clinical massage

massage therapyIn April 2017 I successfully completed my Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy certificate with Jing and now offer clinical massage for the treatment of chronic pain. I am also certified to offer pregnancy and post-natal massage and work with post-operative scar tissue.

I absolutely love this work.

 

Being trusted with your body is an incredible privilege and one which I do not take lightly. I aim to work with kindness and the utmost respect at all times, working with you to move you away from pain. As a sometimes-reluctant massage client myself I am very aware of the courage it can take to ‘give yourself’ to a therapist and I strive to ensure that you always feel that you are in safe hands during your treatment.

Clinical massage offers you:

  • reduced pain – ideal for relieving low back pain, neck & shoulder tension, hip and leg pain, carpal tunnel and foot & ankle pain
  • improved sleep duration & quality
  • improved mobility
  • a feeling of deep relaxation
  • stress-reduction
  • a sense of wellness & connection
  • emotional support – the feeling of being ‘held’

Each massage follows a holistic path, covering the whole body, but with specific focus on any areas of concern. I use a fusion of different massage styles combined with fascial release techniques, trigger point work and gentle stretching.

I have created a massage therapy room in my home to offer you a calm and peaceful space where you can hang up your life for an hour while I work with you to reduce your pain. I am based in Cranbrook.

Who will benefit from a clinical massage treatment?

In an increasingly technological world we can sometimes feel disconnected from ourselves and the people around us. The power of touch is truly magical and massage is a perfect way to re-connect to ourselves and enhance feelings of self-esteem.

Massage is ideal for everyone including:

  • people with chronic pain or postural issues
  • those who regularly take part in sport or exercise (cyclists, runners, swimmers, fitness enthusiasts, active teenagers, etc)
  • anyone coping with chronic stress, sleep problems or fatigue
  • busy people (office workers, busy mums, frequent drivers, etc)
  • women who are pregnant or post-natal

What are clients saying about their massage treatments with me?

“After my massage yesterday I took the dog for a walk and felt totally invigorated. It was such a beautiful evening and I felt I was walking and moving freely – definitely a ‘good to be alive’ moment.  I feel absolutely exhausted this morning although I slept like a log.  There might be something in this massage thing!’ Mike

‘Thank you for a really great massage today. I feel a million dollars and you have released something in my lower back Richard

“I thoroughly enjoyed my massage on Wednesday. I loved your room with its music, candles and relaxing calming atmosphere. The massage was a good mix of pushing, pulling and massaging with perfect pressure. You came across as confident, knowledgeable and reassuring. I drove home feeling really ‘uplifted’ and happy Kate

“Thank you so much for the wonderful massage this morning. I feel very, very relaxed and my neck/shoulders haven’t felt this good in a long time. I decided to have a ten minute cat-nap earlier and two hours later woke up from an incredibly deep sleep! It was like a fabulous Ayurvedic massage in India.” Leah

“The massage was fantastic. I felt much looser and very calm! Also a few people commented that I was looking slim!” Holly

“I had the best night’s sleep I’ve had for ages after having my massage – 10 and a half hours – which just shows how relaxed I felt afterwards! A niggle with my back was fully resolved thanks to your healing hands. I would definitely recommend this service.” Hilary
