I’m Nicki Lee. I am a Sports Therapist who has specialised in massage full time since 1999, and I have been teaching Advanced Massage courses since 2004.

People come to see me for many different reasons – aches and pains, symptoms of stress and anxiety, chronic pain and many health conditions, or even just because they like massage!

Helping people lead more comfortable and therefore more enjoyable lives is at the heart of what I do.  This extensive client experience combined with continuing research and study makes my Advanced Massage courses and Mentoring Programme for therapists effective and up to date.

I often work with people in pain caused by injury, illness or health conditions or just normal ‘wear and tear’ using Remedial and Sports Massage techniques. I also do a more relaxing massage, ideal for people with stress, general tension, depression and anxiety. My goal is to help you feel better, and I do that by matching up my techniques on the day depending on how you are feeling – most importantly, your treatment should be pleasant and never painful. I have a ‘client-centred’ practice which means your concerns are my top priority.

I have been teaching Remedial, Sports and Advanced Massage techniques since 2004 in further education, private colleges and in my own workshops and courses. I offer my students professional and structured interactive training in a friendly informal atmosphere. My many years of experience working as a Remedial Massage Therapist is backed up by my own continual training to let me to offer practical helpful workshops which can make an immediate difference to the treatments you offer.

I attend conferences, seminars and training days on a regular basis to keep up to date. I have qualifications in massage, sports therapy and teaching, including;

  • City & Guilds FE Teacher Training
    • Stage One 2005
    • Stage Two 2008
  • IIST Advanced Diploma in Sports Therapy, 2000 with Advanced Diplomas in Health & Fitness Studies & Sports Therapy, comprised of:

Nicki’s vast knowledge of her subject comes through and the format of the day enabled me to observe, carry out and receive guidance on new techniques. I found the courses enjoyable and the pace of the day perfect for my needs. Nicki is patient and has exactly the right balance between formal and informal making the day a relaxed and enjoyable experience.

Massage Training – Mentoring

I have been assisting and advising former students and other massage therapists for a number of years, and decided the time was right to begin a more formal Mentoring Programme.

My aim is to offer continuing support, guidance, a sympathetic ear and, when asked, advice. Some of the areas I will offer particular focus on will be:

  • Contraindications, cautions and treatment adaptations
  • Working with clients, professional boundaries
  • Client assessments and consultations
  • Professional ethics
  • Research and developments in our field, including Pain Science
  • Your business and professional development
  • Your questions about anything pertaining to massage therapy & business – the heart of the programme.

Many therapists work alone and don’t have peers or supervisors to discuss these issues with, and the programme is developed with those therapists in mind. This is also ideal for therapists who are newly qualified, are returning to work after a break. It’s appropriate if you have qualifications in massage, sports massage or beauty therapy (with massage module).

Benefits to you

1. I am at the end of the phone or email with any questions you have, particularly about client conditions and treatments.
2. Twice each year, we will have a one-to-one discussion, focusing on any areas of concern you may have, or to discuss your training, business focus and professional development.
3. You will receive a 50% discount on workshops I offer, with other discounts available for talks, seminars, etc.
4. There is a private, on-line forum for discussion.
5. You may obtain up to 2 hours per month of CPD points through participation in the forum discussions.

INDIAN HEAD AND SHOULDER MASSAGE
Learn and enjoy giving and receiving Indian Head and Shoulder Massage! At this workshop you will learn and practice massaging the upper back, shoulders, neck, arms and head.
Developed in India over centuries where massage has been given both in the home and at barbers, this has been expanded to include working on the upper back and is now one of the most popular therapies here in the U.K.
This treatment is given over the clothing with your partner sitting up in a regular chair – so no special equipment or undressing is needed.
Most of the session is spent actually giving or receiving massage, but you will also observe demonstrations, have the opportunity for questions, and learn how to prepare yourself and your partner for a safe, relaxing and fun treatment.

You will receive a handbook with detailed descriptions which will help you remember all the movements.
This workshop is suitable for anyone with an interest in massage. You should be fit enough to stand for 30 minutes at a time while giving the treatment. You are welcome to attend with a partner but it is not required to come as a pair.
You will delight your family and friends with this new skill.
Please note that this course is not suitable for practicing professionally.
This course is normally taught over 2 evenings or one Saturday. Please contact me to indicate your interest and I will notify you when the next class is scheduled.

I’m ridiculously picky. I’ve had some awful massages, some mediocre ones, and some brilliantly effective. None have come close to what Nicki provides. She’s knowledgeable, friendly, intuitive and skilled. I wouldn’t recommend any business unless I had had personal experience of the services offered and I’ve had many massages from Nicki, all of which have been that rare mix of effective and luxurious. 
My ageing body always feels so much better afterwards, and one day, when I win the lottery, I’d have her on retainer for a daily massage.

And…. massage should NOT HURT! Not even a sports massage. It’s very old fashioned to think that a treatment needs to be painful to be effective.
