Michelle has been practising massage for over 20 years, and offers relaxation, deep tissue and oriental massage (tuina).
Oriental massage (tuina) may be effective for treating headaches, migraines, tennis elbow and sciatica, and it is also relaxing. Michelle will often combine massage with cupping (see below) and acupuncture, which may help to treat muscle pain and injury. Chinese massage may help provide relief from acute and chronic pain.
Michelle has had many years experience providing pregnancy massage and can combine this with cupping and/or an acupuncture treatment.
Cupping follows the lines of the five meridians which run over the back. Cups are usually placed along these lines. The suction and negative pressure provided by the cups may help to loosen muscles, encourage blood flow and relax the nervous system. Cupping may help to relieve back and neck pain, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines and rheumatism.
