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.
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
Your Health at Heart
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.
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 email@example.com 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.
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 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
Part of my service is to offer people bespoke aroma-blends. If you have a health issue, whether it be physical, mental or emotional there may be something I can prescribe especially for you or a loved one. I mix prescriptions to support your health & maybe ease pain, sleeplessness, or gently support you through grief, depression or anxiety or simply help you and someone you care for reminisce and connect. Please contact me with your enquiry so we can discuss your needs.
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.
