Our therapists

Lindsay Hughes MTI – massage therapist

I have been in private practice since graduating from Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork’s holistic massage diploma course in 2016. My interest and specialism is in Deep Tissue massage, the way it works and how I can use it to bring the most benefit to my clients.

Specialisms: deep tissue massage, sports massage, remedial massage


SoniaSonia Meadows MTI – massage therapist

I began my first steps in massage training with Nigel in 2013 before qualifying in Holistic Massage through the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork in 2014.

I undertook additional training focusing on specific aspects of the body and emotional processing giving me a wide range of skills and techniques to draw upon. I enjoyed working at major festivals and events.

I love that every client is completely unique with their own challenges and requirements informing their session. I enjoy the combination of working with my hands but also using my mind and intuition together with being present in the moment with the client providing the treatment they have asked for.  Working in massage is the most fulfilling thing I have ever done and has really opened up my world to many fantastic experiences and people.

Mel Phillips MTI – massage therapist

My approach is integrative, person-centred and bespoke – bringing together my range of skills as feels most agreeable for each client I meet – promoting relaxation and balance while seeking to address specific aches and pains where needed. 

I graduated from the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork in 2000 and have undertaken a series of further qualifications, including sports massage and reflexology. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with queries.

Giacomo Sandri MTI – massage therapist

I strongly believe that everyone is capable of obtaining optimal health and live a fulfilling happy life. My path as a therapist started in 2017 after graduating in Herbal Medicine at the University of Lincoln. I then became a First Aid Responder in August 2017 and obtained the diploma in Holistic Massage at the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork in 2018. My experience as a therapist comes from my home-based clinic and festivals and events in UK and Europe. During my career I realised how close the relationship between body and mind is and especially how the alteration of one has a strong consequence on the other. My approach to the client is therefore holistic and person-centred. I give lot of importance to the psycho-emotional dynamics and how they affect the body.

Tracey Tigwell SMA – massage therapist

My main area of interest is in sports-related injuries and in 2018 I graduated from the University of Bath gaining Level 4 in Sports Massage Therapy, becoming a member of the Sports Massage Association.

Despite its name, Sports Massage is for both sportspersons and non-sportspersons alike. My treatments work on improving the quality of the soft tissues within the body. The blood supply is increased, releasing tension, flushing through lactic acid and realigning scar tissue. I work to redress imbalances built up through training and everyday activities, allowing my patients greater freedom of movement and consequently, a better quality of life.

Nigel Williams MTI – owner and massage therapist

For me, each session is unique. Everyone is different and their body changes from one session to another. I don’t know what will unfold during the course of a session, but I trust my intuition based on my connection with my client.

I think it’s important to really engage with people. My massage is at its best when I understand the individual and their needs. Einstein said “If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask”.

I love teaching massage, and watching people gain the confidence to use it. I teach the principles that I use in my own work.

Mentoring students is also very rewarding. Supporting them on a personal journey which asks us to examine our values as well as learning how to work with individuals and their bodies.
