Testimonials

Here’s what some of my clients have said!

As a nearly 50 year man who spends most of the summer somewhat foolishly carrying heavy stuff around festival fields I inevitably twist, pull and jar various different bits of my body. Discovering that Claire's body-mending skills could coax my shocked and protectively tense muscles back into compliant functionality was a massive relief and may well have saved my business from mid-season meltdown. The fact that along the way she also dissipated my accumulated stress charge and generally made it all better during a soul-deeply pleasurable treatment hour or so was a massive bonus. Thoroughly recommend for ageing tradesmen and women and a hell of lot more effective than moaning to a doctor or masking symptoms with Ibuprofen.

"Claire is the best massage therapist in Bridport. I've had both relaxation and sports massages and they have both been very beneficial. I really recommend Claire and her location is perfect in the centre of Bridport.

Claire is a caring professional who really wants to help her clients. She achieves this by giving a great massage based on her questions and her listening skills. She is also great to talk to!

I highly recommend Claire for massage during pregnancy. She is extremely sensitive & thorough in her approach. She found knots I didn't even realise were there.

I have been lucky enough to have massages from Claire both during my pregnancy and at other times. During both types of massage, she really listens and understands the areas of the body that are under pressure, and gives a unique treatment that relaxes and releases. My pregnancy massages were amazingly nurturing and comforting, targeting all the stresses and strains that a baby puts on the body in a holistic way. She has treated the aches and pains for me caused by pregnancy, post birth and running. I can’t recommend Claire enough as a massage therapist whatever your need may be. She offers a lovely oasis of calm and restoration for busy lives and bodies.

Thanks to a short set of great sessions with Claire, I have regained mobility in my upper arms and shoulders after a number of years of unsuccessful treatments. Claire offers a very professional and empathetic massage, with an individual approach for each client’s needs and I would totally recommend her skills. Many thanks Claire.

My visits to Claire are one of the highlights of my month. She's empathetic, a good listener, very practical and most of all a very good massage therapist! I always come equipped away from a massage feeling so much better in mind and in body. Highly recommended!

I can highly recommend Claire as a pregnancy massage therapist. Her professional technique was complimented by her intuitive approach, the massage sessions really helped me to take time out to relax during my pregnancy, not an easy thing to do with work commitments and 2 small children to care for.
Louise Allen
Claire was professional and supportive not only with her expert massage technique but also tips on managing labour pains, fit ball exercise and relaxation techniques and tips for my partner to help ease labour pains. Claire also helped me connect with my unborn baby in my sessions by focusing on the baby and my body.
Kate
I never realised how much tension I hold in my face until Claire gave me a facial massage. Now I always get her to massage my face and I seem to breathe deeper and walk taller afterwards–like I’ve shed a heavy load.
Sarah, working mother
I’d never had a massage before and I was worried I wouldn’t be able to relax but Claire really put me at ease and seemed to have a consciousness of my emotional state as well as physical–I think she has an incredible awareness. On top of that, I’d had an appalling knot in my neck for years which Claire relieved straight away and it hasn’t come back since.
Marie, working mother
I get a lot of pain in my hands and arms because of my job and Claire has really helped me release a lot of tension there and increase suppleness. I also like her professional approach, she’s always really focussed on what she’s doing and the massage seems as important to her as it is to me.
Tom, builder
Incredibly relaxing, gentle, with just the right amount of pressure, I can quite honestly say Claire’s full body massage is the best I’ve ever had!
Adrian
A massage from Claire is a real treat! Claire's holistic and professional approach ensures your overall well being is taken care of. Any niggling problems or specific areas that you want worked on are acknowledged and discussed before proceeding... you will leave feeling relaxed and renewed and coming back for more!
