Ruth Illes


Ruth commenced her career in body therapy whilst studying for her BA (hons) in Performing Arts, where she learned about the importance of breathwork and the Mind Body Spirit connection.  Shortly after graduating, she moved to Sydney, Australia where she qualified in Swedish Massage.

Whilst living in the French Alps, Ruth decided to expand her knowledge and study Sports & Remedial Massage Therapy at the National Institute Athletics Centre, Cardiff.  For over a decade Ruth has been treating sports injuries and soothing muscle aches from France to Lincoln to London.  In that time Ruth has worked with Professional Athletes, in Sports Clinics, Healing Centres, and in Neurological Rehabilitation.

Over the last 12 years Ruth has continued to expand her knowledge and evolve her practice, studying with London School of Massage, Jing Advanced Massage School, and Middlesex School of Complementary Medicine to name a few, to include treatments such as Pregnancy & Labour massage, Cancer Massage and Scar Tissue Massage.

In 2018 Ruth undertook training in Womb and Fertility Massage under Clare Spink – working with women who are trying to conceive but also helping women with period pains, endometriosis, post-hysterectomy, etc.  But most of all it helps women connect with their heart centers and really explore the divine feminine within.

In early 2020 Ruth was honored to be a co-assistant on the Womb & Fertility Massage course and help other practitioners learn this ancient practice with modern skills.

With many years of experience, Ruth creates a bespoke treatment just for your body.  You can expect breathwork, massage, sound, and scent to take you on a journey into your own body, untangling physical & mental traumas, leaving you feeling peaceful and rested.

Treatments offered by Ruth:

Sports, remedial, deep tissue, Swedish, holistic, therapeutic, pregnancy and Post-natal massage.
