Q: What can I expect during your treatment

A: Treatment will begin with lighter strokes (effleurage) to warm up the soft tissues and help uncover areas of tension. I will then gradually begin to work deeper into the tissue using more pressure (petrissage, frictions, compression) to release tension. Don’t worry, though, I will communicate throughout and adjust intensity  to suit your preference and ensure that you’re comfortable.

Once your treatment is over, I will give you advice on any further treatment or stretches that may help in the interim, as well as ensuring you have plenty of water to drink to flush out those toxins.

Q: How often should I get a massage?

A: The short answer would be as often as you like. The long answer depends on many factors to include the type of massage you are having, your pain and physical needs and indeed your stress and emotional needs.

A massage every week or two would be ideal but not realistic for everyone. Every 4-6 weeks may be more manageable for you. We also have to remember that regular massages are important to help prevent injury, pain and tension build up in the muscle fibres and for de-stressing/relaxing the mind and body. Ideally we want to be investing in positive health rather than just investing in fighting illness. Ideally a regular massage is just the ticket to keep everything flowing nicely and to optimise overall health and well-being.

Q: What should I wear for my treatment session?

A: I recommend comfortable shorts and t-shirt. As I will be doing range of motion testing and it is important you are able to move freely without restriction from clothing. During the massage itself depending on the area of the body being treated, you may be required to remove your t shirt but I will provide towels to maintain modesty, keep you warm and comfortable.
