My name is Anna and back in 2015 after being made redundant from my 9-5 office job I got to follow my dream and become a massage therapist! I set up Relax Therapies and never looked back. I am a geek about how muscles work and love putting this knowledge to use in massage therapy.
For five years running I have won the top 3 best rated award for massage therapists on the Wirral
I love running (albeit slowly) and lifting weights and because movement is so important to me I want my clients to have the freedom to move as much as they want to and to be able to play sports or enjoy whatever hobbies they choose.
My promise to you
I am committed to providing safe and effective massage and sports therapy. I will work with you to find the cause of your pain and relieve it or help you manage it. Ethics are super important to me so if I don’t think I can help you I will be honest with you and refer you to someone better placed to help.
Each session is tailored to you and your needs – no cut and paste massages here! For that reason I take time to really get to know you in my intake and I will ask about your hobbies and your job – this helps me get a feel for the physical demands you place on your body every day. I will also ask about your stress levels and what makes your pain better or worse. With this information I will work with you to put together the perfect massage. Want more time on your neck? Hate having your feet touched? No problem. It’s YOUR massage.
I promise to treat you and your body with respect, listen to your concerns and explain the treatment to you step by step to make you feel comfortable and safe. I have a screen for you to undress behind and you will always be covered with a towel with only the area I am working on uncovered. It is my mission that everyone feels safe to come for massage with me free of worry about judgement (what I mean here is that you don’t need to worry about getting undressed – I am not going to laugh at your wobbly bits).
I will empower you to help yourself at home with simple self help techniques such as at home exercises, or pain management strategies. This is essential as I believe you can have the best massage ever but if you go back to do the things that caused pain before the pain will come back. It’s my job to not just relieve your pain with a massage but educate you on how to stop it coming back.
I use only cruelty free vegan products because I love animals and their welfare is important to me! I minimise the use of plastic and donate some of my profits to plant trees and fund climate projects because I think it’s important to take care of our planet!
If you have any questions please get in touch and I will get back to you.
