Have had a few massages with Adelia now - my favourite in Norwich. She is super intuitive and works along the mind-body-spirit nexus. It's really deep work, so much appreciated!

Adelia is super professional. Listens to your specific problems / requirements and is very knowledgeable about holistic health in general. The work space is very calming and peaceful. I would highly recommend a visit there.

E MooreAdelia is a gem of a massage therapist, and a gem of a person. I have regular sessions, and can’t sing her praises highly enough. I’m thankful to have found her.If you take a good look, the person that she is shines through her website. She’s wonderfully skilled in a whole range of massage therapies and lovely to be with. Her hands are just wonderful! - a rare combination of strength and sensitivity – and she seems to know just what’s needed.I’ve had a range of different treatments – soothing, deep massage, lymph drainage, short sessions and longer sessions – and l always leave feeling nourished and cared for, carrying the benefits of her massage sessions out into my life. She’s helped me with physical pains, and at times when l’ve been under lots of emotional stress, and I also learn a lot from her breadth and depth of knowledge about physiological and psychological aspects of health.In short, l value her hugely, and always look forward to my next session.

A massage session with Adelia is a special treat as she has the intuitive knowledge and ability to go far deeper than just muscle and tissue. Within minutes of lying on her couch she will have found every knot you never knew you had in your body!Highly recommended.

I have had several massages with Adelia, she is always professional, the room is clean, the atmosphere is relaxing and the massage is always very good. She is very experienced and knowledgeable about the body. I have had lots of massages over the years and she is one of the best.

Was pleased to be able to visit Adelia's lovely space in the centre of town. Restful, calming environment to let go of my tension and enable Adelia to unknot all the built up work tension. Chatted a bit and came away with some excellent reading recommendations too! Thank you ☺️

I had booked a massage with Adelia as a result of chronic stiffness, aching and pain in my neck and shoulders. I needed some help. Over the course of several weeks, I have noticed increasing benefits from the careful and attentive treatment that Adelia provides, and now regard these regular sessions as essential for my physical (and general) wellbeing. The sensation of massage itself combined with a focus on the rythm of breathing brings about a calmness of mind, a deep state of relaxation and really becomes a form of meditation. Highly recommended.

A friend recommended Adelia as she had successfully removed lumps and bumps in his hand/palm similar to some I had. I have only had 2 sessions so far but but already my hand is improved. I have also taken the opportunity to have full body massages at the same time and Adelia is excellent at zeroing in on problem areas. Also lovely to chat with. Highly recommended

I enjoyed a very intuitive massage and gentle attentive conversation in the meanwhile. Her kindness and attention felt nurturing deep in the bones. I trust to see her again and recommend her work when I can 🙂

I have had two fabulous massages with Adelia. She used her extensive experience and knowledge as well as her own intuition to hone in on the areas that needed attention, which even I wasn't aware of! She is totally professional, caring and thorough, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her as a massage therapist.

Adelia is just fantastic. I hadn't much experience or trust in massage therapy before and because she is very experienced, confident and intuitive I am now a regular. Recommended. Neil
