Weather you're experiencing physical or mental discomfort or tension, or just been busy and need to chill for an hour or two...Give your body and mind a healthy boost with a soothing, relaxing, revitalising or invigorating treatment...Allow tension to dissolve from your body and the mind will fully relax too...

When asked how clients feel at the end of a treatment, most simply say AMAZING!

I offer Aromatherapy Massage, Remedial Massage and Ayurvedic Massage, Indian Head Reiki, Reflexology and Craniosacral Therapy in a Natural Health and Beauty Center in the heart of Exeter. Please ask if you'd like a combined therapy approach.

Please also enquire about Reiki One courses which enable you to treat yourself.


Complementary Therapy treatments may be taken Mondays to Saturdays from 10 am to 8pm.

Generally I work in Exeter city center Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays with Saturday treatments available by booking in advance.

Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons I do home and workplace visits.


For ladies and the elderly, treatments may also be taken in the comfort of your own home

A fully qualified professional therapist will consider your medical history and current needs to provide a personalised treatment each session.

Mary uses her training, experience and intuitive touch to identify muscle tension and energy blockages, and works to release the root of tension for longer lasting results.

Whether you're looking to resolve pain, general stress, just want a treat or in need of some deep relaxation, I have the appropriate treatment for you.

Massage boosts the immune system, stimulates the circulation and the lymphatic system, increases energy levels and induces calm in both mind and body.

Massage releases endorphins, the pain-relieving happy hormones.

Massage stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which slows the body down, encourages deeper breathing, lowers heart rate and switches digestion back on.

Massage relaxes all the systems of the body, which either shut down or speed up as a result of stress, and helps with stress related conditions such as IBS, insomnia and headaches.

Massage stimulates the body's natural ability to repair and renew, at cellular level.

Massage helps treat depression and symptoms such as low self esteem by boosting wellbeing which improves mood and assists one to get back on track.

Healing touch through massage is very powerful. A treatment session is a great opportunity to truly relax on a mental and physical level. An hour or so dedicated to yourself in this way takes you away from your worries and into a state of deep relaxation.

That was exactly what I needed! I feel so relaxed now, like nothing matters.
Mr B Porter

I don't know what you've done, but you've done something! I can't believe half an hour ago I could hardly stand up and now I feel fine.
Mr S Gamble, arrived with severe stomach cramps. 


Craniosacral Therapy
During the treatment I felt deeply relaxed and was aware of pulling and stretching forces inside my body and a lot of heat from Mary's hands at times. Afterwards I felt really calm and quite revitalised. This continued over the next few days and I noticed I was a lot less anxious. The tension is my shoulders has reduced and I feel like the treatments are really helping me.
K Maunders, Exeter

 How do I prepare for a treatment?
 For Reiki and Craniosacral Therapy you remain fully clothed. Please wear loose comfortable clothing you can relax in lying down.

For Reflexology shoes and socks are removed. If you can come with clean feet it is appreciated! Or I can give them a clean if you're coming straight from work.

For Massage treatments ideally shower beforehand. It can be good to leave the massage oil in overnight, particularly for Aromatherapy massage.

I will clean your feet prior to a full body massage to prevent spreading any sock fluff or dirt around.

mary-grove-therapistMary Grove was born and raised in Exeter and her interest in Complementary Therapies began as a teenager when she became dissatisfied with conventional medicine to treat a number of complaints. At this time she started experiencing various complementary therapies and buying and using essential oils.

Her interest in the human condition and mind body spirit connection led her to studies in Philosophy, Psychology and Human Biology, then a degree in Social Anthropology with a particular focus on the understanding of health and illness in other cultures. She has spent much of the last 14 years travelling the five continents of the world and experiencing different ways of life. She has worked on various social and environmental projects as a volunteer in Israel, India, Ecuador, Bolivia, Australia and also in paid work in Europe, Israel, Australia and New Zealand.

Having many years experience using essential oils, she qualified in Hoilstic Massage, Aromatherapy and Reflexology in 2004, and towards the end of that year she studied Ayurvedic Medicine in India with a traditional Keralan Teacher. She took Usui Reiki level 2 In New Zealand in the following year. Mary is a qualified Reiki Master in the Usui tradition and is now teaching Reiki courses.

In 2008 Mary completed a 2 year course in Craniosacral Therapy at Karuna institute on Dartmoor. The principles of this work can be combined with your chosen treatment for added benefits. She holds professional membership of the UK Craniosacral Therapy Association and the International Affiliation of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapists.

From 2006 - June 2010 Mary worked primarily from Orange Blossom Spa in Exeter, and then moved her practice to Zamora Natural Health and Beauty on Magdalen Road. During 2007 and 2008 worked for Hospiscare in Exeter as a volunteer Complementary Therapist in day care and home visits. In early 2009 Mary Spent time working at Sambhavna hospital in Bhopal, where she worked producing herbal medicines and giving Ayurvedic massage, steam and other natural treatments. During 2010 she has undertaken further courses in myofascial release, and also making natural cosmetics and beauty products from oils, natural butters, waxes, floral waters and essential oils. She is now able to make creams to order for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, or just to moisturise and smell and feel gorgeous!
Recent bookings have included stress relieving Indian Head massages on staff at South West Water and EDF, and group bookings at various Retreats in Devon, including Karuna Detox Retreat.

Mary is a fully qualified and insured therapist and a member of the Complementary Therapists Association, Embody, and The Craniosacral Therapy Association. She is committed to Continual Professional development, regularly undertakes further professional training and meets with other local and national therapists for peer led exchanges, discussion and development.

Her particular interests within the therapies that she practices are stress reduction and relaxation, and the use of essential oils not only for physical complaints but also to treat the emotions and spirit. She is continually fascinated by the results and relief clients obtain through energy work treatments such as Craniosacral Therapy and Reiki and feels blessed to be used as a channel or trigger for healing. Mary enjoys practicing these therapies and finds this work highly rewarding. She also benefits from the knowledge that she is easing away tensions and assisting people to take responsibility for their health and well being.

She looks forward to meeting you!
