About The Olive Retreat


I'm Hannah, owner of The Olive Retreat massage therapy and Little Olives Baby Massage.

Massage has always been a passion of mine, a wonderful holistic healing process that never fails to rebalance aching muscles or a busy mind. 

I was inspired to become a therapist myself during my first pregnancy and have since gained numerous qualifications, starting my journey with one of the UK's leading therapy training colleges, Champneys.

I have been lucky enough to experience massage all over the world, from traditional Thai massage to in-water massage in geothermal waters in Iceland. I love to learn about massage in different cultures and hope to bring elements from my travels, to my practise with The Olive Retreat.

The Olive Retreat offers luxury massage and facial therapy from a relaxing treatment room on the outskirts of Banbury. I feel that massage should be a holistic treatment, benefitting the client's mind and wellbeing as much their aching joints and muscles. I aim to create a relaxing atmosphere, to soothe your senses and help you to achieve the best possible results from your massage. Expect a range of blended aromatherapy oils for your treatment, soothing music in the background and a relaxing blend diffusing to complete the ambience. I tailor the massage to suit you, using your consultation to determine the best massage oil for your individual needs at the time of the appointment. 

As a Neals Yard Remedies Consultant, I use NYR massage oils in of my treatments. I am hugely proud to be a part of this world-leading, natural, ethical company. As well as using NYR oils, aromatherapy blends and beauty products, I also stock a number of products for sale, and orders can be placed by messaging me directly or through my Neal's Yard Remedies consultant page.
