When you arrive for your appointment, we’ll have a conversation regarding your health situation and reasons for coming. Then, I’ll carry out an assessment for due diligence. Time well spent to ensure you receive the right treatment every time.


Remedial Massage: A system of manipulation of the soft tissues of the body to heal injuries and headaches and relieve pain.

Deep Tissue Massage: Is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscles to relax, soothe and improve movement.

Swedish Massage: A relaxing system of treatment using oil to relax the body. It involves the use of kneading, stroking, friction, tapping, and vibration and may provide relief from stiffness, numbness, pain, constipation, and other health problems. The main purpose though is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Other possible benefits include stimulation of circulation, increase in muscle tone, and a balance of the musculo-skeletal systems. It shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes.

Myofascial Release: A safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.

Acupressure: Is a traditional treatment from China using trigger point therapy to work on the body’s meridians to recharge energy levels and release tension.

Sports Massage: Is a specific technique to prevent injuries and assist performance for people involved in sports.

PNF Work: While it is true that PNF focuses on stretching and functional movement, it is also much more. PNF techniques help develop muscular strength and endurance, joint stability, mobility, neuromuscular control and coordination–all of which are aimed at improving the overall functional ability of patients.

Nerve Mobilization: It’s a way of thinking about the body that uses the nervous system as a frame of reference. This is often helpful whenever one is experiencing tingling, numbness and other “nervey” sensations. The length, elasticity and irritability of the nerves and spinal cord are used to guide treatment. Neural tension tests are used to physically assess nerves. Conventional tests like the straight leg raise are also often used to identify when a nerve is irritated.

Couples Massage: It’s a special way to reconnect, relax, revive and learn with someone you care for. It’s a perfect way to learn, practise and enjoy the gift of massage from a qualified therapist who can answer any questions you have. What’s safe and what’s not. What’s too much and what’s just right. Yes, you’ll learn some theory but have lots of time to practise on each other with guidance from an experienced therapist. It’s an experience that can be shared by husband & wife, life partners, mother & daughter, and boyfriend & girlfriend. It may be daunting at first but the occasion will only draw you closer together.
