About us – Caring Cottage, the beginnings

Caring Cottage was created from a desire to help others and to make them feel welcome and cared for. Wayne’s mum always provided food, shelter and a cup of tea to whoever walked through the door. As a child he grew up with a welcoming environment which included all people who came to his home. Wayne and wife Kirsty desired to recreate that environment to carry on the caring actions of his mum. Today, Caring Cottage is a little place of tranquillity that we have created. Come in and experience the tranquility and peace of our little space designed especially for you to relax and begin your healing journey….book an appointment today!

Meet Steph

Stephanie Cordery (BA (Psych Crim), Dip RM)

Steph is passionate about treating the whole body. She has been massaging since 2004 in various roles. The past 5 years have been focused on chronic pain and chronic conditions. Steph believes that pain involves the whole body, and through treating the body as a whole, we get better results!

Steph is:

  • Trained in myofascial cupping, hot stone massage, as well as modalities such as trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and deep tissue massage.
  • able to use her hands to feel areas of distortion in the body – where the pain is, may not be where the problem is!
  • caring and empathetic and able to make you feel at ease with your treatment.

Meet Kirsty

Kirsty Newbery, MMHN, RN, TAE (Adult training), Reiki Master, Dip. RMT, Dip Reflexology, Dip. Aromatherapy.
She found after 3 decades of nursing that medical illnesses and surgery are often preventable. Helping people to maintain their health and well-being through natural and wholistic therapies was a satisfying alternative. So, embarking on a new career path, she chose massage and later included Reiki, Reflexology and Aromatherapy as part of that desire to ‘heal thyself’.

Kirsty is:

  • a Reiki Master and teaches Reiki to others. Reiki  is used for healing on its own or as part of the massage treatment.
  • passionate about helping others to regain their posture and reduce aches and pains through her gently developed remedial massage skills.
  • currently learning Ortho-bionomy to gain insights to more gentle techniques.  However, a more robust massage is also available if preferred!
  • an adult trainer in Remedial Massage, Reflexology and First Aid.
