Clinical deep-tissue Massage for chronic pain management & Craniosacral Therapy in Brighton
Welcome to Holistic Massage Kneads, the website for Lucy Dunleavy who has over seventeen years experience in massage therapy specialising in clinical deep tissue massage, sports massage and chronic pain management. Now also offering 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.
Clinical deep-tissue massage can really help people affected by injury, chronic pain or disability. 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. Clinical deep-tissue massage facilitates recovery and empowers a person with the knowledge to stay as pain free as possible in the future.
Whether you are experiencing aches and discomfort from sitting at a desk all day, or whether you have had an injury, repetitive muscle stress or general stress and tension, 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.

Once you have booked your appointment I will contact you to arrange a pre-treatment consultation either online or by phone. This will limit the amount of aerosol transmission in the treatment room and ensure you get maximised hands-on time for your session. You will receive an email with a link to an online intake form which I need you to complete prior to your appointment. The treatment room is deep cleaned inbetween each appointment and all linens are washed and fresh for you. There is plenty of hand sanitiser available for you, and please make sure you are wearing a mask for your appointment.
Online massage self-help services are open for bookings. These are a great way for anyone who is high risk, shielding, in local lockdown or too busy and unable to attend an appointment in person. Please see here for details

Lucy was recommended to me by a friend and I will be eternally grateful! After just one session I felt so much better and am hoping I will soon be back running again. Lucy really knows what she is doing and has a kind and caring manner. I would highly recommend.
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!
A solid knowledge of anatomy combined with intuitive insight gives Lucy an incredible knack of focusing treatment exactly where "kneaded"! After weeks of back pain I have regained much flexibility and am nearly pain free after just one session. Highly recommended!
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.
Lucy is fantastic, very knowledgable and effective. She has helped me loosen up stuck joints, hips and legs. Thank you - highly recommended
