Jocelyn has been practicing Holistic Massage for 3 years, holding a Level 5 Sport and Remedial Massage Therapy Diploma from the Massage Training Institute (MTI). In addition, Jocelyn is qualified in Hot Stone Massage, a technique which can be used to support relaxation as well as targeting any niggles.
A lifelong sport enthusiast, both competing and following a number of sports, Jocelyn continues to play touch rugby, tennis and enjoys Muay Thai boxing. She has first-hand experience of the benefits of massage to relieve sporting stretches and strains.
Jocelyn’s brand of sport and remedial massage has a holistic focus, always working closely with clients to tailor the approach and treatment to individual client need. Jocelyn strongly believes in the importance of treating the person as a whole, rather than just an injury or condition whilst attempting to dispel the “no pain, no gain” stereotype of sports massage.
How do I know what will suit me?
Many people do not arrive to their first session knowing what technique will suit their needs best, by speaking to your therapist a clear understanding of your individual circumstances can be gained and a treatment pathway can be agreed with you.
I have an existing condition, how does that affect my treatment?
The best person to tell me about your condition is you, your therapist will have some knowledge, but you are your own expert and can give share what your condition means for you. We always have an initial consultation so that a full medical history can be gained, ensuring both you and your therapist can identify what would work best for you and your goals.
What if I have a cold or flu?
If you are not feeling well it is always a good decision to rebook your massage for when you feel better, as massage can sometimes accelerate the symptoms, resulting in you feeling worse.
What should I wear?
Clothing you feel comfortable in. If there is a need for you to undress, this will be explained, will always be to a level you are comfortable with and a towel is provided to ensure you are always covered.
Will it hurt?
As a therapist I do not believe in the “no pain, no gain” myth that surrounds massage. The focus is on ensuring your comfort throughout, the technique and pressure can be adapted to dependent upon your feedback.
What your first session will look like:
Initial discussion of presenting issue/reason for attending and identify goals for treatment
Gain medical history/lifestyle info
