What will my first session be like?
At the start of your first session we will talk through your medical history. We will also spend some time time exploring what you are hoping for from the massage and anything else you feel it is important to share with me. The massage will be slightly shorter than following sessions.
Do you treat patients with severe health problems?
Yes. Massage can be really helpful in regards to supporting people manage their illness and the associated psychological stress and sadness. It is important that you discuss massage with your medical practitioners to gain their opinion and support. I will ask you to ensure that you have their support before our session.
Do you work with people who have terminal or chronic illness?
Yes. When massage is supported by your medical practitioner. I am a NHS complementary therapist with experience working in oncology and palliative care.
Do you work with people who experienced mental ill health, such as anxiety, depression?
Yes. There is increasing research showing that massage can increase a person's sense of wellbeing. Biodynamic massage is client led. Therefore we can do as much or as little as you like in a session. You choose whether you want to stay clothed, talk or simply be.
