What is Therapeutic Massage?
Therapeutic massage is a dynamic and whole body massage, focusing on specific areas based on the client's needs whilst creating a sense of nurturing, relaxation and rest.
Massage is one of the most scientifically tested and researched of all the complementary and natural health therapies. It is a powerful and ancient natural treatment which leads to a deep sense of well being and peace.

What to Expect during a Therapeutic Massage and Pregnancy Massage Treatment
I begin with a consultation, discussing the purpose of the client's visit and their medical history, the depth of massage and the desired outcome.
The massage begins with the client lying face down on supportive pillows, ensuring comfort throughout the treatment. For pregnancy massage, the pillows are arranged to support you while you lie on your side, ensuring comfort throughout the treatment. Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils are applied to enhance the release of muscular tension.
The massage technique uses body weight to compress and expand the client's muscles, delivering powerful yet gentle depth and coverage. I also use my hands to massage areas that require more attention, targeting release points and fascial tissue. The treatment leaves the client feeling peaceful, nurtured and relaxed.
Based on the results of initial sessions, I will recommend a program to achieve your desired outcomes.
