about holistic massage & Bodywork
People have massaged each other since time immemorial.
Massage is a natural way to encourage the mind and body to rest, restore and refresh.
Massage reconnects you to your body and can be:
- Relaxing to relieve stress
- Deep work to release muscles and mobilise joints
- Sensitive – addressing emotional needs
- A new way to explore your body’s story
MEET OUR MASSAGE THERAPISTS…
I work both as a massage therapist and teach massage to a professional level at the Fold as part of the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork
I qualified with BCMB with a level 4 qualification awarded by the Massage Training Institute and am on the CNHC register.
HOW I WORK
I have effectively treated many many conditions over many years. I am interested in the relationship of each client with the condition they have.
It is this relationship and helping each client find their own body again which enables change to happen whether dealing with acute or chronic conditions.
I also massage people wishing to celebrate their life.

How I work
Fundamentally the approach with Holistic Massage is based around oil-based Swedish massage (
We each hold and manifest tension in different ways, physically and emotionally. All sessions will invite the mind and body to relax, this will enable one to think more clearly, to face the challenges and to share joys of life. There is no set routine, just careful attention to your individual treatment; releasing the tension and working with the whole of you to invite restoration of your inner balance.

I am a mother, a wife and a grandmother and I care passionately about the benefits of massage. When I retired from my previous job, I decided to train with BCMB as a massage therapist and have never regretted this. I get a huge amount of joy from seeing tired and stressed people leave their treatment looking so much more relaxed and happy! I have a Massage Training Institute Practitioner Diploma in Holistic Massage & Bodywork, Anatomy,
I am also a Childbirth & Parenting Consultant, and an Associate Midwifery lecturer – I love cooking, reading, running and singing!
Holistic Massage is a “mindful” massage treatment encompassing varied methods of touch; a fusion of different massage techniques used intuitively with each client – responding to the client’s needs at that moment in time. Holistic massage relaxes, soothes, reduces stress and eases tired aching muscles. It switches on the body’s parasympathetic nervous system, reducing blood pressure, slowing the heart rate and digestive system, and reducing stress hormones. Clients say that they feel relaxed and happier, less stressed and less “tight” after a treatment.
