I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, if you have a medical condition, an injury, or just want to relax, then massage therapy is for you.
At Bristol Mobile Massage we are getting busier and busier. This means it can be a challenge to accommodate clients who are feeling a lot of pain and who would benefit from a session within days (or possibly the same day) of booking an appointment. At the moment, some clients have to wait two weeks for an appointment. However, I have some good news, we are soon expanding, and we will be adding more people to the team. So, in the meantime, I would like to direct your attention to some of the other talented massage therapists in and near Bristol.
As you know, I’m a mobile massage therapist, and I offer many treatments, but not everyone is comfortable with the idea of someone coming to their home. (Yes, shocking, I know. Who wouldn't want to guest me in their house?)
So, if you would prefer to visit a massage clinic, I have listed the names of five massage clinics in and near Bristol. Now, these people are my friends, but I can assure you I haven't been bribed to recommend these businesses (feels slightly heavier wallet).
So, if you are looking for massage therapists in Bristol, then see below for five massage clinics in and near Bristol.
Bristol Massage Therapy
Bristol Massage Therapy offers massage therapy in Bristol. This massage clinic is based in Clifton and is run by my friend Victoria Armstrong. I know Victoria from college. She has always been helpful, and she gives great advice on how best to run a business. She is the one who normally kicks my butt when I forget to look after myself and rest.
Victoria is a qualified massage and pregnancy massage therapist. Her business offers a range of treatments for all types of people. And the one treatment that she offers, which is something I don’t offer, is a pregnancy massage. What’s a pregnancy massage? Well, a pregnancy massage is a massage taken during or after pregnancy. It is used to help expectant mothers to reduce anxiety, decrease back and leg pain, improve sleep, and decrease stress levels. Bristol Massage Therapy offers a service to suit every individual – they don’t have a one size fits all approach.
The Carter Practice
The Carter Practice is a massage clinic run by Adam Carter. He is an osteopath and a sport injury therapist. He practices at The Berkeley Centre in Clifton and The Family Practice in Bishopston.
Adam is another friend of mine. He is my tutor who taught me on the Sport and Remedial course that I finished last year. He is a skilled and experienced osteopath – a real inspiration to me.
Osteopathy is another treatment that I don’t yet offer. So, what is osteopathy? Well, it’s a treatment that helps to detect, treat, and prevent health problems. The treatment involves movement, manipulation, stretching, and massaging your muscles and joints.
White Grove Holistics
Kerry Sheahan is a registered massage practitioner and holistic massage therapist. She manages the White Grove Holistics, which is in Clevedon – I don’t offer my services in Clevedon. We studied together while on the holistic course, and I count her as another good friend. She’s a great therapist, and her speciality is treating Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). And because she also has this condition she can relate to her ME clients.
As well as being a specialist in treating ME clients, she also offers guided meditation classes. Guided meditation is meditation with the aid of a guide. Meditation is believed to help relieve stress, which can have a positive effect on your health and wellbeing. I have attended some of her workshops while we were on the holistic course together, and I would recommend them to anyone.
Sarah Hoare – Hypnotherapy and Massage
Sarah Hoare is another one of the many great massage therapists in Bristol. She is based at The Healing Rooms in Bishopston, and the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork in Clifton. Sarah was my tutor at the holistic course. She has taught me how to slow down with my massages and how a slow massage and being present can have a positive effect on the body and body tissue.
As well as general massage, Sarah offers hypnotherapy, which is something I don’t offer. What is hypnotherapy? Well, hypnotherapy is a type of therapy that uses hypnosis. It is believed to help conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, and skin conditions. Also, it is claimed to help you to lose weight, and quit smoking.
STTSW – Soft Tissue Therapy South West
Nick Garnham manages Soft Tissue Therapy South West (STTSW). He is a remedial and sports massage therapist based in Winford. He also provides spine manipulation and sports trauma management for treating pain and injuries. I have studied with Nick during the sport and remedial massage course. He has experience with pitch side work on rugby games, and he was a rugby player in the past, so he knows the risks of sports injuries.
So there you have it – five Bristol Mobile Massage Friends - five massage clinics in and near Bristol. If you are looking for massage therapy in Bristol, then please try one of the above massage clinics. They are talented therapists, and I have known each one of them for a long time. They are experienced and passionate about what they do (like me), so I am happy to recommend them to anyone.
