I offer mobile massage services including sports massage, deep tissue massage and relaxation massage in the Morzine, Montriond and Les Gets area of the Portes du Soleil region.
With a strong scientific background, I am keen to incorporate evidence-based approaches to the treatments I offer. The priority is always to understand the needs of the individual, and then to tailor the approach to suit their aims for the sessions. Not all massage needs to be deep tissue, and the approach taken will be in response to the specific requests of the individual.
Although my training includes a sports focus, it is not only for the sporty. Whilst regular massage can form an important part of any training programme to ensure any potential muscle imbalances and niggles are addressed early before causing injury, everyday lifestyle factors, such as hours spent in front of the computer, can also result in a build up of tension and discomfort and massage can help to relieve these issues.
Recovery and relaxation are important, and tailored massage treatments can support optimal recovery after sporting events, as well as aid general relaxation and wellbeing.
I have a doctorate in neuroscience and spent over 20 years working in the biomedical field, in both academic research and a variety of roles in the pharmaceutical industry. I trained as a sports massage therapist alongside my day job, and decided to step away completely from the corporate world in 2020 to focus on a life in the mountains, and to use my training to help others make the most of their time here in the Morzine area. I hold a BTEC level 5 soft tissue therapy qualification, as well as ITEC Level 3 holistic and sports massage qualifications. I am a keen swimmer and cyclist, and am happiest when doing something active outdoors.
What to expect
We will arrive about 10 mins before your appointment time, to allow us time to get set up and have a brief consultation with you ahead of the massage.
We will have everything we need for the massage with us, from the massage couch to the towels. Please ensure that there is enough room to set up the massage couch up (approx 2 x 1m) and room to move around it.
We use towels to ensure you are covered during the massage, with only the area currently worked on being uncovered, but we do ask that you keep your underwear on. Please feel free to wear whatever else keeps you comfortable.
Massage is a very individual experience. The massage delivered will always be tailored to your needs, based on the information you provide during the booking process and in the pre-massage consultation.
