Urban Wellness Hub

Meet our regulars at the Hub

This page is dedicated to providing you with information about the Therapists and Practitioners that use the Hub as their working home.

We suspect the Hub is home to more therapies, treatments, classes, workshops, Master Classes and services than any other centre in Aberdeen and the Shire. So hopefully you have came to the right place to find something. If you want to get a bit more information, contact our Therapists directly or call us on

Float Therapy isn’t specifically mentioned here. But you can find details of the health, wellbeing, wellness benefits by jumping over to the Float website HERE. (it opens a new window)


Linda Ross

A registered nurse by background, and mother to three girls, Linda has always been in the area of nurturing and caring for people.

Training in Aromatherapy in 1995 while the kids were still growing up (and still nursing), Linda found a love of holistic healthcare. Since then she has trained in a number of modalities, and specialised in areas, such as hormonal and fertility bowen, TMJ Dysfunction, and built her reputation with many healthcare professionals.

Linda likes to make her treatments bespoke to the client, and will sometimes bring a number of modalities into the mix to get the best outcome for what the client presents with at the time of treatment (after discussing this with them)

This lady/mum, and kind hearted soul, always strives to help people, and can also be found working with Emma (outside the hub) with the Charity 5Rs project in Sue Ryder (working with those with MS and strokes)

Linda’s primary treatments are BOWEN and EMMETT techniques.

Emma Ross

Emma is a massive advocate of all things related to wellness, but also believes in everyone finding their “balance” in different ways.

Getting into the therapy and holistic side of things became really important after picking up a number of injuries herself during her sports and living a high-paced lifestyle.

Looking into the root cause of why someone is having an issue is what makes Emma tick, she continuously takes on professional development in all areas (personally and professionally) and after training in therapy based modalities she went on to train in yoga and yoga sports science to further understand functional movement in the body.

Having a sporting background herself (at an elite level) Emma enjoys work-ing with athletes (at all levels), and also is into emotional wellness in a big way…….so one minute you will find her running a high energy hot yoga class, and the next chilling out a class with essential oils, slow fascia re-lease movement …..and we wouldn’t have her any other way :0)

Fiona Ross

Welcome, my name is Fiona Ross and my life passion is shared through my two online groups, True Tribe North & essentially EMMETT.

With a background in Psychology and Counselling, I am passionate about supporting people to Live their Life in the present moment, to experience their Life to the full!

It excites me to see people grow, and to recognise their own strength – seeing the hidden blessings and learnings in their experiences to become more of who they already are!

I recognise the potential in every one I meet, and when people are ready to show up for themselves and take responsibility for their happiness there is opportunity for a true shift and transformation to take place!

My personal development journey began nearly 15 years ago when I started learn about energy healing, and practising meditation. I continue to Love and deepen my practise of self-compassion through yoga, meditation, and mindfulness to nurture myself.  I Love spending time with my family & friends, and fur family too.

I lead from the heart and Live my Life authentically.

I share my passion for empowerment through working with Angels and guides to support those I align with, by holding the space and creating an environment to allow them to relax to see the beauty in who they are, and focus on their natural gifts as they align to their true self.

My passion for empowerment also extends to animals too, supporting Horses and Dogs and their human companions with EMMETT Technique and therapeutic grade essential oils.

Shine your Light. Lead with Love. Fi

Unicorn whisperer, Angel, Nature, and Crystal Lover

Gaelle Conjaud

Hello, I’m Gaelle, I’m the French one of the team 😉 

I’m a Reiki healer, a 3rd year Shiatsu student at Aberdeen School of Shi-atsu, a Member of the Shiatsu Society UK and will be graduated at the end of 2018.

I came to Shiatsu as a guinea pig for one of the student in 2010 and knew then that I’d be learning Shiatsu. They say (well, Budha from some sources) that “When the student is ready, the Master appears” and I start-ed my journey of learning in 2015. 

I have worked with a lot of different people, hold a week day clinic in Stonehaven, do home visits, and now part of the Urban Wellness Hub team; I also worked with the SKI,
Karate Club on Hilton Street. 

I’m the mother of 2 wonderful children, I’m passionate, love learning new things, enjoy cooking anything that I have never tried, love nature and growing nasturtium, yoga, been a semi-professional dancer in my youth and love dancing.

