I combine Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, Sports Therapy Craniosacral Therapy and Fascial Unwinding to suit the individual person at each session.  Treatments are not routine and using a combination of all 5 modalities together increases the overall benefit.

  • Postural Assessment, Joint testing and Craniosacral Assessment
  • Treatment using therapies as appropriate
  • Feedback and aftercare advice (stretching, postural care, exercise)

Treatment is both progressive and pertinent to your current state and changing needs.
