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.

What simple change can improve your posture?

Our posture – the way we hold and move our bodies – depends on our activity, our habits and our emotional state – and it can change.

Posture is a recurring topic for us. People wonder if poor posture is exacerbating a problem. Sometimes we notice a pattern suggesting posture is a factor. Poor posture can cause problems, but it’s also a symptom. If we want to improve posture it helps to remember that is the result of circumstances – physical and psychological.

Unhelpful inherited values

We’ve all tried “standing up straight” only to flop back down a few moments later and give up. It’s easy to conclude there is no point trying.

There are so many things wrong with “stand (or sit) up straight” it’s hard to know where to begin. Firstly it assumes there is good and bad posture – not very helpful. Secondly the negative tone has echoes of a parent or militaristic school teacher. It makes us think that it’s our fault we have “bad” posture.

When we do try to adjust our posture we’re probably not sure what we’re doing. We have no route to progress and nothing to guide us. We didn’t decide how we would like our posture to be and how to achieve it. It’s also really hard work. We’re trying to force ourself into a shape we’ve labelled “good” posture and soon stop because it’s so much effort. When we do stop our body reverts back to the position it was in before. We call it failure and don’t want to try again.

So, let’s take a more sensible look at what forms our posture and how we can work with it.

Our posture isn’t set. Our bones are dynamic – moved by our muscles. Our spine is a series of joints, each with a range of movement. Habit and how we feel are also very important. We are generally not aware of our posture. Our unconscious mind takes care of it. Luckily for us though we can take control and with practice change the pattern.

You can change the position of your body more easily than you think. The trick is to find a position which is comfortable and looks good then you will want to adopt it. It’s then a matter of forming new habits.

It helps to look at the whole body. The angle of our pelvis, for example, is going to affect our lower spine, which in turn affects the upper body shape.

A positive attitude is important. We are moving to something better for ourselves that we have chosen.

Because it’s hard to do this on your own I have designed a practical workshop to look at your posture, see how you feel about it and how you would like it to be, make some suggestions and together come up with one or two easy things you can repeat frequently throughout the day – positive steps towards the posture you want.

Posture workshop

My posture workshop is to help you
– know where you are starting and what you are trying to achieve
– feel confident about what you are doing
– find something sustainable you can integrate into your everyday life
– find something realistically achievable that will give you results
– feel supported in the process and have something to guide you

What happens in the workshop?

We look together at your posture and talk about how you see yourself and how you would like to be. Using photography helps.

Then I help you find a new posture – something you feel good about. Again we can use photos and see how you feel when you see yourself.

You’ll get chance to try your new posture – take it for a test drive. We want to make sure it’s going to work from day 1.

Once you have found and practised your new posture, you can leave with a sense of purpose, direction, realistic expectation and the photos to remind you, inspire you and guide you. I can also check up to see how you are getting on.
