Massage and Manual Therapy - Medical and Relaxation
Welcome. My name is Clare Landy. I am a Physiotherapist and Massage Therapist, specialising in relaxation, prenatal, oncology and lymphoedema/lymphatic massage and lymphoedema treatment. I have extensive experience working with the elderly, post-op/acute, chronic conditions and during/post cancer treatment.
I am a gentle therapist, providing massage and manual therapy to those with the following conditions: chronic pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic neurological problems, frail elderly, chronic swelling in body, lymphedema (primary and secondary) and many more. I have Oncology Massage Training, to allow me to treat cancer patients safely. Just call to discuss your problems and to see if I can help you. I will visit clients in their homes, and treat either on their own beds, or provide a massage table or chair. The aim of the treatments is to provide relief from discomfort, reduce swelling/edema, to help restore and/or improve function, and to promote relaxation.
A well-known gentle form of massage, helpful in providing relief from many ailments. It is great for relaxation, pain relief and improving joint range of motion.
A gentle and safe massage experience, where the therapist designs a specific treatment plan with the client's medical and personal needs considered.
MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE (MLD)
This is a gentle form of massage designed to move stagnant lymph fluid from areas in the body where it is trapped. It is especially useful during and post cancer treatment, and post surgery. It is also essential in the management of primary and secondary lymphedema. People with chronic venous congestion (swelling in lower legs) would benefit from this massage along with prescription of compression garments. MLD is also recommended for ladies with lipedema.
As well as massage, an important component of my treatments includes education in self-care and maintenance.
Pregnancy is a wonderful time, but many women suffer from joint aches and pains and swelling in their legs and hands. Massage can help relieve these discomforts. I come equipped with several pillows to help bolster and support ladies in sidelying while they feel cared for and indulged. Massage pressure and joint stretches are adjusted to the needs of the individual.
A relaxing and stimulating massage targeted at neck, shoulders, arms, upper body and lower back. Delivered without the need to remove clothing or require the use of lotions/oils. Delivered to your home, workplace or function. Sessions can range from 5' to 15' for each individual.
MASSAGE FOR BURNS SURVIVORS
A massage session designed to address any areas of concern and/or for comfort and relaxation, taking care to promote movement and healing.
This is a wonderful form of full-body massage. The client is virtually naked on the table (draping is used between the legs and over the chest) and oil is used liberally to allow a flowing form of massage (minimal stopping). It is deeply relaxing and nurturing. The table is covered with a vinyl sheet to allow the therapist to glide over and under the client. From Massage Magazine 2017, "Lomilomi is an ancient Hawaiian restorative healing system, one component of which is the art of compassionate touch.
Lomilomi goes far beyond massage, however; it also reflects the connection we have with the land (‘aina), the spirit guides or ancestors (‘aumakua) and the breath of life (aloha)." A 90 minute session allows approx 60 minute massage time along with therapist warming up and cooling down (breathing, praying, adjusting draping etc). Music is also a part of the session (Hawaiian influences - drums, waves, chanting, singing). The room must be heated to allow the client to be comfortable.
WHAT AM I PASSIONATE ABOUT?
Helping people feel better. Helping people to understand their condition and how to improve their health and well-being. Helping people relax. Supporting clients holistically.
