Personal Profile


"I have a background of working in scientific research at the University of Surrey with Dr Marie Coates and Dr Frank Ward in the field of Gnotobiotic within the Toxicology Unit of the Robens Institute, little did I know what the future would hold at that time. Later, when I had a young family I worked in a Pharmacy to earn a few extra pounds and keep my hand in - so to speak. My boss gave me a wonderful opportunity to study and become a qualified pharmacist for whom I was very grateful but I had seen and experienced the amazing effects of complementary therapies and opted to develop down this route. Initially I qualified in 2002 in Anatomy and Physiology (A&P) and Indian Head Massage. Delighted with the amazing effects of this treatment I was inspired to further train in more detailed A&P and Body Massage. I then decided to develop my skills in order to improve the benefits for my clients and trained in Aromatherapy. Then my work began within the NHS alongside cancer patients at the Fountain Centre, working in conjunction with The St Lukes Cancer Unit at the Royal Surrey County Hospital as well as working in Grayshott Hall Health Spa so I felt I had a good balance. Seeing the suffering of some of my hospital patients I was inspired to study Hypnotherapy and NLP, giving a more holistic approach - I thought to help with pain relief, body image and the other numerous complex issues that develop during the cancer journey, this has led into a whole new field of hands off therapy... Then again, as life progresses so do we and I further trained in a dance and movement therapy called Healthy Steps - The Lebed Method which helps people with lymphoedema, arthritis, ME, restricted movement as well as other chronic conditions, I have now developed this further into Dancing for Health. Other specialist training includes pregnancy massage with use of essential oils which is so wonderful for mother and baby......and so my journey continues with a passion to help people using the various tools I have acquired to best meet the needs of all my clients - is there something I can help you with?"

Patient testimonials

"Rosie Gardner is a great masseuse and I should know – I’ve had some knot removers over the years and she is up there with the best. Intuitive, calming, professional, thoroughly nice to have around and bloody good at her job!"

Maureen Lipman CBE

"Through the wonderful Fountain Centre I met Rosie when I went for MLD.  She has helped me in many ways of course first & foremost with the Lympoedena but also is very understanding in my not so straightforward journey .She has helped me overcome many things with a smile & encouragement. I do not know what I would have done without her,she has made my life easier and i really look forward to the sessions."

"I have had two excellent massages from Rosemary Gardner. After both sessions I felt relaxed and aware that the aches I have had for so long were at last being addressed. I can thoroughly recommend her for anyone with neck, shoulder or back ache similar to mine."

M.D.   Farnham

Moving Picture Company
"Rosemary Gardner has been providing aromatherapy sessions at The Pines Residential Care Home for Adults with Learning Disabilities and during this time has provided an excellent and professional service at all times. The residents who have received aromatherapy have all benefited hugely from this therapy. They are relaxed after each session with improved mobility and flexibility in their movements which brings marked improvements in their demeanour. They are always keen to participate in these very pleasant sessions and very much enjoy the sensation of massage with aromatic oils."


"I have had a fear of flying for many years. With Rosemary's help and her amazing Hypnotherapy techniques, I was able to fly 10 hours to Florida, going through 3 hurricanes over the Atlantic, and it didn't bother me! I have no idea whether the fear has left me completely but Rosemary has given me the techniques and tools to enable me to enjoy the start of my holidays and not fear them! I can't recommend her enough."

Maria, Guildford

"At a time of great stress in my life, Rosemary used her aromatherapy skills to create an oasis of peace and calm for me. I found that I could visit this sanctuary in my mind when I needed it, my life was significantly improved"
