Ben Taylor

“I regard myself as a mindful, considerate and capable practitioner, using my experiences of training and my travels around the world to create therapies and sessions individually tailored to ensure the most can be offered to each person, each visit.

I am dedicated to, and sincerely aim to help through the treatments I offer. As a professional therapist, member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists, daily meditator and keen observer, I offer my time generously and deliberately so that each session ensures your comfort and confidence and will not take time from your therapy. I focus on individual care with a holistic approach to health.”

Ben is from York and is a qualified, insured and experienced therapeutic massage therapist.  His first professional training, in 2007, was after lifelong experience of holistic and complementary therapies.  He studied hot stone therapy in New Zealand where he also practiced Chi Kung and was trained in the ‘rejuvenation’ therapy.  After further training Ben became self employed as a massage and holistic therapist in 2010 creating Blue Frog therapies in 2012.  He is a qualified Reiki practitioner, has certificates in Indian head massage, seated massage and has been meditating for 15 years.  He learned meditation throughout his travels around the world from different faiths, cultures and agendas.  Ben uses his experience to work with both the physical body to release tension and stress, and the non physical body for balance and integration of relaxation and mindfulness into everyday life.

In 2017 he received a diploma in sports massage therapy as part of his continuing professional development.

Since 2016 Blue frog therapies with Ben as practitioner has won multiple independent and reputable awards including the Luxury Travel Guide’s 2018 spa and wellness award as ‘Uk Urban Massage Salon of the year’.


I was born in Italy but l lived in different countries in the middle East with my family. Moving so often made me see how the world is an interesting place, full of possibilities. Growing up surrounded by people from everywhere, different religions and different approaches to life , it is definitely something l am thankful for and as an adult l kept travelling for fun and studying.

Years ago l started to study massage, just as a hobby, dedicating all my free time to it. l am passionate about it. l take people’s physical and emotional health very seriously and, if l could contribute to improve it, nothing would make me happier.

More recently I became a sports massage therapist and am studying onward to become a physiotherapist.

Humbled by how little I still know about physical, emotional and spiritual health, I still dedicate myself to learn more, acquire more knowledge and to be of service.

Through my own journey with health and well being I realised how our body had a strong impact on our mind. For me, this was a discovery, as l always considered my brain the only relevant part of me. I came to realise how physical pain , fatigue and discomfort can impact our life and mind, to the point of changing who we are. I learned that, in most cases, this process can be reversed.

I believe that holistic therapies, along with a healthy life style, help our body and mind to be in balance.

Massage is one of the many valuable tools to get rid of the extra emotional and physical burden.

I consider a massage to be a reset button.

I appreciate the remedial side of the therapy as an undeniable pain management technique. My aim is, in fact, to keep studying and researching to acquire new skills to help people to live a pain-free life. There is more than that to massage therapy: a good session could help your mind to get back to “the centre” and, in this place, you can heal.

Sometimes all we need is a break and we can take care of the rest.
