  • groin strains
  • twisted ankles
  • carpel tunnel symdrome
  • upper and lower cross syndrome
  • knee pain

Visceral Manipulation (VM)

Visceral Manipulation is a gentle myofascial manual therapy that relates to the internal organs of the body and aids your body's ability to release restrictions.

VM uses the rhythmic motions of the visceral system to evaluate how abnormal forces interplay with the structural integrity of the entire body and to re-establish the body's ability to adapt and restore itself to health.

Common problems that can be helped are:

  • muscular stiffness and tension in the lower back, neck and shoulders
  • whiplash and headaches
  • breathing disorders
  • abdominal/digestive dysfunction
  • postural problems

Neural Manipulation (NM)

Neural Manipulation (NM) is a branch of VM that was developed by French Osteopaths, Jean-Pierre Barral and Alain Croibier. NM is a gentle hands-on therapy that creates movement and freedom within the nervous system resolving global patterns.

Common problems that can be helped are:

  • chronic body ache patterns
  • scoliosis
  • facial and jaw ache
  • whiplash and headaches
  • nerve pain such as sciatica
  • Morton's Neuroma

Traditional Thai Yoga Massage

Traditional Thai Yoga Massage is a wonderful, relaxing treatment combining acupressure on ten Sen lines over the body, yoga style stretches and breathing work.

The treatment helps to loosen tight muscles, relax the mind and balance emotional tensions. It is a 1½-2 hour treatment applied over loose clothing and on a soft mat on the floor. We start off on the feet and finish on the top of your head.

What a great gift voucher idea!

Relaxing Massage

Long hours, inactivity and travelling can drain your body and mind.

All the therapies I practice can improve your well being, but for a pamper session try Swedish deep tissue massage with blended aromatherapy oils. I use premixed aromatherapy oils which can calm, energise and uplift you through their various properties.

Eat something light before a treatment, drink a glass of water after a treatment and rest for at least a half hour for best results.

Common problems that can be helped are:

  • stress
  • tired mind, body or soul!

Pregnancy and Mothers

Please note: Always consult your doctor before having massage.

It's a special time and with so many changes taking place in your body and your emotions, taking care of yourself should be the number one thing to do on your list.

In case you are wondering, during pregnancy treatments are carried out with you sitting or lying on your side!

I aim to help take care of you through each trimester to prepare your body and to support all the changes to body shape and weight. Hormonal changes mean loose and supple ligaments so we also include basic pelvic care and stability work.
