Nice to meet you.

About me

Welcome to my practice.

My name is André Duarte and I am an experienced complementary therapist offering holistic Swedish, aromatherapy and deep tissue massage to my clients in the areas of Wandsworth and Clapham Junction. I trained at the world renowned CityLit and the Brighton School of Massage.

 

My background is in Psychology and worked in the mental health field for about 10 years before deciding to focus on holistic therapies. I am passionate about what I do and have a deep interest in all aspects of health – physical, mental and emotional. My aim is to leave each client with a profound sense of wellbeing having experienced the healing power of touch.

I provide services tailored to each client’s needs whether you come for a single session or a series of treatments. My therapeutic clinic offers you a place to relax, feel good and to heal – a place where you can focus on your own needs, slow down and let go of the burdens of this busy world. I welcome clients from all backgrounds and can support you whether you have specific aches, pains or medical problems or whether you simply want to relax and de-stress.

I am a registered member of the Complementary Therapists Association and fully insured with Holistic Insurance Services.

My ethos is to offer highly personalised care for each client that also makes a minimal impact on our natural environment. My background in psychology supports me in providing non-judgmental, client focused services. All of the products I use in our work are chemical free, organic, non-GMO and environmentally friendly. By working in this way, I hope to contribute to a healthier, happier and more mindful world.

Testimonials

"I instantly felt comfortable with André. His interest and friendliness was greatly appreciated, as was his sensitivity to my body issues.  The atmosphere was relaxing, warm, calming and exactly what you’d hope for when going for a massage. I just wish it lasted longer!"

Services

Holistic Swedish massage

Swedish massage was adapted from Asian massage techniques to improve circulation, soothe muscles and make you feel more relaxed. I will use softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of the body, and stronger strokes where there is thicker muscle coverage. This adjustment of pressure makes it an ideal massage for relaxation but can also be used to energise the body. Complimentary herbal tea and snack at the end of the treatment. To find out more about what to expect before, during and after the massage treatment please visit this page. More information can be found in the frequently asked questions page.

Available times:

- 30 minutes (allow a 45 minute total appointment time), £30

- 45 minutes (allow a 1 hour total appointment time), £45

- 60 minutes (allow a 75 minute total appointment time), £60

- 90 minutes (allow a 105 minute total appointment time), £80

 

*Please note you can choose to have a shower at the end of this treatment at my Wandsworth therapy room. Free towels, shower gel and shampoo are provided. **Complimentary herbal tea and snack with every treatment.

Aromatherapy massage 

Aromatherapy means using essential oils with the purpose of unifying physiological, psychological and spiritual processes to enhance an individual’s innate healing process. This is a deeply relaxing type of massage that will stimulate your sense of smell. The strokes are adapted from Swedish massage to promote and facilitate the absorption of the essential oils into the skin. I will make a massage blend just for you and select essential oils with properties that address your current complaints. Complimentary herbal tea and snack at the end of the treatment.

Deep tissue massage

Deep tissue massage is a technique that concentrates on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. The purpose of this technique is to lengthen, relax and release strain patterns within the muscles so that the posture of the body can realign itself. I will use a combination of slow strokes and deep pressure by fingers, hands and forearms on tight places either following or going across the fibres of the muscles. As opposed to other massage techniques, deep tissue massage concentrates on the certain parts of the body that are strained; therefore, it is not unusual to have a session that concentrates fully on the lower back, neck or shoulder. More information can be found in the frequently asked questions page.

‘CBD oil add on’: + £15

 

You can choose to have our ‘CBD oil add on’ to any of the above packages for an extra £15. You will have CBD balm and oil massaged into specific areas of soreness and tension, which will alleviate pain and promote muscle recovery. You choose which areas you’d like me to focus on. Please note you cannot have this massage if you are allergic to CBD/cannabinoid products. For this treatment, I use Gaia Guru’s products. They test their products carefully for THC content in line with UK and EU legislation. Their reports show THC levels do not exceed the set limit of 0.2%. 

 

Gaia Guru also closely monitor the CBD content of their products for transparency. They’re proud to be able to claim that there is 1% CBD per 100ml bottle of massage oil, which translates to 1000mg total CBD. In their balms, CBD content is 1.6% for every 60ml, which translates to 1000mg total CBD. 

 

All lab tests can be found on the Gaia Guru website.
