Helping you relax and get stronger!!
What a typical Massage Session looks like:
A 5 min consultation to find out about your injury and the your medical history.
Then you are on the table for 1 hour. I encourage my clients to communicate with me so that we can figure out where the source of the pain is- often where the pain is manifesting is not the origin. Starting with gentle warming and kneading strokes we gradually work deeper accessing what muscles are compensating for the injury. Using very deep strokes, trigger point and myofascial release to loosen knots in the fascia ( the connective tissue that binds everything together in the body), reducing tension and restoring balance. I use a number scale to gauge the pressure and get feedback from you as we play detective- there is nothing worse than a massage that is not deep enough or else one than is painful!
Post massage I spend about 10 minutes showing you what muscles are affected so you can visualise what is going on and then show you a few stretches or strengthening exercises that are going to help you continue to recover and get stronger.
( Please note that if you would like a comprehensive fully body massage I recommend booking 90min or 2hrs.)
Sports and Deep Tissue Massage improves the removal of metabolic waste, increases general mobility, reduces anxiety, improves blood flow and muscle recovery and tone.
