What data do you keep and how do you use it?
What’s the difference between massage and myofascial release?
Massage uses a range of flowing, percussive movements, trigger point work – you are always in control of the amount of pressure used. I use different pressures. Treatments can be relaxing or invigorating. Each treatment is tailored to you, the client.
Myofascial Release (MRF) is slow gentle release work that allows the connective tissue to ‘melt’, stretch and unwind. No oil or lotion is needed for this treatment. Each treatment is tailored to you, the client.
Reflexology – does it tickle? I don’t like my feet…..
It does not tickle. I use a firm pressure and walk my thumbs through various points on your feet. Each treatment is tailored to you, the client.
What should I wear during the massage or MFR? Do you leave the room when I’m changing?
Anything that is comfortable for you. Typically clients undress to underwear or shorts – there is no fully unclothed work. I use correct towel procedures, and certainly, as a professional therapist your dignity and privacy are protected.
I leave the room while you get ready for the treatment. There is a toilet adjacent to the room too, for your convenience.
With reflexology you remain fully clothed but generally without socks.
What products do you use?
I use a natural waxy produced by Songbird Naturals for massage and reflexology. I use nothing for MFR as it is not needed.
If a treatment is combined then the MFR section is covered before going on the massage.
