Maria Rees


Lotus Flower Therapies first opened its doors on 6th March 2008. Offering Indian Head Massage, Reflexology, Reiki and Hopi Ear Candling, and most recently On Site Massage.

I held an Open Day in April at Forge Fach Community Centre, Clydach, Swansea offering taster sessions of the above therapies. I had an excellent response and people found it a useful way of finding out if Complementary Therapy in Swansea, would work for them.

I work from home or make home calls.


I am Lotus Flower Therapies. My name is Maria Rees.

I am a single mum of three, living in Swansea, and this, my business is run on a part time basis. My main profession is Nursing, I am a registered general nurse working in Morriston Hospital.

I have been interested in Complementary Therapies for many years, and finally decided to do something positive by enrolling on courses, which I enjoyed immensely and benefited from by being practised on by other students. The therapies I offer are described on other pages for you to read at your own leisure.

Below I have put in chronological order the courses that I have currently undertaken:

  1. Reflexology - Level 3 Certificate - through the International Institute of Health and Holistic Therapies at Neath/Port Talbot College, Wales, in 2003/2004
  2. Indian Head Massage - Level 3 Diploma - through Vocational Training Charitable Trust (formerly International Institute of Health and Holistic Therapies) at Swansea College, Wales, in 2006/2007

We live in a fast paced world, that expects us to be super women, super men, super workers, super everything and all this is stressful to the mind and body.

We all need to give ourselves time, time to unwind, time to think, time to reflect.

At Lotus Flower Therapies my aim is to help you to unwind, help you to give yourself time to think and give yourself time to reflect.

As you lay on a couch or sit in a chair gentle music will help you to unwind while I offer you one of the therapies of your choice. This time is YOU time, not something that enough of us are willing to give to ourselves, and is very therapeutic to every day life.
