About Christina

Christina is passionate about massage and is qualified to a high level

Christina WarrenChristina founded Pure Urban Massage in January 2011 to provide tailored, bespoke massage treatments that are as soothing or as technical as the client may require.  Trained in classical Swedish and deep tissue styles as well as sports massage, Christina utilises a “toolbox of techniques” to provide massages that are deeply relaxing yet effective to loosen chronically tight muscles caused by sport, stress, injury or physical work.  Every client is unique and Christina’s relaxed, friendly, professional style will allow you to take what you need from your massage: easing aches and pains caused by poor posture, past injury or repetitive motions of sport; recovery from tight, tense muscles, or simply a well-deserved break from everyday stress.

Christina has a professional, caring and person-centred approach.  Her clients vary from busy executives, manual workers (or keen gardeners!), sportspeople – professional athletes or “weekend warriors”, or those simply looking to pamper and treat themselves to a well-deserved bit of “me” time.

Christina is a fully registered member of The Federation of Holistic Therapists, through which she is insured. The FHT requires its therapists to carry out additional training each year on top of existing qualifications (continued professional development or CPD). This ensures skills are kept up to date and topped up with new techniques on a regular basis.  Christina relocated from Bath back to her home county of Suffolk in March 2016, renovating a country cottage in rural eastern Suffolk alongside her massage work, then to the west Suffolk village of Ixworth near her home town of Bury St Edmunds, in September 2018.
