About Us

The Balance & Harmony Of Body and Mind

Award-Winning Wellness Practitioners At Your Service

I started the Massage or Knot Wellness Clinic, currently based in Newquay, Cornwall, back in 2000 in the beautiful healing city of Bath. I have more than 25 years experience and have worked with clients across the world from all walks of life. During my time as a therapist I have been privileged to treat some famous Hollywood producers, singers, professional athletes and celebrities, as well as being honoured to help and care for people in chronic pain, depression and despair, in homeless shelters and during end of life care. 

The popularity of our Clinic is growing every day and all our Practitioners are handpicked and trained by myself, to ensure we deliver the most exclusive healing and result driven journey for your mind, body and soul. We humans are all the same and we all need love, care and happiness.  

We are looking forward to welcome you at our Wellbeing Hub soon!

Martina Crkonova, BSc (Hons)

Therapy Expert  

(aka The Massage Guru)

Even if you feel healthy, you may be worried about what could lie ahead. I am here to advise you on what would be best for your health and well being for the years ahead.

The stress we deal with on this planet is in some ways unavoidable, but there is still so much we can do. We can lead a life where we

truly know what it’s like to feel healthy. Our bodies, hearts, souls and minds can have more peace and joy. You deserve to feel your best. It’s your right to know how to heal. That’s exactly what I’m here for. To guide and support you in knowing how to heal. I can give you the information, steps and tools to move forward so you can know and understand just how good you can feel. I began my journey in wellbeing and healing back in 1997 as a sports physiotherapist; working with professional athletes, including an Olympic team, in my home country, Slovakia. 

My personal mission is "Changing the world's health one person at a  time". I believe that change begins the moment people become educated about their bodies. I have realised that my purpose in life is helping people. As a result, I have dedicated myself to educating individuals on the complexity of disease and encouraging healthy lifestyle habits. More especially, I now plan to educate all those who want to get well and stay well on the benefits of CBD, and to influence the standards and efficiency surrounding hemp research and applications after graduating from the International Cannabinoid Therapy Clinical Mastery studies.

My passion for how the human body functions, my interest in how to fix or, better still, prevent injury and disease, led me to enhance my knowledge. I am highly skilled in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), reflexology, water therapies, EFT (Emotional Freedom Therapy), nutrition and clinical herbalism after spending many years learning with Masters of healing in China, Thailand, California and Europe. 

For years, decades even, you may have been searching for ways to feel healthier, happier, and lighter. You may have struggled with the lack of energy and strength to get through the long days and trials of life. Or, like many, you may have spent endless hours online and with

doctors, counsellors and health practitioners desperately seeking ways for you and your loved ones to feel better. After all of this, you may not be feeling much better at all. In fact you might be more confused and overwhelmed than ever before at the conflicting information at every turn. 

That is why you should give me a call and book yourself a treatment and start your wellbeing journey with my expert guidance.

Ms. Ellie Charman

Reflexology & Reiki Expert


We welcomed Ellie to our clinic straight after Lockdown in 2021. We are absolutely thrilled to have her in our team!

In Ellie's words: 

'I have a holistic approach to health and wellbeing: as well as my passion for complementary therapies I am a trained nurse with over a decade’s professional nursing experience. I believe in treating a person as a whole; seeing health as the sum of many physical, emotional mental and spiritual factors; and in the importance of preventing as well as treating disease.

I am particularly interested in the effects of stress on our health and wellbeing and I have taken additional training in mindful reflexology to support clients with stress, anxiety and depression. I love seeing how effective treatments can be in reducing stress levels, helping people to feel more balanced, grounded and able to cope with whatever challenges they may be facing.'

Ms. Heike Beelert

Sport Massage Therapist

My therapeutic journey began with a Sports related injury that forced me to change track. Wanting to understand what went wrong with my health and what could be done to improve it led me to ask questions and to look things up in medical books. This self directed health interest soon became a more general one.

Through coaching and by being engaged in various physical activities myself, I already had a good understanding of training and exercise. I had also been interested in both physiotherapy and massage for a long time and was looking for pathways into these professions. I appreciated the way massage helped to restore tired bodies and rejuvenate weary minds and I liked the active approach of physiotherapy to overcoming difficulty.

I spend some time learning about and practising acupressure. 

It is absolutely paramount for me to work with people. I love helping others and I am passionate about human movement. Be that to test one's boundaries, for work or as self expression – I believe that making the most of our physical and mental capacities is important in human growth. Other than that, moving well just feels good!

I thrive when I am able to help people overcome difficulties. I developed good observation skills from previous studies and I problem solve effectively. This lead to excellent results in my coaching life and seems to transfer well to the clinical reasoning needed in my role as a soft tissue therapist.

My clients describe me as very encouraging, incredibly kind and inspiring.

My aim is to give people the best tools to help themselves but to also support them as well as possible on their therapeutic journeys. I use effective listening, visual and physical examination, manual therapy and exercise prescription to address minor and chronic musculoskeletal injuries and conditions.

I am thrilled to work along such inspiring professionals at the Massage Or Knot Wellness Clinic!
