Appointments

Appointments are available both during the day and evenings in the week to suit your needs and I also offer occasional weekend appointments.

I work from both my clinic at home and from Winchcombe Clinic next to the Library in Back Lane. For those unable to travel I offer mobile appointments in your own home.

When dealing with severe, ongoing and chronic issues I recommend booking a series of holistic massage sessions as this is the best way to achieve long-lasting results. I recommend that new clients see me as often as possible (at least twice a week), which enables your body to hold onto any changes we make – thus promoting speedier, long-term progress.

Your first consultation with me is free.

If appointments are missed, or cancelled with less than 48 hours notice they will be charged for.

What a consultation involves:

• Discuss your medical and emotional history
• Assess your life today
• Discuss how you wish to feel in 3, 6, 9 and 12 months’ time
• Develop a plan to help you achieve your goal
• Discuss the frequency of holistic massage sessions required
• Agree things you can do between sessions to support your body and general well-being

What a holistic massage involves:

• My hands ‘greet’ your body – helping you to feel at ease and comfortable
• We start the relaxation process
• You being to feel safe and secure, calm and cared for
• I carry out a general assessment of your muscular structure
• I gently explore the top layer of your muscles 
• Your feedback is encouraged regarding the depth and strength of massage pressure that you are comfortable with
• I encourage you to totally relax, enabling stress to float away from both your mind and body
• Towards the end of the session I encourage you to return quietly to the here and now 
• You feel refreshed and relaxed
• You give me feedback 

During a series of sessions we will:

• Discuss the effects of your last massage
• Monitor your physical and emotional changes
• Assess the frequency of your sessions

Top tips before your appointments

• Avoid alcohol the night before 
• If possible, have a shower to clear and open your skin’s pores to help the massage oil to be absorbed (avoid using moisturising creams after your shower)
• Arrive early, allowing yourself 10 – 15 minutes for a short walk to quieten and clear your mind and relax 
• If you’re rushing, or late, just stop for a moment and take a few slow deep breaths to help you relax

Top tips after your appointments

• Drink plenty of water
• Take it easy for the next few hours
• Note down any feelings, physical or emotional you may experience to feedback at our next session
• Learn to listen to your body – pain is your body’s way of telling you not to carry on with a certain activity
• Regularly stop what you are doing and take 3 slow, deep breaths
