PoSitive Body Health was first established in 1994 by me, Pauline Baxter.
At that time I had been working full time within health & fitness club management for almost 10 years, the last 6 of which were as a Health Club Manager here in Reading.
Having spent so many years helping people improve their health and fitness, it was a natural progression to move into the health and wellbeing of massage therapy or to put it another way.... 'having spent 10 years making people's muscles ache it was time to make them feel better...!
'Since embarking on a massage career, I have gone on to train in Seated Acupressure (On Site) Massage, Sports Massage, Indian Head Massage, Hopi Ear Candles, Aromatherapy, PureStretch, Beaming and other Therapies.
In 2000 I became a tutor with the Academy of On Site Massage (www.aosm.co.uk), who specialise in Seated Acupressure Massage and offer the most thorough training available.
In 2006 I became a Director and owner of Academy of On Site Massage. In the words of the famous advert, 'I loved it so much I bought the company'!
The Academy offers a range of training courses across the UK, is a major provider of practitioners to businesses through its corporate division, Business Massage Company, and is responsible for the On Site Massage Association, an Association for qualified On Site Therapy Practitioners.
