Kaya Woods

Studio Owner & Director
Massage Therapist & Facialist


I'm passionate about what I do and the people I treat. I have over a decade of experience working as a full time therapist, as the principle therapist of a 4 star hotel spa, where I personally developed an extensive treatment menu offering luxurious treatments of the highest standard. I also held a busy private practice for several years in a chiropractic clinic, where I offered remedial, sports and restorative massage therapy.

I see my work as both an art and a science, and my intention with Essential Therapies is to offer treatments that are both highly effective, whilst at the same time being an enjoyable time-out ritual for my clients. In my pre-therapist life I studied the arts and I also have a background in organic farming.
I bring this love of nature, nurture and beauty into my current occupation.
