About Mindful Touch Massage
Mindful Touch Massage opened in early 2016, independent and based just north of the village of Copredy, Banbury it makes the ideal choice for those wanting great service and reasonable prices.
My therapy room is a beautiful shepherd's hut located in the orchard at my home mooring. I am a fully qualified and insured massage therapist with a special interest in mindfulness and its application through physical therapy.
I offer and promote outstanding massage therapy at an affordable price as part of your holistic mind and body maintenance routine. The majority of my clients visit monthly or fortnightly and receive a generous loyalty discount.
Since opening I have helped many people with a range of conditions including generalised aches and pains, anxiety and depression to more specific conditions such as sciatica, impingement, rotator cuff, iliotibial band and piriformis syndromes.
I regularly treat sports persons as part of their training and post event routines.
I continue to undertake further studies around holistic therapy including Hot Stone, Deep Tissue and Lymphatic Drainage Massage.
These modalities are offered either independently or more commonly integrated into your remedial massage.
My aim is attentively listen and provide every client with the best massage for them, at an affordable price.
Mindful Touch Massage prioritises customer care eg. clear and timely communication, online booking, clear pricing agreed before your therapy, text reminders and aftercare advice.

Modern day life seems to conspire against our relaxed shoulders. We all spend too long hunched over a screen or steering wheel. Now is the time to readdress the strains of modern life with a wonderful back and shoulder massage.
I highly recommend adding a Soothing Lines, Scalp, Face and Neck to this treatment to include the whole of your neck too.

Add Hot Stones to your whole body massage for no additional fee.
For at least three millenium people have been using stone massage to cleanse the body, relax the heart, ground the soul and sooth the mind. However, it is a speciality treatment, that only certified therapists should perform.
The heat of these stones combined with the movement of the massage is deeply soothing and comforting. This creates a deeply warming effect on the muscles of your body enabling relaxation of the deepest layers of the musculature and a sense of wellbeing to prevail.
If there is a body part you would like leaving out, just let me know.
Specific Limbs Swedish Massage
Re-hydrate and Relax Hands and Arms We experience the world around us through our sense of touch using our fingers. Our hands manipulate everyday tools, being exposed to chemicals, water and wind, they never stop working. Show your hands you appreciate them with a tender touch massage. This hand and arm massage is fingertips to shoulders and includes thumb kneading of those tender tissues of your inner forearm. To get a feel of how lovely the hand and arm massage is try massaging your own hand and forearm. Now imagine how nice that would be to have a trained massage encompassing both of your arms. For hands that do dishes, cleaning, cooking, building and even extensive facebooking the hand and arm massage is a must for you.
Regain you bounce feet and legs massage Regain your bounce with a luscious legs and feet massage. Let your feet tingle with delight and your soles soar. Whether you're a keen cyclist and runner or a nurse who walks miles in the course of a busy shift. If you clean, cook, shop or push a wheelchair, pram or trolley your calves and thighs will ache at the end of a long day. If you put on your trainers or dancing shoes at the weekend there's still no rest for your feet.
Why not reward your hard working legs and feet with a massage, either as part of a whole body massage, back treatment, or stand alone treatment. This massage is hips to toes, back and front of thighs, calves, ankles and feet. Relax assured your modesty is maintained throughout apart from the leg receiving the massage you will be tucked under the warm fleecy blanket.
Soothing Lines Scalp, Face and Neck Our face is what we show to the world. Our friends can tell immediately what mood we are in; relaxed, anxious, tired or stressed.
Ease those worry lines from your eyes, loosen your jaw, rejuvenate your scalp and feel the tension dissolve from your temples. If you have not had a head, face and neck massage before, please do ask. From the top of your head to your shoulders this massage will leave you feeling wonderful. The massage includes a gentle neck and shoulder stretch, soothing facial effleurage, rejuvenating tapotement, relaxing kneading of your jaw, invigorating pressure point palpation and a deeply stimulating scalp massage. The minimum amount of oil possible is used on your face so you will look shiny not greasy when you leave. However I recommend removing your makeup before this treatment. I have some wet wipes for you to use if you need. This treatment works well even with a Hipster beard, so come on guys don’t be afraid to give it a go too.
Abdominal Kindness, abdominal massage. Our abdomen is supported entirely by our muscles. When did you last give these vital and hard working muscles a treat? A lot of people aren't aware you can massage the abdomen which is a shame because it’s a really beneficial experience.
This massage includes tender kneading of the large intestine, which helps relieve IBS in a gentle and natural way. Long sweeping movements are made under the last few ribs aiding respiration and feels great. The warming effects of my hands on your tummy is wonderfully relaxing and reassuring, promoting circulation and aiding digestion. Please do not be shy. Give an abdominal massage a try. To get an idea of how good this feels try lying on your back and gently massaging your tummy in a clockwise direction. Next run your fingers under your ribs from sternum to pelvis. Feel good? Imagine how great it will feel when done by a trained and experienced therapist.
Deep Tissue Remedial Massage
Deep tissue massage is a firm and manipulative treatment.
The musculature of our bodies is not a simple, single depth muscle system.
Whilst some massage does not engage the deeper layers, deep tissue massage does, requiring specialist training and anatomical knowledge.
For those suffering from chronic muscle tension and tightness, a deeper pressure is required. Using my forearms, elbow and knuckles a sensational massage can be achieved easing aches and pains.
Pressure and movement is used to engage the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia. Deep tissue massage also works with the myofascial connective tissues.
These tissues can constrict muscle movement, but this massage will ease adhesions allowing space and freedom for the muscles to work without painfully impinging on nervous tissue.
Remedial Massage Incorporating Hot Stone Massage
The use of hot stones to aid massage is an ancient technique and we instinctively know the benefit of heat in relaxing muscle.
The heat of the volcanic stones used in my hands relaxes the deeper layers of muscles and feels wonderful too. Hot stones dramatically increase the effectiveness of each massage stroke. I have been incorporating the healing heat of the stones into my remedial massage for some time and have been really impressed by the results my clients have experienced. I would especially recommend incorporating hot stones to clients who have significant chronic muscle tension, and those who find pure deep tissue massage rather intense.
Detox Massage (Manual Lymphatic Drainage)
This is a light touch massage with a profound effect.
The lymphatic system helps remove toxins, dead cells and unwanted chemicals from the whole of our body. It has a fundamental role to play in
the immune system. This whole body massage encourages old lymph to be removed from our bodies allowing detoxification and improved health to prevail. MLD can be especially helpful for :
Tiredness and feeling “run down”: colds, spots and lethargy.
Fluid congestion: swollen ankles, tired puffy eyes and swollen legs.
Chronic conditions: sinusitis, migraines, lymphoedema and others.
Digestive problems: excessive weight, anorexia and stress eating.
Cosmetic conditions: scars, burns and stretch marks.
Immune system disorders: chronic fatigue syndrome and IBS.
Lomi Lomi Massage
A Full Body Massage with a difference
Lomi is a Hawaiian word mean massage, repeating the word gives it double the power demonstrating just what a special massage this is.
The massage is performed on the whole body, and is like a dance with great harmony and grace.
Long massage strokes are used from toes to shoulders, often incorporating different part of your body simultaneously, resulting in a deeply relaxing therapy.
I completed my qualification in the autumn of 2018 and am proud to be one of the few therapists offering Lomi Lomi in the Banbury area.
