Ruth is a highly experienced shiatsu practitioner and sports massage therapist, with 13 years clinical experience.
Treatments are tailor made to the individual and Ruth may suggest stretches or exercises for you to do at home to help maintain the improvements gained from the session.
Areas of speciality include:
- stress related issues
- postural imbalances (especially desk job related)
- shoulder / back pain
- muscular pain
Stress, muscular tension and pain use up a lot of energy. A shiatsu or sports massage can reduce these, leaving you with more energy to do the things you want to do.
Ruth recently trained in and is excited to be able to offer Manual Lymphatic Drainage massage.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is an extremely gentle therapy that improves the efficiency of the lymphatic system - the body's waste disposal system. By using specific and gentle movements on the skin, MLD can increase the speed of removal of toxins, waste products and excess fluid from the body's tissues.
The deeply relaxing effects of MLD masks the power of the treatment!
MLD has a range of benefits:
- reduces swelling, pain and bruising after injury eg. sprained ankle
- reduces swelling, pain and bruising after surgery eg. knee/ hip replacement. Recommended for post cosmetic surgery
- reduces puffiness around eyes / face
- relieves swollen joints (including swollen ankles during pregnancy)
- intensely relaxing
