We all need this sometimes particularly to alleviate stress and improve our quality of sleep. The strokes are flowing, aid circulation and cell nutrition but also give a much needed sense of wellbeing. This massage is good for all ages and beneficial for those recovering from illness. This massage also targets the superficial muscles.

Deep Tissue Massage
The massage techniques work with the superficial muscles and those lying deeper. This is the best massage to get rid of knots, restore range of motion, improve circulation and help muscles to function better, particularly helpful to rectify long standing muscular problems. This is very beneficial to many of my clients, even helping with migraines if those are triggered by muscular tension.

Pregnancy Massage
A relaxation form of massage designed to help the mother adapt to the incredible changes experienced during this time. It is performed side lying with multiple supports to give a feeling of weightlessness. This can help the mother to sleep better, allow over stressed muscles and joints to relax and in so doing relax the baby...always a good thing. Every pregnant mother should have massages, without guilt, period!

Sports Massage
This can be very important to the sports enthusiast. Massage can help your performance, keep you in optimal condition and help you recover from injury faster. The stretching included in this massage can be better than you can do for yourself. We can focus on one area alone or address the needs of the whole body.

Trigger Point and Neuromuscular Massage
Long term muscular tension, what ever the cause, can lead to areas within the muscle that accumulate calcium deposits and metabolic wastes. Not only does the muscle not function as efficiently but it can cause pain in the muscle itself or in distant places referred through the nervous system. This massage treatment can clear those areas of waste material, reduce pain and discomfort and make your muscle work more efficiently. This treatment combines well with deep tissue work and relaxation techniques. Pain that you cannot attribute to anything you have done may be caused by trigger points.

Relief from Chronic Sickness
Some of my clients have long term, serious pathologies, such as stroke victims, muscular dystrophy, arthritis, ALS and cancer, to name a few. Whist I cannot fix these problems I can improve their quality of life with massage by reducing some of the symptoms they experience and enhancing wellbeing. I am experienced enough to know what is appropriate massage therapy for these clients and to communicate with other health care professionals if it is necessary. 

Chair Massage
I can bring a massage chair to the place of your choice and give a great back and shoulder massage without the recipient having to remove clothes or have oil applied to the body. Great for multiple clients at office locations, as a reward to staff, or as help to staff who have been working very hard. This can relax and invigorate, improve work productivity as well as address shoulder and back tension. Great for the desk workers out there.
Can also be used for other functions, conferences, workshops, wedding parties and family functions.

Massage For Special Events
You could have massage as part of your special event, for your loved ones or yourself at family functions. Or you could provide massage for a corporate or charity event.
