What to expect

I provide deep-tissue massages in a quiet treatment room on the first floor of our home in the centre of Portobello, Edinburgh (see Directions & map) - please note my room is accessible by a flight of stairs. At our first meeting, I complete a Case History form to assess your present and past health. This information is completely confidential (see my Privacy Policy) and allows me to get a picture of your general health and wellbeing.

I use a suite of massage techniques to give you the most appropriate treatment. I tailor your massage to your present condition using Swedish, Thai, myofascial, deep tissue, hands-free strokes, hot stones and warm bamboo sticks; I also offer a fully-clothed Thai Table massage. At the end of the session I may make some recommendation for stretches to assist your mobility; I can also create your own individual at-home Exercise Plan.

My massage room and couch are well heated to encourage your body to relax. I check in with you periodically concerning my technique and pressure but you are invited to immerse yourself fully in the experience. Your session always lasts a full hour on the table.

Treatment room

For some of the session I use an odourless and hypoallergenic massage oil. The massage is performed respectfully beneath a drape so you always remain dignified whilst allowing me to access those muscles that require attention.

After the session, you may feel drowsy or dizzy for a short while. You may also experience residual tenderness in your muscles but this sensation will pass. I encourage you to drink plenty of water after your massage and to avoid any strenuous activity or prolonged desk work - the longer you can relax, the more you will benefit from your treatment!
