Welcome to Positive Touch Therapy

“Touch the body, calm the mind, heal the spirit”

I am an Occupational Therapist, a massage therapist and Tropic Skincare Leader.

I use my skills and knowledge to promote physical and mental wellbeing.

Why Positive Touch?

The answer is simple, all my services involve touch whether its massage, skincare, little beauty treatments or a Tropic pamper.

My aim is that my services leave you feeling a little more positive, relaxed, rebalanced, and recharged.

“People will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
people will never forget how you made them feel”

A Litte About Me

My inspiration for Positive Touch comes from several places.

The first was my work as an Occupational Therapist. I love working with and supporting people. Occupational Therapy is about empowering people to overcome physical and psychological difficulties by working with what is important to them.  Occupational Therapy taught me the importance of the mind, body connection. Whether it was physically rehabilitating someone or working in mental health, progress always improved when the mind and body were aligned and in balance. It underpins how I view the world and everything I do.

My desire to bring the benefits of massage to a wider range of clients led me to specialise in hydrotherm massage. Hydrotherm massage is a three-dimensional, warm massage, where you remain face up throughout. The unique positioning, the hydrotherm system and a fully hydraulic bed, enables physical barriers to be overcome. It is loved by many. It is perfect for pregnancy massage, people with limited mobility, physical disabilities, stable health conditions such as cancer and for those who cannot lie on their front. You can find more information about this in my services section.

When I’m not massaging or doing facial treatments, I can be found sharing my passion educating people about the benefits of natural, clean skincare and doing Tropic pampers. I absolutely love this company and its ethos. I joined Tropic in February 2020 as it was important to me that I used natural products on my client’s skin. Little did I know that Tropic would become my lifeline over 2020. I now have a growing team of ambassadors, have achieved several trips abroad and it fits beautifully with my treatments.

My final inspiration stems from becoming a mother, wife, and business owner. Life can be relentless. My job reminds me and others that you were someone before you became a parent and that person matters, it’s so important to make time for ourselves.

What They Say

“I had my first hydrotherm massage with Christine today and it was honestly the best massage experience I have ever had.

I felt like I was lying on a cloud and almost drifted off to sleep numerous times. I even had a mini facial at the end and am glowing this afternoon. I enjoyed it so much I have booked again for the following Thursday!

Currently sat at home feeling very relaxed & sleepy, roll on next week…

I can’t recommend this treatment enough.”

“When you work so hard and forget to think about yourself, a treatment at Positive Touch Massage Therapies was just what I needed.

Using the hydrotherm meant not only a fantastic massage but helped my muscles and tone ease, meaning that I was fully relaxed, and my body was able to get what it deserves. I am feeling fantastic, chilled and ready to face the world again tomorrow.

Thank you, Christine you are amazing, and understand my needs fully.”

“I had a pregnancy massage this morning with Christine and I genuinely have never felt so relaxed throughout my pregnancy.

Christine was super friendly and welcoming from the minute I stepped through the door. The atmosphere was relaxing and warm and I felt very at ease from the get-go.

I had the hydrotherm pregnancy massage and it was a real treat. I felt relaxed from top to toe and almost fell asleep on a couple of occasions. Christine also offered a drink and sorbet at the end to help cool off which was a great touch to a fantastic experience.

I could not recommend enough. Worth a try. Thank you! Xx”

“I have had a range of massages from Christine as well as attending her baby massage groups.

I can honestly say it is the extra mile Christine goes that makes her stand head and shoulders above anyone else. She is extremely professional, friendly, and very good!!!

I would highly recommend her time and time again….”

“Today I met Christine for a much needed Tranquil Sea Hydrotherm Oncology Massage, what can I say other than WOW!

From the start to finish Christine was extremely professional and discussed my specific needs. Being laid on my back whilst massaged was perfect for me and the added silence in the room helped me to zone off and experience some much needed ‘me time’. To finish off with a facial was perfect.

Christine clearly has a wide range of knowledge when it comes to various illnesses and conditions, I am so glad I found her page on Facebook. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in the same boat as myself, or anyone looking for a relaxing massage; pamper time is essential.

I have booked my next appointment and already looking forward to it. Thank you so much Christine.
