- How do I find you?c
On Tuesdays you'll find me at Enso Healing Rooms (190 Cheltenham Road). If you are travelling by bus, services 70, 71, 73, 75 and 76 both north and southbound will drop you off just outside. It is also a 5 minute walk (down Station Road and turn left) away from Montpelier train station which is on the Temple Meads to Avonmouth route with regular services throughout the day.
On Thurdays I'm at Bristol College of Massage & Bodywork (109 Pembroke Road). If you are travelling by bus, the 8 and 9 bus services runs from the city centre through Clifton with a bus stop right outside the building. The college is also a 10 minute walk away from Clifton Down train station, which is also on the Temple Meads to Avonmouth service.
- Where can I park my car?
Enso Healing Rooms has 2 parking spaces behind the building, accesible via Cheltenham Lane. If these spaces are full, you can also park on the main road, Cheltenham Road, on any of the single yellow lines between 10:00am and 4:00pm and from 6:30pm onwards and pay using the meter on the pavement. It is not advisable to park outside of these times as the council will remove the vehicle to free the bus lanes. There are also parking available on Station Road at the same price.
Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork has a car park with 3 dedicated spaces. Also, the roads surrounding the college are restricted to permit holders or pay & display. If the car park is full then you can come into the college to collect one of their 3 permits (if available) or pay at a meter which costs £1 per hour for a maximum stay 5 hours.
- Can I lock my bike up?
Both BCMB and Enso have bike racks for you to lock your bike to, either at the front or rear of the building.
- What should I wear?
It is best to wear comfortable clothes so that you don't feel too restricted after your massage. During the massage, you can undress to the level that you're comfortable with. You will be covered with a drape at all times, and I will uncover the areas I am working on. If you are wearing jewellery I will ask you to remove items during the massage so that they don't get caught.
- What oil do you use?
I use unscented grapeseed oil or Biotone Advanced Therapy Gel (a mixture of grapeseed, apricot and sesame oil). These are both hypoallergenic but please let me know if you have any skin allergies so I can check ingredients.
