I've been very quiet since I started this blog as I've been building up my client base and spending a lot of time in Brighton at the incredible Jing Massage Clinic learning new skills including some incredible clinical massage techniques.
The tutors at Jing are really special - they've all got amazing massage careers but, even more importantly, they're passionate about what they do and about passing their knowledge on to other therapists. The exciting news is that one of my tutors, Minia Alonso, lives close by in Bristol and I'm SO excited to be joining her as part of her team at Bristol Massage Clinic!
I had a knee injury early last year and, looking for a Jing therapist in the area, I was thrilled to learn Minia was in Bristol and her massage made all the difference to my speedy recovery. She's such a wonderful therapist and has a really sound massage background with loads of experience and I'm always thrilled when I know she's going to teach on the course as she has such a passion for teaching. She's such an intuitive masseuse, with a gentle touch that has an incredibly powerful effect on the body and so I'm blown away that she's chosen me to be part of her team at the new Bristol Massage Clinic.
Based in Clifton, the clinic is a beautiful oasis of calm, in the basement of Clifton Dental Studio
on Queens Rd. If you think this is an odd mixture, it's actually the perfect fit because, as well as all the amazing massage techniques offered by the team, Minia is a specialist in TMJ, the temporomandibular joint, massage of which can help with jaw pain, ringing ears, teeth grinding, chronic headaches and, in fact all sorts of problems throughout the body, not just the jaw.
I'll be undertaking the TMJ course in the autumn and I cannot wait as it's so fascinating. Under Minia's expert supervision I intend to follow her lead and become a specialist in this really important area.
In the meantime, I can be found at Bristol Massage Clinic, Clifton Dental Studio, 92 Queens Road every Tuesday from 4th September offering a wide range of massages. I can't wait to start working as part of Minia's team!
