If you just need a little TLC, are a runner or are in need of a more specialised type of help, either because you're postnatal and suffering with a Diastasis Recti or have had a c-section, I have worked with this population since 2009. I discovered by chance that my fitness clients recovery rates were far superior when combined with soft tissue therapy

If you've had a hysterectomy, c-section or lumpectomy/mastectomy or any abdominal surgery and are feeling out of sorts, do get in touch, as scar massage therapy or Manual Lymphatic Drainage can do a world of wonders to help reduce pain, improve mobility and range of movement and help you start feeling more 'connected' and in touch with your body again

I don't just focus on massage, I'll assess your posture, breathing, core function and can also guide you through your rehab; whether post c-section, hysterectomy, mastectomy or diastasis recti rehab. I will look at your body as a whole rather than just the problem area. Then together, we'll discuss a plan of action to empower you to help yourself, on whichever journey you happen to be on...

Your plan of action wouldn't be complete if we didn't talk about how you can help improve your healing with good nutrition, movement and self-massage!

Massage therapy is a practice that an increasing number of people are turning to as a safe and natural way to balance anxiety and stress, while also helping to maintain various aspects of their physical health. Not only will it relax your muscles and make you feel amazing, it also comes with multiple health benefits…

Do contact me if you want to create a SPA or Pamper party in your own home for yourself or to share with family and friends (minimum 2 hours)

I'll bring my massage table and products and treat you to a few hours of relaxing massages & facials.

If you manage a team, I can create your Wellness Day for you. I can organise your venue, your catering and provide facials and massage for your attendees. Email me for a quote or to book at

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. 

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
