I offer sessions of deep tissue, remedial, relaxation and pregnancy massage, to help ease aches, work with chronic pain and provide a space to rest and repair. I specialise in treating Sciatica, Piriformis Syndrome, chronic stress and anxiety, and also teach massage to couples, small groups and qualified therapists.
My approach to sessions
The way I work is friendly and open - I work with you to discover what will benefit you the most on that day.
Before we start the session, I'll carry out an initial consultation. Its helpful for me to get an overall picture of your physical, emotional and mental health so I can offer you the most appropriate treatment. The questions are general and wide-ranging and of course you only share what you feel comfortable with.
During the session of holistic massage in Stoke Bishop I will check in with you as we go along about pressure, how you are feeling, if the treatment needs to be adjusted for any reason and I also invite you to offer any feedback you feel to. I will leave you in your own space for a few minutes at the end of the session so there is no hurry to get up before you are ready. I'll then have a chat with you about your experience, answer any questions you have and suggest some aftercare you can try at home. For example stretches or breathing exercises.
This is an informal space. I am offering my skills and suggestions but it is your process, so please ask any questions or offer any feedback you need to. It is my joy to work with people on an ongoing basis in Stoke Bishop. Holistic massage is all about developing positive, therapeutic relationships with clients to help you take your next step.
