softly helping create a serene and calm atmosphere. The benefits of my massage soothed my muscles and joints and especially eased the aches and knots I had in my neck and back. You have a great awareness of the body and really understand to sooth each different part. I left feeling relaxed yet rejuvenated and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. You have a very professional manner and attitude.......thorough, sensitive and very effective. I will definitely be recommending your services to family and friends."
"Angela has a natural talent and touch - she is able to sense what amount of pressure is suitable. I have suffered from back pain and after each session with Angela felt relief and pain-free. I would highly recommend her for her total 'body massage' she as goes one step further than the usual salon massage because she concentrates on joints as well as the muscles."
"I have always been nervous about the thought of having a massage. I never thought I actually would have one. But circumstances in my health meant I needed to take action so I contacted Angela after a recommendation from a friend. I need not have worried! Angela immediately put me at ease with her wonderfully calm, warm and caring personality. She did a thorough assessment of my ailments and then set about working her way around every muscle in my body, releasing aches and freeing me of pain and tension. I was hooked from my first session and now have a massage every month as the benefits are so enormous. I work at a computer all day, every day - having Angela there to release all the tension in my back is a joy. My body functions better which means I function better. I have recommended her to many friends who have all come back singing her praises. She is simply the best. She is a master at her craft and I highly recommend her."
"Angela is fabulous & has healing hands. From the moment you enter her calm and serene treatment room you start to feel relaxed and comfortable. She is able to put you at ease and help you to release all that tension and stress that you came in with. I would recommend Angela to anyone...she will make you feel great!"
"I arrived for my massage extremely stressed and full of tension. Shortly after getting comfortable on Angela's massage couch, with the tranquility of her treatment room engulfing my senses, I felt my tensions begin to ease. After a few minutes of firm and connective massage my body and my mind openly relaxed.
By the end of my treatment I was reinvigorated and restored to my previous energy levels.
Thank you for your continued service of excellence Angela."
"I went to see Angela stressed, tired and in “knots”. Her welcome and friendly approach instantly put me at ease along with her lovely warm and tranquil room. Having previously had massages in salons, there was no comparison. No loud doors banging or young girls asking if you had seen the last episode of Corrie!
The time went far too fast and I was reluctant to leave. Angela, always calm and unhurried allows you time to “come back to earth”, no hurrying you out the door because the next client has arrived.
Everybody deserves an Angela in their life."
"A full body massage with Angela is an exquisitely relaxing experience - after 90 minutes I don't think that I had a knotted muscle left and I felt as light as a feather. I cannot recommend it highly enough."
"I was lucky enough to have several massages during my pregnancy with Angela, from about 6 months right up until 9 months. I had had the occasional massage in my previous pregnancies, but always felt that they were slightly less good than usual, due to the inconvenience of my bump. In contrast the massages with Angela seemed to be totally centred on the fact that I was pregnant, and thus tailored to my needs. In fact, the bump didn't get in the way, as she took care to turn me from side to side, so that I got a really thorough, relaxing massage. I did experience some back pain prior to the course of massages, but this disappeared after the first massage, never to return. The massages were extremely relaxing and I felt very comfortable at all times, both personally and physically. I think I always fell asleep towards the end, and wished they would last just a little bit longer! The feeling of relaxation stayed with me, and I found that I would sleep better for a few nights after the treatment. If I were to have another pregnancy, (which I'm not planning to!) I would definitely book a course with Angela, and would highly recommend her treatments to any other ladies who are expecting."
