I completed a Diploma in Remedial Massage with The Northern Institute of Massage in 2010. The college has taught Swedish massage and sports techniques since 1924. The emphasis is on helping to ease musculoskeletal discomfort and conditions. Remedial massage is performed using a little oil on bare skin. I use oils derived from plants and some essential oils rather than any mineral oils.
In 2014 I completed an advance diploma in a very special form of manual therapy. The Hendrickson Method utilizes a unique rhythmic, oscillating stroke called wave mobilization ©. This stroke is highly effective and profoundly relaxing. The method combines this stroke with joint mobilizations and muscle energy techniques to restore mobility and relieve tightness and discomfort in the body’s soft tissues and in and around joints.
The Hendrickson Method can be performed over light clothing and is appropriate for most clients and for both acute and chronic conditions.
I often use techniques from both methods to achieve the best outcome for each client.
