Pilates

To compliment massage therapy, I strongly recommend practicing Pilates. The Body Control method is remarkably effective for general wellbeing as well as dealing with injuries and/or back issues and medically approved as such. It can work for everyone, regardless of fitness levels, and delivers Joseph Pilates’ classical exercises in an accessible way.

The matwork exercises I teach need no special equipment and this method is based upon a philosophical foundation from which I have personally benefited dealing with my own back issues and arthritis. If you thought Pilates was boring or just for women, I challenge you to give it a try and think again!

Sports Massage

Sports massage is a no-nonsense approach which deals directly and efficiently with the body’s soft tissues. But to enjoy sports massage, you do not need to be sporty!

Some of the benefits include:

  • Improving joint mobility, muscle tone and posture
  • Relieving stress, tension headaches, insomnia and anxiety
  • Muscle balancing in rehabilitation / pre and post event work
  • Relief from muscular discomfort during pregnancy
  • Help with childhood growing pains

All treatments are designed around your specific needs. You can expect a tailor-made session every time, whether you have an injury to treat or just need to relax.

Baby massage & Postnatal

The benefits of infant massage & yoga are practically endless, but the immediate effects include:

  • alleviates the common symptoms of colic, teething, painful wind and constipation
  • encourages babies to sleep better and for sustained periods
  • can help reduce post natal depression & boosts self confidence in new parents
  • helps stimulate baby’s important health system & functions including co-ordination, respiration, digestion, learning and language development

Postnatal Pilates sessions include some of these techniques to keep babies happy while you exercise either in class or on a 1:1 basis. Private baby massage/baby yoga classes can also be arranged.
