Brittany Pretty

Hi My name is Brittany. I have worked in the holistic healing industry for 10 years. Graduating my Diploma in Remedial Massage in 2012 was the starting point in what I needed to treat my patients.

I began to really notice a difference in the improvement of their concerns, whether it be stress or pain, by tuning into their connections with the mind, body and spiritual side, all whilst using the tools I had in Remedial Massage.

About Me: An unforgettable treatment!

I learned many different styles of healing; reflexology, the aura and chakras, crystal work, aromatherapy and the benefits of just relaxing!

Of course there may be structural reasons to your concerns surrounding pain or stress, my job is to find what works for you!

My specialty is working with my patients to finding a specific pathway to a better, more improved you. To find that perfect balance of treatment.

With a high level of service catering towards managing your pain and stress, you can be sure to leave feeling balanced, revived and with little to no pain! Though some may feel tender due to massage, non will compare to the feeling you had prior to your visit.

With over 10 years of experience in the field, you know you’re in good hands with Bree, here at Good Vibrations Massage and Acupuncture.
