Why do we make a difference with our massage?

What’s the difference between one massage therapist and another? The simple answer is education. In order to be recognized by Professional Associations a massage therapist must have completed a minimum of 400 hours of study. 
The more important answer is experience. Only with years of experience does a therapist develop their palpation skills, which is the ability to recognize by touch the underlying structure and the tissue changes in texture and temperature and apply the appropriate pressure and technique for a particular complaint.

It is also important to understand some of the important underlying dynamics of the mind and body in conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression and other chronic conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, lymphoedema, back, neck and shoulder problems. For example tension migraine is not necessarily treated with the same massage as tension headache.

With over 2000 hours of study and 19 years experience, I offer Relaxation, Deep Tissue, Sports, Pregnancy, Lymphatic Drainage and Remedial Massage Therapy. You should feel a difference after a massage; you could have less or no pain, less or no discomfort, stiffness and headache, feel more relaxed, energetic, even taller and clearer in your mind.
