My background in massage
Several years ago while working at an office job I experienced the benefits of massage for the first time. I enjoyed the relief from back ache and increased range of motion in my upper back and shoulders which were stiff from rock climbing and sitting at a desk all day. My body and mind felt completely relaxed and I had a feeling of well being that was difficult to put into words. I felt inspired to explore massage further and decided to learn to do it myself.
I gained an ITEC Diploma in Holistic Massage from the Beaumont College of Natural Medicine in Wells, UK, in October 2011. Shortly after this I began working as a self-employed mobile massage therapist.
I have had experience massaging clients with a wide variety of different needs, from climbers, rowers and other keen fitness enthusiasts, to people with busy work schedules needing to unwind, to shorter relaxation massages for people at festivals and markets.
Contact info and prices
I am currently based in the Bristol area and am mobile with a portable massage table, so you can enjoy the treatment in the comfort of your own home. A typical treatment lasts approximately one hour. Please allow a little longer for the initial treatment, as we’ll have a chat first to discuss your specific needs so that you get the maximum benefit from your massage.
I will provide towels, so all you need to do is ensure the room is well heated.
Please let me know if you have any allergies, injuries or medical conditions when booking.
My current rate is £35 / hour and I frequently do special offers with flyers and Facebook posts. ‘Like’ my page below.
“Tess’s gift in the art of massage has that ‘Touch for health’ quality that encourages me to reconnect with my place of peace and calm … pure bliss”
“Tessa is a very caring and professional massage therapist. The massages she gave me eased the pain in my neck and shoulders and helped alleviate the problem. Thank you Tess.”
“I use Tessa Williams Holistic Massage which is amazing, she is very professional and removes the stresses and knots. Tess even helped to ease the pain in my back when I slipped on ice. That was unbelievable, as she felt where the pain was without me having to tell her and slowly massaged and eased the pain, by the end of that session my back pain had gone. I highly recommend her and endorse her methods 100%.”
