Hello and thank you for visiting my website, my name is May McLachlan I am the founder of Tranquility Rose Complementary Therapies.
My career path has varied over the years, on leaving school I qualified in Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy and worked in this profession for some years in London before returning home to Bute to bring up my son.
While readjusting to community life, I volunteered with a local Voluntary Counselling Service and retrained as a Counsellor progressing over the years to become Lead Manager for the organisation within Argyll and Bute.
My journey into Holistic Therapies, I credit to a chance opportunity to learn Transcendental Meditation and embracing opportunities to study and train in various massage techniques. Gaining Diplomas in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Seated Acupressure, Indian Head Massage and Hot Stone Massage. During this period of study, I continued on a personal journey to become a Reiki Master.
I have always had an interest in holistic therapies and taking a natural approach to looking after my own general health and well-being.
Changes to my personal circumstances created the timing for me to follow my passion for Reflexology, a treatment approach I sought to assist with managing my own stress related health issues and lumber back problems.
In July 2017, I gained my Practitioners Diploma in Clinical Reflexology SCQF LEVEL 8 (the highest level of reflexology training available in the UK).
Continuing my learning in the reflexology field I was fortunate to receive a place at The London School of Reflexology, Regents University, London where I gained Diplomas in the Bergman method of Facial Reflexology and the award winning Zone Face Lift Programme. I was privileged to be tutored and mentored by the holistic beauty expert and creator of the award winning Zone Face Lift Treatment and Bergman Facial Reflexology, Ziggie Bergman.
Drawing on my background skills, learning and experience while following my true belief in the many positive benefits of holistic therapies I founded Tranquility Rose.
Tranquility Rose was born from a dream of promoting a more natural approach to supporting general health and improving well-being through Complementary Therapies. With an instilled appreciation and love of the outdoors and our natural environment, I base the ethos of Tranquility Rose Complementary Therapy on all things natural.
Therefore all products used in in the delivery of treatments are organic, sustainable, environmentally friendly and cruelty free.
Caring deeply for our natural environment the products used in all treatments offered at Tranquility Rose are sourced from companies that hold the same Eco values and beliefs.
