I would like to warmly welcome you to THE LITTLE MASSAGE CLINIC

Integrated massage

Integrated massage

At my clinic in Scorrier near Redruth, I offer integrated massage including aromatherapy, deep tissue massage, stress management & hot/cold stone massage.



As a practitioner who specialises in trauma & dementia, I have developed lighter nurturing touch techniques which may be better suited for some clients.



You will find me approachable, respectful, empathic & understanding. If you need any additional support when visiting my practice, please feel free to contact me in confidence and I will endeavor to ensure your visit is as comfortable as possible for you. If visiting the clinic is not possible, home visits may be arranged.

Donate towards a Massage for someone in need …. DONATE A MASSAGE

The pandemic has highlighted how many people are excluded within society. As one of the 2.9 million ExcludedUK who has received no meaningful financial assistance from this government I understand the impact of not being able to access vital support when it is most needed. I have witnessed close-up how deeply this has impacted people’s mental health as they struggle to make ends meet and watch their physical health decline too. I learned of people who chose suicide as they saw no way out.

Having supported thousands of people over the years towards better and sustained health I wondered what more I could do to help people who feel excluded from my service.

I remembered an award-winning inspirational scheme which was set up by a therapist in Edinburgh who asked clients and members of her community to donate towards a massage for someone who could not afford it. It works just like a suspended coffee scheme.

I know times are really tight for some people, so whether you can afford £1, a whole treatment starting at £40 or a course of treatments to help numerous people, I am deeply grateful for your help.

As part of my commitment to this social scheme, I will donate a treatment for someone for FREE each month.

I am working with local organisations to ensure the forgotten and excluded can access my service. This includes offering individual massage treatments as well as working with families using story massage to connect, express emotions and regulate healthily.

Thank you for your support. It means a huge amount to me to be able to help more people especially as the new emerging pandemic is a mental health crisis.

And if you need to access a FREE or part-paid treatment to support your mental, emotional or physical health, do get in touch, because we all need a bridge sometimes.

Look after each other, warm wishes, Nicolle

We explore how we can suffer with "touch starvation" and how we can use touch in little doses across the day to fulfill basic human needs especially with our children. We reflect on how COVID19 has highlighted our need for meaningful touch in our lives & how we need to maximise creating those opportunities for loving touch day to day to help minimise those behaviours which we find tricky.

COVID-19 Update: Yoo-Hoo! Wow! I’ve missed you!

I hope you and yours have been weathering our challenging times as smoothly as possible. For some the Covid-19 lens certainly magnified life’s challenges.

I am getting back to the work I love and hopefully start to support you manage your stress levels (goodness knows we all need a little more TLC at the moment!), ease accumulated tension and help with recovery from any illness whether that be physical, mental or emotional.

Please bear with me there will be some changes.

I will be contacting existing and new clients over coming weeks. Appointments will be starting from 1st September and will look a little different as they will be staggered to allow less contact between people in the centre.

Initially, only 25-30 min treatments will be offered to minimise contact & because I will be wearing additional PPE for both our safety and this will make a very physical job more challenging. It may be that you will wear a mask (although this is not compulsory) so I need to make sure you are as comfortable as possible during your time on the couch.

I will be conducting a 15-minute consultation before you arrive for your appointment by phone where I will do our usual check-in, plus an extra COVID19 questionnaire and run you through the new routine as you arrive for your appointment. Some of this can also be done by email.

I know massage is hands on, however, hugs, kisses & handshakes are off limits, but virtual hugs and handshakes are welcome - I believe even thinking about hugs is good for our health.

I have had to increase prices to cover the extra resources & time to it takes to implement safer practice & stringent hygiene procedures. All treatments will be £40 & only back or body massage is available for now – no face treatments are allowed. I will be asking you to pay either by bank transfer, via my website or to pop the cash in an envelope. However, my 24-hour cancellation policy is being relaxed temporarily. This is because I will not treat anyone with Covid-19 symptoms or if you have had contact with anyone with Covid-19.

Some things though won’t change. You can still expect a warm, compassionate & bespoke service. You can still rely on my listening ear during a treatment or simply enjoy the space to drift off. This time & space is for you to enjoy & recharge in the best way for you.

If you have any queries at all, please feel free to contact me on 07899 944650 or email and as ever do follow me on facebook for blogs, tips, news & views on all things holistic.

Here’s to the start of recovery on many levels, with your health at heart.

I very much look forward to seeing you soon, warmest wishes, Nicolle

Footnote: As a minimum, I am working in line with guidance from the government and my professional bodies to ensure treatments are as safe as possible for you.

Please note that although I hope for relaxation of procedures, please be aware that these guidelines may change very quickly depending on how the pandemic plays out.

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 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

Little Massage Clinic

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.
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
