Suzanne Yates

Massage Therapist in Bristol

Even though it has been over 30 years since I discovered shiatsu and massage, I am still amazed by the power and simplicity of touch. It reaffirms for me how important it is to not lose the traditional wisdom of our ancestors, and especially, in this high tech world, to be able to tune into our bodies and work with our own healing power.

I work with female and male clients from my clinic in Bristol and can offer phone or email appointments/skype consultations. Although I work with clients at all stages of their lives, I specialises in working with women's health from preconception through to the menopause and beyond, as well as integrating partners and babies through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.

I teach classes for parents and professionals and set up Wellmother in 1990 to support the wisdom of parents and babies.
