Based in and around the idyllic town of Woodbridge, Suffolk


A bit about me,

Louise Nightingale ATT, ITEC Dip. Mass

It all started when, 17 years ago, I moved from my home in the Channel Islands to the UK. At that point I decided to opt for a career change to do something I was passionate about after being a qualified Tax Professional.

I started my new career as a personal trainer and gym instructor. I believe it is crucial in order to understand and learn that you start at grass roots level. I went to work for a large busy branded golf and country club in the heart of Kent where I was a gym instructor and personal trainer. I went on to become their first freelance personal trainer. 

In the process of this work I wanted to look at the whole person not just the gym bunny. I had come across many different injuries and physical problems including overuse injuries. I then trained to become a therapeutic masseur leading on to sports massage, an invaluable skill which, combined with my love of anatomy and physiology, fitted alongside my existing work perfectly. I sought as much experience as I could working with many different clients eventually setting up my business in 2002.

I continued to develop professionally and become a reiki level 2 healer in 2003. I continued with the business when I had my son in 2004 and then in 2005 moved up to Suffolk to be near existing family.

In 2013 I trained as a Stott pilates instructor. Again this fusing all my skills and enabling me to focus on class work as well as individual one to one private pilates clients. Pilates is a wonderful exercise and discipline with fantastic results. The reason I chose this particular type of pilates is that it has been designed based on the original Joseph Pilates principles but enhanced with the collaboration of physical therapists, sports and fitness professionals. This makes it a perfect addition to the business and skill set.


"Practice makes perfect but I’m here to ensure perfect practice."

What I Can Offer You



60 minutes. I teach Stott Pilates which is a contemporary adaptation of the original exercise method pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates. It has been adapted bio mechanically with the collaboration of fitness, sports and physical professionals. It was a natural progression of my existing work and love of anatomy and physiology.


Sports & Therapeutic Massage

Not just for those who do sport, if you are engaged in any sport either professionally or as a leisure pursuit then either Sport or Therapeutic Massage is highly recommended. Importantly, it can provide an early warning to the risk of potential injury but also help you to train and exercise at your most effective. Other benefits include treatment for muscle pains, reducing swelling, reducing tension and many more.

Personal Training

60 minutes. Aiming to help you learn, what works for you, not just telling you what to do. Implementing a plan that both myself and you the client believe is realistic and achievable.

Wellbeing & Health

Many people could benefit from an informed, but sympathetic and personal consultation on various aspects of their lifestyle and nutrition, which have an immediate impact on their sense of well being.

Reiki Healing

60 minutes. Developed nearly a hundred years ago. Reiki means ‘Universal Life Force Energy’. As an attuned healer I carefully place my hands over the body from head to feet to promote physical and / or mental healing. The client is fully clothed and it is extremely relaxing.
