My Approach

I use Swedish massage as a base treatment and incorporate deeper tissue work, clinical remedial massage, pregnancy massage, sport massage, scar-tissue reduction work and other modalities as individually appropriate in providing you with a Holistic Treatment.

 

What this translates to is a flowing massage which focuses on key areas which require more attention, as appropriate.

Health Consultation

Before your first visit, we will conduct a full health and well-being assessment so that I can understand what you are hoping to achieve through your treatment, it allows me to take in to consideration any health issues that may affect your treatment and to answer any questions that you might have. This initial assessment process takes approx 10-15 minutes by phone and is free of charge. 

 

At any subsequent appointments, we will review any health changes since your last appointment when you arrive, before proceeding with treatment.
