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 treatments will I need?
I recommend if there are no issues or for maintenance, treatments can be whenever you want them, but for best outcomes 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 should I do to prolong the benefits of treatment?
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 should I wear to my treatment?
I always recommend that clients wear comfortable clothes to their appointments. Do not wear anything that is particularly nice as there is a small risk that oil may get on your clothes. While this is rare, it can happen so it’s best to wear something that you aren’t too fussed about.
Additionally, for the ladies it is easier if you wear a bra that can be undone from the back, so that you can get on the treatment table without needing to remove it first.
What type of massage should I have?
This will depend on what you need. 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.
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.
