About Benedetta Gaetani d’Aragona




Hello!  I am Benedetta Gaetani d'Aragona,  a highly qualified registered massage therapist, advanced Emmett practitioner, and bodyworker with over 21 years experience in my field


Italian-born, I have made my home in Scotland, and I offer a wide range of massage therapies to improve health and enhance the quality of life, both mentally and physically. I have a broad knowledge of health issues including stretching and fitness regimes.

With a background of leading treks in the Himalayas for ten years and as a marathon runner, I recognise the importance of bodywork for those who enjoy sport and activity.  I have worked as a massage therapist in a sports clinic and in a GP practice, and these days I actively collaborate with several colleague practitioners - physiotherapists, chiropractors, sports coaches, and with the staff of Run and Become.

Training and registration

I am a full member of the Scottish Massage Therapists Organisation, Scotland’s foremost massage standards body, and have I completed advanced training in:

I have also completed specialist training in Hyperton-X (a muscle energy technique), and trigger point release.

I am a registered massage therapist with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the UK regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners.

I am fully insured with Balens Insurance Brokers and holds an up to date (2021) Emergency First Aid Certificate.

I am registered under Disclosure Scotland’s Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme.

I love exploring my field and take every opportunity to keep up to date with new and innovative ideas. I am grateful to the many advanced practitioners and renowned international bodywork masters with whom I have studied.  Click on the links below for further information and, in some cases, videos demonstrating the techniques they teach:
