COVID-19: support to help you through

Taking precautions for my clients

On March 15, 2020, I cancelled everything. I made the decision and staged cancelling all massage appointments, all training.

I felt my massage contact was a risk. Teaching "Massaging People Living with Dementia" was a group risk! What if I was a carrier? What if you were?

What if I transferred COVID-19 to a vulnerable person and many of my clients fall into the high risk groups. We know too little about COVID-19's transfer and we don't know if asymptomatic people are carriers. So with a heavy heart and a bit of panic I made a difficult decision to cancel everything.

I am lucky, I have a part-time job in the NHS as a therapy assistant, so am staying well informed about protocol and have a little income each month.

Stress management

Many of my clients rely on their regular treatment to manage their stress. During a time when we all need a little extra support I don't want clients feeling abandoned, but rather offer support which reflects the advice they find valuable in the discussions we normally have with each treatment.

Offering support to take back control

In order to regain some kind of control in this difficult situation, I would like to support my clients and community both locally and distally via the internet. That is why I am now offering phone call or video call consultations to current clients & new. You can book here, email me or call me on 07899 944650.

Someone to listen

Let's be clear. I offer no cures for COVID-19, but I will offer support emotionally and I will listen. Feedback from clients over the years has consistently been that I listen very well. We can then discuss any recommendations I have to support your health. This may include:

  • tips you can do easily for yourself at home
  • dietary advice
  • simple herbal preparations
  • exercise
  • relaxation techniques
  • safe essential oil use & advice - with a focus on supporting your immunity & respiratory system, managing symptoms of COVID-19 aiding recovery and promoting your mental wellbeing
  • sign-posting you on to other professionals to further support you
  • and other practical advice on all things holistic

Essential oils

Essential oils

I will also be selling essential oils. Some can break down catarrh and mucous, support immunity, ease coughs, all are antiseptic, some are anti-viral.

Again l wish to be clear nothing has been proven effective against COVID-19, it is a new disease, but there is evidence that previous viruses including colds, flu and Avian Flu have been effectively killed using some essential oils.

Bear with me as I get this new way of working up and running with my web designer Nigel and launch my new website sooner than I was ready for.

This is a new website and may need tweaks. If you come across typos or wish to feedback, it would be helpful if you could let me know so we can address it.

Thank you, stay well, stay safe and stay home if you can, warm wishes, Nicolle

COVID-19

Other treatments and therapies Offering help and advice

In addition to my massage treatments, I run courses on Massaging People Living with Dementia, sell aromatherapy products to support your wellbeing and offer health advice and natural treatments for many diseases and ailments.

Feel free to contact me regarding any queries or bookings.

Warm regards, Nicolle.

About Us

Nicolle Mitchell About The Little Massage Clinic

Hello, my name is Nicolle Mitchell.

I am a fully qualified Holistic Therapist specialising in Massage & Bodywork & have had an established practice in Cornwall since 1998.

My interest in natural medicine began in the early 1990s when I worked with children who had been traumatised through abuse and neglect. Play therapy and essential oils formed part of the therapeutic care of children in healing their hurt, coming to terms with their past & calming their present mindset.

Lured by my love of Cornwall I moved here in 1997 & qualified as a massage therapist. Since qualifying & starting my own business I have obtained further qualifications. I attend regular training and research constantly to keep up to date in my field.

Although I have a general practice where all are welcome, I specialise in treating people living with dementia, support people living with cancer, take a special interest in trauma and enable people with additional needs to enjoy massage.

