Below are the various options for massage in your own home, including clothed treatments which take up less time…
Traditional Massage on a Couch
I bring my deluxe massage couch with its extra inch of memory foam heaven, and full kit – towels, waxes (even more lush than oils), choice of music and candles. Clients say it’s like being supported by clouds – no reason why you should skimp on comfort, just because you’re at home.
My standard massage is now 60 minutes, having adjusted to client demand, though I am always happy to work for longer! I like nothing less than 75 minutes for myself, but truly it’s what works for you – your body, your time, pocket and needs.
Bodywork on the Floor
Using a futon with a foam topper instead of the couch, allowing me to offer a stronger ‘bodywork’ style of massage whether you need an emergency session or just demand more of your body on a daily basis. Some clients just love the sense of being on the floor.
The timing of these treatments depends entirely on what we are aiming to achieve. If it’s an acute problem I may work for just 30 or 45 minutes. Or, as mentioned above, you can have the standard 60 minute massage (or longer).
(For some injuries and ailments, and those who want less TLC and a more robust margin of physical wellness, go to the section on Rossiter).
Seated Acupressure Massage
Instead of my deluxe massage couch, I bring my deluxe chair! Also very comfy, ergonomically designed and surprisingly relaxing. Whether you work from home or a shorter, clothed treatment just suits you better, this fits the bill. Some clients see this as a really simple and affordable way to look after their neck, shoulders and back. Some alternate it with a monthly couch massage.
These seated sessions are 15, 30 or 45 minutes in length, once I’ve set up.
How It Works
You choose the room that suits you best, and while I set up, you complete your Consultation Form. We discuss any medical issues and your needs on the day…then we begin…
Because I come to you, I can fit around your timetable – evenings and weekends too. It can be for just you, you and a friend or partner, or the whole family – a spa day at home!
To enable you to be the expert for your body – if you’re not already. You have inhabited your body for all the years you’ve been alive – likelihood is, somewhere, you’ll have an amazing internal file of reference. It’s my job to encourage you to access and utilise that information.
To offer you a massage from a truly holistic perspective i.e. potentially looking at every area of your life to see what supports you to be the very best you can be, with a body functioning to its optimum. And… to facilitate that process of positive change.
