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.
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.
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:
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
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.
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
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.
I offer full body massage, half body massage, back neck and shoulder massage and extended full body massage
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.
I start this exclusive treatment with a herbal footsoak, while you sit back and enjoy a cup of herbal detox tea.
I ensure your feet are patted dry and moulded and manipulated to bring about a wonderful sense of wellbeing that will put a spring in your step and peace in your soul.
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.
Using only natural ingredients, sourced organically, ethically and sustainably wherever possible, these ingredients are specially selected for each treatment to create fresh face masks and moisturisers to suit your skin type.
A safe natural non-invasive form of micro massage to release facial tension and bring about deep relaxation which can take years off you.
Nicolle recently consulted with me, online, on how to help my two year old daughter's conjunctivitus, as I did not want to rely solely on a orthodox treatment. The advice given to me was brilliant and when put into practise on my little girl, really helped! Nicolle has advised me in the past and I have always been so happy, satisfied and grateful for the sound, professional and nurturing guidance Niki has provided.
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!
A trip to see Nicole is just what your soul needs and indeed any achy muscles too. Nicole has an amazing way of putting you at ease from the moment you walk in. I'd quite happily pay the fee just to sit down and chat with her, I always feel like a weight has been lifted before I even climb onto the massage table! Nicole has a wealth of knowledge and a keen sense of what aromatherapy oils will benefit you during that particular treatment. A visit to the little massage clinic is something you will never regret
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!
For at least ten years, Nicolle’s gentle ministrations have kept my back, neck, shoulders and hands in good working order – essential for me as my work restoring furniture involves much lifting and polishing. By having regular massage, stresses and strains do not build up, so no more tension headaches or backache. Nicolle’s sensitive choice of oils each time helps enormously with my emotional wellbeing too; calming me at times of great stress, boosting energy levels when needed and often my confidence level too. The calm, professional but friendly atmosphere is most welcoming and I would recommend anyone to trust themselves to The Little Massage Clinic.
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.
