Welcome to embodied health – Yvonne Cattermole.  I am based at Yanley Court in Long Ashton (BS41 9LB).  I started my complementary therapy practice in 1999 and moved my practice to this beautiful converted barn in 2012.

Over the years I have been drawn to therapies that demonstrate an embodied approach to health.  Our bodies provide an honest picture of both our physical and mental health from which we can address imbalances caused by lifestyle, illness, trauma or life’s transitions such as pregnancy, retirement or changes in circumstance.  Each approach aims to balance and recentre the whole person, reducing discomfort or anxiety physically and mentally.

Whether you want to address long-standing or recent issues, we can work together to find support and space, choosing the approach you most enjoy and value.

(All therapies are suitable during pregnancy however I advise Thai bodywork rather than Ayurvedic massage)
