A little about me….
Hello there, my name is Tia Taylor and I am the owner and run Yellow Summer Therapies. Holistic therapies and natural living have always been my passion and I have been fascinated by it from a young age.
I was born and raised in South Africa where the sun was always shining and the beach was just a short walk away and I spent most of my childhood running around barefoot in the sunshine. Today I am still at my happiest when I am barefoot either on a sunny beach or in the garden and when we opened in 2016, I was drawn to recapture the warmth and sunshine of my roots, and hence ‘Yellow Summer Therapies’ was born.
Over the years I have studied various Holistic Therapy Modalities and have qualifications in the following Therapies:

I believe what you put on your body is as important as what you put in your body which why I make my own treatment products. I love to dabble in the kitchen creating new massage oil blends, reflexology waxes and creams and you can be rest assured that I use the purest, freshest, and most natural ingredients for all your treatments. There is always a batch of something fresh for sale at Yellow Summer Therapies, so please enquire when you next visit!
