Slide Touch and Co. Massage
and
Relaxation

Welcome

Welcome to Touch and Co, I invite you to bring some relaxation into your life, with holistic massage treatments, relaxation classes and workshops and organic skincare and aromatherapy from Neal’s Yard.
We live increasingly busy lives, as we juggle the demands of home, work, money, relationships, parenting, caring for elderly relations, social media, and so the list goes on….
As the pressure mounts we can feel overwhelmed and stressed which harms both physical and mental health and wellbeing.
Making time for yourself and discovering relaxation is probably the most important thing you can do for yourself,

About Me

About me

Hello, I'm Christine. Touch and Co was born out of my life experiences.  My background is in nursing and the voluntary sector and for twenty years I was a carer for a close family member.  Life was busy and incredibly stressful at times, and there's no doubt it took its toll on my mental and physical health.

There's a saying, 'you can't pour from an empty cup' and it's true that if you don't look after yourself then there's nothing spare for others.

When I hit fifty, I had a midlife crisis (but a positive one!) and retrained as a holistic massage therapist.  I loved seeing how much my clients benefited from their treatments and that sparked an interest in other techniques for stress and relaxation and so I took further training to become a professional Relaxation Therapist.

 

If you'd like to bring some relaxation into your life, but don't know where to start, then give me a call , I'd love to help!
