RiverLife Retreat

RiverLife Retreat at Forest Life, Moulin Bleu, France

RiverLife Therapy invites you to join us at our very own retreat. It will be a refreshing week of relaxation and revitalisation down by the river at Le Moulin Bleu, Nouvelle Aquitane, France.

As a nation we all forget to slow down and relax in our busy lives and consequently spending time on ourselves often takes second place.

This wonderful week-long retreat will give you the opportunity to reconnect with yourselves and re-evaluate important factors in your lives. Through massage therapy treatments by Hannah (ITEC/BTEC qualified massage therapist) along with morning yoga sessions to start the day this will be a perfect setting to enable you to relax fully and immerse yourself into the woodland environment.


We will also work through some guided meditation/relaxation along with woodland workouts at the other end of the spectrum for those who are interested in some additional fat burning. As part of the schedule there will be lots of free time for you to take yourself away to a quiet corner and relax in your own space for quiet reflection. Your free time could be used to explore the local area or book one of Forest Life’s nature-based add on’s such as a Guided Walks, Nature Observation, Bushcraft and Tracking or Archery.


We have a new therapeutic spa to help you prepare for your massage treatments or just enjoy the powerful jets and heated water on tired aching muscles.

Use of the Spa is included in this retreat but it must be booked in hourly slots on arrival.

This is the ideal retreat for people looking to relax in a remote and beautiful part of the quintessential French countryside. It is also an opportunity to mirror the French cultural approach to social interactions and bon ami over a plate of cheese and a glass of red wine.

Please send us an email to request information about this year’s retreats and courses.



Have a look and see what others think!

If you have recently had a treatment, please let me know what you thought so you can help others decide. Thank you for all the lovely comments so far.

A luxury salon experience in your own home. From the massage bed with a heated blanket when required to the fluffy towels and relaxing music. An excellent massage which Hannah is happy to adapt to your requirements. Can’t wait for my next massage.

Hannah is so friendly and puts you immediately at ease in her company. She is professional and offered a huge variety of treatments to a very high standard. Thank you Hannah!

Hannah is amazing! She is very caring. I have had a number of treatments now and I have to say so far my favourite is the Hot Stones Massage. All treatments are performed with great professionalism and Hannah is adaptable to any personal conditions you may have. Can’t wait to have a coffee and chat again xxx

The most amazing full body massage and facial.. Hannah is the dream leader in her field and I have already booked my next.. Thanks Hannah xxx

Tracey Glendenning October 2016

We booked with RiverLife Massage. Tracey had a full massage and facial and booked me one too. Hannah uses Neal’s yard products, brings chill out music, room diffuser, professional massage couch and big fluffy towels.  She brought the lot, better than some spas I have been to. Oh and hot bamboo, who’d have thunk it?? If you want to spoil yourself or the other half or girls if you want a girly pamper evening book her, I would highly recommend it. Feeling well chilled now!

Had my first hot stones treatment yesterday and although a little sore today I would highly recommend it. Hannah has been working on my back and shoulders for a few months now and I only wish after being in pain for quite a few years now I wish I had found her sooner the difference really is quite amazing

Thanks again for my massage – I really enjoyed it. Just thought I’d let you know that my shoulders feel about 2 inches lower down instead of hunched up around my ears – and my neck feels much more mobile – which is great! Karen x

About Me


From Corporate Caterpillar to Holistic Butterfly
My Belief’s

I believe that holistic therapies work! Having been brought up by loving parents who believe in the benefits of massage, yoga, aromatherapy, crystal healing and magnet therapy it was no surprise that I was inspired to nurture a healing business like RiverLife Therapy. I also believe that if we make the choice to be successful and when we immerse ourselves within circles of supportive caring individuals everyone can achieve their own personal objectives whatever they may be. It is no secret that people who love what they see in the mirror portray a more positive reflection to those they love and admire, loyal friends,

followers and clients. A positive mental attitude helps maintain a healthy conscience. It is this attitude I wish to portray to you, perhaps you understand this already or want to explore a more holistic approach to compliment your own lifestyle and Perhaps you see some of my qualities and values in yourself and think that we could work together. If I was to describe my values as loyal, non-judgemental, discrete, resilient and honest would you mentally tick them off as your own?

    • If like me you work hard and play hard then you probably have earned and deserve some quality ‘you’ treatments.

My Journey from Corporate Caterpillar to Holistic Butterfly.  

Where did it all change? Samvega!

A samvega can be described as a ‘Ah hah’ moment or the point at which you realise that you are banging your head against a brick wall and that the choices you are making do not align with the universal plan that we all have mapped out for us. I realised this ‘Ah hah’ after I had  been made redundant for the second time from the corporate/charity sector. So with my experiences in Business Development Management and personal interests in yoga and holistic therapies I had a tool kit that I could develop into the best business model ever. A massage therapy business that could heal people, help people and educate people on their own health and wellbeing. Sounds brilliant right?

This is what I did!

Firstly, I had a good hard look in the mirror! I found that confidence, minus anger, plus supportive loving husband equalled a chance to reinvent myself. I brushed out the cobwebs and retrained at the London School of Massage as a Holistic Massage Therapist at ITEC Level 3 and then made it better with a BTEC Level 5 Deep Tissue qualification. I joined the Federation of Holistic Therapists to ensure my clients could see I was part of something serious and I was committed to an organisation that was made up of like-minded people who were always learning. It is also important to mention my experience of a lifetime! I spent 6 weeks at Anand Prakash Ashram in India under the watchful eye of a master yogi, Yogrishi Vishvektu, and undertook the Yoga Alliance YTT course which qualifies me to teach Akhanda Yoga.

So after reading about me, what about you?

  • You share the same beliefs and values as me?
  • You need some quality ‘me’ time?
  • You are looking for a therapist who believes in you?
  • Perhaps you are a therapist who is looking for another therapist to help?
  • You have aches and pains or a reoccurring injury?
  • You have areas of tightness and tension?
  • You are looking to implement a new routine in your life?
  • Perhaps learn something new? Yoga for health and happiness?

My guess is that if you have ticked some or all these boxes then you should come and talk to me.
