“I’m a fully qualified, professional Clinical Massage Therapist. I am a member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage (ISRM), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), and the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM).
I treat muscles, tendons, ligaments, and the connective tissue that binds these all together. Treatment may be to address a specific pain or injury; an area of tightness or inflexibility; or a more structural issue of constriction or misalignment. It may also be in preparation for an event or performance, for example to ensure that muscles are all working smoothly; or after such an event, quickly to flush out waste products and relax stressed muscles, for rapid recovery.
Through an understanding of the daily reality of trying to train and perform with pain or injury, I can support you with a realistic rehabilitation programme to return you to performing at your best.
I believe in continuity of professional healthcare. So we will not just give you a massage and send you on your way “hoping it worked”. First we will look at the cause of any muscular or structural imbalance, and afterwards we will develop a potential rehabilitation programme that may involve exercises, stretching, or just subtly different ways of moving. I will support you with any rehabilitation work in between sessions. And where massage alone is not enough, we will discuss other treatments you might usefully explore.”
