Welcome to Holistic Massage Kneads, the website for Lucy Dunleavy who has been in practice since 2003. I specialise in clinical deep tissue massage, sports massage and chronic pain management. I also offer CranioSacral Therapy to address a wide variety of health issues, stress and anxiety. My treatment room is situated in my home in central Brighton, East Sussex. It is a friendly relaxed environment with easy on-street pay and display parking (using the paybyphone parking app) or else there is the London Road car park which is 10 minutes walk away.

Clinical deep-tissue massage for chronic pain management
Are you experiencing pain from an injury, from having to sit and work at a desk all day, or from any kind of repetitive strain from a job you do?
Clinical massage can help you with these kinds of pain issues, whether they have just popped up or whether you have had them for many years. I use a whole range of techniques from deep tissue, myofascial release and subtle energy work. Every treatment is tailored according to your specific needs.
This form of manual therapy, with information and advice on movement and exercise, coupled with postural awareness techniques, is a non-invasive fusion of Eastern and Western techniques.It facilitates recovery and empowers you with the knowledge to stay as pain free as possible in the future.
I can help to improve your pain levels, flexibility and range of movement. Within 1 to 6 treatments of clinical deep tissue massage, I would expect your pain levels to reduce and I will help you to obtain and maintain your best possible performance. I use cutting-edge advanced massage and craniosacral techniques, with powerful lasting results.
Craniosacral Therapy in Brighton
Are you struggling with stress, anxiety or insomnia? Perhaps you have digestive, respiratory or blood pressure problems?
Tensions and restrictions held deeply within your body tissues can manifest as many kinds of problems.
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, safe hands-on treatment using a light touch which enables long-held tensions within your body to release. Often these restrictions from our lives become so embedded we become unconscious of them. Yet we keep getting repetitive aches, discomfort and unease physically, emotionally and in our general well-being. Craniosacral therapy gives the mind/body an opportunity to release, restore and integrate into healthy function.To learn more please click here

Lucy has the most amazing and healing hands. I came to her with pain that the normal physiotherapist and even specialist hadn't been able to fix. Now, the pain is a lot better and and she is thoroughly working through the muscles and soft tissue that need fixing in each session. I'm always looking forward to our appointments. She listens to all my questions and has the time to educate me about my body . She is gentle soul with strong hands. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
Lucy is very kind and easy to talk to. I’ve been seeing her for two months for tight neck and shoulders. I’ve gone from needing to take painkillers every day to hardly needing them. It’s not just the massage that’s great, but also the helpful advice on posture and exercises. Lucy is very knowledgeable on anatomy and useful stretches.
I greatly appreciated Lucy’s in-depth knowledge of the body and her professionalism in providing a holistic approach to massage. Lucy offered a pre-assessment of my needs via a friendly yet professional phone call and delivered a very relaxing, effective and much needed deep tissue massage. Lucy also recommended to me some daily stretches specified to areas of current discomfort and these have proven to be effective. I highly recommend Lucy (Holistic Massage Kneads) to anyone who requires a relaxing massage treatment targeting body discomfort
Seeing Lucy at Holistic Massage Kneads is always a great experience - she is so knowledgeable, experienced that no matter what the issue her massage always seems to be perfectly tailored with great anatomical understanding. She creates a welcoming l, friendly and relaxed atmosphere as well as providing clinical relief for all manner of aches and pains. I would highly recommend her
