Alice Beese now fully qualified holistic massage therapist working from BS9 in Bristol.Read More
After a year of study, milestone assignments, case studies and over 100 hours of practice - I qualified in massage! I now have the best qualification in the UK - Level 4 Diploma in Holistic Massage, Physiology and Pathology from the prestigious Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork.
Monday night massage here in Bristol for £45.00 an hour. I’ll carry on working full time at Common Seas, and hope to create a 1:1 model with the massage business so that when you book one you pay it forward to someone less fortunate - undecided whether this group will be refugees, vulnerable women, homeless or another local organisation.
My new website is massagewithalice.com for those wanting more information.
Just got back on Thursday night from a fantastic few days in the Swiss mountains in Klosters.
The Common Seas team were delivering four workshops at The Klosters Forum - an annual environmental conference to promote collaborations with the hope of accelerating and sparking new initiatives. This year it was all about... Ocean Plastic!
My role was booking all the team travel from door to door, preparing the workshop materials including worksheets and moderator notes, supporting the team to facilitate their sessions, moderating the groups, working with the event production team on set up and much more.
Got back to Bristol and straight into my Anatomy, Physiology and pathology class at the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork - so spent all day yesterday learning about the respiratory and digestive system. Today we practised massage to aid both breathing and digestion so that was fun!
Spent 3 nights and four days with my fellow massage students! We did a lot of learning and massage but also found time to swim in this river at least once a day, went for a run, danced lindyhop and salsa, ate amazing food. Such a great course.
My oldest Do Lectures T shirt has 2008 on it. And I'm excited to have gotten to be invited to the tenth Do Lectures. I've volunteered at over 6 of the events, produced two of them in 2014 and 2015 at Campovida, USA and actually spoke in 2013 too about our 2,500 mile bike ride down the west coast of the states.
Anyway... was great to be back and see many old faces who I love dearly.
And in return for getting to be at the tenth anniversary? I massaged everyone - well it certainly felt like it had been everyone when Sunday night rolled around! 23 massages in a few days - I was so wiped out! But what a cool way to give back to the event that has been such a huge part of my life and created so many life changing moments. It makes me so full up and happy inside to be a part of The Do.
So, this is Adam, he's the in house guy at The Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork to help us learn all the bones in the body. My massage course is going well. It's a 11 month long Level 4 Diploma in Holistic Massage and I'm about half way there. We're meeting every month atBCMB to learn from our tutors and then over the month in between each gathering we practice a lot - and study, write our milestone assignments and submit our Anatomy, Pathology and Physiology homework. It's good to be learning again - and with so much variety in what we've been learning about. Next month we have a 4 day residential in Hereford with all the students. Should be fun - organic veg from their garden, swimming in the river - and lots and lots of massage
