To ensure you receive the best possible treatment it is worth arriving at least five minutes prior to your appointment.
This allows time to complete a brief consultation card if you're a first timer to Massage with Ann
If you're a returning client, enabling us to catch up with your current needs and to recap on previous treatments.
As a professional therapist I like to get into those hard to reach areas that hold a lot of tension such as the hip flexors (oh yes we all know those ones!) and the good old glutes.
For your comfort I suggest wearing underwear that stretches comfortably without causing any restrictions, as well as being appropriate for your modesty. Clean towels are always used throughout your treatment to keep you snug and your privacy is assured as I only expose the area being massaged.
Also, it is preferred that your beautiful jewellery is removed and kept safely with your belongings.
With your preferred pressure and customised to meet your treatment goals, your therapy begins with cleansing and grounding at the feet.
An intuitive and holistic approach is taken to fulfill your needs throughout your treatment. You’ll float away into total bliss.
I perform a firm form of Swedish massage, otherwise known as the ‘Classic’ massage; a foundational technique for massage therapy. By using a variety of pressure from light to deep strokes to kneading the muscle, this type of massage is adapted for the therapeutic and remedial treatment. Thereby I incorporate trigger point therapy and soft tissue manipulations (otherwise known as deep tissue) in all my massage treatments. Your treatment will encourage the release of toxins in your tight muscles and aid in lengthening the connective tissue to work out any niggling tension knots.
The choice is yours if you’d like to spend your treatment time on problem areas alone (the 60 minute Restoration Hour is good for this) or enjoy the benefits of experiencing a full body session. It is worth mentioning that a full body massage is best performed in 75-90 minutes. Any less time can result in missing out some body parts.
I love massaging with organic unrefined virgin coconut oil to nourish your skin, improving the strength of the body’s largest living organ, and aiding in reducing fine lines & wrinkles too which is always a bonus! Carrier oils are something I enjoy experimenting with, so watch this space!
Your therapy completes with removing unwanted energy from the scalp activating and enhancing clarity and positive energy flow. You’ll walk away feeling revitalised.
Taking time out for yourself a minimum of once a month will reduce your stress levels, decrease depression and anxiety & encourage improved flexibility, improved posture, reduce muscle and joint discomfort and promote longevity.
It’s a feel good factor!
