& Relax Massage Therapies

Specialist in Advanced Clinical & Remedial Sports Massage.

Are you suffering with chronic pain, a sporting related injury or you just need some time out to relax and unwind? Then you’ve come to the right place! 

See How I Can Help

& Relax Massage Therapies offers a variety of tailored massage treatments and specialises in clinical and remedial massage. As well as helping you with lasting pain relief, your treatments will also leave you feeling deeply relaxed, renewed and ready to go.

Massage therapy is one of the oldest forms of healing arts. It involves the external manipulation of the skin and its underlying structures, using a system of therapeutic movements to relax, stimulate and rehabilitate the body. The benefits of massage therapy go considerably further than simply the feelings of relaxation and wellness usually recognised after a massage. In addition, massage can help us to maintain our general health, fitness and flexibility.

At its best, massage has the potential to restore the individual both physically and mentally. Whether it be to treat your chronic pain or just to unwind and de-stress, & Relax Massage Therapies can help.

A bit about me

Hello, I’m Jacqui, an advanced clinical and sports massage therapist located in the Northamptonshire village of Hartwell. I established & Relax Massage Therapies in 2012, and I am the sole owner and therapist, specialising in advanced clinical and remedial sports massage therapies.

My passion is to help get my clients out of pain and back to living their life to the full through the use of remedial and advanced clinical soft tissue and massage therapy.

I have a deep love for learning and I am always looking at ways to further improve and enhance my knowledge.

The Benefits Of Massage Therapy


Relief of Accumulated Tension

Massage can help allieviate pain and tension by targeting any areas of tightness, treating trigger points and encouraging the muscles to relax.


Restores Muscle Flexibility

By working on muscles, connective tissues, ligaments and joints, regular massage can improve your flexibility and range of movement.


Improved Concentration

Enhanced circulation through massage ensures that the brain receives increased oxygen and nutrients, contributing to improve cognitive function and mental alertness.


Improve Sleep Quality

Massage increases the production of serotonin in the body which is vital for regulating sleep cycles and boosting our mental health.


Stimulates & Strengthens the Immune System

Massage increases the circulation, oxygenation and blood flow around the body, whilst also stimulating the production and efficiency of white blood cells which are responsible for fighting infections.


Reduces Anxiety & Mental Stress

Massage helps to relieve anxiety and stress by lowering the heart rate, slowing down the breath, relaxing muscles and stimulating the release of endorphins (our natural ‘feel good’ hormones that act as a natural pain and stress reliever).

Client Reviews

Nicki Purchase

“Had a great massage from Jacqui today. I came to her with lower back pain and pain in my hip which I have suffered with for a while. Jacqui was very knowledgable and thorough and after just one treatment my back feels so much better. Would highly recommend and looking forward to my next treatment already!”

Louise Jones

“I’ve been on and off to see Jacqui for a few years and she is excellent and knows her stuff. Whether it’s just a relaxing once over or something more targeted for specifically aches and niggles, I know I’m in safe hands.”

Katie Lait

“I started seeing Jacqui in February 2022 and now I go every two weeks. I have issues with my neck and back, seeing Jacqui has really helped to ease the pain. I feel so much better once I have been seen giving me a better range of movement for days afterwards.

Jacqui is welcoming and great to chat with. Lovely and relaxing atmosphere. Would highly recommend”

Andy Fairley

“Superb sports massages that I can highly recommend. Jacqui’s massages have helped prevent injuries and released tight muscles. They have also alleviated various niggles and injuries over the past few years! Great pre-race prep or post-race recovery.

Guaranteed to sleep like a log after!”

Pavol Fabry

“Last week, I had the pleasure of receiving a massage from Jacqui at & Relax Massage Therapies, and it was nothing short of fantastic. Jacqui expertly eased the tension in my neck, shoulders, and lower back. Her treatment room offers a serene and inviting atmosphere, enhancing the overall experience.

What really stood out was Jacqui’s professionalism; she took the time before the session to understand my medical history and past injuries, ensuring a tailored and top-notch session. I’m already looking forward to my next visit and would recommend Jacqui and Relax Massage Therapies to anyone seeking relief and relaxation.”

Samantha Inniss

“Jacqui is amazing. Very knowledgeable and knows exactly what she is doing. Relaxing atmosphere and I felt totally at ease. Very easy to talk to. Highly recommended for anyone looking for either a sports massage or just to go for some relaxation.

Will definitely be booking more sessions.”

Matt Lobley

“I’ve had many sports massages from Jacqui and always feel looser and pain free the next time I run. Her set-up is professional and welcoming, a relaxing environment where you feel comfortable and calm. I highly recommend a massage from Jacqui.”

Kevin Westley

“I highly recommend Jacqui to anyone with any sports related injuries, or even if you just want a pre or post race massage to revive tired muscles. She is extremely well qualified, listens when you describe the pain you are in, and then uses her expertise to treat you. 10/10”
