Nigel Williams – owner and massage therapist
For me, each session is unique. Everyone is different and their body changes from one session to another. I have a range of techniques I can use, but I don’t know what will unfold during the course of a session. Even now I do things in treatments I’ve never done before – because it’s the right thing to do in the moment.
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”. My one question is often “How can I help?”
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. It’s a personal journey that makes various demands and asks us to examine our inner values as well as learning how to work with people and their bodies.
Mel Phillips – 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.
Lindsay Hughes – 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.
Bobby Taunton – massage therapist
I graduated from the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork in 2015. I like to take a professional and positive attitude to massage. Clients find me easy to talk to.
I have a wide range of massage techniques and the knowledge of when to apply them. I can bring the skills of deep tissue, specific remedial work, joint mobilisations, myofascial release techniques and stretches into my massage.
Most importantly though is my ability to listen and choose the right combination to suit my clients’ needs.
I provide appropriate after-care advice such as stretches, exercises and suggest ongoing treatment.