In 2012, I won the Federation of Holistic Therapist’s (FHT) Innovation Award of Excellence for developing and delivering my course, “Massaging People Living with Dementia”. My work has also been recognised by being a finalist for the Holistic Therapy Magazine Inspiration Award, 2015; received a Special Mention in the Complementary Therapy Awards “Mental Health & Wellbeing” category, 2018 and I was a finalist for the FHT Complementary Therapist of the Year 2018. I trust this reflects my passion & aspiration to excellence in my work.
I deliver my course and presentations across the UK on my specialist subjects. Both my practice & teaching is about enabling recipients of massage to enjoy their treatment safely & with dignity. I like to agree goals with clients so we are clear about expectations and limitations of treatment.
I work collaboratively with a wide range of groups in the community such as schools, survivors of abuse & people who need extra support. Massage and Story Massage (link) can positively empower people to have healthy body boundaries, help calm people, enhance learning, be a safe way to regulate behaviour in a relational way and reduce bullying among children and young people. I use massage & story telling to tell social stories to address issues around bullying, attachment, trauma, adoption, the environment and social difficulties.
I believe that integrating all medicine, health & social care is the way forward. My vision is for everyone to have access to affordable health and social care, which should include complementary therapy.
I am very lucky to have such rewarding and diverse work. Every day brings new smiles, challenges and lessons ….. most of which my clients teach me.
In my spare time I love time with my family, walking my dog and immersing myself in the next part of my family’s project planting a biodiverse permaculture food forest. It certainly fulfils my need to spend time in nature & garden with the environment in mind. I love music, dancing, reading and oh yes ….. having a regular massage!
Have fun, be well, warm wishes, Nicolle

Green Policy The environmental ethos of the Little Massage Clinic

I have been passionate about our planet & sustaining it for most of my life. This has infused every aspect of my working practice since I set up practice in 1998.

In my practice, I have long used essential oils from sources that are organic, organically grown, naturally farmed or wild picked sustainably. My base oils tend to be largely organic & cold pressed to ensure you have an excellent product with maximum nourishing benefits. I mostly use a local supplier Kobashi, in Devon, who I have an excellent relationship with. Scott one of the owners and I have had great conversations about sustainability while I place orders. They are very particular about testing their products stringently for nasties such as insecticides and pesticides.

The bottles and jars I use to mix up my “TLC in a Bottle” are glass, and although these may be heavier to transport, I feel that they can be recycled more effectively more often than plastic. I also use aluminium rather than plastic caps where I can. The labels are recycled paper.

I rarely fill my bin at work, taking almost everything home to recycle, eg/ used couch roll makes excellent firelighter in my burner and the worms love breaking it down in my compost bin in the summer. I think we should all get more savvy where we can about composting and regenerating our earth to grow food healthily which in turn impacts our health. Education and community collaboration has a big part to play here.

I reuse stationary and packaging wherever possible & paper is either recycled or sustainably sourced. Good time management minimises travel and fuel consumption. I have a turn off policy, save water & use organically grown herbs from the garden for teas and treatments

I only purchase natural toiletries and cleaners and think about reusing packaging or containers wherever I can.

I bank with the Cooperative Bank as I believe they are one of the most ethical banks around who try to be careful to invest money in sustainability.

Personally, I try to be ethical but still need to make improvements & that is usually money dependent. We buy organic & local when we can, but I confess to the convenience of supermarket shopping all too regularly. Our family tries to avoid frivolous consumption of “stuff” choosing to spend our money on good food & preloved. I have used 100% natural toiletries for decades, often making my own low impact deodorants and buying locally made goodness like soap, shampoo & conditioner bars etc.

I have a steel re-useable water bottle (not aluminium due to traces that can be ingested). I feel “bare” if I leave home without it. I use recycled loo roll & buy natural products where possible. I try to eat ethically but know there is room for me to improve this.

This is the main reason we sold our house, where we had a very productive veg & fruit garden, including a mini polytunnel, & bought a 1.9acre field. It took us years to finally achieve and finally managed this in 2017. We have already planted hundreds of young trees as part of our mission to plant a permaculture food forest. We try different composting ideas & make our own liquid feeds. We feel we are just playing as our knowledge has many gaps, but we felt we needed to consume less & plant more, and that actions speak louder than words. We aim to improve our own food production, hopefully share what we grow & learn as we improve & learn, leaving a legacy our child could be proud to inherit.

As I learn and join up more dots, I will try & improve to reduce my impact on the planet in my home, field & workplace. Always learning … looking after me, looking after you, your family, our community, “our planet”.

“Nobody really owns anything. We give back our bodies at the end of our lives. We own our thoughts, but everything else is just borrowed. We use it for a while, then pass it on.
Everything.
We borrow the sun that shines on us today from the people on the other side of the world while they borrow the moon from us. Then we give it back. We can't keep the sun, no matter how afraid we are of the dark.” Deborah Ellis, award-winning author, feminist and peace activist
