"Melhor" is Portuguese for "better or best"  Giving the best treatment, advice and follow up care I can will help you get to where you want to be physically, mentally and emotionally.​​


Darren Currell

I first studied massage in 1989 after moving to Bristol from The Chew Valley area of North Somerset with work with The Body Shop. We worked on community projects for the elderly, sensory deprived and terminally ill adults and children in Bristol and Bath. I then treated privately in the U.K and whilst working on the Greek islands.

After moving to London in 1998 I began to study different techniques and travelled to Brazil to become more adept at my craft learning several new aspects of massage there. I played the Brazilian sport/dance of Capoeira which taught me a lot about the human body, it's form and what it can accomplish. I taught myself Portuguese on my return to the UK.

How it all began

London & Brazil

2004 saw a move to Brighton & Hove and a career change working at L.A Fitness gym where i learned a lot about the body and how exercise and stretching help with muscle development and protection.


I began to gain more confidence and take massage more seriously and retrained in Swedish Massage, Sports Massage, Hot Stone, Indian Head massage, Thai Foot massage and gained some full body Thai massage techniques to add to the mix.

I also qualified as a teacher of adults, level 2 British Sign Language and Level 2 Health and Social care.

Reiki how my energy work began

Reiki Healing was my next discovery.

Reiki helps to balance your vibration, calming, uplifting or stimulating whilst re-tuning energy lines and removing blockages in Chakras and meridian lines.,  

The diversity of Reiki helps the body, mind and soul and has amazing effects on animals and plants also.

Male Waxing

In 2013 I studied Male Waxing and in 2014 progressed to Intimate Male Waxing where I had the privilege to give clients a warm and friendly yet professional treatment for an intimate and occasionally uncomfortable yet very rewarding service. Removing hair from the body can help improve performance during sport; especially in swimming, running and cycling. It helps maintain good levels of personal hygiene, boosts self confidence, aids the display of muscle definition and looks good.

In 2015 I added Pedicures, Natural Lift Facial Massage to my treatments menu and I also become a Reiki master so Reiki workshops are also available.

Tarot & Mediumship

2016/17 were pivotal years in my life and spiritual development when my dad and mum passed to spirit  The world became a little less sunny for a long time and some days still does, but my mediumship and clairvoyancy began to develop. I am still having tutoring from two of the best mediums in the Brighton & Hove; Brian Oxley and Louise Eaton. My tarot readings continue to improve and hopefully the next step will be platform work
