Claire's Treatments

Health is not merely the absence of disease, it is the balance of mind, body and soul.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

MLD is an effective way of managing symptoms of oedema, chronic oedema, lymphoedema (abnormal accumulation of fluid within the soft tissues), and lipedema (abnormal accumulation of fat). This treatment can also help with fatigue, migraines, auto-immune disorders, allergies, sinus problems and general wellbeing. 

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is an extremely gentle rhythmic advanced type of massage applied in a specific order and directly on the skin using no medium, which stimulates and has a powerful cleansing, relaxing, pain relieving and immunological effect on the body’s lymphatic system

Surgeons often recommend MLD following cosmetic procedures and operations to aid recovery and healing as it reduces swelling and bruising, while also promoting the elimination of toxins and cellular debris.


Post Cosmetic MLD 

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is highly recommended if you have had any form of surgery, especially cosmetic treatments such as liposuction, reducing the risk of developing seroma and ensuring optimal healing.  The lymphatic system promotes healing by fighting infection, reducing inflammation to the trauma site and clearing the damaged area of swelling, bruising and residual toxins including metabolic waste. 


Body Energy Balancing

Body Energy Balancing at Claire's Magic Touch Studio in Poole is incredibly effective in balancing the body to help engage its natural healing responses.  This treatment is recommended for managing high stress, chronic pain, states of anxiety, and general wellbeing. An important part of this treatment is the Japanese spiritual healing system Reiki where your practitioner channels your vital life force energy (Qi) by laying hands at specific points on and over the clothed body. 


Facial Acupuncture

Cosmetic facial acupuncture can be combined with light-emitting diode LED light therapy to improve your appearance and address underlying body imbalances. It can strengthen and stimulate the face and body's energy circulation to help tighten pores, improve muscle tone, increase collagen, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin elasticity.  LED light is also beneficial for people with problematic inflamed skin, including eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, and acne. 


Five Star Reviews of Claire’s Magic Touch

I have been seeing Claire since I first hobbled into her studio a year and a half ago with impact-induced lymphoedema. I had been in agony for over a week and was at my wit’s end. After just one MLD session, the pain was lifted and I practically skipped home! Claire is amazing. I have often recommended her to people, only to discover she has already been recommended by somebody else! This lady is magic. As others have said, her knowledge and insight is outstanding, reassuring, and downright fascinating. Her personality is so warm, good-humoured and professional that I felt safe and comfortable as soon as I met her. Go see Claire. Your body and mind will thank you.

Well what can I say ...... I had a 360 abdominoplasty at the end of November 2022 my surgeon had informed me to book in for a lymphatic drainage massage after my surgery to help with my recovery and speed it up. I had no idea what it was I came away and googled and I came accross Claire's Magic Touch I contacted Claire and she responded to me and explained what it is and how it would be performed. All I can say is Claire is such a lovely, professional woman who is amazing at her job. She makes you feel comfortable and reassured me and helped me through my healing progress. Any worries I had I would ask her questions and she would always give me advice. It was soo nice having my sessions with Claire as I felt less worried as I had Claire by my side helping me through. After 3 massages with Claire I had a week check up appointment at the hospital they were very happy with my healing and said my lymphatic drainage massage lady is doing a really good job as my swelling was minimal and feeling my stomach and sides everything was healing the right way. I believe if I hadn't have had a lymphatic drainage massage booked in then my healing progress would or could have been longer, painful and may have had complications such as fibrosis. Thank you soo much Claire for helping me through and speeding up my healing progress your work is AMAZING

Claire is the sort of person who you feel you have known for years right from the very first time you meet her - She’s incredibly friendly and warm and I trusted her instantly. But what also becomes apparent very quickly is her professionalism and obvious knowledge of all things connected healing and well-being. Yes, she undoubtedly has a “magic touch” (there is something very special about this lady, no question) but there is more to her than that: Her holistic practice is also deeply rooted in science and study. She really, REALLY knows her stuff!
Claire carefully and skillfully improved my postoperative recovery with each MLD session. She was always calm and gentle, explaining any treatment method she used; so, I always felt comfortable and safe with her. Each session was unique to the state of recovery. Also, her advice regarding what I could do at home positively impacted my recovery. She not only helped me physically heal, but supported me emotionally - I am deeply grateful for that. I am certain that without Claire, I would have had to endure a more difficult recovery period, and possibly end up with suboptimal results. I highly recommend Claire!
I have been fortunate enough to have been going to Claire for treatments for over a year now. I can honestly say the treatments that Claire offers are incredible. The name of her business couldn’t be more accurate she really does have a magic touch and she really is a wonderful healer. Claire’s treatments have not only helped me physically but also emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I would 100% recommended trying one of her treatments.
What can I say but amazing. I have had to MLD massage since having plastic surgery last week and all I can Isay is always leave Claire feeling so much more comfortable then when I arrive. Claire is very caring and reassuring. She talks you though every she does when she does it and why she is doing it. I am so glad I found you and can’t wait for my next massage and to leave feeling a million times better
I have had two rounds of plastic surgery. My surgeon recommended Lymphatic Drainage Massage to help with the healing process. The first time I saw Claire I was around a week post op and VERY uncomfortable. From the first treatment there was relief from the swelling. She is very experienced with this procedure and it is so relaxing! She also has a wealth of knowledge of post operative supplements, soft tissue techniques and work you can do yourself at home to help your healing process. I genuinely recommend that you book some appointments for after your surgery. I found them invaluable and her support is worth its weight in gold.

