About Massage By Isobel
MASSAGE BY ISOBEL was established in 1991. Having passed her ITEC exams in Anatomy and Physiology Isobel went on to qualify in Swedish and Aromatherapy massage techniques. She then studied Lymphatic Drainage, G5, Deep-Tissue, and Remedial Massage. Isobel continues to add more skills and effectiveness by learning from other massage styles and techniques.
Drawing on all of these combined skills Isobel will tailor a unique treatment that will address your specific need for a caring and professional treatment.
Over the years Isobel has worked both independently and alongside Yorkshire’s leading Physiotherapists and is currently based in a charming cottage location in Holmfirth, the heart of the Holme Valley.

On arrival you will find a warm and cosy waiting room in which you can relax before being taken up to theTreatment Room. After your initial assessment you will be left in private to get changed, remove jewellery and pin hair up. There are no set rules regarding clothing – your comfort is of the utmost importance. By way of a guideline, most clients prefer to wear underclothes so it is advisable to wear clothing that can be washed at 40° or above just in case any oil gets onto them.
Your therapy begins with a detailed assessment to establish medical background and lifestyle. Your therapist will then discuss her recommendations for your treatment. You can accept some, or all of her suggestions. This will ensure that the best blend of massage techniques and oils can be chosen just for you. If you have a complex medical history it is advised you book a longer session so that we have time to discuss your issues in full without impinging on your valueable massage time.
First appointments require payment in full on booking.
Over the course of your treatment your improvement will be monitored. Your posture will improve. You will look and feel younger, healthier, more supple and relaxed.
Having felt the full benefit of therapeutic massage you will want to continue feeling so good. A maintenance programme will be discussed and if desired, put in place. This can be a weekly, monthly or on a “when ready” basis.
You are in control.
Now you are stronger, healthier, relaxed and lithe your body is much better able to protect you from future illness and injury!
