Hello! I’m Gillian and I run a massage therapy business in Leeds called Calico Massage Therapy. Being a massage therapist has given me a great deal of satisfaction and I have enjoyed working with clients to address their physical issues while also helping them relax and reduce their stress levels. When, almost a decade ago, a couple of my clients became pregnant, I realised that I’d like to extend my skills and train in prenatal massage so that I could continue working with them through their pregnancy.
I quickly realised that I absolutely loved working with mums-to-be and their partners at this very special time of their lives. So whilst I continue to provide regular massage therapy at Calico Massage Therapy, I mainly specialise in pregnancy and postnatal massage which is offered through Calico Pregnancy Massage.
I am passionate about providing high quality, tailored and empathic support and massage therapy to pregnant women, their partners and wider family. I also strongly believe that massage should continue into the post-natal period when new mums and their partners can also significantly benefit from the physical and emotional support that massage therapy can provide.
I have years of experience working with pregnant and postnatal women and I am fully trained and insured to carry out pregnancy and postnatal massage. I am trained to leading international and national standards in massage therapy and I am a member of the Complementary Therapists Association. I always operate within industry standard codes of ethics and practice. If you'd like to find out more or just have a chat, please don't hesitate to contact me, I'd love to hear from you!
