Zoe Garnham joins The Soma Room as our first local therapist: born and raised in Ealing! She's travelled and lived abroad but describes herself as a home bird always making her way back to Ealing.
Zoe initially obtained a BSc in fashion sportswear and worked briefly in the fashion industry before deciding to switch careers and go into preventative health and wellness. Her gateway into the industry was as a qualified personal trainer for 3 years. She gained in-depth knowledge of the body mechanics, anatomy and physiology involved in sport, as well as experience working with a diverse range of clients.
Whilst working as a personal trainer and fitness instructor, she continued to broaden her skillset. She certified as a Sports Massage Therapist after completing her 2 year degree in Sports Massage Therapy at St Mary’s University. The course taught Zoe how to conduct subjective and objective assessments, provide treatment modalities to support soft tissue repair, and provide sports massage techniques to prevent and manage injury.
Zoe's massage approach is solution-based. She tailors her treatments to be direct to the primary concern for her clients and works to fix it. Then going beyond the initial treatment experience, Zoe provides her clients with after-care advice so they can prolong the benefits of the massage, empowering them to improve their own physical health.
When she isn't massaging, Zoe enjoys Cross-fit training, competing in various sporting events such as Hyrox and the Ealing Half Marathon and long walks with her dog, Paulo.
Zoe is fully qualified and insured in Sports, Deep Tissue, and Relaxation Massage.

Zoe is wonderful! The massage was very much needed. I didn't realise how tight my body was. It was tense but afterwards I felt so much relief. I would highly recommend anyone to give it a try.60 Minute Deep Tissue Massage
Zoe was great! Paid close attention to the pressure points and the tension areas I pointed out. Would definitely come back!30 Minute Sports Massage
Amazing strong sports massage which has made me feel almost pain free. Thoroughly recommend!30 Minute Sports Massage
I'm very body conscious but Zoe made me feel very comfortable. She was incredibly accurate in finding problem areas and tackled them to her best ability (despite my terrible pain tolerance!). The benefits are quite immediate. I'm looking forward to my next visit and highly recommend Zoe.60 Minute Deep Tissue. Massage
