Urban Therapy

I am a professional massage therapist, as well as a 4th-year student chiropractor and have been a therapist for 5 years. I previously worked in a chiropractic clinic as a self-employed massage therapist for 2 years before deciding to branch out on my own and create my own brand and business. I am a very professional and adept massage therapist, seeing upwards of 500 patients throughout my career, and have a passion for helping people especially when they are in pain. I have played Ice Hockey since I was 5 years old, with that came many injuries and sport-related stresses on my body to which I had to seek help from a massage therapist. I was a goalie throughout my hockey career and played at an elite level for many years. In 2016 I was the first goalie for Great Britain and represented our country in Austria that year. Since then i have been directing my focus on my studies and my future of becoming a chiropractor. When not playing ice hockey, I was a very sporty child. i would partake in football, Rugby -at college-, competitive swimming, volleyball, golf, horse riding, surfing, kayaking, sailing, and many more. I always loved playing for a team and believe this gave me vital lessons throughout my life that I will always carry with me throughout my career. At university, I then had the fortune of finding an incredible gym and finding my gym family in the amazing members of majestic. This opened up a lot of opportunities for me to enter the Bodybuilding world and finally competing in my first show in the wellness category in 2019. Being so active throughout my life, I am able to relate to a lot of people in the world, how their sports or jobs affect them psychologically and physically. I can biomechanically visualise sports or day to day activities that will be affecting my patients' posture, structure and causing pain. Not only do I come from a sporting background, however, I also have increased knowledge in orthopaedic and neurological structures through training to be a chiropractor. I will always refer you to a specialist if your complaint is not of a nature that massage therapy will help. I proudly work alongside other therapists to provide individual care best for each and every patient. Here ar urban therapy, we pride ourselves in our knowledge of sports, bodybuilding and anatomy, and are able to provide outstanding therapy second to none. We are not a spa, and we believe in helping the body heal, through deep tissue massage as well as stretching and manipulative stretches. We offer deep tissue therapy for sports injuries, maintenance massages, work injuries, progression injuries, as well as a more therapeutic style massage for those not wanting such a deep tissue massage. please visit our website at: http://urbantherapy.websites.looka.com/

What do you love most about your job?

I love being able to help those in need of pain relief

What inspired you to start your own business?

Playing ice hockey for so long, I had so many issues with my back. I saw an amazing massage therapist and instantly decided I wanted to be like her and be able to help other people like me who are in pain and need help in some way, even if I can't help 'myself' as such, I know how it feels to be in pain and not know what to do about it and just having to live with it. Knowing there is someone out there who can help you is just amazing!

Why should our clients choose you?

I am a kind, friendly, knowledgeable therapist with a bubbly personality and I will put you at ease instantly. I am very good at my job as I have put time, hard work and effort into being the best therapist I can be for my clients.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

No, unfortunately. Although plans to branch out into Southampton are underway!

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

I aim to always keep your health as first priority. I have been vaccinated and continue to wear a mask throughout treatment. Cleaning between clients is of utmost importance to me and have always done so, this will never change. Clients are not required to wear a mask during treatment however should do so upon entering the clinic.

Swedish massage - This is a gentle type of full body massage that is ideal for people who have a lot of tension, are sensitive touch and are new to massage. It can help to release muscle knots and is a good choice if you want to fully relax during your treatment.

Hot stone massage - Hot stone massage is best for people who have muscle pain and tension or who simply want to relax. The massage therapist uses heated stones in lieu of or in addition to their hands.

Aromatherapy massage - Aromatherapy massages are best for people who want to have an emotional healing component to their massage. Aromatherapy massages combine soft, gentle pressure with the use of essential oils. Essential oils are diluted before being applied to the skin.

Deep tissue massage - Deep tissue massage uses more pressure than a Swedish massage. It is a good option if you have chronic muscle problems such as soreness, injury or imbalance.

Sports massage - Sports massage is a good option if you have a repetitive use injury to a muscle such as what you may get from playing a sport. It’s also a good option if you are prone to injuries because it can be used to help prevent sports injuries.

Trigger point massage - Trigger point massages are best suited for people who have injuries, chronic pain, a specific issue or condition. Sometimes areas of tightness in the muscle tissues, known as trigger points can cause pain in other parts of the body. By focusing on relieving trigger points, this type of massage can reduce pain.

Reflexology - Reflexology is a great option for people who are looking to relax or restore their natural energy levels. It is also a good option if you aren’t comfortable being touched on your entire body. Reflexology uses gentle to firm pressure on different pressure points of feet, hands or ears.

Shiatsu massage - Shiatsu massage is best for people who want to feel relaxed and relieve stress, pain and tension.

Thai massage - Thai massage is best for people who want a more active form of massage and want to reduce and relieve pain and stress.

Prenatal massage - Prenatal massage can be a safe way for women to get a massage during pregnancy. It can help reduce pregnancy body aches, reduce stress and ease muscle tension.

Couple’s massage - A couple’s massage is a massage that you do with your partner, friend or family member in the same room. Other treatments such as pedicures, facials, and body scrubs are sometimes offered as part of a package.

Chair massage - A chair massage is best for people who want a quick massage that focuses on your neck, shoulders and back. A chair massage can also be a way to introduce you to massage if you have never had one before. This type of massage uses light to medium pressure.

There are a number of factors that are worth considering before choosing your masseuse.

  • Choice – It is important to consider why you want a massage. Do you want to find relief from chronic pain or are you just looking for a way to relax? Deciding why you want to get a massage will help you narrow down your options and find the right massage therapist.

  • Comfort- Getting a massage is a great way to relax both physically and mentally. It is easier to take advantage of this benefit when you feel totally comfortable. That is why you should find a massage therapist that makes you feel comfortable and at ease.

  • Recommendations – You are likely to have at least one friend or family member that has visited a professional massage therapist and read their reviews on Bark.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local massage therapists listed will give you a relaxing and therapeutic massage.

You could look for massage therapists with a Level 3 Diploma in Massage or Complementary Therapies. The Council for Soft Tissue Therapies (GCMT) is the governing body for massage therapy and recommends that all massage therapists have taken a full or part-time course.

Before you choose a massage therapist, you could read testimonials and read details of their services on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and read massage reviews from past customers too. This might also help you get some ideas for the type of massage you want to book.
