About Richard

Massage Therapy


Richard Hardy BSc (Hons)

Being in practice for over 10 years and working from the Garden Clinic since 2012, Richard has a passion to improve the quality of people’s lives and ease pain and discomfort through a unique combination of therapy of Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue and the Emmett Technique.


Richard has always had a keen interest in massage therapy, after working and living in Thailand where he experienced many forms of alternative therapy and gained interest in the benefits of massage.


After graduating with BSc (Hons) in Health Studies from the University of Lincoln with careful consideration Richard began his training in massage and Emmett’s Technique, and he has experienced a positive change in his own health and wellbeing. He feels a sense of achievement when a client benefits from his treatment.


Richard works part time at Lincoln College as a Higher Education lecturer specialising in teaching on a DIPHE Level 5 Complementary Healthcare and Wellbeing course teaching Advanced massage techniques, principles and practices of Complementary Therapies and Integrated practice.


Richard has treated a wide variety of clients with a range of muscular skeletal issues: many that may have been caused by stress, poor posture and sometimes injuries. He has experience in treating both acute and chronic conditions, and specialises in pain relief.


Richard will look at the client as a whole - and not just the area of discomfort. From the information gathered at the initial consultation Richard will tailor a plan of treatments to suit your individual needs. Clients benefit greatly from this holistic approach. Working alongside an experienced herbalist at the garden clinic, means that he can effectively use a wide variety of essential oils, and balms for the best treatment outcomes.


We also offer the massage products that Richard uses for purchase from the clinic.
