About Mariette Lobo

I began working as a Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) practitioner in Glasgow in 1997. I built up a multi-therapy, complementary healthcare practice, initially at Napier’s Glasgow and then at The Buckingham Clinic before setting up independently as Body in Balance Clinic.

I specialise in The Bowen Technique, coMra Therapy, The Emmett Technique, Hypnotherapy, Indian Head Massage, Reflexology, and Reiki. I am a Master Teacher/Practitioner in Reiki.

Visit my Clinic page for the full list of therapies.


In addition to my therapies practice I also offer Body in Balance Training and I am a visiting lecturer with the Bayly School of Reflexology (Edinburgh). I previously taught at colleges in Glasgow and Kirkcaldy, and pioneered the use of complementary therapies in the field of cancer/palliative care at the Beatson Oncology Centre and TakTent Cancer Support. I am passionate about raising public as well as medical and professional awareness of the benefits of complementary therapies.
