WHAT WE OFFER

Our Treatments

Injury Treatment Package

If you have chronic pain, a block of weekly appointments will aid in your healing process.

6 x 1 hour appointment on consecutive weeks will be initially booked for maximum results.

After 4 weeks we will do a review to see if you require two more weekly massages or two every other week.

45 and 90 Minute Massage

The perfect massage to release tension in your back, neck, shoulders, or lower body is our 45 minute massage, 1 hour appointment.

If you require longer time or additional areas which need looking at then the 90 minute massage, 2 hour appointment, may be more suitable. If you’d like advice on which one to book then please contact me to chat about it.

As with all our appointments, a pre-massage assessment will be conducted.

Monthly Massage Package

Scheduling in a monthly massage takes the pressure off you when life is busy.

We usually don’t remember about booking an appointment until we are aching and in pain, so by booking your appointment in advance, you won’t have to worry about getting to that point.

You can schedule your appointments 3 or 6 months in advance.

This is also a great gift option too, see voucher link below.

Self Help Support

We all go through periods where our lives are so fast paced. Those frustrating aches and pains seem to creep up on us and we need an instant solution!

I’ve created these self help sheets with you in mind. You can do them at home and at work whilst waiting for your next appointment.

Please make sure these are done with care and if you feel any pain or discomfort, you must stop.

Gift Voucher

Giving the gift of a massage is such a caring and thoughtful thing to give.

What’s even better, is a couple of months of massages because then they don’t even need to think about taking time out for themselves.

I’ve also found that when we have pre-booked appointments already in the diary, it gives you something to look forward to; it’s such a lovely gift to give both mentally and physically.

You can either book online, via the button above, or send me a message.

Pre-Event Massage

Getting your body and tissues ready for the race or event ahead? This fast, brisk pace and not too deep massage is best done just before your event.

It helps twofold – mentally to help you focus on the race and also to help to ward off injury by preparing your muscles and joints.

Post-Event Massage

After an event, a slow, rhythmical and gentle massage is a great way to soothe and ease fatigued and tired tissues. It can also prevent Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS). A post-event massage usually lasts for about 15-20 minutes.

Our Massage Techniques

During your massage session, several different techniques will be used at different stages of the massage to provide the best treatment. They will vary from client to client and your massage sessions.

Here are a couple of the techniques I use, explained.

Effleurage

Most commonly used at the start of a session, and its purposes are to relax my client, relax the muscles, warm the tissues, and allow the therapist to stimulate the nerves and increase lymph and blood flow, and to also sense the condition of your muscles and tissues.

Myofascial Release

Used to alleviate tension in the fascia (connective tissues that surround your muscles, bones, nerve and organs) due to trim, posture of inflammation. A therapist would use a thumb or elbow, whereas you may heard of using a foam roller or rolling pin at home. In both instances, this technique is applied to tight muscles and fascia in an effort to get them to ‘release’ and alleviate pain, tension, restrictions and adhesions in order to restore balance and function.

Muscle Energy Technique

Using a muscle’s own energy in the form of gentle isometric contractions, Muscle Energy Technique (MET) will relax the muscle via reciprocal inhibition (stretching the opposite muscle) and lengthen the muscle too. Compared to static stretching, a passive technique where the massage therapist does all the work, MET is an active technique in which you also have an active participant.

Soft Tissue Release

Soft Tissue Release (STR) aim is to remove physical (adhesive) restrictions in the muscle to increase its range of movement and mobility. It involves repeatedly and quickly stretching small areas of the soft tissue. Precise pressure is applied to part of the muscle which is then moved to achieve a very specific stretch.
