Maria Dobrea has over a decade of professional experience which began in her home country, Romania, and nurtured in London. She completed a comprehensive program at Reflexo-vital in Bacau where she trained in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Therapy, and Reflexology. She moved to London to work as a nanny for her cousin who was also expecting at the time. This is when Maria decided she wanted to help other expecting mums cope with the physical and emotional demands of pregnancy, and went on to specialise to in ante and postnatal massage therapy.
Using a specially designed pregnancy cushion, where her clients can lie facedown during their treatment, Maria carefully adapts traditional massage techniques to ease discomfort, improve circulation, and promote relaxation, whilst ensuring the comfort and safety of both mum and baby.
Her interest in alternative medicine has continued to grow. At Middlesex School of Complementary Medicine she has completed several Advanced Massage course including Trigger Point Therapy, Neuromuscular Techniques, and Effective Stretching. These skills have broadened Maria's ability to tailor her treatments effectively for her clients especially those experiencing high levels of stress and tension from the hustle and bustle of living/working in a big city.
Not only is Maria a caring and nurturing practitioner but she also practices what she preaches and ensures she gets regular massage treatments and enjoys her relaxing leisure time out with nature.
