What can I expect from a treatment?
We start with a confidential discussion about what you need; 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 make some suggestions based on your ideas. A treatment plan for the session is always designed and agreed with you.
How long does a treatment take?
I recommend booking an hours appointment for the first one. There are other options available, see the page on Booking Treatments for more info.
What kinds of conditions can massage and reflexology help with?
Massage and reflexology 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 and reflexology 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 or reflexology help me?
- massage can help by repairing damaged tissue, relaxing stiff and aching muscles, improving circulation, nervous function and joint mobility
- hands on therapy can help with stress and allow for healing between the mind and body
- therapy can support you emotionally by providing the comfort of non invasive touch
- reflexology is relaxing and energising and uses reflex points to help the body work more efficiently
What should I wear?
Wear loose comfortable clothes such as joggers/leggings and vest and bring something warm as your temperature can drop after a treatment.
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. For reflexology your socks will need to be removed and comfortable clothes worn. Please bring a clean pair of socks.
I work with drapes so areas of the body I’m not working with will be covered. I have a heated underblanket on the couch so you can feel warm and comfortable.
When can I come for a treatment?
I offer daytime and Saturday morning appointments. I can also negotiate appointments outside of these times.
