How often should I get a massage?
This depends on a number of factors including the issue you have, your budget and lifestyle/schedule. I will recommend initially having the first treatments closer together and then later spreading them out.
How many massages will I need?
I reccomend if there are no issues or for maintenance, treatments should be every 4-6 weeks. If you have an issue that needs work on, it will depend how often you have treatments and how the issue responds to treatment.
What can I do after my massage?
I will provide stretches and exercises for you to do at home to help between treatments. I also do kinesiology taping which is included in the cost of your massage treatment, and this can provide an extra level of support between treatments.
What type of massage should I have?
This will depend on your needs. I offer a variety of treatments so you can always pop me a message and we can discuss what will work best. All of my treatments are charged based on time not type, so if you want an hour treatment it will be the same price whether you have a sports massage or a hot stone massage.
Can I use multiple discounts?
Unfortunately not! As nice as that would be I am very generous with my discounts so I only allow one to be used per treatment. I will always give you the largest discount you are eligible for.
Will a sports massage be painful?
I have spent a lot of time training in techniques that reach deep into the muscle without being as painful as traditional techniques. A sports massage can be uncomfortable at times, but the pain should always be a good one, not one that makes you feel broken. My aim is always to work with how you feel, and lighter treatments can still be just as effective as deeper ones.
What happens in my first treatment?
I will carry out a consultation to get an idea of your aims from treatment, the areas you have issues (if any), as well as capture lifestyle and medical information. If you are having a sports massage I will in most cases carry out a postural assessment to determine where the potential sources of restriction are coming from. The postural assessment is quick and takes less than 10 minutes.
