Here's what Liz says,

"I would never have thought that hoovering with Mr Henry  would have left me with a damaged arm, shoulder and torn tendon!!.......But unfortunately it did....

(My fault?) due to a not focused mind with the emotional roller coaster of my daughter giving birth and my mother passing away within just 4 days of each other.

Apparently am not the only person to have had an accident with a hoover! 

 

My massage sessions start off with me....

**walking in feeling old

....But walking out feeling young.

**walking in feeling stressed  

and overpowered by my constant pain

....But walking out feeling incontrol of my pain.

** Melissa goes over and above the massage session  by her extra research and advice for other ailing parts (my infamous stiff knee) which has now recovered thanks to support, encouragement and her advice

.....and my knee was not what I was going in to these massage sessions for. 

 

Melissa is a very special and dedicated professional who takes her knowledge and is always continuing her professional development She gives 5 Star treatment. 

A session or even better a 'block of sessions' with Melissa is the most precious and important gift you can give yourself.

Thank you Melissa."

Hello, I'm Melissa, and I'm passionate about helping you on your wellness journey.

 

You have the freedom to choose the combination of techniques that best suits your needs. Whether you're looking for a little TLC, are a dedicated runner, or need specialized support, I'm here to assist you.

 

I've been working with postnatal clients dealing with Diastasis Recti and those recovering from c-sections since 2009. It was during this time that I discovered the remarkable impact of combining soft tissue therapy with fitness, resulting in superior recovery rates.

 

If you've had abdominal surgery, like a hysterectomy, c-section, or mastectomy, and are feeling out of sorts, don't hesitate to reach out. Scar massage therapy and Manual Lymphatic Drainage can work wonders in reducing pain, improving mobility, and helping you reconnect with your body.

 

I go beyond traditional massage by assessing your posture, breathing, and core function. I'll guide you through your rehabilitation journey, whether it's post c-section, hysterectomy, mastectomy, or diastasis recti rehab. We'll address your body as a whole, not just the problem area, and together, we'll create a personalised plan to empower you on your unique path. And remember, your plan of action wouldn't be complete without discussing how good nutrition, movement, and self-massage can improve your healing process.

 

Massage therapy is a natural way to find balance, reduce anxiety and stress, and maintain your physical health. It not only relaxes your muscles and leaves you feeling amazing but also brings multiple health benefits.

 

Additionally, if you're interested in hosting a SPA or Pamper party at home or arranging a Wellness Day for your team, reach out to me at melissagaul.walker@gmail.com, and we'll make it happen. Your wellness journey begins here, and I'm here to support you every step of the way.

BRAZILIAN LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE

Similarly to Manual Lymphatic Drainage, this involves manually moving lymph fluid found between cells and in the tissues, towards the lymph nodes in order to be pumped out of the body.

The difference between the Vodder technique I already offer and Brazilian Lymphatic drainage is, this has been evolved from the Vodder technique and combined it with some of Leduc and Godoy's maneuvers and requires a deeper touch. This claims to deliver more instantaneous and visible results by helping with cellulite appearance and creating that "sculpting" effect.

MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage helps promote the movement of lymphatic fluid out of the swollen area using a gentle touch and specific skin stretch techniques. The light process focuses on clearing the build up of lymphatic fluid and helping it to move and reabsorb back into lymph nodes. This is a particularly beneficial massage for people recovering from surgery or suffering with medical conditions.

 

MLDM can benefit people who are experiencing the following:

  • lymphedema

  • fibromyalgia

  • pre/post surgeries

  • swelling or edema

  • skin disorders

  • fatigue

  • insomnia

  • stress

  • arthritis

  • migraine episodes

  • cellulite

SPORTS MASSAGE

Sports massage is a form of massage that involves the manipulation of soft tissue using deep tissue techniques, with the aim of reducing muscular tension, discomfort and pain. It is often used to assist in correcting imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity. It improves circulation and encourages the removal of toxins such as lactic acid from the body as well as aiding in relaxation. Sports massage, before and after exercise, is thought to help enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent muscle injury.

