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.
I combine many massage techniques to guarantee a bespoke treatment to suit your needs with every visit; as your needs change, so does the treatment.
Treatments may involve deep tissue release, acupressure, classical massage, aromatherapy, lymphatic drainage, lighter nurturing touch techniques & more.
"Destress yourself and calm your children with online Story Massage sessions.
Learn how to use your hands to tell stories in fresh, fun ways in the comfort of your own home.
Help children control their own behaviour, promote learning and nurture each other.
As an adoptive mum, Nicolle understands attachment, trauma and blocked care issues and can provide specialist support for families, carers and their children.
A powerful combination of hot stones with integrated massage techniques.
The stones warm muscles melting away tension and, if needed, cold stones to address inflammation. Hot stone massage brings about a deep rooted sense of balance and relaxation, surrendering your skin to the full impact of essential oils.
This ancient therapy is relaxing, boosts immunity and leaves you with a wonderful sense of wellbeing.
I offer this treatment as an ideal solution for treating water in the ear (surfers and swimmers have found this highly beneficial).
It can also treat sinusitis, rhinitis, excess ear wax, narrow ear canals and other ear, nose and throat problems.
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
We have been seeing Nicolle since 2008, nearly 15 years now. We are in our 70s so our regular monthly massage treatments from Nicolle form a significant element in our health and well being. Nicolle combines a perfect blend of formal professionalism, kindness and creativity. She takes careful notes, checks our current needs and works with us to provide the most suitable treatment. Her use of oils and the treatment creams she makes herself are excellent. We particularly recommend her ‘OOh Ah cream. 5 stars!
Nicolle has a way of making you feel seen and heard from the beginning of your aromatherapy massage appointment. There is authentic care for your holistic well-being and a genuine connection to what is important for the client in the moment. This is tended to by her extensive knowledge of oils and intuitive massage skills. I have enormous gratitude for the time spent in therapeutic massage with Nicolle.
I’ve been coming to see Nicolle for many years now. I have two chronic pain conditions and a chronic illness. A monthly massage forms an integral part of my pain/illness management. My joints experience less pain, I’m able to move more and enjoy my body in exercise. Even more than this, Nicolle holds space for the whole self. Through touch, aromatherapy and compassionate listening, I continue to experience profound healing through her. Always grateful for her expertise and wisdom.
It is hard to believe that I have been benefiting from your wonderful therapy for so many years! From the very beginning, you brought great relief to my aching muscles, especially my back, neck and shoulders - the bonus was hearing your soothing words of wisdom about how to use oils to protect them from the demands of a busy working life. Throughout this journey with you I have been so impressed by your professionalism, your skills, your great knowledge of the benefits of essential oils - and your kindness. Even now, in my 70s, still fit enough for walking, gardening, carrying heavy things, just coping with the stresses of modern day living, I am so thankful for your help in keeping my mind and body in good fettle. I was particularly grateful for hearing you give a talk on how massage can help people with dementia. It came at a time when my dear mother had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. It was extremely helpful to me in understanding how to respond to her, in a way that helped both of us, and made our relationship much easier in her last years. I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for me for all these years, and always look forward to our next appointment! Long may you continue to bring sunshine into other people’s lives.
Outstanding therapist – one of the best massages I’ve had (and I’ve had a lot!). Nicolle is an outstanding therapist. Her treatment is the perfect combination between therapeutic massage & deeply relaxing energy. She’s also a fantastic aromatherapist and blends the most beautifully tailored blends (after a thoughtful & thorough consultation). As a fellow massage therapist, I have no problem whatsoever in recommending Nicolle. She’s not only professional & highly trained, but is an absolutely lovely person who provides a comfortable & nurturing environment where you can forget the rest of the world & carve out some much needed you-time!
I have been benefiting from the therapy Nicole provides, for nearly 7 years . Can't do her justice enough in just a few words. I wholly recommend you experience for yourselves.
I visit Nicolle for a neck, shoulder and back massage every quarter due to prolonged periods of sitting. She is brilliant, very attentive and professional.”
Nicolle is a great therapist and I cannot recommend her enough. She has a very calm and soothing vibe and she really takes the time to get to know you and understand what you need. Not only the techniques which she uses are very effective, but also she has this beautiful gift of balancing the right flow of energy during the treatment - therapists like her are hard to find! Thank you, Nicolle!
Fantastic massage lovely lovely lady very kind and genuinely wanted to help , my son is autistic and loves to visit Nicole for a lovely aromatherapy massage and more recently a story massage to help him process a close bereavement, he always comes away relaxed and smiling , it is situated in the most beautiful surroundings that are a tonic in itself , Nicole offers an array of therapies and her lotions and potions are amazing particularly her magic wands . All in all a 5⭐️ experience.
I had the first of, hopefully, many massages with Nicolle yesterday. Without the benefit of personal recommendations I relied on the reviews, all of which are very accurate. I had the best back & neck massage in many years. Nicolle is a very warm friendly individual with a calming influence. The massage takes place in a most relaxing environment. Looking forward to my next one!
I have been seeing Nicolle for over 8 years. Nicolle provides excellent, individualised therapeutic massage treatments. She has a wealth of experience and expertise in this field. She combines professional business acumen with a human caring approach. She undertakes a careful assessment before treatments, and keeps apposite records. She is reliable, flexible and continues to learn and develop her practice.I have no hesitation in recommending Nicolle and The Little Massage Clinic.
At my first session, I appreciated Nicolle taking a full history including my lifestyle and anything which was troubling me physically and mentally. I really felt that my treatment was tailored to my needs, and came out feeling more relaxed than I had done in a long time. Nicolle checks how I am doing at the start of every session, so she can make sure each treatment is appropriate for me at the time. It is a collaborative and fully holistic way of working which really pays dividends. The full-body massage wakes up muscles which don’t get worked in day-to-day life, meaning I come out of each session much more aware of my own body, and more comfortable in my own skin.
Just wanted to say thank you again for the lovely massage….my shoulder was feeling tons better the next day! Have just done two thirteen hour days at the hospital without any pain so thank you! I am looking into a pilates class too!
I went to see Nicolle with a tense back. I was physically strained from the type of work I do as well as tense from the amount of stress I often carry. We started the session with a chat about me, my body and my lifestyle. I received a most invigorating/releasing massage that left me feeling so relaxed and smelling amazing I went to bed the minute I got home. I left Nicolle’s clinic feeling more comfortable physically as well more insightful into how my everyday life has an impact on my physical well being. I immediately threw out my flip flops! Nicolle’s demonstration of how to lie on one’s side correctly has been digested and the pillows have been adjusted! Since my visit with Nicolle I feel more empowered on how to work better with my body to release the strains of the everyday.
The pandemic has highlighted how many people are excluded within society. This exclusion 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.
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. It will be my privelege to support you.
Look after each other, warm wishes, Nicolle
