Hello, I'm Gwen
I discovered Clinical Massage Therapy after shoulder pain seriously impacted my life.
Other treatments I'd tried had little impact and I thought I'd be stuck with pain, poor sleep and limited range for ever.
Fortunately I was still open to trying new things.
This willingness to keep going helped me find a way to get out of the rut I'd been stuck in, regain full use of my arm and live a life without pain.
There is always something that we can do - sometimes you just need to look at the problem from a different perspective.
Massage Therapy allowed me to change cautiously, gently and at my pace.
I now invite my clients to do the same; to explore the possibilities, to feel supported, acknowledging and releasing tension when they are ready.
I believe change is possible, at any age and no matter how severe or chronic the issue is.
Massage Therapy could be the perfect first step towards improving your health and wellbeing.
Already receiving treatment?
That's ok, Massage Therapy can form part of your support plan to help you maintain health and wellbeing through difficult times or to help you move forward if you reach a plateau or get stuck.
I can liaise with other practioners with your permission to ensure we are all working toward the same goal.
I have a special interest in working with clients who are experiencing life with cancer.
I've undertaken advanced training in order to safely work with clients who are receiving treatment and to work with scar tissue.
In my volunteer therapist role at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital I've been privileged to witness just how beneficial Massage Therapy can be at reducing pain and anxiety.
These gentle and effective techniques of Oncology Massage are also perfect for clients who have fear around touch or treatment.
I know it's a big step but it's ok to be cautious, ask questions, think about it and talk it over.
I'm ready to help when you're ready.
