How may massage help your tired, tense and knotty aching muscles?
When you are stressed
You may get headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain and more. Try a massage to help reduce that stress or pain hormones and receptors and it helps you to sleep, feel calmer and generally helps your wellbeing.
What happens in a massage session?
As with all treatments we begin with a questionnaire about your current health, what you’d like to achieve from the session/s. It is important for you to be able to ask me questions and for you to feel comfortable!
You can be clothed or just wear underwear. My comfortable couch is fully adjustable to suit you. In the colder months warm blankets and a warm room welcomes you.
Depending on what your issue is I will do a full body assessment and treatment. Your treatment is for you. I care how this is going to help you.
I can also combine myofascial release work so the muscles can stretch and unwind gently.
Relaxing breath work to aid muscle relaxation is or can be included, which, in turn allows your mind to relax
Ask yourself how much you want to remain locked down in discomfort. Be honest with yourself.
Myofascial release is similar to massage but it works more on the connective tissue that surrounds the muscles. We have connective tissue running throughout out body.
