Therapeutic Massage Berkhamsted
Specialising in helping take care of you
Therapeutic Massage Berkhamsted
I specialise in finding and releasing tension in the body due to stress, injury or illness. Trained in both Eastern and Western massage styles, I believe in the fusion of traditional Swedish, Reflexology, Shiatsu, Sport and Deep Tissue techniques customized to each client’s needs as an effective way to quickly relieve pain and alleviate tension. My work is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
Focus areas include sports injuries, back pain, migraine, arthritis, sore neck, insomnia and pregnancy.
How I Work
In order to provide the most effective type of treatment for each session, I utilise a number of different therapeutic techniques. Here are the ones I frequently use:
Myofascial & Trigger Point Work
I tend to incorporate pieces of each technique into a single session depending on the client, their situation and what is needed. Therefore, I don't book a 'sports massage' or a 'deep tissue massage' but rather book based on time on the table.

My rates are based upon time on the table, not upon specific technique. This is primarily because I tend to incorporate pieces of each technique into a single session depending on the client and any presenting issues.
30 minute massage – £40
50 minute massage – £55
75 minute massage – £70
Methods of payment accepted are cash, bank transfer and all major credit cards.
Do keep in mind that while my rates are based upon session time, they are for the time scheduled. What do I mean by that? Well, if you are late for your session, I cannot necessarily extend your session time and the time missed cannot be added to subsequent sessions as missed time.
So just know that if you are running late for your massage appointment that the full session price will still be due as I reserved the time for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect during my first massage therapy visit?
I'll require you to fill out a health history and consent form and begin by asking you general questions to establish what areas you may be having issues with and if there are any conditions needing to be addressed. All information will be held in strictest confidence. If you are suffering from a serious medical condition or are under medical supervision, you may be asked to receive medical clearance before having a treatment.
I'll then leave the room while you get undressed down to your underwear and climb onto the table. I'll then return and begin your massage. When finished, I'll leave the room while you get dressed. We'll then have a chat about any issues that presented themselves and discuss next steps for treatment.
What do I do during a massage treatment?
Make yourself comfortable. If I need you to adjust your position, I will either move you or will ask you to move what is needed. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable.
Many people close their eyes and relax completely during a session; others prefer to talk. It's up to you. It is yourmassage, and whatever feels natural to you is the best way to relax. Do not hesitate to ask questions at any time.
How will I feel after my massage treatment?
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience a significant decrease or freedom from long-term aches and pains. Many feel a little slowed down for a short period and then notice an increase of energy, heightened awareness and increased productivity which can last for days.
If you received a deep massage, you may be slightly sore the next day - much like a good workout at the gym. Sometimes a hot shower, or a soak in the tub can ease this soreness.
After your session you should increase your water intake a bit. Just a glass or two more than normal is usually fine. This helps keep your body's tissues hydrated and healthy.
