Movement & Massage
Getting you moving
Our bodies were made to move.
When we move, even just a little bit, our bodies and minds come to life.
Our muscles get warmer, more flexible, and more powerful. Our attention sharpens. Fluid flows through our joints, lubricating them so they move smoothly again. Our hearts pump fresh blood throughout our whole body. Our brains release chemicals to make us feel happy and to dull any pain we might be experiencing. And even after exercise, every part of our system goes into overdrive to help us recover and rebuild, so we can move again sooner and even better.
But modern city life has reduced our need and ability to move our bodies.
So our bodies adapt - but not enough. We do become better at not moving, but it's not how our bodies have evolved to work - the result is pain and discomfort.
I believe in honesty: so yes, sometimes things have to get a little worse before they get better. The first time you try to exercise, or the first time you get treatment or try to rehab a chronic injury, it doesn't necessarily make you feel good. It can be hard to know where to start.
That's why I'm here to support you through those changes.
I work with people to find what feels good because I believe our bodies are supposed to feel good, more often than not.
I’ve been going to see Claire for numerous visits now for lower back pain and general stiffness due to cycling and age. Very knowledgeable and thorough, understands and listens. The sessions are beneficial and using added stretches that Claire recommends help alleviate the stiffness and soreness. Totally recommend Claire for any Movement Fix
Right from the beginning Clare put me at ease and talked me though what would be right for my sore back, neck and shoulders massage wise. The massage was incredible! I have never experienced a more fascia based approach to massage and it was so unbelievably relaxing and also very powerful too. I floated home and slept very deeply straight through the night. My stiff left shoulder has significantly improved and my back too. I can highly recommend Clare’s magical hands especially if you are suffering with a tight neck, back and shoulders.
Claire has been treating my wife and I for around 4 years (not couting lock down). She has deep knowledge of various body treatments and is one of the best therapists we have ever come across. I lead a very active lifestyle and practise Brazilian Jiu Jitsu 4 to 5 times a week as well as go regularly to the gym. This creates a lot of tension and a good amount of injury. Claire has helped me numerous times with the recovery process and allowed me to keep up my active lifestyle in my late 40ies. I can highly recommend her.
