~Massage Therapies~

Where other Practitioners have failed you, I will succeed

  • Neck and shoulder pain and restrictive movement
  • Frozen shoulder, tennis elbow and carpal tunnel
  • Low back pain
  • Sciatica and hip pain
  • Knee and ankle issues which interfere with walking or exercising
  • Recovery after an operation or injury
  • Arthritis and Fibromyalgia (although these get better results with My Ayurveda Medicine)

I look at your posture, flexibility, medical history, hydration levels and lifestyle.  These can all have a profound effect on muscle and nerve pain and very often, the pain felt is NOT the source. 

 

Aromatherapy Oils are used in ALL my massage treatments at no extra charge. 

My diploma in aromatherapy is an added benefit to you as I will pre-mix essential oils that work effectively on the muscles, skin, and internal organs. When mixing oils for you, I will also take into account your age and lifestyle, skin condition, allergies, and sensitivity.-the aromatherapy oils I use are from a reputable supplier and NOT tested on animals.

Therapies Available-1 hour and 1 hour 90 minute options

Treat the cause and not just the symptoms

People underestimate the issues which come from another parts of the body.  For example, I see people with knee pain and it is coming from their hips and lower back.  Or it could be creeping up from your ankles if your skeleton is out of balance.

I see an increase in clients with sciatica issues.  Have a look at this article I wrote on the subject.

 

Ask yourself if the pain is constant or ongoing?
Does it hurt to stand up from sitting or lying? 
Does it hurt to exert myself?

Does it affect me when the weather changes?

So many *factors* can come into this but I am experienced enough to work out if it is muscle, ligament or tendon.

 

Another *cause* of chronic, ongoing pain may be due to what we call in the Ayurveda world as “A Vata Imbalance”. When a person with the characteristics of vata are imbalanced, we usually see PAIN as well as other physical/bodily issues like constipation, hypertension, weakness, arthritis, restlessness and other stomach or digestion related problems. If you want to get to the real cuase of your issues then chat to me about coaching you in NLP and Ayurveda to relieve you of this.

Here are just a few of my client reviews:

Having been all over the world and stayed at many hotels with spa centres I can say Chris is one of the most skilled massage therapists I have ever experienced. She is very helpful with relieving chronic aches and accident symptoms and creates a wonderfully relaxing experience. I thoroughly recommend her-John G

I am a bit of a sceptic where alternative therapies are concerned but Christine has been incredible in helping me with my recovery. When we started a year ago (after a major Ankle operation), I would painfully limp into Christine’s treatment room. Her ability to get to the source of an injury and manipulate muscles and ligaments is quite unbelievable. Shon S

Quite simply the best massage treatments I’ve ever had! Chris is a very professional therapist who always goes the extra mile. She pays great attention to detail in preparing the environment, from the comfy table to the thick layers of towels, and the ready mixed, organic essential oils, that I know I can walk into the room and leave the world behind and walk out with a good result

While on holiday for two weeks I found myself in the unfortunate position of having a flair up of my Fibromyalgia. My head and was so bad I was struggling with the light. At the appointment Christine asked me lots of questions about my condition and general wellbeing, I found her to be very knowledgeable in her field. I can’t begin to describe the relief I got from my 2 sessions. She worked on certain trigger points and the relief and advice that I got was excellent with very good after-care advice. I can’t thank you enough for all your help and support…. June from Scotland

Christine’s massages are exceptionally intuitive and tailored to my changing needs at every session. She always applies just the right amount of pressure to release my deep tensions & correct my posture, the effects of which I continue to experience for days and even weeks afterwards. I wholeheartedly recommend…. Sam P
