Aches and pains ?

If you suffer with pain, there are many types of therapy available - massage therapy, chiropractic therapy, osteopathy, physiotherapy, to name a few. Each has a different approach to trying to help the body.
You can also try some self-help, such as gentle stretching, ice immediately after an injury, and heat therapy if there is no inflammation. However, if in doubt always consult your GP.
I offer massage therapy, which is manipulation of the soft tissues - notably muscles, using a combination of techniques including stretching, stroking, pressure, and kneading applied to muscles and other soft tissues. The aim of this is to increase blood flow, remove waste products from the body, realign muscle fibres and break down any knots where the muscle fibres have bunched together.

I try to give clients the massage therapy treatment that they require. I do this by asking feedback as we go through the session, to determine if the client feels what I am doing is effective or not, and where they feel they need the treatment, and where they feel any pain.
I also ask for feedback as we go along, as to how the client is perceiving the pressure that I am applying, and whether they feel that this is adequate for them or not.
I do the above, within the framework of my knowledge which takes into account the discussion we will have before the massage therapy regarding what pain the client is experiencing, what they have been doing which may have contributed to the pain, as well as my knowledge of anatomy, and which muscles etc ... are likely to have been affected by the activity - and which body areas may therefore require massage.

If you require treatment ASAP, I will try to see you within 24 hours - my view is that if someone is in pain, and has taken the time to contact me, then they need to be seen very soon !
