Starting with gentle warming and kneading strokes we gradually work deeper, pinpointing the muscles that are compensating for the injury. Using very deep strokes, Trigger Point, and Myofascial Release we work to loosen knots in the fascia (the connective tissue that binds everything together in the body), reducing tension and restoring balance. Sometimes I use Structural Integration to iron the muscles back into place when they have migrated or stretched out of alignment. To gauge the right pressure for you I use a number scale and ask for regular feedback – there is nothing worse than a massage that is not deep enough or that is painful!

Therapeutic massage is a gentle but firm massage. It is a form of touch that is specifically developed to assist deep relaxation in body and mind. Focusing on manipulation of the muscles and soft tissue, encouraging movements in the joints, stimulating circulation and eliminatory systems of the body and boosts the immune system. It can be a rewarding and nourishing experience, and can reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, bringing together balance and a sense of well being.
