What can I expect on my first session?
We will start with a full consultation, including your personal details, lifestyle, any allergies and you’re your general health. This way we can work together to help determine the cause of any muscular dysfunctions you may have and treat accordingly. This will take approximately 15 minutes.
What’s the difference between a sports massage and a remedial massage?
I’m not sure if I need a remedial or a sports massage
Our consultation and assessment will be able to determine the treatment required. Whether it be maintenance treatment to fit in with your training regime or if you have chronic back pain, I will tailor the session to meet your needs and reach your goals. Both treatments are priced at the same rate so you may have a bit of both within your session!
What do I wear?
You will always be covered by towels or sheets, with only the body part being worked on exposed, so sensible and comfortable underwear is ideal. If you prefer to wear shorts/sports clothing then ensure they are loose fitting. Female clients, if you are having back treatment please refrain from wearing a sports bra. A regular bra with a strap allows better access to the entire back for a more complete massage.
How will I feel after?
Depending on the treatment and the individual – anything from relaxed, refreshed, tired, or energised! Some treatments can be very deep in order reach certain muscles that you may never had treatment on. Because of this you may feel a little sore the next day or two, but rest assured you will feel the benefit in the long run. It is advisable to rehydrate with plenty of water after your session and avoid drinking alcohol 24 hours prior to the session.
