Discover the Power of a Nurturing Touch with an Exquisite Bespoke Experience

"Working with the Hands the Head and the Heart is an Artist!”

The beautiful quote neatly encapsulates everything that I feel about massage. We all know that there is a world of difference between a quick rub up and down from an amateur and the exquisite bespoke healing that you can receive from a master therapist.
Massage is a key element in bringing the beauty of transcendence and connection to others.

The skill is beyond science, beyond textbooks which makes our strapline live : Relax your Mind | Renew your Spirit | Rejuvenate your Body 

I have first studied a Massage course, back in 1997, in Romania. Since then I have practiced with passion providing a bespoke massage in all over the places I have worked / stayed in: Romania (Dambovita), Spain (Valencia, Madrid), US (Chicago).

I become so passionate about my craft that I have decided to refresh my knowledge and enrolled in the Oxford School of Massage in 2014. Two years later, I proudly took my Holistic and Therapeutic Massage Diploma (Level 3 ), including ITEC Diploma (Level 3), Anatomy and Physiology (Level 3) , Professional Awareness (Level 3) and decided to take the risk by quitting my secure office job and opening a Massage business. It was then, in December 2016,  when I have become part of the Spirit Health Club at The Holiday Inn, Peartree Roundabout for two years and I launched The Oxford Massage Centre (OMC). I have operated until I received the sad notice, that the Spirit will be knocked down due to the planning approval for new extra hotel rooms.

This was the time when the OMC’s Signature Massage became a very popular full body massage treatment, as I have incorporated notions of healing, therapeutical massage, stretching and all my years of experience and massages received from other professionals. In time, I have enhanced my knowledge and I have studied other courses, such as Facials, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Ear Candling  etc.
At OMC, the art of touch uses the skills of listening touch, mindfulness, great body mechanism , flow, intuition and listening with the heart. The skill is beyond science, beyond textbooks. Our Strapline is : Relax your Mind | Renew your Spirit | Rejuvenate your Body.

While I was awaiting for the bureaucratic documents to finalise for the current premises, Jurys Inn Hotel, respectively the Juvenate Health Club, in Oxford, Godstow Rd, agreed to take me under their wings for about 3 months. I was grateful to have a roof under my head to continue to provide a professional service.

We successfully opened the centre but could not have done it without your support.  I hope I can continue to count on your support. 

We are happy to announce that Joanne is going to join the OMC family, working on Sundays and Wednesdays evening with a special limited offer of 15 % off for the Swedish Massage.  Joanne is an exceptional therapist and will help provide a haven of relaxation in the city of dreaming spires!

Welcome Jo with a Swedish massage booking on Sunday or Wednesday evenings.

Swedish massage did not originate in Sweden, nor was it created by a Swede. Also, in Sweden there is no "Swedish massage"; instead, massage is referred to almost universally as “Classic massage."

The five main techniques used in Swedish massage are effleurage (stroking and gliding); petrissage (kneading); frictions(rubbing); tapotament (tapping or pounding); and vibration designed to improve your circulation, soothe your muscles and make you feel more relaxed.
