What will my first session be like?
Clare will take a health history to understand how to plan and modify your treatment session to ensure a safe and effective massage for you. You will sign a treatment consent form. She will allow you to lead the session and communicate with her so that you are comfortable and you are receiving the massage that you want and need. Clare is easy to get on with and will not boss you around.
Do you help treat terminal or chronic illness?
Absolutely!! There are many reasons to receive a massage if you have a chronic illness, or if you are at end-of-life - there are few instances where massage is completely contra-indicated. Clare will work with you ensuring your maximum comfort and safety. If she feels it is unsafe to provide you with a massage, she will explain the reasons (ex acute infection, acute heart failure etc). Massage can help with decreasing pain, anxiety and improving sleep and movement.
What lotions do you use?
In the USA I used the fine products of PurePro (hypoallergenic). In Australia, I am trialling Premax products.
How far do you travel?
That's a great question. I live in Ashfield. My work radius will depend on time pressures of me and my clients, and my family.
