Are you an active person looking to maintain your fitness and mobility or an office worker wanting the aches and pains from your desk-bound job to melt away?
Sports massage uses a targeted approach to focus on specific areas of your body that need attention. This could be as a result of injury, poor posture, repetitive strain or overuse. I use strong pressure levels to reach deep layers of muscle and connective tissue and techniques such as stretching, compression, friction and trigger point therapy.
Whilst you might come to me with a sports massage in mind, I will take the approach of assessing what is best for your body and include cupping, needling or taping where needed.
This popular holistic massage harnesses the power of plants and massage to transport you to a place of serenity and peace, leaving you to unwind and rejuvenate.
The essentials oil work through absorption and inhalation, creating a luxurious and calming setting whilst deeply nourishing the skin. As you inhale the oils’ aromas your state of relaxation will heighten, triggering soothing emotions and easing tension from your body.
This tranquil experience offers many physical and emotional benefits from reducing muscle tension, relieving aches and pain to significantly reducing stress and balancing hormones.
Pregnancy massage is a soothing and relaxing treatment to support you through all the changes you are going through, both physically and mentally. Designed to relieve muscular tension, aches and pains and be some time to take the weight off during your second and third trimesters.
Working around you, I make sure you are comfortable and fully supported, using plenty of pillows, bolsters and blankets to create a cosy environment. It is entirely up to you which areas are massaged, whether you’d like a full body treatment, or if you’d prefer to just focus on the areas in need. This time is for you to enjoy.
Part of the Hindu health care practice of Ayurveda, Indian head massage focuses on your head, neck and shoulders and was originally used to improve scalp and hair condition. It is a deep massage,
using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage strokes on your scalp, deep tissue work on your shoulders, and stretching the neck.
This is a seated treatment, but don’t think that will detract from your ability to relax. It doesn’t seem sufficient to say that a good Indian head massage will relax you. It’s more than this. It can make you feel detached and serene, leave you sighing and wordless, but also alert and clear-headed, alleviating brain-fog and stress.
Dry needling is a modern and scientifically supported treatment to bring additional benefits to your injury, maintenance or wellbeing treatment.
This powerful therapy treats injury and muscle pain, provides relief for your muscular aches or stiffness and offers improvements to flexibility and range of motion. Fine, stainless steel needles are inserted in or around trigger points to relieve mild to moderate pain by sending instant healing messages to your body.
Cupping is a highly effective treatment to aid your recovery from a range of injuries and muscle imbalances. It also softens tight muscles in preparation for massage.
Vacuum cups are applied to the skin to increase the flow of blood and other nutrients to specific areas. This flushes out waste products and kickstarts the healing process. Muscles warm and soften, tissues hydrate and areas of tension experience welcome relief.
With some minor injuries, the use of kinesiology tape can bring with it a range of benefits when used as part of your sports massage treatment.
The tape’s elasticity supports your injured areas, and the pressure from its application improves blood flow, reduces swelling and alleviates. Keeping the tape secured for as long as possible can also protect the injury by restricting movement in the damaged area.
The yoga I practice and offer is Hatha Yoga. One of the original Eastern schools of yoga, Hatha is accessible to everyone. It focuses on using gentle but challenging poses to teach us how to meditate and still our minds. As a result, you will become more aware of your thoughts and feelings and learn to manage them rather than become overwhelmed by them.
Hatha Yoga will also help you to relax and unwind. It can unfold you from your desk or commute at the end of a busy day and help prepare your body for a good night’s sleep.
I offer classes and 1:1 sessions online and in person at a variety of locations. Alternatively, I can visit you in the comfort of your home. The times and length of sessions are designed to fit with your busy lifestyle. This includes 40-minute lunchtime sessions and 1 hour evening classes.
