Thank you.

Luka, simply what a very special lady you are. I really can't thank you enough for giving and sharing with me your healing massage. You are very humble and soft natured, yet you have these powerful healing hands. I literally floated out of your room and felt like the weight of the last few years had evaporated. I can't thank you enough. I can't believe I've been so lucky to finally find someone who is so gifted.
Lucy Kaufman. Devon

Thank you so very much for today Luka - once again, I feel immense benefit from the time spent with you. Without doubt, you are the best therapist I have ever seen and in each and every session, your kindness, understanding, dedication and gift are so clearly felt. I am so very grateful to you.
K Wilson, Devon

Luka fully encompasses every nurturing characteristic you would wish a therapist to have. My husband and I were very lucky to discover her on a holiday weekend trip, and have made a point of returning every time we visit Totnes. Luka has a wonderfully warm, soothing touch and a calm demeanour resulting in instant relaxation. Her holistic knowledge and advice resulted in me giving up dairy products, which resolved a severe two year sinus problem, which a series of GP and ENT consultant appointments failed to do. We wholeheartedly recommend Luka and all her services, she is a rare gift of extraordinary knowledge and skill
J & A. Luther, Surrey.

A big thank you for all the love, care and wisdom you have shared with me, it has helped me so much on my journey back to self love and appreciation. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
C Sturdy. Devon.

What an unexpected, pleasurable and beneficial experience I had yesterday. Thank you, serendipity at it's best. I walked from you loose and free, and later slept like a log - and on my back! The testimonials say it all - you have magic fingers and an intuitive mind.
Howard Marks. Wales.

I am a writer who spends many hours on my computer. As a result I often suffer from severe back pain and headaches. After a number of unsuccessful visits to therapists, a friend recommended that I make an appointment with Luka. The results after just one consultation and session were remarkable. Luka's intuitive and skilful use of oils and integrated massage techniques made an impact on the problem area immediately. The hour session was deeply effective and healing. I have been back to her many times since then for therapy and always come out feeling nurtured, relaxed and renewed. I can't recommend Luka enough.
Donna Thomson. Devon.

I love your massages - my body trusts your hands, and this doesn't come easy for me. You have a special and unique combination of sensitivity, strength, understanding, wisdom and intuition that make a session with you a deeply nurturing experience - add your knowledge and a few lovely oils to that and well, heaven could hardly be a better place!
N Ludlow. Devon

I treated myself to a massage with Luka. Under her loving touch my body felt beautifully met, nourished and supported to relax and open. She then massaged two dear friends who had been struggling with pain and tension. It was a joy to see them emerge softened, renewed and very grateful.
I would recommend Luka's massages to anyone for the gift of her healing hands, the delicious oils she blends for each person, her warm shining heart, and her capacity to attune to whoever she is working with very deeply.

Fanny Behrens. Devon.

Thank you Luka for your work and care and this fresh air in me! Again you have come in and mopped and mended, put away, polished and replaced my woodwork and soft furnishings, my doors and windows. My floor. Even my curtains.
A Taylor, Devon

Dear Luka, I just want to say thanks so much for the massage you gave me last Friday before I went on holiday. It really helped! I didn't experience any pain whilst I was away. You have a real gift and I am so grateful to be able to come to you when needed.
E Stacey, Devon

I am nearly 65, and over the years as a builder I have acquired a few injuries to my neck and shoulders. For nearly 20 years I have not been able to put my arms straight up, and then I met Luka. She seemed determined to sort this out & after just two massages I felt a significant improvement. I have had about six now & can put my arms straight up. She gets you to think about how you feel about your body & lifestyle & it made so much sense. It really does work. Luka is a truly amazing lady who is so passionate about what she does it will leave you speechless. Long may she continue.
C Mayes, Devon

I have been in expert hands with Luka. Her deep massages have helped a lot with my sleep problem and I have followed her suggestions on dietary matters with much beneficial effect.

It's a fortnight now since my return to Berlin. It's time to say thank you for two reasons: Firstly: your holistic massage freed me from this frightening tenseness of my heart, so that I was able to continue my holidays. Secondly: having come home I saw a specialist, as the tenseness had returned, who accidentally found out that nothing was wrong with the heart but the muscles around the ribcage had painfully contracted due to the cold and wet weather which I had experienced in Cornwall for a fortnight before coming to Totnes and had caused this feeling of angina and then later in Brighton and London it was mostly cold and wet again. After several examinations to exclude a near heart attack he tapped on my muscles around the ribcage and I almost shouted at him, what he was doing hurt so much. So we found the reason for this tenseness. You have, by intuition and your immense knowledge about the body and its ways, seen and 'healed', what 3 doctors before had not been able to address and one here found accidentally. I'm so grateful and thank you from my deepest heart.
Elfriede Kraemer. Berlin.

Luka works magic, and leaves me feeling completely relaxed and revived. She managed, very gently, and with no fuss, to help me overcome the horror I had had since childhood of touching a very badly scarred arm. And I'd just gone to her for a post-hike massage! Although I live in London, I make a point of seeing Luka whenever I stay with the Devon friend who introduced us. I can recommend Luka unreservedly
Liz Thomas. London.

I just wanted to thank you for another fantastic massage today. It is very hard to put my finger on just why you are so special. It is something to do with you being very attuned to how the physical and the emotional operate together, so that you are working with them both at the same time. It is a lot to do with how very well I feel after a session with you - as though my body has been coaxed not just back into life, but back into healthy living. And it is also something to do with the way you seem intuitively to be able to read me and soothe my various ailments, ancient and more recent, through your amazing massages. I have introduced you to several friends and members of my family - who have without exception (including - in fact especially! - those suspicious of massage) been similarly impressed and they all long to be able to come back to have you treat them again. I'm working on it! Many many thanks indeed
Caroline Shea. London.

I have had many varied experiences of massage and after a period of illness chose Luka purely on impulse, my instinct took me to the right place. Luka's very real skills, intuition, sensitivity and professionalism are complemented by her enthusiasm, vibrancy and kindness. She possesses a genuine ability to divine and meet needs that I had, as well as identify and enhance any strengths, none of which I was aware of before. I find Luka's treatment works on all levels and believe that she has a genuine gift. To 'recommend' Luka seems too mundane, she is unique and has a unique ability, she has my heartfelt gratitude.
Barry Wheeler. Devon.

The only recommendation I had of Luka was that she was 'good'. 'Good' didn't quite fit with the wonderful experience I had during and after the massage. She was professional and at the same time very heartfelt and intuitive, always one step ahead of what was to happen next concerning my body. The result was a feeling of deep relaxation, bodily lightness and gratitude for the work Luka had so lovingly undertaken. I would personally highly recommend her!
Diana Joy.

Let me confirm to any interested party that the treatments from Luka Carlisle which I was fortunate to receive, were of the highest order. The reflexology and aromatherapy massage were diligently and thoroughly applied. More importantly, I find Luka to have 'healing' gifts'. I unhesitatingly recommend her.
