While sports massage is my main modality, I will vary the style of massage depending on your needs.
Athletes and weekend warriors
Professional athletes are set apart by their ability to maintain high intensity training year after year. The only way to accomplish this is to recover well and to do it quickly. Sports massage aids the recovery process to keep you performing at your peak.
Postural issues and injury rehab
Modern living, in all of it's comfortable glory, is not doing your body any favours. Sedentary lifestyles will lead to poor posture, which greatly increases your likelihood of injury. You don't want this to hold you back when you finally get a chance to play the sport you love or hit the gym. Remedial massage targets those postural muscles that make feel like your body is tying itself in knots.
Restore calm and quiet
Unrelenting smartphone notifications, business calls, emails and family needs are ever present in daily life. Relaxation massage is a powerful tool to give you some quiet time and reclaim head space. There is promising scientific evidence to suggest relaxation massage can help with anxiety and depression.
Carrying a human around isn't easy
After the first trimester, pregnancy massage is a safe and enjoyable way to assist your body through the huge changes it undergoes to carry a baby. A growing child changes your center of gravity and your ligaments and tissues loosen. This can lead to significant muscle and joint pain. Side lying techniques are used to remain comfortable throughout the treatment.
