About us


Massage Therapist

My name is Serena and I’m a professional, fully trained and qualified, holistic massage therapist with over 6 years of direct experience in helping clients feel de-stressed and relaxed within their own bodies.

My mission is to provide an interlude and place of space and healing in our otherwise hectic lives.

I have always been ​fascinated by the deep interconnection of the physical body and emotional mind.

I’m particularly interested in the underlying mechanisms that trigger stress and anxiety in the individual and how bodywork techniques can offer significant relief from such symptoms.

I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all therapy.

My treatments are completely tailored to your needs. I will work on your physical body to relieve pain and tension whilst also taking into account your emotional and spiritual well-being.

I am passionate about the benefits of massage and the power of ‘stopping’ which brings the mind, body and soul back into balance.

Warmly, Serena

Massage Therapist

My name is Sarah Jane and I’m a holistic massage therapist, trained to diploma level at the Cotswold Academy. I have a background in Gestalt Therapy and Trauma Informed Social Work. I specialise in restorative massage that integrates body, mind and emotional wellbeing, using deep listening, energy awareness, trauma sensitivity, transparency and consent.

My approach includes Swedish massage techniques with light to medium pressure along with gentle compressions, joint mobilisation, gentle rocking and stretching which allow the body to naturally unwind and restore balance. The approach is particularly beneficial for whole body relaxation, encouraging deeper and easier breathing, supporting the Autonomic Nervous System to regulate and release so that clients can feel safe, connected and find deep rest.

I also offer ‘Deeper Listening Programmes’ which combine massage with some education about the nervous system, breathwork, meditations, and practices you can do at home to enhance the impact of your sessions. These can work really well during times of transition, for those currently working with a psychotherapist or for those wishing to boost their vitality/creativity.
