What to expect
A confidential consultation process is included in the initial treatment, to discuss details about your current health and medical history. An assessment will be carried out to determine postural imbalances in the body, to identify soft tissue and joint dysfunctions.
Through joint mobilisations, stretching, Soft Tissue Release, Cupping and Acupressure, Holly adopts an intuitive, holistic approach, incorporating techniques and principles from Western and Eastern modalities.
Massage can help with relieving everyday stress, inducing relaxation, aiding sleep and promoting a sense of well-being.
