Do you suffer from:

  • Back pain, neck and shoulder pain?
    Tight muscles, painful areas and constriction in your body?
  • Are you recovering from an injury or are you a sporty person who wants to avoid injury?
  • Have you been working from home and are feeling the aches and pains in your back and shoulders?
  • Do you feel stressed and just need a break?

I can help!

I have been working as a Massage Therapist since 2004. I have worked in many different environments, such as in corporate office treatment rooms, government, Casino/poker games and other sports events, as well as with private clients.

I am known to find the knots and fix them. You can choose whether you want a rather remedial massage, that is more specific and uses deeper pressure, to remedy knots and tense areas of restriction or if you would like to have a more therapeutic (relaxing) massage that works on releasing sress. You can also have a mixture of both. My treatments are tailor made according to what you need. No cookie cutter procedures.

I am trained in many different modalities, such as bodywork, energetic healing, as well as mental/emotional wellness modalities, such as Hypnotherapy, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), Matrix Reimprinting and more.

I am passionate about health, wellbeing and living a healthy lifestyle and I love helping people living a healthier, more fulfilled life.

Types Of Massage

Broadly speaking there are two main categories of massage, and most massage therapies fit into these two groups:

Remedial Massage & Therapeutic Massage.

Remedial Massage Category

Remedial massage therapy is generally designed to improve range of motion and reduce pain in restricted or injured areas of the body. It’s also used to prevent and treat injuries.

Deep tissue Massage: Similar to Swedish Massage, rhytmical flowing strokes, but deeper pressure. Reduces tension in the body and enhances recovery from execise and injury. Targets the deper layers of the muscles and the fascia, (the connective tissue around the muscles). Unlocks restricted areas and rigid tissue.

Remedial Massage: Targeted massage, that identifies specific restricted areas in the body and treats them using specialist techniques (neuromuscular techniques, soft tissue release, trigger point deactivation, etc).

Sports Massage: The traditinal aim is to prepare the body for exercise, but it’s also beneficial for people who engage in regular physical activity. It treats the muscles and may need your active participation.

The above terms may often be used interchangeably, but are slightly different.

Therapeutic Massage Category

Therapeutic massage generally focuses on your overall well being and is designed to promote good health through a reduction in stress, improved circulation and immune system function. This form of massage therapy aims to boost your physical and emotional wellbeing.

Swedish Massage (also called Holistic Massage): The most common form of therapeutic massage therapy. Swedish massage is a more ‘gentle’ form of massage and is used for relaxation, rather than relieving tension in specific areas. It uses a combination of rhythmical flowing strokes.

Prices

30 Minutes £30

A short muscle tune up or relaxation session, if you only want to work on specific areas.

Most people like 60 minute sessions. This is a good time to release tension patterns and stress in certain areas (e.g. back) or for a full body massage.

90 minutes £75

Treat yourself to a longer session.  A great time to combine  remedial massage with therapeutic massage, or just  have a therapeutic massage.
