SHIZEN Wellness (vegan)

www.shizenwellness.com

Hello, I’m Hana Fujimoto and I am fascinated by the body in all its powers.
I was raised by my Japanese mother who practiced energy healing and used natural remedies throughout my life. I grew up with a spiritual awareness and having a holistic approach to wellbeing which has led me to this path today.

I am deeply passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and harnessing natural methods to support the mind and body. I am a holistic massage practitioner and am currently training in Aromatherapy to integrate the therapeutic use of essential oils.

I’m interested in working with women, having healed my own hormonal imbalances through lifestyle shifts and natural medicine. I am constantly seeking to expand my knowledge and plan to focus more deeply on the female anatomy.

SHIZEN Wellness aims to be a sustainable company, and so everything I use in treatment is vegan and ethically sourced.

Dos Manos Massage

Dos Manos delivers professional mobile massages to your home, office, or hotel in Bristol.

​​I’ve just moved from London (recently moved to a plant based diet as well) to be closer to my two little nieces here in Bristol and am relocating my mobile massage practice here too.

I have aimed to challenge the carbon footprint left by modern spas with high laundry outputs and chemical cleaning to a more natural approach. Using sustainably sourced vegan bed linens to natural and organic oil (vegan and not animal tested) during the massage.

I’ve developed a unique customer experience where everything needed is provided for a deeply relaxing, hassle free massage. All delivered in the comfort of your own home, no need to rush off into the busy world within 5 minutes of finishing your spa massage anymore…

Black Sheep Tattoo

www.paulacastle.com

Currently in her sixth year of tattooing, Paula Castle has been lucky enough to travel extensively and tattoo alongside some of the best artists around.

While working in other studios Paula realised that for most people being tattooed can be a daunting experience. She struggles with anxiety herself and understands how difficult getting tattooed can be, not to mention wanting to have more personal areas of the body tattooed, and feeling comfortable enough to be relaxed and exposed whilst making the ultimate change to your skin. That’s why she created Black Sheep.

Lots of Tattoo Studios boast being “vegan friendly” and that’s great. However most of these are simply saying so because they use vegan ink. Well, that’s just not enough. Black Sheep is a fully vegan and eco conscious studio. All products are vegan, we use plant based single use barriers for each tattoo set up. We strive to reduce waste and recycle everything possible. The studio itself is fitted using repurposed furniture and wood, LED energy saving lighting, eco-paint and lots of lovely vintage pieces. I am also vegan myself. Supporting vegan small businesses goes further than apparel and food.

 

Bloop

123 Oxford Street, Totterdown, Bristol BS3 4RH

Who’s doing veganuary? 🙋‍♀️ Don’t forget that toiletries and cleaning products can be vegan too, but it’s not just about the actual ingredients.

For products to be cruelty-free they must not be tested on animals but they may still have animal-derived ingredients, like honey, silk etc. If you’re avoiding animal cruelty entirely, look out for products that are labelled cruelty-free AND vegan. Vegan-friendly products are made without using any ingredients or derivatives from animal origins, and are not tested on animals.

Hairy Jayne makes hair care products that help women take better care of their dry hair – with a choice of divine fragrances. The products are made from the best moisturising ingredients available. Naturally derived, vegan ingredients that cause the least harm to us on our skin, and the least harm to our world when they end up down the plug. Sulfates and parabens are out, and plant oils and fragrant essential oils are definitely in. All of the products have been registered with the Vegan Society and are 100% cruelty free.

Her customers started asking if they could return their bottles shortly after Blue Planet was first aired.

We stock household products from companies that are ethical, use sustainable resources and are in no way associated with animal cruelty. We’ve tried to find a broad range of products to suit all budgets – from local makers who use the most natural and high-end ingredients and packaging to ethical companies who mass produce their products (making them cheaper). Hopefully there’s something for everyone! We have a plastic free / refill shop called bloop.
