Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy uses a variety of hands-on strokes, applying various depths of pressure as appropriate for you, gentle stretches and mobilising techniques to bring about a state of relaxation, both physical and emotional.

It can stimulate the circulation, reduce tension in stiff muscles, improve range of movement through joints and induce the release of feel-good hormones to bring about a state of relaxed well-being.

When combined with a bespoke blend of essential oils in a carrier oil, your massage therapy session can deliver even more results for a whole host of issues! See the Clinical Aromatherapy page for more details.

For any treatment, the first step is to book a full Consultation and Assessment before your first visit. This allows me to get a full picture of your health and wellbeing and the issue(s) you are seeking help with. We can then discuss the best course of action for you.

Bespoke Massage Treatment

There’s no need to decide whether a Sports or a Swedish massage, pregnancy or Scar Work session is more appropriate at the time of booking as I incorporate whatever techniques are most suitable for you, based on your consultation. In short, each session is bespoke to what you need on the day.

All you need to decide is whether to book a 45-minute or 60-minute session. (I am currently unable to offer anything longer in duration due to Covid restrictions).

However, please note that due to equipment or room set-up, Indian Head Massage and Hot Stones Massage must be booked as such.

On The Day

When you attend for your appointment, I will check in to make sure that nothing has changed since our consultation and determine what priorities for treatment you have. You will need to undress any areas requiring attention but you will never be asked to remove underwear or anything you are not comfortable to take off. Your modesty is always protected and areas not being worked on are covered up.

Your comfort is my priority so I try to keep my therapy room at a comfortable temperature and have a heat pad on the massage couch if you feel the cold. The room is well ventilated at all times to avoid it feeling stuffy and in line with Covid/infection control advice.

Feedback Welcome

I will always explain what I have planned for your session so that you feel comfortable and safe. I encourage feedback throughout to know that you are happy with the pressure and techniques I am using, the temperature of the room and so on.

If we are using an essential oil blend, I will always double-check that you enjoy the fragrance before I start using it. You can also rest-assured that whichever massage medium I use, whether a bespoke blend or not, I source the highest quality products. Ethics such as organic, fairly-traded and sustainably sourced ingredients are very important to me and I will never use any product that has been tested on animals.

If you are vegan or have any allergies, intolerances, likes or dislikes this will be discussed during your consultation and considered in the choice of oil(s).
