A little more about Colette :
“The effect that massage has on people never ceases to amaze me. I feel incredibly honoured that my clients trust me to work with them and their bodies in this way. I continue to develop my skills by working with clients and furthering my knowledge through learning. I believe that there is always more to learn and hope my clients will benefit from my continued development as a therapist. I also have the joy of sharing my experience and love of massage with students who are training to become therapists by being part of the teaching team for BCMB.
Outside of massage I love spending quality time with family and friends, walking my Cocker Spaniel, Nellie, being outdoors, reading, log fires and good food!”
A little more about Pamela :
“I have known all too well the effects on the body and sense of wellbeing from accumulated stress. Through my work with clients and training at the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork I have found it very satisfying to develop a massage practice that allows me to work intuitively with clients to help them find some respite and relieve pain and discomfort – even when long held in the body.
I am fascinated with how touch can help the body release even long held patterns and I particularly love the sense of wellbeing it can bring to the whole person.”
Pamela is qualified with a Level 4 Diploma in Holistic Massage and Anatomy and Physiology from the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork. Pam continues to develop the range of skills and techniques that she brings to her practice through on-going professional training including Deep Tissue Massage, Therapeutic Hot Stones, and Holistic Facial Massage.
