"I am totally committed to providing all of my clients with personal and professional treatments tailored to their specific needs" - Louise
Initially, I was curious to try Facial Reflexology but soon came to love my sessions with Louise. The treatment is sublimely relaxing, Louise is very generous with her wealth of knowledge, not just health wise but in many areas of life. I've suffered various hormonal imbalances that really benefited from Facial Reflexology, plus it's helped with digestion issues. I look forward to every treatment, feel blissfully content afterwards, often having drifted into a deeply relaxed state. Louise is a true professional, she has created a lovely treatment space, and always gives 100% amazing treatments.
When looking for a practitioner, I look for honesty and for someone I can trust. Louise offers both. Louise offers not only a great experience but sound detailed knowledge and constructive advice to take away and act upon. Her commitment to offering her clients well thought out and researched advice, I find is invaluable.
Visited Louise as I had developed a bad back, she was incredibly professional and thorough, it was painful but my back has given me no trouble since.
Frequently asked questions
Is sports massage just for sports injuries?
No. in fact, the majority of people who come for treatments have issues that are nothing to do with sport. This can be postural, issues related to their job, gardening, inactivity etc. Sports massage helps maintain functional fitness whatever your age or activity level.
How do I choose between Foot and Facial Reflexology?
This is entirely a personal preference. With a foot reflexology there is more interaction between the therapist and the client during the treatment. During a facial treatment there is no dialogue as it requires the client to relax so that the facial muscles are not engaged.
What is the difference between Swedish massage and sports massage?
Sports massage uses the same techniques as Swedish Massage, effleurage and petrissage at the start of the treatment. Other techniques are used dependant on the presenting condition, range of movement testing, palpation and functional testing. These include, frictions, transverse frictions, trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques and connective tissue therapy. Some of these may be more painful, but only to a level that the client determines.
What do I need to bring to my treatment?
Foot Reflexology: Just yourself. Socks/tights and shoes will be removed. Don't worry if you have been on your feet all day as your feet will be cleaned prior to the treatment.
Is there an extra charge for the initial treatment?
No, although you will need to allow an additional 30 minutes to your treatment time to allow for the consultation process.
