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.


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 focused tissue release to others that are very relaxing. 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.

Aftercare may be offered, with different exercises.

A Treatment - What To Expect

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

  • Before you come to see me I may 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. This may also happen before your first massage
  • 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
  • If you would like me to wear a mask, I am happy to
  • Every item used in the massage room has multiple layers that can either be washed or wiped down with anti-bacterial cleaner with the appropriate resting time for the disinfectant to take effect
  • A small open window creates 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
  • 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 have had all my Covid Jabs and this year's Flu jab
  • If you feel unwell (persistent cough, fever, headache, sneezing, etc) or are worried that you may have either come into contact with or contracted Covid, please do not hesitate to contact me. Please do not attend your appointment. I will under these circumstances waive my late cancellation fee no matter how late you call
  • Your massage will be amazing, welcome!

An absolutely amazing experience – I felt totally relaxed and at ease and I was left feeling so much better than I had in a long time.

Catherine’s hands are magic and wishing purely to relax, her very specific awareness of muscular needs is outstanding.

A very relaxing massage in a professional yet welcoming environment. Very thorough and therapeutic.

It’s like being massaged with a chill out pill. I instantly begin to relax and leave the session feeling stress-free in body and mind.

Catherine is highly recommended, her professionalism coupled with expert knowledge and practical techniques makes her the goto holistic massage therapist in Bristol!

I love Catherine’s massages I feel relaxed and rejuvenated after spending an hour with her. The room is very relaxing as is Catherine’s calmness she is also very professional and knows her stuff.
