Hi my name is John Freeman. After living my dream job in the Navy I have struggled to find the place where I really fit into this world. It has taken me a lot of years and different occupations from mechanical fitting to bookkeeping to realise that it is in my nature to assist and help other people achieve their health goals.
I have a natural caring side that just wants to help people out. This gives me satisfaction that I have made a difference to that person’s life.
My goal in the profession of remedial massage therapy is to help ease pain and discomfort and direct you on a path of relieving stress or helping with the rehabilitation from injury. I can assist you in making better health and wellbeing choices through massage and stretching techniques which can reduce discomfort in your day to day life.
When you come to me with soreness or an existing condition, I enjoy the challenge of discovering what part of the body the issue has originated from, and applying the correct techniques to reach your desired outcome. Massage can increase blood flow and oxygen to problem areas which enables the body’s systems to function more effectively and make you feel better.
Using the sensitivity of touch enables me to feel and warm the fibres of muscles through the Fascia (outer layers) to the underlying muscles, in order to locate the actual issue and disperse the toxins and assist with releasing muscle tension.
Techniques I have acquired through study and to attain my Diploma have placed me in a great position to make you feel comfortable, relaxed and confident in working towards a desired outcome.
This focuses on a problematic area of acute or chronic pain. Treatment is tailored to your specific needs to stimulate and restore your nervous system and peripheral tissues, with an ongoing treatment plan developed.
Some conditions which can be alleviated with remedial massage treatment are:
- TMJ Dysfunction
- Headache & Migraines
- Shoulder Impingement
- Plantar Faciitis
- Postural Imbalance
- Repetitive Strain Injury
Deep Tissue Massage
This technique starts with warming the outer layers of the Fascia, which is a supportive sheet running through the body, surrounding the body parts and encasing the muscles.
Working with this tissue and gradually getting deeper, with consistent pressure, into the muscle groups is what deep tissue massage is all about. When a muscle develops tightness it has a flow on affect to the rest of the muscle group.
Trigger point therapy can be used within deep tissue massage to release toxins, restore blood flow and oxygen to alleviate discomfort.
A relaxation massage treatment will usually involve flowing strokes and kneading, performed at your chosen pressure. It’s a pain free therapy and an effective way to de-stress and relax the mind and body.
The hand skills of the therapist play an integral role in creating the consistent rhythm and flow whilst maintaining constant touch throughout the massage to maximise the relaxation experience.
Our tranquil environment, coupled with soothing music, will ensure you unwind and leave feeling lightened and refreshed.
