Lesley Lister – MTI, CIMI
Massage Practitioner, MTl
My massage training was with the Academy of Natural Health based in Neals Yard, Covent Garden, London. I qualified in Holistic Massage, Anatomy and Physiology with both MTI and ITEC in May 2000. MTI is a National Examining Body, specialising in holistic massage and is regarded as the “Gold Standard” for massage training. I have worked with a wide range of clients and conditions in private practice in London, Newark and Sheffield .
During my time in London, I worked at Phoenx House, a residential care centre helping substance abusers rebuild their lives. Massage was introduced to support the recovery programme and proved very beneficial.
The birth of my daughter Katie, now 22 years old, introduced me to infant massage and I qualified as a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI) in March 2002. Between 2003-2005 I ran Baby Massage classes for Newark & Sherwood Sure Start.
Between 2006 – 2009 I worked with Olivia Lester, (Active Birth / Yogabirth teacher & Birth Doula) running combined Post Natal Yoga and Baby Massage Classes to relax mother and baby! I also have specific expertise for massage in pregnancy.
In June 2012, I went out to Sarajevo as a volunteer massage therapist with the charity Healing Hands Network working with those still suffering from the aftermath of the Bosnian War. Many of the clients we were working with had been in concentration camps and were still suffering mental and physical trauma, had lost family members during the war or had specific injuries particularly sniper wounds. It was very rewarding and humbling work and I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity. In spite of what they have been through, the Bosnian people are warm and friendly and very appreciative of the work we are doing.

Feedback from clients:
“Lesley takes time to understand what your needs are & suggests the type of massage she feels would benefit you. She is very open to feedback & uses this well in treatment. For years I have suffered with lower back pain & have seen various physiotherapists with variable results. Lesley was able to identify trigger points that were causing a lot of pain & she doesn’t shy away from more sensitive areas (gluteals, hips). I’d highly recommend her.” Tina
” I went to see Lesley when I was at a really low ebb, my energy levels were low and I was feeling very down. I talked through my feelings with Lesley and she was incredibly understanding and I received the most wonderfully relaxing massage, Lesley works with energies as well as providing a straight forward massage and by the end of it I was deeply relaxed on the couch and did feel ‘drunk’ after the session. That was 2 weeks ago and I have not dipped back into my low energy low ebb state.. I would never have believed that a massage could make such a difference but it did. I would really recommend Lesley’s massages”. Stella
