Adriano Owlfinch

Adriano Owlfinch specialises in massages for two-, and four-handed massages alongside his wife Phaedra. He is an MTI Registered, fully qualified professional Massage Therapist, having trained at the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork (BCMB).

Adriano is fascinated by the infinite complexity of the human body and its connections to the mind. He loves that something as deceptively simple as offering touch to the soft tissues of the body can have such profound effects on our stress, sleep, mood, pain, injury recovery, posture, movement.

His focus is to connect with clients as individuals and adapt your massage according to what you need in the moment. He sees it as a creative process, not just following a routine, and takes into account your emotional as well as physical needs.

A book called The Body Keeps the Score was instrumental in attracting Adriano to massage. He has been amazed by how massage can access the profound connection between body and mind when it comes to holding on to and processing trauma, chronic stress, and anxiety.

His intention is to provide a safe, comfortable place where you can inhabit your own self, and experience the healing that massage from a safe, comfortable pair of hands can provide.

In his spare time, Adriano plays table-top role-playing games, makes podcasts and paints digital illustrations.

It was my first ever time having a massage and although I was anxious initially I was greatly reassured by Adriano’s care. He paid very close attention to medical concerns brought up during the consultation before the massage. He was very respectful, reassuring and was very attentive to my specific issues. Adriano was very conscious in respecting if there were areas I preferred not to have worked on. As I had never had a massage before, I didn’t realise I had areas I had emotional links to. I appreciated the professionalism in how he kept to his word when I noticed mid-massage a physical/emotional trigger and he moved to another area fluidly. I felt normal and reaffirmed, safe and able to speak on my body and have it respected. I realise I should have been having massages years ago and I can’t wait to have another one!

My partner and I booked a couples massage with Phaedra and Adriano. The session started by entering the beautifully set-up room, with candles and ambient music in the background. We started off with the initial consultation and I received a lovely considerate massage from Adriano. He checked in with me regularly and adjusted to my requests, focusing on the areas I asked him to. I was very pleased with the massage and left feeling very relaxed. I would highly recommend – thank you Adriano and Phaedra.

I couldn’t recommend the 4-handed massage more! The ultimate luxurious experience to relax the soul. An ocean of calm washed over me – thank you Adriano and Phaedra!

I had the pleasure of receiving the 4 handed massage from Phaedra and Adriano and it was wonderful. They are both very intuitive when they work. They created a very calming and restful atmosphere. I’d highly recommend to anyone looking to adding another dimension to their treatment. Thank you so much guys!
