What can I expect?

At the start of your first treatment you will asked to fill out a consultation form.

Joanne steps outside the room while you get undressed and you get on the couch under a towel.  Joanne will then check you are ready, enter the room and start to treat you using the ideal pressure for you and the optimal techniques to address your problem areas.   Once Joanne is finished she will set outside to allow you to get dressed.

Joanne will utilise the time of your treatment to focus in on your problems and utilise the ideal pressure to address your issues.  This means she will focus in on certain parts of your body or muscle groups.  If you are use to spa treatments then you will notice a huge difference as she doesn’t stick to a standard routine.

Will I get oily?

No.  Joanne uses the minimal amounts of waxes or oils.

Will I need a shower?


What should I wear?

As you get undressed, any clothes are fine.  If you want to wear shorts during the treatment that is fine too.  Your modesty will be protected at all times.

How many treatments will I need?

That depends upon your issues and I will be able to advise you after your first treatment.

To give a rough guideline muscles tend to take 4 – 5 weeks to heal but this depends upon your age and underlying health, this means you normally treat muscle strains for 6 weeks.

If you have a problem with your bursa’s then the issues may resolve with treatment and other changes including training etc.the issue may resolve in  2- 3 weeks.

For my serious issues for example frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) with treatment and rehabilitation exercises it may take between 1 – 6 months to recover but this depends on your age and fitness.

How much does a deep tissue massage cost?

£65 per hour.  I only offer 1 hour treatment as I find clients come to see me with problems and I need that time to address the issue
