Tanya is an experienced massage therapist with clients across Sussex.  Specialisms include aromatherapy massage, deep tissue, head & facial massage, hot stones, pregnancy and oncology massage.  Treatments are tailored to the individual patient.

I enjoy treating people from all walks of life.  It is rewarding when new people experience the benefits of massage for the first time and see what a big difference it can make to their fitness and wellbeing. It’s good to see that more people are investing in their own health and I have been treating a lot of my patients now for several years’.

With a keen interest in the science behind massage, it has been established that treatments are proven to boost the immune system, improve circulation, keep muscles and joints flexible and aid recovery.  Overall massage provides a myriad of physical and mental health benefits.

Having previously taught fitness classes to adults and children, in 2020 when lockdown hit Tanya turned to Pilates to keep fit at home and loved it!  Taking advice from her physio colleagues she decided to train to teach with APPI (the Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute) as this method would provide a clinical form of Pilates which would be beneficial for many patients.

Paramount in her decision to train was the proven results which Tanya saw for herself.  Having sustained a prolapsed cervical disc which left her with muscle weakness and spasms if she over trained, practising Pilates made a huge difference and demonstrated what excellent results can be achieved.

The APPI Method has taken the original 34 Joseph Pilates exercises and adapted them so they are suitable for patients working at a wide variety of levels, from people who are new to exercise to those who are accomplished athletes.  Pilates builds strength, stability, flexibility and a strong core that will help prevent back pain.  Everyday tasks become easier and it is an exercise form that can be practised at any age.  Tanya has also completed Pilates for Healthy Bones training as she has a special interest in Osteoporosis, how Pilates can help prevent it and how patients with lower bone density can still exercise safely.

Tanya offers 1:1 Pilates sessions and small group classes.

Treatments offered by Tanya are –

  • Aromatherapy
  • Pregnancy
  • Hot Stones Massage
  • Indian Head Massage
  • Uplifting Facial Massage
  • Oncology Massage

Testimonials

Read what our patients have to say.

I saw Kirk today regarding a very painful ankle. I found him to be very professional and has a very kind manner. I trust him to help me back to walking properly again soon.

Mandy Baker

Both myself and my son have been treated here, at the Health Hub. The staff are helpful and really friendly and the decor/ambience calming and professional. We have been treated by both Sam and Kirk – and both have been extremely helpful and knowledgeable, but also flexible and understanding. Kirk’s physio has helped me to make huge progress and reduce daily discomfort/increase flexibility. He has a lovely manner and goes out of his way to put you at ease and help you to progress. I would thoroughly recommend the Health Hub.

Nikki Dickinson

I’ve been recommending Sam for years as he has done so much for my mobility. The Health Hub is a very welcoming environment and I enjoy my chats with Maggie – seem to learn something every time! With Covid-19 they are very thorough with their cleansing and wearing of PPE, so patients should feel very safe.

Pat Squire

It is due to a number of practitioners, now at the Health Hub, that my recovery from a serious injury was the successful. I cannot praise Jodie and Tina enough for their knowledge, advice and support in 2018, which expedited my recovery giving me the opportunityto continue pursuing my sporting hobbies. I am so thankful they continue to deliver their skills from a new base, which houses the best professionals in the area. I have often joked with Sam that I need a sports top saying ‘This body has been rebuilt and regularly serviced by The Health Hub’.

Derek Middlehurst

Absolutely brilliant after having loads of treatment via the NHS that failed Sam sorted my shoulder out in very few visits. I would and do recommend this practise to all my friends.

Dawn Fennelly

I had a great sports/therapeutic massage with Tina Towler today. This was exceptional and I used Sam for back issues in the past. The Health Hub is exceptional in decor and organisation. It was a really good vibe it there today with loads on street parking available just outside. Great experience, thank you for today. Lovely place to go to.
