Mobile Massage

 

I am a massage therapist specialising in elderly and dementia care massage. I trained at the New Zealand School of Massage Therapy in relaxation massage and have completed a workshop in both palliative care and sports massage.

I also do workplace massage along with individual clients in the Wellington Region.

 

 

Our skin is full of many millions of nerve receptors that are linked to our nervous system. When our skin is massaged is causes stimulation and release chemicals in the brain such as serotonin and dopamine which give us our zest for life while reducing the stress hormone cortisol reducing anxiety and depression.

Massage also promotes natural joint lubricant, improves posture and reduces muscle soreness by lengthening and realigning muscle fibres. It increases blood flow and supplies oxygen and nutrients to tissue, cleans metabolic waste promoting tissue healing.
