FAQs

What can I expect from a treatment?

We start with a discussion about what’s happening in your body; the kind of symptoms you are experiencing and what might have caused or contributed to any pain or discomfort you are feeling.  This gives me a chance to find out a bit more about you and what kind of massage is going to suit you best. A treatment plan for the session is designed and agreed with you.

How long does a treatment take?

Generally clients book in for an hour slot, however check out my prices page for details of treatments on offer.

What kinds of conditions can massage help with?

Massage can assist with all kinds of conditions; injury repair, postural discomfort, tired and aching muscles and stress related conditions like tension headaches and IBS. Massage can switch on the para sympathetic nervous system which restores homeostasis within the body and allows the fight or flight stress response to turn off. For a lot of us, living with chronic stress or chronic pain has become the norm, massage can be a way of reminding us how good we can feel when we’re relaxed.

How can massage help me?

  • Physically, by repairing damaged tissue, relaxing stiff and aching muscles, improving circulation, nervous function and joint mobility
  • It can help with stress and allow for healing between the mind and body.
  • Emotionally it can provide the comfort of non invasive touch.

What should I wear for a postural assessment and the treatment?

Postural assessment usually involves a client dressed in their underwear or in shorts and a vest if that is more comfortable.
During the treatment clients may wish to undress to their briefs or wear shorts or light joggers. Female clients may also opt to take their bra off or wear a light vest with thin straps.
I work with drapes so areas of the body I’m not working with will be covered.

When can I come for massage?

I offer daytime and weekend (Saturday and Sunday mornings) appointments. I can also negotiate appointments outside of these times.