My favorite quote is
“Lets meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love”
Mother Teresa.

  • Shiatsu

  • Qi Gong

  • Cupping
  • Moxibustion


Shiatsu is a form of therapeutic body work using soothing, stretching, tapping, kneading techniques. In Japanese, Shiatsu means “finger pressure”.

The fundamental concept of Chinese medicine is Ki (pronounced chi, energy flowing freely in the body).

Ki flows in specific pathways called meridians. The shiatsu practitioner “assess the flow of Ki” and facilitate its fluidity in order to maintain wellbe-ing.

In the case where the client’s energy is low or deficient, the practitioner uses specific techniques to enhance and vitalize the KI.

When the client is over-stressed, anxious, the practitioner employs techniques to disperse the “excess “energy.

Shiatsu works to alleviate conditions, restore balance and promote health.

Shiatsu works on physical, emotional and mental levels and can link symptoms that otherwise seem unrelated.

Donna McDonald

Donna says…. from a Pluralistic perspective, it is believed there is not one best method in counselling as every client is unique and are likely to benefit from different methods at different points in time through their therapeutic journey. That by working collaboratively, counsellor and client set out what resources, knowledge and experience they have and sift through this and find what works for the client at that time. As the client you are the expert in the room as you know what has worked or has not. No one knows you and your situation as you do of course, so you lead me and correct me whenever you feel I have misunderstood.

I focus on your “toolkit” as these are your resources in life. Things that have kept you going to this point. What helps, brings you peace, joy, strength etc. From here throughout our time together we will be adding and expanding this toolkit as I believe that by having a range of resourses for different challenges, for different situations, no matter where you are you are equipped to manage it and stay in better mental health. Preperation and recovery for when times are hard.

As a Registered member of BACP (British Association of Counsellors and psychotherapists) www.bacp.co.uk I abide by their ethical framework. I have regular supervision to discuss my work and to ensure I am abiding by above mentioned guidelines. A counselling session lasts 50 minutes and would be re-booked at the same time and day each week if you decide to go through with counselling at this time with the ability to be flexible.
A free consultation is available to explore whether I am the right counsellor for you at this time.

Ruth Natanson

Originally training as a scientist, I have had an interest in aromatherapy, energy work, and herbal medicine for over 25 years.

Initially pursuing a career in the oil & gas industry, then latterly a strategic director of a social care organisation. I have experience of supporting people with mental health illness, learning disabilities, substance misuse issues, and those living with dementia.


On my own journey I came back to therapies due to increasing stress levels and my complete inability to achieve a healthy work/ life balance, in addition to some personal losses and trauma.

People have described me as a very intuitive therapist, and I am certainly compassionate and can show empathy. I like to draw on my experience of all healing modalities (including meditation and yoga) to tailor treatments to meet the individuals’ needs.

After much of my own personal development, I am passionate about supporting people to live as happy and fulfilling a life as possible.

Gillian has been passionate about health and wellbeing for many years and now shares what she has learned with adults, children and their four-legged friends.

Initially, as a musician, she experienced performance anxiety and used deep relaxation techniques with good success.

As teacher and head teacher, the health and wellbeing of pupils and staff was her main focus, as well as encouraging health and wellbeing within the local community. Gillian shares her positive outlook on life, in her role as Mum to four and Granny to seven.

Personally, over the years Gillian ‘dabbled’ in mindfulness, meditation and yoga, alongside training and competing in triathlons, time trials, 10ks, half marathons, even running the London Marathon in 2012. However, in July 2015 Gillian experienced Septicaemia, Septic Shock and subsequently spent four days in Intensive Care, followed by a very long, challenging recovery, culminating in early retirement from education in 2018. The chronic fatigue has mellowed and is now mostly manageable. She is now looking forward to this new chapter!

It was mindfulness, yoga, acupuncture and other therapies that got her through the past few years, to where she is today and Gillian believes it is her mission now, to share the tools she has used, so that when others experience tricky times, they will have their very own ‘tool kit’. Her ‘tools’ include EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)/Tapping, Reiki, Mindfulness and 16 Guidelines for a Happy Life, using the outdoors and woodland skills as often as possible.
