All the cells of the body need a good supply of blood which contains all the ingredients for their growth, repair and nutrition. The cells also need to eliminate the waste materials that arise from the production of energy and debris from any tissue damage or inflamation.
The techniques of massage stimulate the circulation of blood and so increase both the supply and removal of the substances that are needed to promote repair and health at a cellular level.
Damaged, injured, tired and sore muscle fibre is soothed and restored by massage and thus muscle damage is repaired, levels of pain are reduced and mobilitly is improved.
Each session begins with a consultation where you can ask any questions about how we will work together. We will discuss your treatment needs and identify what we want to achieve.
You change in privacy, to shorts or underwear, and get settled on the massage table before we begin your treatment. When I have completed the massage, I will leave you to dress at your own pace.
Afterwards we will discuss any exercises, stretches or postural changes that may help to continue your healing process.
