Multi-session Packages

In a single session I can address the immediate pain or help your body relax, but getting to the real issue will often require more work from both you and a therapist. Due to this I offer a discounted booking for 5 sessions, depending on your needs, which can be discussed at the initial appointment.

Sports Event Package

Bookings available for pre, intra and post event massage at your sporting events.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

A hands-on deep tissue massage, soft tissue manipulation and joint mobilisation to ease pain caused through everyday activities such as; work, driving, sports, gardening, looking after children and other general stresses of life.

Deep tissue massage works very slowly gradually allowing the tissues to yield to the repetitive deep strokes, layer by layer. A gradual connection is made to deeper soft tissues of the body in order to realign them. Areas of pain and tension are targeted and stiff, knotted areas and adhesions are slowly worked on. The aim is to soften and break down the rigid tissue which causes pain and stiffness.

SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY

Sports massage is a specialised treatment that benefits someone who is regularly participating in physical activity or sports. Sports massage may be used to enhance both recovery and performance when used prior to or after exercise. I can also help with correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive activity and trauma.

Sports massage used after an event enhances your body’s own recovery process. Therefore when you’re taking part in intense training or competitions, sports massage reduces the time your body needs to recover. Faster recovery means you can train more; making greater gains to fitness without increasing your risk of injury. You can also benefit from massage before important events to loosen the muscles and prepare for optimum performance.

In any sport regular massage can be particularly helpful during the most intense and heavy training periods, it assists and promotes quicker recovery and helps keep overuse injuries at bay. 

Hot Stone Massage

A hot stone massageis used to help you relax, ease tense muscles and damaged soft tissues throughout your body. During a hot stone massage, smooth, flat, heated stones are placed on specific parts of your body. The stones are usually made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat. 

Sometimes, cold stones are also used during a hot stone massage. Cold stones may be used after hot stones to calm any engorged blood vessels and to soothe the skin. 

This type of massage helps relieve muscle tension and pain, reduces stress and anxiety, promotes sleep and can relieve symptoms of autoimmune diseases such as fibromyalgia.

Soft Cupping Therapy

Cupping in various forms has been universally practiced by healers and traditionally in the home for centuries in many cultures. Evidence of cupping exists in China as far back as 3000 BC.  

The aim of cupping is to create vacuum. This encourages blood flow to the surrounding area causing a small inflammatory effect, which in turn triggers the body’s natural healing response. Where there are toxins and cellular debris present, cupping draws it to the body’s surface, where it can be safely removed by the Lymphatic system. 

Cupping therapy has many benefits: improved circulation, dealing with muscular and skeletal problems, improving skin tone and texture, helps soften old scar tissue, fantastic for headaches and migraines, reducing cellulites, balancing the nervous system, provides vitality metabolism and detox, opens chest and lungs helping asthma sufferers and is even gentle enough for clients with fibromyalgia.

FAQ

What should I wear? 

The massage techniques include the use of oils or a wax, so I would recommend that you undress to your underwear for the treatment or simply to a level you are comfortable with. Please be aware it is not advised to wear new and special clothing or underwear as this may get wax or oil on it which may not come out in washing. You could have shorts for a lower limb problem if you are more comfortable.

During massage treatment you will be asked to undress to underwear and covered in a large bath sheet. The areas being treated will then be exposed, whilst covering the rest of the body. On arrival, I will prepare the bed, music (of your choice) and oils/wax, then I will step outside so you can get undressed in privacy. At the end of the treatment, I will leave the room to allow you to get up at your own pace and get dressed.

Please note, it is required that underwear is worn throughout all treatments.
