Welcome to Karis Therapies.
We offer a range of therapies which we use to treat anyone who needs massage support, whether it be for relaxation, sports therapy, injury support or stress relief.
If you're not sure what you need, just book the time under any therapy and at your first appointment we will discuss what you're looking to achieve then help you get there.
We only use the best products and techniques. Fully insured and professionally accredited, Karis Therapies thrives on helping you feel better than ever and keep you doing the things you love.
Therapy on Offer:
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is about technique, tools and knowing your anatomy. It certainly is not about leaving clients with bruises! Deep tissue massage is used when working on an area that requires a deeper release and preparation for more ongoing movement and better strength. Usually used in conjunction with other effective techniques. I love showing my clients how just a few treatments can make an enormous difference to their health.
Holistic medicine includes a broad range of medical practices that are based on many years of tradition. With Swedish Massage treatment, your body and mind will feel free and clear of all worries and stressors that life places upon us. A real R&R experience!
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point therapy is a quick and effective way of releasing stored muscle stress which if left untreated may lead to a real block in the effectiveness of that muscle. Trigger point therapy is one of my favourite forms of treatment due to its deep sense of release and unlocking of a large area.
Sports and Remedial Massage
I am available to assist with pre and post sport events.
For remedial work I use particular techniques to help the muscles return to a fit state either after an injury or strain or just to balance up the area. We will work together to tailor the therapy session to diagnose and treat the area causing pain and loss of range of movement. This massage is great for any muscle strains, frozen shoulder, lumbar/thoracic pain, sciatica, whiplash, posture realignment etc.
Baby massage is a unique and wonderful way to communicate reassurance, build confidence, strengthen the immune system and help with pain. Real loving touch helps grow babies into adults who have a good sense of space and balance.
Baby massage is perfect for creating time for healthy attachment bonds to form leading to enriching healthy relationships in later life.
For those who are perhaps struggling with the arrival of their baby, these classes can help tremendously to ease anxiety and loneliness
and grow confidence.
It's also a skill you can use until they no longer want cuddles from you! Plus you get to meet other mums at the same stage as you. As long as your wee one is not crawling off, baby massage is an option.
Please see Facebook page Baby Massage Renfrewshire 'services' for dates, cost and booking.
A light and lasting way to support the body as it recovers, or improve range of movement. Assists with posture adjustment and areas where the muscles are under pressure (pregnancy).

Should you be arriving by car, we offer a parking lot with parking for our customers and street parking.
I have always been about health. From my interest in psychology, to my nurse training, working in the Beatson, to Health Promotion and volunteer work with children. I hope to help people stay healthy in the full sense of the word so they can be present and fully involved in their own lives and the lives of those who love them.
As a therapist, massage covers all the passions - able to offer a place to rest and then reengage with life, help immediately with physical problems through hands on techniques and support others to reach their personal goals by preventing injuries and increasing strength and range of movement in the body. You could be 8 or 80 - massage benefits everyone who has muscle!
Perhaps you climb out of bed with a stiff back and neck? Maybe you're a new mum with shoulder and back pain? Too many hours in front of the computer? Behind the wheel stressing you out? Are you training for a marathon or trying to improve your fitness?
Perhaps you own a business and want to support your team, reduce stress and improve health?
Maybe you’ve never had a massage and just want to see what it’s like? (Its awesome!)
