Treatments and FAQ
My treatments are hands on offering Sports Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and Massage Therapy, alongside advanced soft tissue methods including Neuromuscular Techniques (NMT), Muscle Energy Techniques (MET), Soft Tissue Release (STR), Positional Release Techniques (PRT) and Myofascial Techniques.
Part of the treatment process is to provide on-going advice on how to improve and recover, including remedial exercises and stretching techniques.
Each person's treatment needs and goals are different. The Initial 60 minute appointment will involve a discussion of the problem that requires treatment so that a treatment plan based on your individual requirements, goals and expected outcomes can be put together to suit you.
Follow up appointments for 60 or 40 minutes will then continue with the treatment plan but can be adjusted as and when needed.
Children under 16 may receive a 30 minute treatment.
What should I expect at the treatment?
At the initial appointment you will be asked a couple of questions regarding your medical history to ensure there are no underlying reasons that treatment should not go ahead on the day. We will discuss the problem that needs treating and your goals and expectations from the treatment and from there we will then agree a treatment plan together that will suit you.
Treatments will take place on a massage couch, which can be height adjusted so that all clients are able to comfortably sit or lie on the couch.
What should I wear?
During your treatment you will want to feel comfortable and relaxed. At all times you will be covered by a towel but you may wish to wear light loose clothing for your treatment. If you prefer to remain fully clothed for a treatment then this is not a problem, as most techniques and massage can be effectively carried out through clothing.
I have a chronic condition, can you treat me?
Absolutely. Chronic conditions including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Asthma & Bronchitis and Arthritis are just some conditions that will benefit greatly from Soft Tissue Therapy. If you have a chronic condition and are unsure on the treatment then please just call me to discuss.
