Our Frequently Asked Questions

Will I have to fully undress?

No, you will only need to undress to the level that you are comfortable with. I will ensure that your modesty and dignity is maintained throughout our session and will only uncover the parts of the body we have agreed upon and you have consented for.

There’s a particular part of my body I don’t want to be touched or uncovered, is that ok?

Yes of course. During our consultation you can discuss any areas you don’t want me to touch and you don’t even need to give me the reason why (unless you want too).

I have health and wellbeing complexities, can I still have a massage?

We can discuss any health considerations you may have in our consultation. Massage is safe and effective for many different injuries, illnesses and wellbeing complexities, however in some cases I may advise you to discuss with your health provider (GP or health team) before we begin our sessions.

What is your cancellation policy?

I can provide a full refund if you cancel your appointment 72 hours.

Do you offer home visits?

I am happy to discuss a home visit and assess if this is something I can offer you. It may depend on the number of massages you would like and your location.

Can I meet you before I make a decision to book?

Absolutely! We can arrange a complimentary consultation session where we can discuss your needs and expectations and what I can offer.

What is the difference between a deep tissue massage and a holistic massage?

There are multiple similarities between these techniques and elements can be interchangeable.

Deep tissue massage is usually used to treat pain and muscle and sports related injuries. Holistic massage is more often used for relaxation purposes and to reduce tension caused by everyday factors, such as sitting at a desk.

Holistic massage is much gentler, using less tension than a deep tissue massage. Both use palms and fingers to knead tissue, however a deep tissue massage may involve the use of elbows and firmer touch to increase pressure.

Are you DBS checked?

Yes I am, for my work as a massage practitioner as well as for my nursing practice.

Do you work with children?

I only work with those aged 18 years and over.
