Riche Klue

Riche KlueRiche’s interest in massage therapy came from having a fascination with anatomy and physiology, different forms of holistic healing and the body’s amazing potential to overcome adversity through positive therapeutic touch

Originally from South Africa, Riche graduated from the Utopia Academy in 2010 having graduated from a 3000 hour programme, before passing board exams to become a licensed RMT practitioner. As part of her training she participated in student clinic being mentored by deeply respected teachers in the RMT field on various techniques and critical thinking skills so as to treat safely and effectively for a wide range of conditions.

Riche is known for her kindness and professionalism. She takes her clients well-being and treatment to heart sourcing the various ailments and working with her clients to change habitual patterns in a non-invasive manner.

“She is truly at a different level!!”
“I started seeing Riche Klue recently for pain due to a car accident I had earlier in the year. She is absolutely fantastic! Incredibly knowledgeable and very focused in pin pointing what areas the pain is stemming from and adopting various approaches to treat. I had seen a few other RMTs prior to Riche and what a difference. She is truly at a different level!! cant wait for the next treatment and wish I could see her more than once a week to work though the pain I currently have…….”

“…really takes the time to understand your needs…”
“I had several massage appointments with Riche Klue and I have to say she is really good. It’s rare to find someone who gets excited about finding knots!! You know you enjoy your job when…..She knows her stuff. I’ve been to many many rmt’s over the years and she is the first person I can say really takes the time to understand your needs and attend to you. I’m a very big critic, ask my friends, Simon Cowell is probably just a bit stricter, so when I say something is good, it’s been evaluated thoroughly.”
