Cathy has been practising Swedish Massage for over 20 years in exclusive health hydros in the UK, South Africa, Australia and the US.
She now specialises in Sports & Remedial Massage Therapy, providing a deep tissue massage for injured, knotted or simply tired and overworked muscles. Her sports massage helps to:
- enhance performance
- aid recovery
- prevent injury
Having trained in India, Cathy is also a Yoga Teacher so provides stretches and exercises for rehabilitation.
Cathy’s treatments commence with a full consultation to discuss health, fitness, diet, injury and diagnosis.
During her treatment the soft tissue of the injured area(s) are then manipulated for enhanced rehabilitation from injury or over-use. This will help to achieve:
- relief of muscle soreness or pain
- maintenance of muscle balance, skeletal alignment and improved flexibility
Tailored stretches, exercises and advice are often given to further aid rehabilitation and prevent further injury.
Yoga and massage compliment the more competitive sports that Cathy enjoys and gives her a great empathy for sporting injuries.
Cathy says: ”I love massage because it frees the body from accumulated tension to allow us to live our busy and active lifestyles. I can’t think of a more wonderful way to improve circulation and metabolism than simply relaxing on the massage couch”.
Cathy will be working at Luck’s Yard Clinic on Thursday mornings between 9.00 – 11.00am.
