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

www.dos-manos.com

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.
