Ultrasound & Infrarential (electrical muscle stimulation) treatment only
This treatment via machine allows quick & adaptive healing - I may use this treatment as part of your wider session however sometimes it's advantageous to use them in isolation in which case we would discuss a viable treatment & pricing plan. Sessions typically would last between 10-20 minutes
What do they do?
The infrarential pulse delivers small electrical impulses (similar to TENS) to stimulate & relax the muscles in succession. This makes the treatment superb for chronic treatments where the muscles have got 'stuck' in a contracted pattern
Ultrasound provides a wave of frequency to the targeted muscle or tendon & assists in breaking down scar tissue & adhesion. As it is painless as a treatment, it is very effective for use on acute & 'fresh' injuries.
Seated Acupressure treatment
Treats the head, back, neck and shoulders through clothing in a seated position
30 minutes session - £35
Cancellation policy - If you are unable to make your pre-booked appointment, to avoid a cancellation charge, please provide a minimum of 24 hours notice of change. You WILL be charged for any missed or late cancellation of appointments if adequate notice period is not given, as this gives me a chance of being able to offer the appointment slot to someone else. Thanks for your cooperation
If you are running late for an appointment, please do try & let me know by text or phone as this may impact on your session, depending who is booked after you. I will try & accommodate late arrival but this may mean I have to reduce your session time & still charge the full fee
On request, I can provide an invoice for insurance claims & private medical insurance.
Please check that your provider accepts my treatment type and my registered associate body 'Institute of Sport & Remedial Massage' (ISRM)
Whiplash incidents - where an injury has been advised via MRI and no underlying skeletal injuries to the vertebra have been confirmed, I have good success at alleviating pain associated with whiplash injuries
Each treatment session involves preparation time, treatment & post consultation. So effectively a 45 minute session translates to 40 minutes on the couch receiving treatment.
Your first consultation is always an hour. This includes a medical history & postural assessment which takes normally between 10-15 minutes. The rest of the first session is yours for treatment.
