You're in good hands.
I am Cara, a medical massage therapist certified by the Wingate Institute.
My experience, techniques, and knowledge of the human body enable me to provide the massage therapy that is right for you, that can help keep you going through the challenges of daily life.
Why choose me?
I welcome you as you are. Your age, weight, gender, or physical condition do not matter.
I listen to you, your words and the feedback from your body.
I love what I do. My goal is to provide for your needs - whether relaxation or pain relief.
I follow research. You can benefit from new advances in pain science & medical science.
The kind of massage depends on you.
Are you stressed? Soothing, relaxing 'Swedish' massage is most appropriate.
Are you in pain - headache, backache, shoulder pain? I include Medical Massage modes and DNM.
Are you pregnant--or a new mom? I am qualified in prenatal, post-natal, baby massage.
Do you suffer from chronic pain, fibromyalgia, CRPS/RSD? Together, we find the right treatment for you.
The therapeutic techniques I use depend on what you need at the time. They may vary during a session and from session to session according to your needs.
This is why, unlike spa menus which have set prices for types of massage, my pricing is time-based.
To make an appointment, you can:
Appointments after 19:00 and on Saturdays are available for an additional fee.
If you suffer from a chronic pain condition such as fibromyalgia, CRPS / RSD, or persistent back pain:
First, we speak - via email or phone. Please ask your doctor if you can receive massage therapy.
At our first meeting, we talk about you and your experience of pain. I will want to hear any relevant medical history and details.
We set out clear guidelines: I will only work on those areas you wish me to treat - if, for example, your foot is affected by CRPS, I will massage only up to the point you indicate-- I will never attempt to pass that point without your specific instruction.
I will use the exact level of pressure you desire. This is a guiding principle of massage in general - and it is absolutely crucial in cases of chronic and persistent pain.