This was my first Decongestant MLD facial massage with additional 30 min LED light with Claire and I enjoyed every minute of the whole treatment. I felt totally relaxed throughout and loved the way Claire explained everything she was doing, along with the effects it would have on my face. It has given my face a fresh, rosy glow and I can't wait for my next appointment.

Claire's therapy room is lovely as is Claire who puts heart and soul into her treatments. I'm peri-menopausal & my heavy periods have been awful. However, after having just a couple of Claire's detoxifying abdominal massages I have to say everything has been massively improved which is amazing. Pain less & no problems with leaving the house now!! Thanks Claire!!

So much to say I don't even know where to start. Claire is a power house of knowledge and care, each visit is unique and tailored to how you feel but also what Claire feels about your body and general wellbeing. I have been seeing Claire for over 16 weeks now to help with my healing journey from surgery but also from a medical condition and the results from the care for my surgery have been exceptional but also my general health has improved. From the minute you meet Claire you feel comfortable and safe and know that whatever journey the treatment takes you on you feel like a new person after. I have loved every weekly session and will continue with weekly or bi weekly sessions with different treatments each week depending on what my body is in need off: the Lymphatic and Body treatments are outstanding, MLD blew me away with what it does to the body, Holistic Bodywork which will blow your mind and one that really has healed me from within, dry cupping OMG I love so so much - it is instant the feeling of improvement within the body. Thank you Claire for being so amazing and wonderful in what you do and the passion you have.

Have been a case study for one of Claire’s new treatments, so my first time meeting & being treated by her and a sheer pleasure. She’s very knowledgeable, gentle and explains everything she’s doing. Always bright and cheery so would brighten anyones day. Many little naps for me during treatments as so chilled & relaxed. So if you’re thinking of booking, get booking, you won’t be disappointed.

I am so grateful to of found Claire, her knowledge and expertise, my recovery from surgery would of been extremely difficult if I didn’t have Claire’s advice and experience, especially in Lymphatic Drainage, I could not recommend her enough!

Having received many treatments from Claire I can say her holistic healing hands know exactly how to make you feel whole again…. Reiki is balancing and harmonious. Massage is cleansing and relaxing…. Facial treatments are incredible… after one facial treatment my face looked so fresh and rejuvenated , my lines looked softer and I had a glow in my skin….. because of the unique techniques that Claire used I felt all the tension from my skin release and melt away …… Claire is my one stop shop for all things delightful

I am so happy to recommend Claire and all of her therapies. The treatments themselves being incredibly revitalising I've also learned so much about how to care for myself in-between treatments from Claire. Claire is so comprehensive and able to completely tune into what therapeutic approach will work best for me on the day. No one treatment is the same as the last as Claire works with what she finds and what I need. Each treatment session leaves me uplifted and excited for my next. I've been seeing Claire for treatments since 2017 and I can't imagine life without them! I've also bought gift vouchers for family as gifts which they have loved just as much as me.

I've had a few treatments with Claire, some I booked in for, some she took upon herself to do for me as I was in just because I needed it! Such a lovely caring person with an excellent sense if humour, she takes pride in her work and really wants the best for her clients whilst still being affordable. Claire is very knowledgable in the various treatments she offers and if there's something she doesn't know, she'll do her best to find out! I'll definitely book in with Claire again and would recommend to others.

Claire said to me at my first appointment that when you need someone you find them. I needed to find her for sure! I have been having manual lymphatic drainage massage with Claire since undergoing liposuction to the full front of my legs for lipoedema. The surgery is brutal and recovery is difficult, without my appointments with Claire I don’t know how I’d cope. I haven’t found any of my treatment painful at all and she knows exactly how we will proceed as I heal in the preparation for my 2nd surgery. Physically and emotionally she’s helped me. Claire has a wealth of knowledge, she’s absolutely lovely, makes you feel relaxed and is a real joy to be around. I could not recommend Claire enough!

I visited Claire twice a week for a total of 8 sessions of facial acupuncture. Claire was knowledgeable, friendly and talked me through the process - I was that relaxed I nodded off even with 60 needles in my face! The results were amazing -plumber lips, improved facial structure and not to mention other health benefits including more energy and a better sleep pattern. Throughout the course I had minimal bruising (two tiny bruises that only I noticed). My treatments included a Red/Blue light, facial massage and breathing techniques. I can’t thank Claire enough for results of my treatment

I had MLD with Claire following breast lift with implants and tummy tuck, Claire was so friendly and instantly put me at ease and I fully credit how well and quickly I healed to her excellent skills in MLD. It was also very helpful that she was able to come to me on occasions due to not being allowed to drive for 4 weeks.

I’ve been seeing Claire for deep tissue massage, cupping and dry needles. She’s really has the “magic” touch. I was diagnosed with de quervain’s tenosynovitis in both my wrist. She started treating me for few weeks and I can feel the difference. I don’t wake up with pain in the middle of the night. I regularly exercise in the gym and I was struggling with the pain in my wrist. Now I can hold a “high plank” again. Thanks to Claire x
