Hello - I'm Nicky.
For those of you who haven't met me before, let me introduce myself...
I'm Nicky Read and am the founder of The Camomile Rooms and Nurture 4 Life.
I love working with people at all stages of life and at all levels of health and wellbeing, from stress and anxiety relief to easing physical discomfort and everything in-between!
As the founder of Nurture 4 Life, I also specialise in fertility, pregnancy and postnatal treatments and full details of how I can help you on your path to parenthood and beyond can be found here.
Why I do what I do...
I know what its like to not feel well and to realise you need to focus on your health and wellbeing to achieve what you want to. This is where my personal interest in complementary therapies began all those years ago - I've benefitted from many different treatments and continue to benefit from them today.
I know the importance of positive health - both gaining and maintaining it - and love being able to help others maintain their own wellbeing through the use of complementary treatments.
And I really like working with you - exploring different avenues that could help you, either through the treatments I provide or with my trusted and experienced colleagues.
The old saying is true: "love what you do and you'll never work a day in your life"! This is very much a vocation for me and never just a job.
A proven track record...
My training and experience are in a wide range of complementary therapies which I use to promote and maintain positive health and wellbeing, and I specialise in reflexology. I've been trained by world-renowned and award-winning experts in the field of reflexology.
I spent many years working in hospice and palliative care and my 8 years as a volunteer therapist at the wonderful Sue Ryder Hospice in Cheltenham was a very special experience and one that has certainly shaped me in the most positive of ways as a practitioner.
My approach is friendly, supportive, non-judgemental and completely focused on helping you to achieve what you wish from your treatments.
Personally, I am extremely proud of having been awarded Best Practitioner 2017 alongside our award for Gloucestershire's Best Complementary Therapy Centre. This is in addition to being nominated for the Cheltenham Maman Awards 2017 and a finalist for the Cheltenham Awards 2018 .
I look forward to walking alongside you on your journey to better health, less stress and greater enjoyment of life.
