Welcome to Karis Therapies.

Here at Karis, 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, book an hour under any therapy and at your first appointment, we will discuss what you're looking to achieve then help you get there.

We will continue to follow government advice and COVID protocol while treating our clients. This includes wearing a mask and I will continue to meet you at the door when you arrive for your appointment.  

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.

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.

Mobile Massage

For people who struggle to leave the house and would still benefit from a massage, Karis Therapies will come to you!

We bring with us a mobile therapy table or chair as well as towels, head and body support, oils and our expertise.

These sessions are more for the elderly or those recovering from or being treated for, chronic conditions and live within Renfrewshire.

Please phone 07525761213 to arrange

Pregnancy Massage

Anyone who's ever had a professional massage knows that both body and mind feel better afterwards — and the same goes for prenatal massage, which can feel extra wonderful when extra weight and changes in posture stir up new aches and pains.

Here’s everything moms-to-be need to know about getting a massage during pregnancy.  Have a look at 'What to expect' online for thorough information on prenatal massage.


Reflexology Massage along with pressure point application leads to the support of your over all wellbeing.  The reflex sends a calming message from the peripheral nerves to the central nervous system, which then signals the body to adjust the tension and relax.  Where the lymphatic system can become sluggish the reflex massage promotes the blood to flow more freely, up through the feet into the body.  Appointments are with Belinda, our in house reflexologist.

Sports and Remedial Massage

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 and post operative support.

I am available to assist with pre and post sport events.

Sports Injury

Swedish Massage

The well known and well loved restorative therapy which leaves you chilled, relaxed and feeling cared for.  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!

Shoulder Massage
We were watching a farmer use 5 sheep do

AMAZING, couldn't rave on anymore, started with a stiff and tight left shoulder, after a one session could feel the benefit from it, after two felt like I had a cast/vise removed from my shoulder, completely freed up, after a few more sessions it got stronger and stronger, now I have zero pain, or tightness has made my day to day life easier and working a rather manual lifting job has helped me drastically,

anyone debating on booking, JUST DO IT, YOU WONT REGRET IT

"The first wealth is health"

About Viv

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!)

I am happy to answer any questions you may have and appointment times are flexible so you can find a time that suits you. Any appointments booked are tailored to YOU and what your body needs! So why not get in touch and book an appointment with

a certified Massage Therapist specializing in a variety of treatment services.

I highly recommend Karis Massage Therapies!!!

Viv has changed my life for the better!

I struggled for 3 years with lower back and hip pain. I was constantly back and fourth between doctors, hospital appointments, different physiotherapy through the Nhs. I was given countless different kinds medication to help with the pain and nothing really worked. I was pretty much bed bound by pain and suffered from depression as I had to give up my full time job. I then heard about Karis Massage Therapies through a friend. Meeting Viv she listened, explained and gradually used her healing hands to help feel every issue with my lower back, hips and found other related issues. Over 7 weeks she gradually eased my nerve pain using massage techniques. Now I'm working full time again and able to enjoy life and spent time with family and friends without worrying about being in pain 24/7.

Viv is an incredible lady, she is very understanding and genuine and has a fabulous personality and sense of humour to go with her extraordinary healing hands!

Thank you so much for changing my life Viv!
