Profile - About Charlie Mackinlay

Photo of Charlie

After qualifying as a Swedish massage therapist in 2006, I continued my study in learning additional skills towards building my practice and then I finally set up Knots-Therapy in March 2011.

I believe that good health and well-being are an important part of everyday life.

I embarked on my own personal journey, which inspired me to heal and help people.

I have travelled widely, which has given me an insight into different cultures and ways of holistically treating ailments, which I feel has inspired me in my work and the practices that I use.

Treatments can be firm or gentle to suit each individual and although I follow a general routine, each treatment is tailored to suit my clients specific needs.

Where to find me

You will find me at the stunning Encore Wellness Centre which is in the centre of Needham Market. Parking is ample, close by and free.


I am a regular fund raiser for Cancer Campaign in Suffolk who support individuals and their families who are faced with this awful disease. I lost my mother in 1992 after a long battle with cancer when I was just 19. Back in the 90’s the information provided for families was very limited. I have since had friends experience this amazing service and found it incredibly beneficial. Since 2008 i have raised over £2000.
