Laura is qualified in both Swedish and Sports & Remedial Massage and is a member of the Scottish Massage Therapists Organisation. She will work with you to decide on the most beneficial treatment for you, taking into account any injuries and health conditions.
When asked to name 3 things that inspired her, Laura said that her love of coastal rowing, efficiency and kindness led her to train as a massage therapist. She has a particular interest in resolving niggling muscle issues as well as the sense of relaxation and wellbeing that clients get from her massage therapy.
In Swedish Massage therapy soft tissues and muscles are worked to help restore balance and health by relaxing the muscles in your body and releasing pain and tension. By relieving muscle tension, a Swedish massage can be both relaxing and energizing. And it may even help after an injury.
Remedial and Sports massage therapy can be a way of relieving sports related muscle strain such as DOMS and/or resolving particular muscle dysfunction and pain. It can combine deep tissue Swedish techniques with muscle energy, mobilisations and other techniques. Remedial and Sports treatment involves a thorough physical assessment in which the therapist observes you and your movement both generally and also through range of movements involving the muscles/joints in question.
Laura offers appointments at Portobello Natural Health on Wednesday evenings and the 1st Saturday of the month.
