The company was set up 14 years ago by myself, Lise-Maria. My approach is to care for the ‘whole-person’ ; their physical pains, emotional situation and any current mental stresses. I aim to work effectively on a physical level whilst supporting clients emotionally and promoting mental calm and well being. B*Calmed aims to provide a high standard of treatments or tuition tailored to your individual needs. B*Calmed is based in a peaceful, warm and welcoming environment suitable for both males and females. Appointments are generously timed, allowing clients to fully relax and maximize treatment benefits.
My training, work experience and any achievement
I first became involved with ‘Natural Health Care’ some 20+ years ago in the search for answers to my own health problems. My first involvement was with diet and nutrition; I studied whole-food cookery, Macrobiotic cookery and later on Cordon Bleu cookery. For me Macrobiotics was a revelation which completely transformed my health. Enthused by this I went on to work as a cook in several Macrobiotic and Natural Health Care centres abroad. On return home I expanded my interests into physical therapies for health and healing – completing professional qualifications in many complementary therapies.
Wishing to bring the benefits of these therapies to a wider audience I then trained as an Adult Education teacher. I have taught for the: W.E.A, Wirral Met College, M.I.N.D, Marks & Spencers, Lever Brothers, Help for Carers and Birkenhead Sixth Form College (BSFC) to name but a few organizations. As a therapist I have worked in spas, hotels and colleges, care centres, client’s homes and from my own centre. I now mainly work from my own premises, finding it allows me to meet clients needs most fully.

IIHHT Dip. in Aromatherapy

Early morning and weekend appts. available.
(Not a mobile company, but where possible clients with mobility issues may be visited in their own homes).
Clients should phone 8.30-9.30am or 5.00-6.00pm Mon-Sat, for personal answer from therapist. Outside these times or if phone/therapist busy please use answer phone or leave a text message. (Please speak slowly and clearly on all voice messages – I will ring you back as soon as I am free).
(Therapies and/or Nutritional Advice can help many other conditions. Please feel free to ring me to discuss any listed or unlisted health concerns you may have.)
Mature Clients (No upper age limit)
I offer warm, peaceful, traditional surroundings that mature clients say they feel comfortable in. As a therapist for over 16 years, I have treated clients of up to 89 years old, clients with a wide range of conditions and of ‘all shapes & sizes’. Please be assured that whatever age you are, whatever your health concerns, or whatever shape you are in, I will consider that to be ‘quite normal’ and I shall be very happy to see you as a client.
I offer a wide range of therapies suited to different health concerns and personal preferences, some clients/health concerns will benefit from just one treatment, others will require a course of treatments (usually 4-6). As you may be aware therapies can require some disrobing; however clients can trust that their decency, dignity and decorum are my ‘upmost’ concern. Thus clients are left to get changed in private and will be suitably draped with towels throughout their full treatment. Furthermore as a small therapy practice your appointment time is always unique to you. There is no ‘waiting room’, so you will never ‘bump into’ other clients and so your privacy is always guaranteed. (However other therapists/staff may be present at times.)
All clients are given a free consultation with their first appointment to ascertain their needs, preferred therapies and suitability for treatment. Records are treated as highly confidential and kept securely at all times. All information given or conversations throughout appointments are similarly treated as confidential.
I look forward to hearing from you to discuss your health concerns and explain how B*Calmed can help you.
Having cared for family and friends myself and also worked as a professional carer, I empathize with the difficulties and stresses carers go through. I also understand some of the physical ailments, emotional difficulties, shortage of time and financial hardship carers often endure. With this in mind I have created some shorter and less expensive treatments for carers:-
Foot Massage 20 mins : £10.00
Hand Massage 20 mins : £10.00
Hand & Foot Massage 30 mins : £15.00
Back Massage 30 mins : £15.00
I have a limited number of these appointments available weekly (should you be a carer but financially secure, I would politely request you pay my usual charges e.g. £20.00: 30 mins etc.)
Carers may wish to avail themselves of the governments ‘short-break’ fund. This is a one off payment of £250 which can be used to pay for therapy treatments (and/or a short break). Speak to your Doctor for details/form. Forms are forwarded to ‘Wired’ who then send out payments.
Free Consultation : with 1st Appt. to determine clients personal needs/concerns and treatment plan.

Thank-you for another relaxing massage: once again you have managed to ease my aches & pains.
I found (the massage) most enjoyable! I felt relaxed and refreshed & your expertise was greatly appreciated.
Thank-you so much….. you always give 110% value
To feel cared for, for myself, somehow makes you smile.
I cannot explain how much ‘free-er’ I feel. I received good advice following a serious car accident and found the massage relaxing but also it seemed to clear my head as well as relax my body.
My treatment was a real treat – very therapeutic and relaxing
I have had a bad back & sciatica for over a year and pain killers that I had been prescribed made me very ill. I could not spend any amount of time on my feet or walk any distance. I was very skeptical that a massage would help – but it has enormously…..my back pain has been greatly reduced and I am far more mobile.
So relaxed after massage, best nights sleep I’ve had in years!
