Massage Therapist

Ruth Rosewell- BAhons ACMT FHT VTCT

I am a fully insured massage therapist, registered with the Federation of Holistic Therapists and working in Brighton and Hove. I became interested in massage during a particularly stressful period at work and in my personal life. I found it amazing the effect that massage had on my body and mind, de-stressing and re-energising me. I want to share this experience with others.


After training in Swedish massage therapy in 2010, I then went on to explore other massage therapies including stone therapy and Indian Head Massage. I’ve listed all my qualifications below.
