Remedial and Therapeutic massage

During the initial consultation, we will discuss your individual requirements and the best course of treatment, which can include any of the individual listed treatments, or a mixture.

In some cases, I may require a letter from your GP prior to commencing treatment e.g. post operation or if you are receiving certain types of medical intervention. This will be made clear to you during the consultation.

Some individuals will need only a few sessions to resolve an injury or unknown cause of pain. This is sufficient to uncover any postural imbalances caused by your work/social environment.

Where applicable, this treatment will involve postural corrective exercises, core stability and functional strength training. This will be done in an instructive manner, enabling you to take control of your own pain. I understand how important it is to not rely solely on a hands on treatment to gain pain relief. Not only does it become very costly, but leaves you dependant on the therapist's availability to provide treatment at the time you need it, this way you have the tools and knowledge to help yourself.