This type of massage is not restricted to sports participants, as the deep tissue massage techniques can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions, such as:

  • Muscular and joint discomfort such as sprains and strains

  • Postural related pain

  • Headaches

  • Repetitive strain injuries

  • Back pain

SCAR MASSAGE THERAPY

Please wait until your incision has fully healed with no scab or infection

Wait until at least 2 weeks after a surgery or injury. It can be particularly useful within the first 2 years while the scar is still forming and healing...but can also have wonderful benefits to allowing the tissues to move freely in the following years

Scar massage is a physical therapy treatment using oils to help hydrate and smooth the scarred area using rhythmical and relaxing strokes. It helps to promote the circulatory and lymphatic systems around the area to boost healing, nourish the skin and promote regeneration. Scar massage is known to be an effective way to decrease scar tissue build up and help make scars less noticeable.

POSTNATAL MASSAGE 

Postnatal massage is a full body massage that can help women adjust to motherhood by offering both physical and emotional benefits. The physical benefits include pain relief, muscle relaxation, joint relief, and the flushing out of toxins. However, it can also help lessen any stress felt from baby’s arrival, soothe sleeping issues and generally help a new mum to feel calmer and in more control after the life changing experience of birth.

PREGNANCY MASSAGE

Pregnancy Massage is a great way to manage both physical and mental wellbeing, which is especially important during pregnancy. This gentle and soothing massage is tailored to each individual mum to be and its benefits include reducing swelling, improvement of sleep, relieving aches and pains and helping prepare your body for birth.

LOMI LOMI HAWAIIAN MASSAGE

Lomi Lomi massage is a traditional Hawaiian massage that is based on the belief that memories are stored in every cell of the human body, not just the mind. This massage combines unique massage techniques, oils and some elements of meditation with the aim of restoring energy flow whilst gently soothing the body, leaving you with a sense of overall wellbeing.

ONCOLOGY MASSAGE

Is a specialised form of massage therapy tailored to the unique needs of individuals undergoing cancer treatment or in post-treatment recovery. It focuses on gentle techniques that accommodate the physical and emotional complexities of cancer, aiming to alleviate symptoms like pain, fatigue, anxiety, and nausea. This gentle approach helps improve relaxation, sleep, and overall well-being while respecting the individual's medical condition and treatment protocols. By enhancing the body's ability to heal and promoting a sense of comfort, oncology massage provides a supportive and nurturing experience during a challenging time, fostering a more holistic approach to cancer care.

THAI MASSAGE

is sometimes referred to as “assisted yoga”. It incorporates yoga-like stretching movements as the therapist kneads and presses muscles along the body's energy channels with their hands and feet. It can help reduce headaches, decrease lower back and joint pain, increase flexibility, calm stress and anxiety, leaving your body and mind energised.

SWEDISH MASSAGE

Swedish massage is a therapeutic whole-body massage treatment that concentrates on easing soft tissue and muscles to aid in restoring health and to rid the body of toxins. It has a calming effect on the nervous system, as well as aiming to reduce emotional and physical stress. Techniques used are designed to improve circulation, soothe aching muscles and encourage relaxation, leaving you with a sense of overall wellbeing. 

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Deep tissue massage incorporates the use of firm pressure and slow strokes to massage the deep layers of muscle and connective tissue. This sometimes-intense massage aims to work out the knots from stressed, overworked muscles to alleviate immediate pain, as well as chronic joint and general muscle pain. It also promotes faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.

WONDER LIFT FACIAL

Wonder-lift facial with Tropic is a totally natural, non-invasive treatment that is designed to help tighten face muscles and encourage cell renewal whilst stimulating collagen to regenerate your skin and improve blood flow to the face. As a result, it restores suppleness to the skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles using a special sequence of massage techniques. Think of it as yoga for your face!

It incorporates Chinese Acupressure and Facial Reflexology, a blend of Japanese Facial Massage, Indian Face Massage and Acupressure techniques. The Japanese influence works on the facial meridians which will treat the health of your whole body and help the flow of energy in the face.
