Finding Calm In Your Busy World

I am a MTI qualified practitioner, and therefore belong to an elite group of practitioners recognised for their unparalleled skills and professionalism. My qualification is considered to be the gold standard for holistic massage training, and is recognised by the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). All treatments are individually tailor made to suit you.

About

I am passionate about massage because I believe that touch is fundamental to our existence.

Massage, if perceived as caring, gentle and kind, can encourage the feeling of being safe, secure and accepted. It can also help us in our daily lives with the reduction of stress, increased movement and facilitation of healing in the body.

I believe a holistic approach to our everyday lifestyle challenges is essential. I love what I do because it ticks all my personal boxes, the main one being an absolute desire to help all my clients in any way I can.
 

I am affiliated, or have a membership to the following:
 

Massage Training Institute

The Massage Training Institute is my Governing Body and can help, advise, support and offers further training opportunities. 

They are one of the only Institutions who has stayed pure to the massage industry. They promote their qualified massage therapists as working with sensitivity, creativity and integrity.

 

Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork. Based in Bristol, the College gives me monthly supervision sessions, mentor support, and continuing professional development which means that I can choose to attend a huge variety of courses increasing my knowledge and methods.

Holistic Massage

Holistic massage differs from other types of massage as it takes a whole-istic approach to your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Your massage will include a range of different touch techniques, which can vary from deeper tissue release to others which are deeply relaxing. This will produce a sense of connectedness. You will feel that the massage is working 'with you', rather than having it done 'to you'.

Holistic massage notices the sensitivities, stresses and strains that your body undergoes on a daily basis through a two-way verbal and touch conversation.

Massage may be found to bring relief from everyday aches, reduce stress, increase relaxation, address feelings of anxiety and tension, and aid general wellness. It can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries.

Aftercare may be offered in order to keep you focused on the treatment you have received and exercises can help to continue the healing in your body.

A Treatment - What To Expect - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Are you a little worried about having a massage?
Don't be, this is what happens.

  • Before you come to see me I will call you prior to your appointment so that together we can gather some information including personal and medical details, and can discuss how I can best help you during your session
  • A quick hello, shoes off, zap with a contactless thermometer, and we can proceed. You are requested to wear a mask during the massage. Remember I am here to guide you through the process
  •  I will be in the room while you get undressed, however for your privacy, I will hold up the drapes and blankets in front of me, until I know that you are lying comfortably on the couch. Please place your clothes on the chair
  • I will be wearing PPE during your massage, this currently includes a uniform, mask and sometimes a visor
  • Every item used in the massage room has multiple layers that can either be washed after yours and every client's massage, or wiped down with anti-bacterial fluid with the appropriate resting time for the disinfectant to take effect
  • There will be a small window open to create ventilation and a flow of air through the room
  • After your massage I will go to wash my hands, while you get dressed. I will not return until you are ready and dressed
  • Payment by bank transfer or cash, please
  • The massage oil used is currently fractionated coconut oil. It is hypoallergenic, for sensitive skin and is not scented
  • If I am feeling unwell, I will cancel appointments and endeavour to rebook. I can confirm that I am 'double jabbed'
  • If you feel unwell (persistent cough, fever, headache, sneezing, etc) or are worried that you may have either come into contact or contracted the virus, please do not hesitate to contact me. Please do not attend your appointment. I will under these circumstances waiver my late cancellation fee no matter how late you call
  • Your massage will be amazing, welcome!
