Why choose massage?
Everyone can benefit from massage and it is suitable for most people to receive. Massage offers relief from tension that may be due to physical or emotional causes. Reducing back, neck, shoulder pain, relieving discomfort from repetitive strain injuries, joint pain and much more. I work with you to speed up your recovery, strengthen and improve your posture, helping you to maintain your health and stay out of pain.
Each treatment will be tailored to your specific needs whether you have muscular pain and stiffness from sitting in front of a computer, gardening or playing sport, or if you need to relax body and mind to help relieve the effects stress and anxiety. Massage doesn't have to be really painful to be effective. Pain is your bodies protective mechanism so rather than 'no pain, no gain' I believe in working slowly and sensitively.
How many treatments are required?
It depends on the condition and how long it has been present. In cases of long term chronic conditions one massage may give some comfort but a series of massage is recommended. Think “fix in six”, often 2 – 3 one hour treatments will produce a significant effect. Chronic conditions such as frozen shoulder can take more than six. For long-term medical conditions and illnesses such as fibromyalgia, cancer or HIV a long-term approach with treatments every month or fortnight is beneficial.
Which massage should I choose?
Deep Tissue / Clinical massage or Thai massage work equally well for many conditions so your choice is personal preference. For pure relaxation I can also offer Swedish Holistic massage. Aftercare advice and stretches can be given to enable you to helpyourself at home.
Studies show massage might be beneficial for patients with subacute (lasting four to 12 weeks) and chronic (lasting longer than 12 weeks) non-specific low-back pain, especially when combined with exercises and education.
