Cramond Holistics  is run by Rosie Murchie, based in Cramond, Edinburgh offering Holistic Massage along with Hot Stones treatment. Rosie is a certified massage therapist having studied for a diploma from The Massage Training Institute.

Rosie was born and brought up in South Africa and emigrated to Scotland in 1985. When she was first introduced to  massage in 1996, Rosie had always held the belief that it was a luxury, not realising the overall health benefits that massage could deliver. In late 2010 Rosie took an introductory massage course called “The Essence of Touch” with Joolz Flynn at the Pain Recovery Clinic.

This was the start of Rosie’s passion for massage therapy which led her to undertake a diploma in holistic massage at Rosslyn Alternatives School of Massage in 2011.

Rosie quickly followed the diploma with a course in Hot Stone Massage Therapy, also at Rosslyn Alternatives,  which is recognised by the Federation of Holistic Therapists.

Rosie is a carer and is passionate about helping other carer’s to find a space for themselves. She also aims to help carers recognise that in order to care for someone else, you need to care for yourself first.
