Therapies involving the application of oil to the skin require the client to remove some items of clothing. Careful towel draping techniques are used to ensure client modesty at all times. The therapy room and the couch is heated to allow for relaxation and comfort. Sports Massage involves the manipulation of the body – it is often more comfortable to wear shorts.
Prior to any treatment commencing, a consultation is conducted where you will be required to fill out a form. This is to ensure that the treatment is suitable for you and takes in to account any previous injuries, or current medical conditions. In some circumstances, it may be necessary for me to liaise with your Doctor or Specialist.
What happens after a treatment?
- Your therapist will ask for feedback to ascertain how the treatment went
- Drink plenty of water
- Take it easy
- After aromatherapy, keep out of the sun for 12 hours (especially important if photosensitive oils have been used)
- After aromatherapy, try and avoid bathing for a few hours in order to allow the benefits of the essential oils to continue working
- You may ache for a couple of days after the treatment – make a note of how you feel as this will help your Therapist to plan your next session effectively
- Eat in moderation
- Avoid alcohol and smoking
About your Therapist
I have been massaging for the past 8 years. I am ITEC and IFA qualified and hold a Sports Specific First Aid Certificate. Bodywork is my passion and Sports Massage has revolutionised the way I now work. Everyone’s body tells a story - the areas of muscular tightness and the contrasting areas of lengthened muscle, the stronger muscles, the weaker muscles, posture, the types of demands placed on the body, the way we carry our body, the way we sit down, the way we walk, the way we run…the list is endless. When I start to work on someone’s body, I start to unravel their story. I listen to their story and I feel their story. It is my mission to work with the individual to help them along their way – whether that involves remedial work, relaxation work, respite, or a mixture of all three. I am always pleased to speak with you – give me a ring if you would like to find out more.
Kind regards and wishing you well,
