Sophie Bower

After graduating from the University of Brighton with a BA Hons in Business Studies, Sophie pursued a publishing career in London. After redundancy she took the opportunity to volunteer for the charity SPARKS for a year whilst learning new life skills. Her sister suggested a massage course, as she was a natural. She took the plunge and trained in Holistic massage with the renowned Clare Maxwell-Hudson.

Clare’s enthusiasm and passion rubbed off and gave Sophie a thirst to learn more. She was keen to learn more in-depth treatments, as she recognised many people suffer with ailments and injuries so she trained in Sports Massage at St Thomas’ Hospital in London. It was at that time that many friends and family were pregnant so she embarked on a Pregnancy Massage Course and Postnatal Course with Well Mother. Unlike other Pregnancy qualifications, she is trained and insured to treat clients from week one of pregnancy all the way through and from week one postnatally.

She also qualified in Indian Head Massage to help those with chronic stress, headaches etc. This is an adaptable treatment that can be done either on a chair or couch with or without oil and either dressed or undressed. She thrives on seeing people walk out of the treatment feeling much better and has seen great progress with clients she treats regularly with chronic conditions.

She has a thirst for knowledge and is keen to learn more. She has an Emmett qualification and combines some of the techniques within treatment and is keen to develop this area amongst others in the future.

In her spare time she loves to sing, walk the dog and is a big fan of barre classes. She says the barre classes have not only changed her body, but has improved her posture and has given her a lot more strength and stamina for deep treatments!

Treatments offered by Sophie are:

  • Holistic Massage,
  • Sports Massage,
  • Pregnancy and Postnatal Massage
  • Indian Head Massage

She has appointments available at The Summertown Clinic on Monday mornings and alternate Saturday Mornings. If you would like to book an appointment, please call our friendly receptionist on 01865 558561
