Remedial and sports massage aims to remedy specific problem areas and is not carried out in a particular sequence but in accordance with your needs.
Rehabilitation advice is also given to help improve recovery. I'm a great believer in taking responsibility for our own well-being and the huge health benefits that can be made by making small changes to our lifestyles.
What can I expect at my first appointment?
At the first appointment, you will be asked to complete a confidential new patient questionnaire which will ask you about your lifestyle, any existing medical conditions as well as your medical history, and the reason why you require treatment.
This information combined with an examination will help determine specific problem areas so that a relevant treatment plan can be discussed and appropriate rehabilitation advice given.
How long will I require treatment?
That's dependent on you and the condition. A recommended treatment plan will be discussed at the initial consultation.
Many clients continue with monthly 'maintenance' treatments which can help prevent problems recurring or new ones from happening. Regular massage helps keep the muscles toned and relaxed, dealing with any little tensions in the body before they can create any major problems... prevention being better than cure.
What conditions can benefit?
Neck & shoulder pain
Stress, anxiety, insomnia & depression
Sports injuries, sprains & strains
Leg muscle cramps
Repetitive strain injuries
How much does it cost?
An initial appointment costs £34 (£28 gym members at OCL) and includes a consultation and a 25-minute treatment. Subsequent treatments are tailored to the needs of client and will be 25, 40 or 50 minutes. Discounts are available for clients wanting to commit to a number of treatments by booking a course of 3 or 6 sessions.
