MEET THE THERAPISTS
"I've handpicked some of the finest massage therapists in Cambridge to join me in providing high quality massage therapy."
Upon qualifying in 2005, I considered a job well done when my client appeared relaxed at the end of their treatment. Fast forwarding to today, I realise I am only doing a good job when my client is relaxed before their treatment begins.
I have learned that when a client books time for themselves they deserve to be listened to. They have unique needs and expectations and it is my role to exceed these.
So, in answer to the question, my favourite treatments are ones where I have listened to and fully understood the client, and provided the treatment they needed.
I have 15 years dedicated Massage Therapy experience, 10 years experience of teaching Intermediate Level Complementary Therapies to Cambridge University Massage Society and 11 years experience as a Therapist at Neal's Yard Remedies.
I have been a mentor to newly qualified Therapists and have had the pleasure of working independently with over 4000 clients to date. My most recent achievement was to be awarded Fellow status with the FHT for 'Outstanding service and experience in my field'. In 2018 I chose to relocate to new premises and expand my business by bringing together a team of exceptional Associate Therapist's who share my values and vision of supporting people with skill, compassion and efficiency... and so begins a new chapter at Emma Kenny Massage Therapies.

I first discovered the power of aromatherapy and massage while working in a particularly stressful city job. It wasn’t long until I was totally hooked on the benefits these techniques can bring, both physically and emotionally, so after having my first child I retrained so that I could help others find the emotional and physical relief that I had so desperately needed.
I competed my initial diploma in Massage and Essential Oil Science with Neal's Yard Remedies in 2013. Subsequently, I have trained in pregnancy massage and completed a one year Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy Certificate with Jing Advanced Massage Training. I also work as a mentor to students on the Neal’s Yard diploma course.
Through the use of aromatherapy and advanced massage techniques, I aim to create the ideal treatment to help relieve your symptoms, treat the root cause of any pain and leave you with a sense of wellbeing. Having experienced pregnancy twice and had two very different births, I love being able to help sooth both the physical and emotional needs of these special clients during and after pregnancy.

Tania is available on Wednesdays and Sundays, and for On Site Massage by prior arrangement.
I feel that receiving a great massage is simply one of the most wonderful things - and something everyone needs more of in their lives! I believe that massage not only aids and rejuvenates on a physical level, but is deeply beneficial on a spiritual, mental and emotional one too.
I first studied massage 18 years ago and instantly loved the connection and calmness it brought. Since then I've given massages to people in corporate offices in Berlin, at retreats in the English countryside and even on the dance floor at the Wonder events here in Cambridge! I moved to Cambridge in 2018 to be closer to my family and this beautiful city has stolen my heart - after a decade of living abroad and moving around I'm so happy to have found such a lovely, peaceful part of the world to settle in.
I am trained in deep tissue and pregnancy massage and also offer on-site massage therapy in the workplace. My aim is to provide a space in which my clients can slow down, tune in to their body and leave feeling rested and restored. I offer a mindful, meditative massage combining slow, deep, flowing strokes with Amma pressure work, Trigger Point therapy and Myofascial Release. Through communication with each of my clients, I treasure being able to provide them the massage session which is right for them at that moment in time.

I am a Bodyworker and student of Osteopathy. I work with my hands to relieve pain and discomfort using the different modalities which I am trained in. These include; Clinical and deep tissue massage, Sports Massage (not just for athletes!), Trigger point therapy (all about those tender 'knots' in your body), Myofascial release (a gentle yet profoundly deep approach to body mechanics), Advanced stretching techniques (it feels great to let someone else do the stretch for you!) and Orthopaedic tests as used by Physio's - for when that joint just wont move.
You don't need to know the difference between these techniques before you come and see me. It is my job to understand your concern and find the most appropriate tools in my toolbox to help you. I will be moving you around and asking you questions throughout your session to work effectively, in this way the sessions are quite different from other massage styles.
