Sports and remedial massage has many benefits to different systems in the body like muscular, skeletal, nervous, cardiovascular, digestive, lymphatic.
– Releases tension, stiffness, restrictions

I use a wide range of techniques that include STR (soft tissue release), MET (muscle energy techniques), NMT (neuromuscular therapy), kinesio taping.
During pregnancy your body will change especially in the later stages. Those changes generally bring aches, pains and discomfort. Back pain, leg swelling and cramps, migraines and headaches, sciatica; they are all conditions that massage will help relieve the symptoms of.
Giving birth is a strenuous process on your body. Post natal massage helps with relaxation, releasing tension in the muscles, increases blood flow and oxygen to your muscles, lowers stress, speeds up recovery from caesarean birth. Post natal recovery involves more than massage. My intention is to support and nurture the mums, re-educate and refer if necessary.
The strategies used in this education include:
– Soft tissue release
– Post isometric relaxation
– Mini-foam rolling
– Yoga balls
– Simple acupressure
– Breath retraining
– Instrument assisted massage tool (polycarb tool)
– Traditional massage strokes
ScarWork is a very light, gentle, non-invasive treatment. Scar therapy is for all types of scars, from surgeries to accidents.
Scar formation is the natural process of wound healing. Scar tissue contains more fibrous tissue and collagen deposits than the normal skin, making it structurally and functionally different. There may have been nerve damage from the injury or surgery causing numbness or sensitivity in the area.
Scarwork is done primarily to improve finction and functionality in the scar and the surrounding tissues which creates better movement between the layers of the skin, fascia and muscles. Treatments stimulate the circulation, lymphatic and nervous systemto encourage renewed healing and promote tissue health.
WHICH SCARS CAN BE TREATED? All kinds of scras from very old to newly healed can be treated using scarwork: knee/hip replacement, spinal surgery, pinned and plated bones, keyhole scars, childhood injuries, skin grafts, facial scarring, abdominal surgery, appendix removal, caesarean section, gallbladder removal, hysterectomy, breast surgery, achilles tendon surgery, tummy tuck surgery, burns and many more.
