• Sports & Remedial massage
This is a deep tissue massage that concentrates on the soft tissue that includes muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, nerves, and synovial membranes. This type of massage work can be specific if there is any part of the body injured, in pain, producing discomfort or requires more attention, or it can be less specific and more relaxing.
The first session begins with a brief assessment that includes a medical & lifestyle history and postural assessment. This assessment can help to understand possible causes and/or imbalances as the root of pain or discomfort. As part of the treatment at the end of the session, rehabilitation and remedial exercises will be suggested. These can enhance recovery, prevent injuries and improve posture and function.
This type of deep tissue massage stimulates circulation and aids lymphatic drainage therefore promoting faster healing as well as improving overall well-being. It can work at both an emotional and neurological level, retraining the brain to release muscle tension and allow the overall body to relax, and restore balance.
Sports & Remedial massage can help with musculoskeletal disorders like neck pain, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, repetitive strain injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back pain, sciatica, fasciitis, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, sports injuries & sprains.
It is also beneficial for rheumatoid arthritis: while it may not improve already damaged joints, it does give much pain relief. More importantly however, treatment works to reduce inflammation and improves the dysfunctional immune system.
Deep tissue therapy can be of great help with stress related discomfort like anxiety, migraines, back pain, insomnia, poor concentration, poor memory and general fatigue.
Massage can also help in pre/post-surgery situations; prior to an operation, getting the muscles in peak condition will speed up recovery from post-surgical procedures. Post operation, the breakdown of scar tissue incisions lessens visible scars and prevents muscle atrophy.
Deep tissue massage has shown to be effective at treating all these conditions

Another problem I had was with my breathing, I was often short of breath. Claudia pressed certain trigger points on my chest and collar bones and manipulated my shoulders thereby opening my respiratory system, I now have more energy and no longer have to gasp to catch my breath.
Claudia is a real find and I can’t recommend her highly enough"
Sports & Remedial Soft Tissue Massage therapy
Claudia started on my left leg and hip. Suddenly emotions arose. I felt safe in Claudia's presence and let go. While the physical pain did not go away and Claudia and I agreed that I see an osteopath or a physio for it, she did help me release through tears “stuck” emotions. Claudia helped unblock emotional weight carried in my heart! Thank you, Claudia. - B."
