Holistic therapies tailored to YOUR individual need. Therapies for the whole family - from reflexology to baby massage - there's something for everyone
Welcome to "A Positive Touch" I'm Tracey, and I am a complimentary therapist and registered nurse, with a background in childcare and development. I am fully qualified and insured in various types of reflexology, Reiki, Hopi ear candles, Indian head massage, and baby massage. (Each of these therapies are described under the therapies menu above).
I believe in taking responsibility for our own health, by eating well and moving more, by keeping stress to a minimum and enjoying life as much as possible while keeping true to ourselves. We are all individuals and enjoy life in different ways, but the basic building blocks to good health are the same. Prevention is better than cure.
I will listen to your needs, what you hope to gain from your therapy session and together we will make a plan to reach your goal. whether it is stress reduction, alleviating anxiety, regulating your period, managing menopausal symptoms, helping with symptoms of PMS, sleep hygiene, managing pain, managing migraine or irritable bowel syndrome, sinus problems, build up of ear wax , teething, colic the possibilities are endless. Reflexology and the other therapies I offer are very safe, and have been found to be effective for many.

I work from my home treatment room on the outskirts of Dundee, easily reached from areas in and around Dundee, Angus and Perth. Home visits are a possibility. (an additional charge may be incurred for home visits) .
Complementary therapies can run alongside conventional medicine; but should not be used in place of. You should always seek advice from your GP if you are concerned about your symptoms.
I have been interested in complementary/holistic therapies since I was at school. However being born in the 1970's and brought up on the East coast of Scotland - at that time there was not much call for complimentary or holistic therapists, and I was advised "it was not an option for a career". When I left school I went on to train as a nurse. I became a registered nurse in 1994, working in hospitals in both Perth and Dundee. I met and married my husband in 1995, which led to my first son making his arrival in 1997, and my second in 2000. It was in 2000 I decided to change direction and went on to gain a qualification in Child development and Education, going on to work as part of a government initiative through "Sure start" and the local authority in Perth and Kinross - Working with the children of substance misusing parents, and the parents themselves. (it was a fantastic opportunity, and I feel very privileged to have had such a role) It was in this post I was very lucky to be given the opportunity to train as a baby massage teacher, teaching parents how to massage their baby safely, and how to promote confidence in the parents to be able do this, how to pick up on their baby's early communication - building lasting bonds and a life long skill. Baby massage was delivered to both groups, and on a one to one basis. At this time I also trained in "feel good therapies" and worked closely with the health board and expectant very young mothers and new young mothers offering them "feel good therapies" as a way of relaxation, and an introduction into the services there to support them if and when required.
At this point I knew I wanted to explore complimentary therapies further, and so went on to become a fully qualified reflexologist and since then have added to my "toolkit" with various other therapies.
I currently work as a practice nurse 3 days a week and work as a therapist the remainder of the week.
I believe passionately in the benefit that comes from looking after our own body and mind, and taking responsibility for our own health. What we do for "me time" to reduce stress, how we manage minor ailments, the food we nourish our body with, right down to what we use on our skin and in our hair. Your body is amazing - look after it with love and care.
