Everybody has a different pain threshold and response to discomfort, and I can tailor massage to suit your preferences as well as your needs.
If you are looking for a relaxing massage with some deeper pressure, then this will not be a painful treatment! If you are looking for remedial work with deep-set tensions then there may well be some discomfort as we work on those congested areas, but equally you could opt for some aromatherapy to help with this. Nobody should be put off having tensions dealt with for fear of being hurt, there are ways to avoid it.
My aroma-sports fusion 5-point scale is a useful tool, and I encourage clients to be clear about their needs, expectations and preferences. I will ask you during the consultation, and I always follow up after a treatment to see if you have any feedback.
Your reaction to deeper massage work will be helped by having regular treatments and looking after yourself in between. Following my aftercare and stretching advice can help your body get rid of toxins and maintain the improvements achieved through treatment.
