Massage Therapy & Fast Pain Relief
Are these treatments right for me?
Sports/Deep tissue Massage:
You don't have to be an athlete to benefit from these. Far from it!
They can help with pain, restricted mobility/flexibility and all manner of injuries. Then post care advice and exercises will help your road to recovery.
Emmett & Bowen:
These techniques can provide relief from pain & discomfort, either as a stand alone treatment or to compliment a "regular" massage.
What to wear?
Shorts and t-shirt will be appropriate for a sports massage assessment. Females may want to wear a sports bra if they own one.
Comfortable, loose clothing will be fine for an Emmett or Bowen treatment.
Your comfort is of upmost importance to me. Through the use of towel techniques and a professional manner I will make sure you never feel uncomfortable or exposed.
Bowen & Emmett can be performed whilst you are fully clothed.
Will there be any assessments/tests?
This depends on the nature of your appointment. If you have injured yourself in a specific place on your body I will normally perform assessments on the joints above and below that area. They will take about 30 minutes. Any assessments carried out will yield more accurate results, especially when there is a clearer view of the area in question.
A relaxation massage, or general MOT, may not need any prior assessments.
Please be aware: Some conditions/injuries may require consent from your GP before treatment.
How many sessions will I need?
This depends on the nature of your appointment. If it is for a specific injury then sometimes up to 3-4 sessions will be necessary. This will include the assessments within the first meeting. However, if new clients book 3 sessions in advance they can save £10.
If you have booked a relaxation massage then it all depends on just how stressed you are!
For now, I will be offering mobile appointments only.
The maximum appointment length is 60mins. This is to keep the time I am spending in each household to a minimum.
All equipment will be cleaned & disinfected between appointments.
I will take your temperature before beginning a treatment, using a no-touch reader.
Both the therapist and the client will be required to wear a mask throughout the appointment. Please understand that this is a precaution I must take as I will be in close contact with potentially vulnerable clients thoughout the day, and as a result must put their health & safety first.
Where possible, there needs to be a through-draft in the room where the treatment will take place. If this is not feasible, all associated windows and doors will need to be open before and during the treatment. Extra blankets will be provided!
I will ask you some questions over the phone before your appointment to ascertain your current health and that of those around you. If your circumstances change after you have made a booking, and you or someone you are in close contact with, develop Covid symptoms ie a persistent cough, fever, loss of smell, please inform me well in advance so we can take steps to re-arrange your treatment at a more suitable date.
All payments via balance transfer or cheque, please.
Thank you for your understanding.
Do I need to provide anything?
Only enough space to fit a massage couch and therapist in.
Can I eat before a treatment?
What form of payments do you accept?
Balance transfer or cheque.
What if I have to cancel an appointment?
For your own comfort it is best that you don't eat anything substantial at least an hour before the session.
No problem. Just make sure to give at least 24 hours notice otherwise you might be charged for the session.
