Mobile Therapist with Treatment Rooms in Axbridge
Serenity Massage Therapies was set up by myself- Jo Wilkins. I retrained in therapeutic massage in 2017 to help provide effective treatment for individuals. Having had numerous massages over the years by poorly trained therapists I got fed up of leaving a treatment still feeling achy and stiff - wasting time & money.
I had an eureka moment - I was feeling stuck in the current job I was doing & needed to do something else.. I could use my current experience & genuine interest in massage/wellness & get skilled/ trained up!
I love helping people feel well & want people to feel better for seeing me. I have an ITEC level 3 qualification in Therapeutic/Traditional Massage & advanced/further training in Deep Tissue Massage, as well as numerous other massage treatment courses I have become skilled & adept at.
I work intuitively by feel, touch & observation using the training/skills I have.
No two massages or clients are the same, everyone has different needs/issues & I do my best to address/work on these areas to get people back on track. I can advise on exercise, supplements, self care and all sorts of ways to help people look after themselves & feel better.
I have worked in IT for many years & appreciate the postural problems faced by many from sitting at a desk for hours . I was also a keen horse owner/rider from a young age so I am physically very strong - this helps enormously when doing a hands on job such as carrying out deep tissue massages. I hate having a tickly, ineffective massage which doesn't do anything productive or worthwhile. I want my muscles loosened, knots eased out & to feel like I've had a good workout without it being excruciatingly painful. Massage should feel like it's releasing tension, a really good type of hurt.. that's my aim when I provide a massage for clients.
I am a keen walker, love nature, gardening, the outdoors, horses, camping, reading and wild swimming. I have a crazy border collie who is my constant companion. I cook a lot of gluten free dishes including fabulous chocolate brownies.
I believe in taking responsibility for your own health and well being.
I have had an interest in functional medicine & worked as a food allergy tester for many years (as I had to drastically change my diet to get myself fit & well after having chronic fatigue)
I believe you have to do what you need to do to stay well. Learning about healthy choices that really work is important & feel prevention is definitely better than cure. Don't rely on pill pushing medical practitioners- you need to look after you, no one else can do this!
