My Approach

I use Swedish massage (which is medium or light pressure) as a base treatment and incorporate working more deeply with progressive application (as individually appropriate) in providing you with a Holistic Treatment. Clinical remedial massage, pregnancy massage, sport massage, scar-tissue reduction work and other modalities as required by your health situation.

 

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

 

Please note that I do not offer deep tissue or very deep pressure massage as a full treatment.

Health Consultation

Before your first visit, you will be asked to complete a health consultation form so that understand if there are any issues that may affect your treatment. There may be follow-up questions from that which will either be emailed to you or discussed further when you arrive. If you have a complex health history or would simply prefer to have a conversation rather than fill out a form, a telephone call can be arranged prior to your first visit and takes approx 10-15 minutes (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.
