This is a massage that will address the whole of you, allowing relaxation and recovery on all levels, but which also has the depth of focus to be able to respond to particular conditions.

Each session is tailored to your individual needs and requirements based on an initial consultation and assessment.
Massage is the age-old art of healing through touch. A massage treatment can be an opportunity for all the body to relax, recover and re-balance. Focusing on the muscles and joints, massage affects the circulation, respiratory, digestive, immune and nervous systems… in fact, the whole body.
Regular massage can improve both your general health and your ability to cope with the strains of everyday life. It can keep you literally ‘in touch’ with yourself. There are few conditions that make massage inadvisable, but any doubt can be checked with your doctor and I would certainly advise you of this, if I thought it was necessary.
Massage very rarely conflicts with any medical treatment and more often than not actually supports and speeds recovery.
Therapeutic Massage in particular can be beneficial in cases where there is little other help available, or where there is long-term pain or discomfort.
In your first session there will be time to take a case history, and assess any specific problems.
A full body massage takes about an hour, but the way of working is always tailored to your particular needs, and may focus more on specifics or include elements of Shiatsu, Reflexology, or Cranial work if agreed.
You would be lying warm and comfortable on the treatment couch or in whatever way is best for you.
Home visits can also be arranged for the elderly or house bound.
