Hayley D’Arcy

Hayley is a qualified Chinese Medicine acupuncturist; massage therapist, reflexologist and Wellbeing Coach. She is a naturalist, a self-care strategist and a passionate advocate of all things good; people, health, food and wellbeing.

Hayley is a member of the Complementary Health Professionals (CHP).

Hayley has vast experience and has developed an excellent understanding of the complementary health and wellbeing industry over the years, working as a practitioner and trainer in destination spas in the US and India respectively.

Since returning from India, Hayley graduated from the University of Westminster, London in 2013 with a BSc (Hons) degree in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. She continues her exploration into the effective practice of classical Chinese medicine, developing her learning of tangible acupuncture whereby sensations of achiness, heaviness, pulsating, warmth, tingling or spreading are all normal and can be felt through the needle locally or travel distally to other areas of the body according to the channels.

It was a reoccurring injury from her gymnastic days that was often exacerbated by some long periods of sitting at University that lead Hayley to focus on musculoskeletal disorders and specifically lower back pain, hip health and pain management. Hayley uses a combined skill set of deep tissue massage, acupuncture, cupping and stretches to support the development of a more agile, less achy body.

Hayley also offers a gentler more relaxing therapeutic massage, focusing on deep relaxation and using the time to work on pressure points and stretch out any tight areas. Hayley believes that regular massage, movement, and other self-care practices
pay off; physically, mentally and emotionally. She is invested and committed to her own self-care practices, subsequently providing a supportive hand to her Clients and their well being.

Hayley now offers CACI Facials at Shine, Church Street.

Hayley also now offers Bespoke 60/90mins treatments.
You have the opportunity to experience her skills combined, be it with Massage and Acupuncture, Cupping and Massage, or even 3 modalities in one session.

I just went for a massage with Hayley to relax and it was wonderful. I’m training for a marathon so my body is feeling extra heavy x by the fact I have a toddler who sleeps on my chest each night. Hayley cultivated an environment for me to feel relaxed whilst using a mixture of oils and hot stones to work on my body. I’ve left feeling lighter, more relaxed and supple. I’m such a fan that I’ve booked in again for before my marathon. Could not recommend more. Thank you so much Hayley!
Thank you Alicia. Much appreciated.

Hayley has now been treating me throughout several marathon training blocks and I am so grateful! The combination of cupping, needling and massage has really ensured I’ve been able to keep myself training and on the road despite a high volume of running. Hayley is now constant factor in any marathon training I do!
Thank you Sally. Its so great to know how much she helps you with your training!

I have been coming to Hayley regularly for the past year. Initially for an issue with my shoulder, but she's absolutely brilliant for all the niggles that have crept in. She is incredibly skilled and professional and I always feel transformed and sleep better after a treatment with her. Her massage is the best I've had for relieving general tension and she's used acupuncture to effectively remedy more troublesome problems. I can't recommend her highly enough!

I have a regular monthly deep-tissue massage and acupuncture appointment with Hayley. Her sessions have helped me enormously to stabilise the issues I have and she comes highly recommend. Hayley is welcoming and open - she responds very well to communication and has been key in helping me develop a fitness and wellbeing programme.

I’ve been seeing Hayley D’Arcy for 5 years and I won’t go to anyone else. After suffering from a back injury I wasn’t getting relief until I started receiving treatment from Hayley. She’s present, kind, thorough, and always willing to adapt the treatment to my needs. She’s just the best!
Thank you Savanna, we really appreciate you taking the time to let us know how much you value Hayley as a Practitioner.

I can highly recommend Hayley D’Arcy for both CACI facial treatments and massage – she is fantastic! She is a truly kind, thoughtful and intuitive practitioner who works with her clients to get the best outcomes. I have had CACI treatments over the years, so can happily say that Hayley really knows what she is doing and I’ve been super happy with the results. If you are not familiar with CACI – it is a workout for the face. With menopause I found my face (and everything else going south) and it was getting me down. It’s easy to work out your body, but other than spending 30 minutes a day doing face exercises (never going to happen) CACI is the best natural solution I have found. Having had a few sessions before special occasions over the years, I went for it and did a full course of CACI with Hayley. I was very happy with the results and it’s great to be able to recognise myself in the mirror again. Thank you Hayley. Hayley’s massages are a treat and I always feel that my whole nervous system has been calmed after one – I float down the road after one!
Thank you for the wonderfully detailed review Marnie .

I've been receiving treatments from Hayley for a significant period now, and the progress has been genuinely impactful. Her bespoke approach, which uniquely combines acupuncture, massage, and cupping, has been a game-changer for my persistent neck and shoulder discomfort. Each session is thoughtfully tailored to address the prevailing issues, and the improvement I’ve witnessed is substantial. What sets Hayley apart is her holistic understanding and the application of various therapeutic modalities to target problem areas effectively. In my case, the focus has been on alleviating the discomfort in my neck and shoulders—a prevalent issue I've grappled with for years. The combination of treatments not only addresses the symptoms but seems to target the underlying causes, promoting a sense of overall well-being. Despite the lingering discomfort in my neck, the progression towards healing, under Hayley’s proficient care, has been encouraging. I am hopeful that with continued TMJ and neck work, the path to full recovery isn’t far. The noticeable relief post each session is a testament to her adept skills and the effectiveness of her individualized treatment plans. Beyond her technical expertise, Hayley’s genuine concern for her client's well-being, her investment in continuous learning, and her ability to provide a calming, nurturing environment are what truly makes each session a therapeutic experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Hayley to anyone struggling with musculoskeletal issues or simply in need of a rejuvenating, holistic healthcare experience. Her approach is not merely about addressing the physical ailments but encompasses a journey towards achieving a balanced, healthier life.
Thank you Dilip. Having great reviews really help the amazing work of our Practitioners reach more people.
