Advanced Clinical and Sports Massage
This is a massage combining a variety of different techniques to work with the body to eliminate pain and re-establish normal healthy movement. Using Postural and orthopaedic assessment within a consultation allows me to identify the problem and treat appropriately.
Treatment is about prevention as much as rehabilitation. Whether you are suffering from an injury or not, these massage techniques can make a real difference to everyday life. Each technique used has its own level of effectiveness in helping to breakdown excessively tight tissue and prevent the build-up of scar tissue, increase the range of movement and subsequently relive pain. I use techniques such as Trigger point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Soft Tissue Release, Deep Tissue work and stretching.
My aim is to minimise your pain and maximise your pain free time between sessions, to move you onto a ‘maintenance’ programme so I also advise on stretches and exercises to do in between sessions to help supplement the work I do, and help speed up the recovery.
I currently work with clients with a variety of different conditions, either in pain or aiming to prevent reoccurrence. I also specialise in Pregnancy and Postnatal massage, recently undertaking some specific specialist research into PGP for a 10,000 word dissertation, so I have studied this area extensively both through research and through treating clients.
I am a member of the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council and The Federation of Holistic Therapists, through whom I am fully insured.
I am very passionate about what I do, and constantly strive to be at the top of my profession, through attending courses, conferences and workshops relevant to my work.
