sports & clinical massage

Hands-on massage treatments are temporarily suspended during the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak.

Whilst I am unable to offer hands-on work right now, I am still here to support you in whatever way I can. Please let me know if you would like to to book an online coaching call for some self-care guidance. Or if you have someone at home with you, I can coach the two of you in some simple massage techniques which may help during this time.

I am also offering online Pilates classes which may benefit your body in terms of supporting you with mobility and strengthening work. Please let me know if you’d like to know more about classes and one-to-one Pilates sessions.

massage therapyI offer sports & clinical massage for the treatment of exercise-related injuries, general soft-tissue niggles & chronic conditions such as low back pain, neck & shoulder tension, knee & hip pain.

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. I strive to ensure that you always feel you are in safe hands during your treatment.

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 get you moving more comfortably again. I am based in Cranbrook.

Who will benefit from a sports & 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
