"Hello, my name is Tess Knight and I am passionate about the benefits of healing touch; treating the whole person, not just the condition and symptoms.
My goal at Conscious Touch is to provide effective treatment and the energy and space to support your health and wellbeing - mind, body, and spirit.
I look forward to meeting you soon and supporting you in your journey to optimal health and wellbeing."
I have attained an ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Holistic Massage, gaining a distinction, and an ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Aromatherapy. I have completed Diplomas in Pregnancy Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Indian Head Massage, Thai Foot Massage, Myofascial Release, and Manual Lymphatic Drainage. I am also a qualified Bowen Technique Practitioner, having trained at the College of Bowen Studies. I am fully insured and DBS checked.
I live in North Cornwall with my husband and our three children. Having a great love of the natural world, I originally trained as a botanist and ecologist, before completing a PhD, radio-tracking lesser horseshoe bats to help their conservation. Subsequent to that my husband and I set up our own ecological consultancy and started a family.
It was when trying to conceive that my passion for complementary medicine and spirituality deepened. Aromatherapy and massage, in particular, was of great benefit to me when trying to conceive, during my pregnancies and post-natally. I also used baby reflexology and baby massage with all my children, adapting the movements to their needs at the time, and it has been a wonderful contribution to me and my family.
