About & Relax Massage Therapies

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.

About Jacqui

My journey in massage began back in 2012, following the birth of my first child. Transitioning from a career as a fashion buyer, I transformed my passion for fashion into a commitment to help individuals in reducing stress. Initially, my focus in massage centred on a more holistic approach, primarily providing relaxation massage.

As my interest in fitness, particularly running, deepened, and my love for learning continued, I decided to expand my expertise. This led me to pursue a diploma in sports massage. The more I learned and the more clients I treated, the more I wanted to enhance my knowledge further. As well as reducing stress, treating clients with sports injuries etc, I wanted to understand how I could help those clients suffering with chronic pain. Consequently, in 2022, I embarked on my BTEC Level 6 journey – a three-year, degree equivalent qualification further solidifying my dedication to advancing my skills in the field. This is the ‘highest’ level of massage qualification in the UK.

I’m a fully qualified and insured, professional massage therapist having trained under the renowned Jing Institute of Massage & Complementary Medicine, Middlesex School of Complementary Medicine and Richdales Institute.

I’m a member of the CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council), the SMA (The Association for Soft Tissue Therapists) and the CThA (Complementary Therapy Association). Membership in a professional body involves adhering to a code of conduct and a commitment to maintaining the highest standards within the industry. This ensures a sense of assurance and protection for both the therapist and you as the client.
