Hello and thank you for taking the time to read through this information.
Massage Therapy is suitable for everybody. Even if you’ve never had massage before or can’t lay down or get anxious about being in a treatment room, each treatment session is tailored to your needs on that day and we’ll work together to do everything we can to keep you comfortable throughout. Gentle touch techniques are suitable for even the most sensitive clients and we only work on areas you are comfortable with – my clients often noticeably relax even with an arm massage.
It’s possible to release physical and emotional tension during your massage therapy treatment. This can help to reduce pain and anxiety and increase your capacity for resilience to deal with those more stressful situations that you encounter with medical interventions such as scans, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgeries.
Massage therapy can also settle the body and mind, to release soft tissues that help you to breathe more easily and ease out tension to help you rest.
Reconnecting body and mind through Massage Therapy can help you tune into and attend to what you can influence or control and help you manage your wellbeing throughout your medical treatments. This is also of great benefit after medical intervention ceases and helps you transition from managed patient to independence as body and mind are often working at different speeds and with different capacity than before treatment.
During massage therapy we can also settle uneven scars, reduce discolouration and height of raised areas and release restrictions to help restore range of movement.
Do get in touch if you’d like to know more or to book an appointment.
Best wishes, Gwen
