BREAST CANCER AFTERCARE - LYMPHATIC PRESSURE THERAPY

1 hour: £45.00
course of 8 hours: £320.00
MYOFASCIAL RELEASE THERAPY
Fascia is the connective tissue of the body. It envelopes every bone, organ, muscle and each muscle strand. Tightness within the fascia can cause discomfort or pain. Myofascial release focuses on releasing tightness specifically of the muscles. This technique works so well with craniosacral techniques and trigger point therapy, which we use in our sports and remedial work.
60 mins: £45.00
90 mins: £60.00
ADVANCED CLINICAL MASSAGE– an outcome-based treatment also known as remedial massage, focus may lead to the relief of aches and pains due to a condition or illness. Trigger point therapy, myofascial release and stretching are used alongside the regular techniques to help ease the client out of pain and towards comfort.
ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE– Advanced massage methods will be used to assist footballers and other athletes back onto the pitch, track or into the gym. A session may include a treatment and management of injury or improvement in range of motion, vital for any athlete.
THERAPEUTIC – Our bodies are designed to cope with short - term stress and sometimes balance is naturally restored to the body. Long-term stress inhibits the balancing process and therapeutic massage may offer a solution to that feeling of "out of balance". Therapeutic massage can leave you feeling as if aches are melting away. This energy balancing treatment may be used in conjunction with cransiosacral techniques.
ONCOLOGY MASSAGE– A very gently approach to assist those who may have, or have had, cancer as a health challenge. Whether post surgery, or with ongoing medical intervention, oncology massage can help a client/patient feel more comfortable.

"As it is 4 years since I had breast cancer and subsequently a double mastectomy I didn't really think that I would see any benefits [in treatment with Anna]. However the increased range of movement through the muscle "reawakening", especially in my shoulders, was considerable. What I had previously thought was the onset of arthritis in my shoulders giving pain and restricting movement improved and subsequently disappeared over the course of the programme. I noticed an improvement in my overall feeling of wellbeing too.
I wish that I had been offered this at the time of my treatment. After finishing chemo I felt very vulnerable whilst waiting for surgery, to have had a pathway of support which included the lymphatic massage would have been really beneficial.".
JP, West Sussex
I first went to see Anna at the end of what was a gruelling treatment for breast cancer - chemo, mastectomy, radiotherapy. I was in a lot of pain, had very limited movement in my left arm and emotionally was very fragile .... I just couldn't function how I used to. Four sessions of Breast Cancer Aftercare later and things definitely improved. I had more movement and less pain. We are so lucky to have this therapy in the local area. ...... It makes such a difference to be able to talk about it [treatment & recovery] in such a safe and caring environment. Well done Anna. And thank you for training in this ground-breaking therapy".
SD, West Sussex.
"As a back pain sufferer and chiropractor I fully appreciate the need for comprehensive and progressive soft tissue massage. Anna has helped me personally with a variety of related musculoskeletal problems and I have seen and appreciated the experience and diligence she has first hand. I don't hesitate to call her when I need her and I don't hesitate to refer my patients to her. She establishes therapeutic goals and uses her considerable toolkit to work towards them and that's the mark of a professional."
"Anna is a therapist with a difference. She combines a very comprehensive range of skills incorporating a grounded and scientific/physical with a wonderful holistic and highly perceptive healing touch."
"I was persuaded by a friend to see Anna as I had had a very stiff neck for some time. A few sessions later my neck was free again. I would recommend her to anyone."
TA, West Sussex
"Anna’s Massage: fantastic, divine, intuitive, optimal therapeutic value, transformational, whilst held in safe space, could really trust her. Kind, considerate. Go through any “Best Practice Tips” in a massage manual and multiply by 1 million – and you have an outline of Anna’s treatment sessions."
CP, Teacher & Counselling Psychologist
"With her positive and professional approach, she relieved me from my pain in my problem areas, namely neck and lower back .... Looking forward to meeting Anna again in one of her next visits to Istanbul."
"I have always suffered from tension in my back and shoulders. Anna does an amazing job at getting rid of all the tension that has built up. I look forward to going for a back massage and as well as making me feel better it’s great quality, relaxation time. Anna puts me at ease and is very calm and professional. I would definitely recommend her!"
"I feel privileged to receive treatments from Anna. Since she is very much in tune with the person on the treatment table, she intuitively knows what work she needs to do. I always feel fantastic after her treatments. I have received hundreds of massages from many different therapists and Anna ranks on the very top. As a therapist myself, and having given thousands of massages, I know that being as good as Anna is, it takes commitment and dedication. And that she is: dedicated and committed."
IC, Holistic Bodyworker
"…. excellent. Anna took great care …. I have 22 years experience of high standard, non-league football and Anna’s treatment and professionalism is second to none.”
WW, Asst Manager, EPFC, Sussex
"I came in pain, tired and in lots and lots of stress and I am leaving with almost no pain, at ease and feel very well right now. I wish you would still be here for some time so that I repeat the treatment."
"Anna always came across as a friendly and approachable lady .…. I feel that Anna Parsons is a very professional, organised and caring person who always wants to help people. I now see Anna once a month as a maintenance to keep my body in shape and strong and that shows great testament to Anna and the services she provides.”
DH, Football Coach.
