Working from my clinic, I offer a range of holistic therapies in South Bristol where I provide clinical aromatherapy, aromatherapy massage, reflexology, holistic massage, Indian head massage, hot stone massage, clinical aromatherapy and Reiki.
As well as working with private clients of all ages in BS14, I also facilitate baby massage groups at several Childrens’ centres and work with several companies to make holistic therapies accessible for those who would usually be unable to receive them. I am a full member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT), Association of Reflexologists (AoR) and International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (IFPA) and can provide receipts for insurance companies who recognise these therapies and membership bodies in their therapy section.
Looking for an online course which teaches you to safely massage your baby?
I’ve been teaching baby massage regularly since 2008 in a variety of settings. Over the years I’ve been asked various questions, which I now incorporate into my course, and with consistently good feedback from my courses I decided to move my course online.
My online baby massage course mirrors my in house group, but it means you can choose a time which works for you and your baby. If you can’t make it to a group, or you don’t feel ready, then choosing an online course is a great way to safely learn to massage your baby at home.
How does it work?
As soon as you sign up you get access to week one of the course. You’ll receive the first video introducing you and your baby to some massage techniques and you’ll also learn how to set up your space, which oils are safe to use, what to do if your baby cries, and the benefits of baby massage.
Similar to attending a baby massage group, each week you’ll get access to new material. This gives you time to practice the course content without being overwhelmed. The course has been designed to build your understanding and confidence in massaging your baby and is made up of bitesize videos which are easy to access and can watched whenever you want. During the five week course you’ll learn the massage but also cover other topics, including how to adapt your massage, massage for common health issues and more.
By week four you’ll be completing a full routine and in week five you can download the full routine videos, so you can replay them whenever you massage your baby. Parents find their answers are covered during the course, but if you get any problems you can contact me for support. You’ll get access for the lifetime of the course, so you can revisit it as often as you would like.
You can also arrange a home visit for yourself or for you and your friends in Bristol and the surrounding areas. You’ll find more details on my home baby massage page.
