Touch Physique Muscle & Bodywork Therapies
From several years involvement in recreational sports I bring a love and understanding for the dynamics of freedom, movement and agility.
I have always been very amazed of how complex and simple the body is and how it functions. I bring a great respect for the body and my passion for health and healing I have made sure my professional training is of the highest quality.
I take a holistic approach to your treatment, which means working over the whole body to ensure the root cause of the problem is addressed and I'm not simply treating the symptoms! I use a combination of recognised techniques which are tailored to meet your personal requirements.
Are you suffering from sports injury, occupational injuries, back pain or other symptoms that are impairing your quality of life, functional ability or lifestyle?
Do you have a condition or injury that is preventing you from returning to work or resuming a particular activity?
Are you are seeking an effective treatment from an experienced, professional, caring therapist?

The Bowen Technique is a very gentle, non-invasive remedial therapy. It can be done on bare skin or through light clothing.
As your therapist, I work gently over muscle, ligament, tendon and fascia on various parts of the body, creating a response of relaxation on multiple levels which reduces muscle pain, improves blood and oxygen circulation throughout the body, helps with lymphatic drainage, revitalising, re aligning and cleansing the body. There is no manipulation of joints and no prolonged pressure, there are no oils or lotions.
Bowen technique treats the whole person not just the symptoms. It consists of gentle moves over soft tissues and muscles interspersed with periods of rest. Bowen technique may assist your body in healing through the Fascia and Autonomic nervous system as well as the internal organs.
The stimulation of the treatments are like pressing ‘reset' and allowing the body to resume the natural healing process, re-organising itself and releasing muscle and fascial dysfunction via the natural activation of various neural reflexes.
By alerting the body's innate healing mechanism, the resultant effect is a rapid elimination or reduction of symptoms, followed by an increase in energy and an unmistakable sense of well being.
Bowen is also used very effectively for Sports Performance and sports injuries in general respond very well to treatment.
A Typical Treatment
You are asked to wear light, loose clothing such as joggers and a T-shirt to your appointment. A treatment is usually performed whilst you lie mostly face down on a treatment couch. If you are unable to lie in this position for whatever reason you can be treated on your side or even in a chair if that is more appropriate for you.
A first treatment will usually address your whole body; first your lower back and the back of your legs, then your upper back and shoulder area, the middle of your back and lastly your neck.
How many treatments and how often?
Each person responds differently to treatment but a minimum of between two and three sessions will be required spaced by five to ten days. Some chronic conditions that have been around a long time may require 3 - 10 sessions for long lasting results.
Treatment takes approximately 45-70 minutes.
How to book an appointment?
You can contact me by email or telephone. A letter or email will be sent to you to confirm details on what to expect and directions to the location with parking details. This will also apply to booking a free consultation.

ADVANCED DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE / SPORTS MASSAGE
Deep Tissue Massage is a specific massage requires the therapist to apply a considerable amount of pressure which in some cases may cause some discomfort to the client, however, I will always work within the comfort zone of the client. Deep Tissue also helps to free trapped nerves, oxygenate poorly circulated areas and allow the spine and joints to relax into alignment, it utilises gradual pressure to access deeper layers of the body. Treatment will take approx 1 hour and 15 mins and is specific to suit the client. Trigger point & neuro-muscular techniques are used on muscle tightness, tension or irregularity.
- Release of back and neck tension
- Lower back pain
- Reducing Sciatica
- Joint stiffness
- Increasing greater range of movement
- Improves blood circulation
- Break-up of scar tissue
- Reducing stress, tension and pain
Sports massage may benefit sports people in many ways such as helping to reduce the strain and discomfort in training, restoring lost or compromised mobility, and assisting in the proper healing of acute injuries.
Sports massage may also help to reduce muscle soreness and break up fibrosis that binds muscle fibres, which may give athletes a more consistent, higher level of training and performance.
This treatment is not just for the sports person, anyone may benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs and those not quite so obvious (occupational, emotional and postural stress may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries).
Sports massage may be used in the treatment of specific injuries, such as hamstring strains, as well as to help correct muscle imbalances, overuse and postural issues. It is these issues which should be corrected in order to prevent future injuries and improve the efficiency of our muscles and so enhance our performance.
Massage is believed to stimulate the circulation of the blood and increase lymphatic drainage. It may reduce muscle tension, lower blood pressure and relax the whole body. It may also improve digestion. The end result should be a feeling of well being, both physical and mental.
The treatment is carried out using pre-blended oils or cream depending on skin type.
Treatment be booked for 30 minutes or 1 hour.
