My massages with Sophie have become an important part of my self-care routine; they help me to feel more grounded, relaxed and peaceful.
Sophie is incredibly skilled; her talents as a massage therapist are abundant but she also has great people skills. Sophie helps me to feel safe and at ease by acknowledging and accepting my vulnerabilities. Sophie has a calming and gentle presence & this helps to create the perfect environment for a massage.

I’ve been to Sophie for a range of massages from the soothing relaxing kind to the deeper massage to really work into my aching muscles, and I always leave satisfied. I really do trust my body in Sophie’s capable hands, knowing I will get exactly what I need from the massage.

With her warm and welcoming manner, Sophie is an intuitive and highly skilled masseuse. She has the ability to identify the exact location of the tension and pain, and uses her confident touch to release the blockage in the muscles. As someone who carries a considerable amount of pain and discomfort, I find regular massages with Sophie a great way to loosen up my body. I can highly recommend Sophie to anyone seeking a high quality massage.

Sophie is a superb at giving message. My knots seem to find her skilful hands and they melt away under a range of gentle but more often not-so-gentle movements and pressure. She has an intuitive sense of the level of and depth of the pressure required to get the body back into its proper alignment. I always come away freer in body and without tension, and enjoy a very good night’s sleep.

Since visiting Sophie, which initially was for painful tension in my shoulders, I have found that the benefits of ongoing visits has helped significantly with my stress levels and also specific muscles which were previously painful.
An example of this is my hamstrings which were pulled playing football and never properly healed, Sophie has worked to free up the tension which has helped with my posture and training.
Sophie has a way of finding the root cause of muscle tension and working it free and I can absolutely recommend her.

Massages with Sophie Fagan are a treat that I look forward to all week! Her kind, sensitive approach to holistic massage ensures that every session is tailored to your current stresses and tensions. The pressure she applies is firm and controlled, and she has surprising strength for a such a little lady! I always leave her sessions wanting to book another, feeling thoroughly pampered and relaxed. She is a true holistic practitioner, treating the whole person. I would recommend her to anyone. Enjoy!

I have received a number of massages from Sophie over her training and now as a qualified massage therapist. Sophie is very good at listening to the needs of her client and tailoring the massage to meet those needs. Sophie has a calming personality and makes her clients feel at ease and comfortable.
Over the time I have been receiving massages from Sophie I have seen her grow as a practitioner and become more confident and skilled. I have received a variety of massages from Sophie. Each one leaves me feeling relaxed and refreshed and helps me relieve stress. I have recommended Sophie to friends before and would not hesitate to do so again.

Sophie is really grounded with her massage. You can really feel her thought and energy going into her touch. She is firm and attentive, whilst really understanding your needs and your body. She has a very good technique and is professional and respectful.
All in all it was a very enjoyable experience and I will be trying to have a monthly massage. Thank you Sophie!

Sophie has a really relaxing way of giving a massage and I really enjoyed it. I felt totally at ease with her and very relaxed. She asked all the way through if the pressure was enough and also gave me feedback at the end.
– Hannah Smith, Project Manager
When I met Sophie I’d just had a baby and life was hectic. I craved some precious me time where I could relax and unwind. My expectations of finding this in one treatment were low… Oh how wrong I was! One consultation and treatment with Sophie left me feeling totally de-stressed and relaxed, both physically and emotionally.
She is an expert in her field and has a very professional, calm approach. I was so impressed by her and the therapy that I now treat myself every few weeks. After each session I leave feeling taller, ache-free and ready to face another hectic month. I cannot rate Sophie highly enough, she is amazing!
– Helen, Nurse Practitioner
Sophie is a radiant and talented masseuse, I loved my first session with her recently. She has a heartfelt, sincere and strongly connected touch. I felt at ease in her gentle and unrushed consultation, which was followed by a stilling and core-reassuring massage. I felt safe and known in her hands. I look forward to regular treatments and recommend her to anyone wishing to allow themselves the time to be held and healed.
– Crystal Kershaw, Artist
Sophie has a wonderful massage technique which, after just a few sessions, has transformed what was a very tense and painful shoulder. She gets the pressure just right, creates a lovely relaxing sensation and my shoulder is so much better as a result of her massage. I could not recommend her highly enough.
– Diane Leitch, Self Employed
Fantastic massage from Sophie Fagan. Wish I could have them more often. Her Magical hands worked wonders on my shoulder, restoring movement that I had lost for at least a year. Thank you Sophie!
– Alex Marshall
I really enjoy my massage treatments with Sophie. She approaches each session with open hands, non-judgemental and considerate of where I am in the moment. As a result, the benefits I experience are being grounded in the moment, rather than thinking through the events of the day, or planning ahead for the next. Due to her holistic approach this means benefits are emotional as well as physical. From a physical side I leave each session feeling less tension in my body and more relaxed. I would definitely recommend Sophie to others!
