Body Sanctuary

About Me


Hello, and a very warm welcome. Let me introduce myself. My name is Theresa Kerr and I am a qualified mental health nurse and holistic massage/sound therapist. My interest in complementary therapies derives from my lifelong passion and commitment to all aspects of healthcare. 

As a practitioner working within healthcare, over my 26 years of caring I have come to learn and value the benefits of complementary approaches to healthcare. I have also been privileged to experience first-hand the positive influence that both therapeutic touch and sound in particular can have on the successful recovery of individuals. 

 Historically, massage and sound have existed for centuries, and to this day remain widely practised within Eastern cultures. As such, their application is valued as an integral part of the practice of medicine. Sadly, in my experience this integrated approach to healthcare is not often the case in Western cultures, and unfortunately, it is our bodies and minds that are left to deal with the all too often damaging effects of modern living. 

 My philosophy is simple: I believe that at the core of every living being is an innate desire to become balanced and whole. Thus, the aim of Plymouth Body Sanctuary is to offer clients a professional and accredited practice that will help them restore their body’s natural balance. Whether you have specific aches and pains, or just need that special space to unwind, relax or rejuvenate; Body Sanctuary aims to provide a person-centred approach to your treatment that will enable you to re-connect with your whole being: body, mind and soul.
