Why choose me? Because I offer you a complete package.
I combine the experience you get when you go to a spa for a relaxing massage; think those soft towels and quiet music and nice scents, with the therapeutic massage you get if you go to a sports massage therapist. AND I come to your house so you can stay nice and relaxed following your appointment and not have to rush out and drive somewhere. This allows your body to fully integrate the benefits of the massage.
Whenever I have gone to a spa I have felt relaxed in that atmosphere but I have found the massage lacking, like they are just stroking rather than actually working on tense muscles. When I have gone to a sports massage therapist I have found the massage really good and beneficial but it is much more clinical, often cold and bright. I do think that all those bits around it make the experience much more enjoyable and helps you relax even more which in turn enables you to benefit much more from the massage.
I practice Swedish massage which is the best-known type of bodywork performed today. One of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. It is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension. I am not trained in sports massage so if you have a specific sports injury I may not be the right person for you but I do relaxing as well as deeper massages which from experience helps with many different aches and pains even some that has been present for a long time.
Massage therapy can help with:
- reducing pain
- reducing depression and anxiety
- reducing tension within muscles
- increasing energy
- improving movement
- improving circulation
- increasing relaxation
We will discuss your current situation and state of your body in our consultation prior to starting any massage and I will tailor the appointment to your individual needs.
I also specialise in Pregnancy Massage and Postnatal Massage. Please visit their respective pages to find out more what this entails. Maybe my Mothers’ group packages and/or Baby Massage Classes are of interest?
I provide home-visits across Oxfordshire.
You can choose to have either a 30, 60 or 90 minute massage. Please allow an additional 30 minutes for me setting up and packing away.
30 minutes is good for those with limited time. Maybe you are working from home and suffering from tight shoulders, neck or back pain after months of working in what is likely not an optimal position (often at the kitchen table or on the sofa).. This shorter session works well for back, neck and shoulders.
60 minutes is the most common appointment time. This is enough time to give attention to the whole body which I find is often very beneficial. It also allows for more deeper work on specific muscles where there is a lot of tension.
90 minutes is good for those times when you want to really relax and allow your body some rest and time to recharge.
