Papillon – Geraldine Chesta - Comfort and Relaxation through touch
Hi, I’m Geraldine and I want to help people feel good through health and wellbeing therapies. I’ve lived in Nottingham since 1999 and am originally from Antibes in the South Of France.
I’ve always had a keen interest in beauty but more recently I’ve developed a stronger interest in the process of healing the mind to heal the body.
Through my own experience with chronic illnesses(MS), I’ve used and discovered the many benefits holistic therapies offer and how important it is to have some ‘me’ time.
I’m happy to have studied in Nottingham and in France to become a fully qualified beauty and massage therapist and Reiki practitioner. Most recently I have qualified in Reflexology in the beautiful settings of Cornwall and I am pleased to be able to offer this treatment at a reduced price for the first few weeks.
With Reflexology, I aim to restore and relax your wellbeing to harmony, maximising your body's wonderful capacity to heal.
By massaging and stimulating the reflex points on the feet, healing is promoted in the corresponding organs of the body. Reflexology works to remove energy blockages to heal imbalances, improve circulation, soothe pain/inflammation, ease tension and promote detoxification. Beneficial for all physical ailments and for maintaining good health.
I carry out my treatments using the wonderful Weleda oil range.
The benefits of holistic therapies are endless because they always work in harmony with a person’s needs.
I also specialise in treating people with care needs and senior citizens because these groups of people, like everyone often need a healing hand.

About Weleda: Strengthening the personal balance between body, mind and spirit. Weleda has been making a valuable contribution to this balance ever since its founding over 90 years ago. In other words: we want you to feel good,in body, mind and spirit. Weleda’s natural and organic cosmetics promote well-being: if you want to stay healthy and fit it is important to feel comfortable in your own skin. We have thousands of different pharmaceuticals available for illnesses and injuries. We rely on the body’s healing and regeneration processes, strengthening the body’s defences and restoring the balance of body, soul and spirit. Weleda’s natural and organic cosmetics and pharmaceuticals are based on an anthroposophical understanding of people and nature, which states that life processes in the human body and nature are similar. As a result, all preparations and products are formulated using carefully selected natural substances. However, for us what goes into the body is just as important as what does not –we constantly avoid the use of synthetic fragrances and dyes, preservatives and mineral oil-based ingredients.
Louise Williams BSc (Hons), HCPC, MCSP, AACP.
Physiotherapist - specialising in the management of chronic pain, health and wellbeing.
My dance with pain started 16 years ago during my pregnancy with my youngest son, I have had chronic back pain since and more recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia syndrome. This journey led me to try many treatments and sparked my interest in becoming a Physiotherapist. Shortly after graduating from the University of Nottingham in 2011 I began working with people who have chronic pain, running cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) based group pain management programmes and individual education and rehabilitation for pain reduction. The research evidence strongly suggests, that learning active self-management strategies to cope with and reduce persistent pain is more effective than becoming reliant on passive treatment alone, this has also been my experience.
To facilitate self-management and rehabilitation I have developed a holistic diversity of skills, including; Acupuncture, Reflexology, Movement Intelligence, Massage, Mindful relaxation and diaphragmatic breathing, Pacing, Goal setting, Postural advice, Activities of daily living, Flare up planning and Sleep hygiene. Exercise guidance is based around establishing comfortable physical functional everyday activities, and progressing personal goals. Chronic pain can have a devastating impact on our lives, physically, emotionally and socially. I work intuitively by listening to the personal story and developing meaningful goals. Working together, potential barriers to progression can be identified and challenged.
The aim of my practice is to support and facilitate self-healing and restore the body’s tissues to health. Improving physical function and looking at some of the issues which may have arisen as a result of persistent pain enables people to: get out more and do the things they enjoy, return to work, improve relationships with others, increase confidence and feel in control. How we relate to our pain colours our experience. By changing our relationship, a progressive path of self-development will evolve, which will in turn create greater health and wellbeing to ‘dance’ through life.
