Hannah Fletcher

Massage Therapist

Hello! 

My journey into bodywork began in 2008 after the realisation that an office-based career just wasn't for me. I've worked in retail and customer service based roles for most of my life and I'm good at it because I care about meeting peoples needs. Massage was an evolution of the drive to improve peoples lives. 

I had the honor of being the In-House Massage Therapist at No.14 Verbier in Switzerland for 4 years. Mornings challenging myself on the slopes and afternoons massaging in a luxurious 5*chalet was a fabulous way to work. After many nomadic years I felt the call of 'home' and Winchester is so beautiful and vibrant that I love being here. Working at New Energy Fitness and New Energy Yoga means I am surrounded by wonderful, knowledgeable, energetic passionate people and I couldn't have found a better place to be. 

I suffered from whiplash received in car accidents in my twenties which has given me a really good understanding of how to help your body recover. I was told I wouldn't be to run or ski - I run most days and have done 5 ski seasons and am almost entirely pain-free. It can be a slow process but regaining strength and mobility is achievable.

I love trying new sports and pursuits. I don't aim to excel merely to enjoy! I love surfing although spend far more time in the water than on a board. Living in Hampshire provides plenty of gorgeous walks (with great pub lunch stops). Yoga is how I unwind my body and mind and set myself up for the day, for me a Yin yoga class is a great alternative to a holiday when time is not abundant.

Festivals

Since 2009 I have offered massage at festivals across the UK. Festivals are a wonderful way to bring massage to people who may not otherwise have ever tried massage! I love being able to talk to people and answer their questions about what I do and how massage can be of benefit.

I have worked at a wonderfully diverse range of festivals from offering 20 minute 'recharge' massages for parents and children in The Kids Field at Camp Bestival to wet shaves for heavy metal fans at Download. Wether people are looking for something to undo the stresses of lugging camping equipment across fields, a heavy night partying to gypsy swing music or undoing several nights of discomfort thanks to a leaking airbed I am on hand to help!

This year I will be at Kendall Calling, Bloodstock and End Of The Road.

New Energy Fitness

I have a room at New Energy Fitness, in the heart of Winchester city. It is a friendly and vibrant gym with a welcoming and inclusive ethos. 

You will have access to toilets, showers and a refreshments area serving teas and coffees.

 

Parking is right next to gym at Middle Brook Street Car Park.

GDPR

GDPR and your information. 

As your therapist I store your information in 2 ways:

a) On the Client Questionnaire you fill in when you come for a treatment with me.

This is kept in a locked filing cabinet. For insurance reasons I will keep this for 3 years after you stop seeing me for treatment, at which point it will be destroyed. I have this information as a record of your treatment, to provide the most informed treatment I can. Is is for me to help you and is not something that I generate profit from.

b) On my computer( which is password protected)

 

This is to enable me to process the necessary information to establish and maintain support. I will use the contact details you provide me with to confirm your appointment, so that we can make any adjustment to your appointment times and I can let you know if I have any extra availability, am away or have any special things happening. Your details will only ever be shared with your consent. Again this information will be kept as long as is required.

 

Under these terms I am not required to register for GDPR.   

If you have any queries please do get in contact and we can discuss further.
