Less Pain. More Life.

It’s too late to rewind the clock and stretch for 15 minutes a day like the doctors told you, but it’s not too late to feel better.

“I have arthritis and reflex sympathetic dystrophy. I first visited Sandra ten years ago limping and in pain. Now I’m in much less pain, hardly limp and always feel better after the session than when we first started.”

“As soon as Sandra started the massage, I knew she was good. She got to the area, got to the knots and worked on them. We always have a giggle too.”

“Through a combination of being hunched over a laptop all day and my age (I get a few aches and pains), we catch up once a month to free up some of that discomfort.”

What is your pain preventing you from doing?

Playing sports?

Making the most out of life?

Playing with your children/grandchildren?

… Or is it making everyday life that bit harder?

Whatever it’s stopping you from doing we’ll:

Ease your pain.

Free up your muscles

Improve your mobility

… So you can do whatever you want to do, pain-free.

Whether you have a medical condition or need some support regaining some movement, I will help.

Think of your muscles as elastic bands 

If you pull an elastic band really tight, the tension makes it hard to move the band around, doesn’t it? 

If it was loose, it’d be easy to move. That’s like your muscles. If your muscles are tight, they’re putting constant pressure on your joints. 

We’ll loosen up your muscles, taking the pressure off your hips, knees, shoulders, neck and back.

If it’s not your neck, it’s your shoulder.

If it’s not your lower back, it’s your hips or your knees.

And sometimes it feels like the pain is anywhere with a joint.


Don’t let pain win. Let’s target the root of the problem and make it better.

How does it work?


Step One

Book yourself in for a 30-, 45- or 60-minute session

This gives you the flexibility to make your massage work around your working day or your other time or budget considerations.

Step Two

Fill out the online consulation form to tell me a bit about your history

I’ll email you the form or you can fill it out yourself online. Filling it out beforehand means I can safely perform your massage and maximise the time we have on the day.

Step Three

Enjoy your massage therapy.

Before we get started, we’ll find out how you’re feeling to make sure nothing has changed since you filled out the consultation form.

Step Four

Leave feeling better than when you arrived

We’ll have targeted your key pain areas, working the muscles to undo knots and relieve tension on your joints.

Step Five


If you repeat the same behaviours that led to your pain, you’ll not get better. It’s why I’ll give you stretches to perform or tips on how to avoid the same pain happening again in the future. 

What massage therapies will we typically do?
