Holistic or Deep Tissue Massage
A manual massage, using Swedish, Eastern, deep tissue or other techniques, as appropriate. A general and medical history is taken to determine whether there are any contra-indications that would limit a massage treatment and to help determine the best treatment for you. Suggestions for exercise and diet will be given. Oil or lotion will be used.
Typically, a whole-body massage lasts about an hour. Shorter sessions can deal with specific areas. During the treatment, you will be lying on a massage couch, covered everywhere except where treatment is being applied – for warmth and modesty. Music and room aromas are available, if you would like them, to enhance your experience.
Each treatment is personalised.
Massage in or after Pregnancy
After the first trimester, massage can go some way towards helping with the stress on your body associated with the changes that occur in pregnancy. With comfortable positioning, care in draping and an informed discussion about your experience, I can provide an individualised massage to suit you.
Chair Massage – A great option for groups, too –
A short session performed while you are seated, fully clothed. This is a blend of Western and Eastern (acupressure) techniques aimed at relaxation and tension reduction, concentrating on the back, neck, arms and shoulders. On-site visits may be arranged – for offices, parties and groups such as NCT gatherings.

I have undertaken additional training in pregnancy massage, seated acupressure and sports massage, myofascial and other techniques.
I can provide a relaxing or invigorating therapeutic massage tailored to your preferences and needs in the pleasant domestic setting of my home – or, if you wish, I can visit you at your place of work or your home.
