Gavin Conochie

Holistic Massage Therapist MTI


I've led an eclectic working life in which I have been lucky enough for the most part to follow my own interests. For the past decade I have been self-employed, simultaneously running a painting & decorating business whilst building up a practice as a Holistic Massage Therapist. In July 2015,  I made the decision to focus entirely on my massage practice and on furthering my interests in both the fields of trauma work and other complementary therapies.
