My name is Nicola Leighton and I am a massage therapist at The Therapy Room. I use clinical massage techniques and aromatherapy. I work with pregnant women to alleviate chronic pain and stress. I have been working here for the last 3 years.
So, I don’t just work with pregnant women, I love working with pregnant women, it’s a great stage of life, but I also work with other people, male, female, all stages of life. Through the techniques that I have I adapt it to work with them on that particular day. So whether they need to lie in a different position, whether we need to use different oils or not, because of who they are and what’s going on in their lives at the time, I can adapt for them. I find that there are a lot of people in Cambridge who are incredibly intelligent and live in their heads and having a great massage is a fantastic way to get back into your body and just love your body a little bit more, rather than living in your head all the time.
The main things I like about working in The Therapy Rooms in Cambridge are the location, that’s great. Most people can get here and the parking is fantastic, no problems there. But also, the really great environment within the clinic, among the therapists with the team of people that are supporting you. It feels that you’re never really working on your own. You can be your own boss, but you’ve got people there to support you and that always feels very helpful. And it’s a really relaxed place to work, there’s a great energy and everyone works well together. Yeah, come, come join the team, the more the merrier. We give each other treatments and that’s always fantastic, so you can know what your fellow practitioners are doing and we can refer to each other any clients that we have, so it’s a great place to try and build up a practice and I highly recommend it.
