Holistic Massage

The oily one. A profoundly relaxing treatment to pacify the soft tissues, lubricate the joints and calm the mind.

Deep-tissue Massage

The intense one. Working with deeper layers of muscle tissue and fascia to relieve pain and  improve mobility. 

Pre- & Post-Natal Massage

The nurturing one. Helping you deal with the changes that occur during pregnancy, birth and post-partum.

Thai Yoga Massage

The meditative one. Thai yoga massage balances the body's energy through stretch and acupressure. Delivered through clothing.

Yoga Nidra

The dreamy one. A guided visualisation, with or without bodywork, to induce profound relaxation and healing.

On-site Chair Massage

The corporate one. Offering treatments throughout London which combine acupressure, Thai yoga and Indian head massage.

"Jamie is a gifted massage therapist who is highly professional and takes into account all of your needs. I was recovering from an injury and had a hugely positive, healing and good experience working with him over 3 months."

About me

The mind-body split has been a major theme in my life. Looking back, I can see that I've jumped back and forth between a focus on the physical and the mental. First I studied mathematics, then I became an actor, then I turned to writing, then I became a bodyworker. Finally, at the age of 42, I feel like I'm beginning to integrate the three realms of the head, the heart and the belly.

Massage helps bring the physical body into conscious awareness in a way that is itself healing and restorative but which also opens a pathway to the unconscious blocks and holding patterns that we start picking up early in life.

My approach is to treat each client as whole human being, comprised of body, mind and spirit existing in dynamic relationship with the world around them.

I believe painful massage is counterproductive, so I avoid it. Instead, I try to listen to the body, using only just enough force to help it let go of excessive tension and release blocked energies.

I’m the holder of a Level 3 Diploma in Holistic Massage from the excellent School of Natural Therapies and I have certificates in deep-tissue massage, Table Thai massage, on-site chair massage, and pregnancy and post-natal massage. I'm also a certified yoga teacher (RYT-200).

I’m a full member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists and carry insurance for both professional indemnity and public liability.
