All treatments are unique and bespoke.
My Massage Practice incorporates Swedish, Remedial, Deep Tissue, and Hot Stone Techniques. The Bodywork element includes Myofascial Release, Assisted Stretching and Soft Tissue Release.
Each treatment is tailor made to meet the needs of the client and I utilise whichever techniques are appropriate and agreed upon during consultaion prior to treatment. I also adapt my treatments to what I find as I am working, identifying areas of tension through touch and working to relieve them. Find out more about your treatment
Whatever the main purpose of your massage I will always aim to make it as relaxing as possible.
For me, relaxation is key as I believe that the body has the ability to heal itself given the right circumstances. Firstly, I have always believed that, treating injuries and pain by implementing deep tissue techniques to the point at which they cause pain, is a flawed technique. Some clients expect pain and believe that if it hurts it is doing good. I disagree with this approach. The body's first response to pain is to tense up which is counterproductive.
Secondly, a body which houses a mind suffering the effects of chronic stress is not in the right condition to heal. Increasingly I see evidence that the body and the mind are not separate entities but very much interlinked. The stress response is immensely powerful and very useful in life threatening situations but when continually active on a daily basis it is toxic and results in all manner of pain and ill health both physically and mentally.
