What to expect
I integrate Japanese massage techniques with Sport, Deep Tissue and Remedial massage therapy. A treatment with me will incorporate a mixture of deep tissue massage, Soft Tissue Release for stubborn areas, Muscle Energy Techniques to help elongate shortened tissues, trigger point to alleviate pain and enhance functionality around a joint alongside mobilisation. I have also trained in RockTape kinesio-taping, which is used by athletes the world over to help reduce swelling and pain as well as encourage the body to normalise dysfunctional movement patterns and posture. I will focus on your area of concern but do expect my treatment to reach other areas which may be causing or contributing to the problem even from a distant place.
At a young age I started studying a traditional Japanese martial art which developed my interest in movement and alignment of the body. In turn this led me to study Anma – the precursor to Shiatsu – many years ago. Despite a lengthy background in the Hospitality Industry, I decided to pursue my passion and studied Sport and Remedial Massage in order to expand my skill set and take on the new challenge in life focusing as a manual therapist.
