The Team in Spain



One of my earliest memories as a child was helping my Mum baking cakes, especially the cleaning out the bowl part, she was a very good cook and it seems to have rubbed off on me. I love preparing food and and of course enjoy eating too. I’m fortunate to live in an area where wonderful fresh and organic food is easy to come by, and live on an olive farm with my partner Trevor where we produce our own organic olives and olive oil. The food I enjoy most is simple and fresh with an overall Mediterranean influence. lots of fresh herbs to add flavour and loads of salad. I use as much fresh organic and local produce as I can find....fruit, veg. fresh eggs, local goats and sheep’s´ cheeses, nuts and seeds, herbs, fish and free-range chicken, supplemented with organic grains such as quinoa, millet and basmati rice. And of course my own olive oil!And at the end of the week I try to let everyone have a copy of the recipes I’ve used that week so they can try them out at home and keep on eating healthily.....

Claire is a qualified Reflexologist and Indian Head Masseuse and has lived and worked in Orgiva, Las Alpujarras for the past 22 years. She trained for both therapies in Spain to international standards. Clare is passionate about both of these therapies and feels that she does help to aid both physical and emotional balances in her clients.

I trained with the London School of Aromatherapy in 1990 and ran a busy practice in the UK before moving to Spain 6 years ago. I offer a deep, thorough, nurturing full body massage which enables a profound state of relaxation to be reached. I have developed my own way of working over the years using a combination of massage with essential oils and hands-on stillness and energy balancing. My aim is for you to emerge refreshed, relaxed and whole. I now live in the Orgiva area and have regular private clients as well as working with groups.

She graduated as a yoga teacher with the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre in Kerala and has also studied the Iyengar yoga method.
