‘Jo was so calm and kind….Her voice was reassuring
and made me feel at ease and relaxed.’
CAROLINE – MANCHESTER

a bit about Jo….

I had an excellent training in therapeutic massage with the Sheffield Centre for Massage Training and am registered with the Massage Training Institute (MTI), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and the Federation of Holistic Therapists.

I am trained in deep tissue massage and am currently undertaking a postgraduate diploma in sports and remedial massage. I also hold a certificate in extended counselling skills and groupwork from City University.

my background…

I originally trained as an actor, with a degree in drama and theatre studies from London University (RHBNC) and a postgraduate acting training at Drama Studio London, and have worked in theatre and television for many years – which inevitably means doing lots of other jobs besides acting! Throughout my varied career I’ve always been interested in people’s stories – in how we communicate our experience to each other, with our bodies as well as with words, and how we connect both with others and with ourselves.

how I got here…

Events in my own life led me to experience the difficulty of feeling at odds with my body, and as I worked towards making sense of this I noticed how many other people were experiencing similar feelings – for all kinds of different reasons. My longstanding interest in the field of bodywork deepened and I became fascinated by the body-mind connection. Training as a holistic massage therapist became an obvious next step for me and at Therapy Room Manchester I’d like to work with you to listen to your body with kindness and help you feel better.

‘I loved how much tension was released and how deep the pressure was.’ 
PAUL – MANCHESTER

 

Theresa – Manchester
Jo is a great massage therapist. I have had several treatments by her and she instinctively knows where to massage to alleviate anything that might be hurting. Jo is personable and knowledgeable. She listens, and tailors her therapy to you so that she delivers a holistic treatment, which benefits body, mind and soul!  She is particularly skilled in taking her cue from her client so that she delivers very individual care. She is professional, respectful and attentive and I highly recommend her!
Hannah – Manchester
Jo made me feel at ease and listened to what I wanted. 
The warm towels were a great touch. Normally I can get
cold hands/feet but I was lovely and warm throughout.
The room is a great space and atmosphere peaceful.
Thanks for a great massage – I look forward to coming again soon.
