As a skilled massage therapist specializing in a combination of sports massage, Swedish massage, and Lomi Lomi massage, my service offers a multitude of benefits for my clients. Sports massage techniques focus on relieving muscle tension, reducing pain, and improving flexibility, making it ideal for athletes and active individuals seeking enhanced performance and injury prevention. Swedish massage promotes relaxation, stress reduction, and overall well-being by targeting the superficial muscles and utilizing long, flowing strokes. Lastly, Lomi Lomi massage, originating from Hawaii, incorporates rhythmic motions and deep pressure, fostering a sense of harmony, emotional balance, and deep healing. By integrating these three modalities, I am able to provide a comprehensive massage experience that addresses physical discomfort, supports relaxation, and rejuvenates both body and mind.

In addition to my diverse range of massage techniques, my approach as a therapist sets me apart. I firmly believe in the power of customization and personalisation. Instead of following a cookie-cutter routine, I take the time to listen attentively to my clients, understanding their unique needs and concerns. By actively engaging with them and paying close attention to their verbal and non-verbal cues, I am able to identify areas of need and focus on specific tight spots and knots that require attention. This personalized approach ensures that each massage session is tailored to the individual, maximizing its therapeutic benefits. Whether the client is seeking deep tissue work for targeted muscle relief or a more gentle touch for relaxation, I adapt my techniques accordingly, making the massage experience as therapeutic or as relaxing as possible. Ultimately, my goal is to provide a customised and deeply beneficial massage that addresses both the physical and emotional well-being of my clients.

Massage was first used in the first Olympics Games by the Greeks and the Romans. The Greeks has a saying “Massage can never be fully appreciated by the common man” The common man to whom they referred to was not judged by wealth or social class but a man who lacked athletic grace.

Regular sports massage therapy can help avoid overuse injuries and traumas. Massage should play an essential part in any athletes or recreational sports persons training program. Through massage we can help remove the build-up of general aches and pains that most sports persons seem to accept.

A muscle spasm is nothing more than a contraction that has failed to release. Muscles normally spasm to protect other damaged tissue, the more damage the more spasm and the more joint restriction.

Breaking down scar tissue is important as scar tissue can build up in soft tissue such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments and may be present due to past injuries and repeated micro-trauma. This build up could conceivably lead to tension and inflexibility. Deep tissue massage will help return normal tissue tension by breaking down scar tissue and adhesions.

Sports massage induces a relaxation and works perfectly alongside the biomechanics screening and re-aligning process. The two can work hand in hand to speed up the process towards becoming pain free, with increased power speed and the ability to move more freely.
