Welcome to Bodhi – Works
Here, you’ll learn a little about what I do and why. I’ll talk a little about the various disciplines of massage and other complimentary therapies I practice, prior to your visit. I love this work. I love meeting people, and I love seeing them returning to health. I think it is fantastically rewarding seeing a person engaging with their health and well-being. It’s also incredible to be able to just relax people as an occasional treat or for those holiday wind-downs.
One way or another, you’ll discover that there’s nothing quite like massage
I have trained specifically in Swedish Massage – that is to say, what most people might imagine a massage to be. Using long, flowing strokes, often but not necessarily in the direction of the heart, Swedish massage has been shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee, to name just a few examples.
I have taken this further to deepen my knowledge and skills with Sports/remedial massage, which deals with the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of the soft tissues of the body, such as muscles, ligaments and tendons. Among other things, sports massage can be tailored to each individuals needs to positively enhance their ability to perform.
It can improve circulation & lymphatic flow, assist in the removal of metabolic waste, increase or decrease muscle tone or muscle length or assist in mental preparation for sporting participation.
Put simply, all of this gives me the ability to help those who have had recent or chronic injury. I can help post-operatively or when your body needs a bit of extra help after a minor problem like an ankle sprain or a bit too much digging in the garden. The sports element of this gives me the ability to treat any amateur sports person who may have an injury old or new and help maintain their physical well-being so they can continue to enjoy their sports.
