Ella de Roeck


Meet Ella

I am a JING therapist trained in both Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy and Advanced Myofascial Release. I use a range of techniques and holistic tools, with a focus on fascial and energy-based therapy.

Massage therapy provides relaxation and relief from stress tension, as well as treating chronic pain by reducing muscular-skeletal discomfort, injury and disfunction. Facilitating the body’s own natural healing process, massage therapy seeks to improve, restore and maintain muscular strength, range of movement and flexibility.

Alongside being a fully trained and experienced massage therapist, I have worked in the 3rd sector for many years, supporting people experiencing trauma, grief and loss. I am also trained in counselling skills. I have a background in Psychology and have always had an interest in the somatic mind-body connection.

I bring all this experience and exploration to my massage therapy as Embodied Touch working in an intuitive, empathic and trauma-informed way.

"I was lucky to meet Ella while I was living in Brighton, her massages were the awaited moment of my weeks! She has a magical touch, gentle and healing which soothes body and mind. I would recommend her to anyone looking to invest in themselves. Massages are a powerful tool and a talented masseuse who you can trust, like Ella, is a blessing."

"Ella has been giving me massages for years now and they are wonderful. She has a great knowledge of techniques and anatomy and can help with any areas of discomfort- although I generally seem to have tight shoulders and that is about it! She treated me after the birth of my baby a couple of years ago. I am always very relaxed and my body has lost all it’s tension after her massages. I highly recommend her."
