Meet Ollie Dennison
I know that physical self-care is essential to ensuring we can each live our lives to their fullest. I believe that with awareness, care and maintenance of mobility we can all be empowered to move and feel how we want in our bodies.
I am passionate about movement and maintaining my own physical health and well-being. I have been practicing yoga and martial arts for 20 years. Alongside this, I work in the community teaching dance and movement classes to children and adults. Over the years I have suffered several injuries and have personal experience of full rehabilitation with dedicated practice and professional support. Because of this journey with my own physical self-care, combined with a background in support work and education, I have found a calling in helping others improve their own physical health and well-being through massage and bodywork.
I have just completed the Remedial & Sports Massage course with BCMB (awaiting the certificate) and am qualified in Holistic Massage, with additional training in Myofascial Release and Deep Tissue Massage. I combine targeted, firm and direct techniques for soft tissue release with a sensitive approach and compassionate touch, giving space and time for the fascia (our body’s web of connective tissue) to adjust, unwind and release. Whether you are seeking support due to injury, postural dysfunction or more general physical and / or emotional struggle, I aim to support a complete return to pain-free movement and enhance awareness to the connection between body and mind, leading to a more improved sense of well-being overall.
When I’m not massaging, I am also a professional musician and a graduated teacher of Capoeira (a form of Brazilian martial art) for both adults and children.
