The goal of Relaxation or holistic massage (Swedish Massage) is to melt away muscle tension and increase the blood flow to your heart. Swedish Massage is extremely therapeutic as it decreases muscle toxins, increases oxygen levels in the blood, and improves flexibility in the body.
A wonderfully relaxing massage tailored to treat all those problems areas during pregnancy. Paying attention to your lower back & neck and shoulders. Also incorporating some gentle strokes to the legs that can help with swollen legs and feet. For your & your bumps comfort the massage is performed with you lying on your side, supporting your bump as necessary. Please note pregnancy massage can be done from the 2nd trimester onwards.
Deep Tissue Massage reaches deeper layers of muscles. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body. Effectively removing pain and restoring your full range of mobility in a relaxing way.
MLD is a very gentle massage which uses very light circular strokes to add the flow of lymph through the body. (Please see my blog post on MLD for a full explanation and the full benefits of this treatment).
It can be done as a full body 'detox' which will take an hour or focusing on a specific area eg swollen legs, feet and ankles. MLD may also be suggested by a GP or surgeon following surgery. I would be more than happy to see you for this, but would need GP/surgeons consent before treatment.
Depending on the area that is being treated sessions maybe shorted that an hour and will be charged accordingly.
This is a fusion of a variety of massage techniques including deep tissue massage, myofascial release, trigger point massage & accupressure to treat a variety of common pain conditions. eg back pain, neck pain, headaches, RSI's. During a session I work on a specific problem area. Chronic pain has often built up over time and will usually require more than 1 session.

Massage is a tool to help heal. Whether it's stress, illness or simply to pamper yourself, the benefits of massage can be life changing. I would be honored to take that journey with you.
I am now open and taking bookings. As before all precautions will be in place to keep you safe during your treatment. Unless exempt you will need to wear a mask, except when face down on the table. All linens are changed between clients, the table and all equipment cleaned with antibacterial/antiviral cleaner. I change my apron, & mask and clean my visor between clients and the room is aired for 30 mins between clients. I am also taking regular lateral flow tests.
