Rachel Grant

With a deep interest in mind body connection after decades exploring physical movement and wellbeing through dance in a semi-professional capacity, practicing yoga since 2001, as well as working with pilates and physio exercises, I came to focus on massage.

I work with my clients to develop personalised effective treatment plans.

I have trained in holistic massage, remedial and sports massage, and am in ongoing training with ex England rugby team physio Dave O'Sullivan at ProSport Academy. My treatments can therefore incorprate relaxation, relief from injury and pain, and improve limited range of movement. Deep massage practice is not about pain but rather about having an acute understanding of the body and its interactions in order to work delicately and precisely to achieve the most beneficial outcome.

I offer each modality of massage or a combination of the three according to what you want. We discuss your symptoms, needs, and your goals. If you wish then I work with you to develop an appropriate self-care programme which is motivating and achievable.

Whatever the style of massage you prefer I can use simple techniques to diagnose which muscles need attention, then work with the nervous system to rebalance hypo- or hyper- tonic tone. We can then retest. One thing I love about it is that I, and you the client, get to clearly experience whether the treatment has been effective. If not we re-think to arrive at a beneficial treatment plan. The simple testing techniques and overall improvement allow you to chart your progress.

Massage can address both physical and emotional health, and the interaction between the two. I am fascinated by the interplay between the physical and emotional body, the strong replication of the mindset in the body. I encourage self-awareness, partly through the exploration of subtle physical adjustments and their effects.

I have a continuing and ever changing personal practice exploring my own emotional and physical health including but not limited to ankle, hips, pelvis, and jaw. I am a mum, and my experience has shown me that my physical health and emotional wellbeing has a profound affect on the happiness of myself, my family, our family dynamics, and the quality of our relationships.

I have clients who come regularly for relaxation, I hear how they grow in self awareness and their ability to manage their reactions. A client who was unable to sit for more than half an hour without pain, to sitting for three hours within 2 weeks. I have a client who couldn't walk around her house without pain, and 9 weeks later went for a 2 week walking holiday. It's amazing.
