About Nicola:

Whilst I initially trained in sports massage, my subsequent training to use different techniques, enables me to provide a bespoke and nurturing treatment working either on a specific area or the whole body, whether you are active/inactive have cancer or have had cancer. I can provide a more therapeutic style of massage to calm mind and body, improve your immune system or focus on treating specific injuries/dysfunction using massage or dry needling techniques.

Treatments will be completely tailored to ensure your needs are met according to your stage of health, whether thats over a single session or if a longer treatment plan is required.

Massage and/or dry needling can release soft tissue tension, relieve stiffness, decrease muscle spasms, release restrictions and soften and realign scar issue and loosen up adhesions, helping to restore optimal function. By releasing tension and restrictions in soft tissue, using a range of techniques, it can help to re-establish a balance in muscle function where needed and increase mobility and flexibility, ultimately reducing stress on joints and contribute to overall physical and emotional well being.

Nicola also specialises in Oncology Massage.

Why is Oncology Massage Different?

I understand the symptoms and treatments of cancer to ensure the massage is modified according to the stage of your treatment and health on the you are wanting a massage. The approach I use for a client who has breast cancer will be very different to a client who has non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. This being in terms of the techniques I use, the areas I work on and the length of the treatment. This may change over time according to your stage of health and the goals of your treatment, which could change over time.

The Benefits of Massage if you have or have had Cancer

  • Increases relaxation - encourages deeper breathing

  • Improves quality of sleep

  • Relieves muscle soreness

  • Increases movement / mobility / range of movement

  • Offers pain relief

  • Decreases anxiety and depression

  • Stimulates lymphatic flow

  • Decreases oedema and lymphedema

  • Stimulates the sympathetic nervous system

  • Stimulates digestive system

  • Faster recovery from anaesthesia

  • Stimulates faster wound healing

  • Decreases chemo and radiotherapy symptomology

  • Shortens length go hospital stays

  • Feels less isolated

What to expect from your Appointment?

At the start of your first appointment, I will ask you to complete an intake form and also discuss with you the goals of your session - whether that be to relieve specific pain/discomfort/tension, to feel more relaxed or help you to sleep better. I will design the session so it is entirely bespoke to you according to how you feel on the day. The massage will not be painful, but will use firm pressure and a range of techniques. I will work for anywhere between 15-60mins, I will let your body dictate how long the session should last. If you are going through treatment and do not feel well enough to attend the appointment, I urge you to listen to your body and get in touch so that we can rearrange.

Whilst I can provide an oncology massage across both of my treatment rooms, you may find that my Treatment Room at home, on a Tuesday and Friday is more private, relaxing, quiet and potentially appropriate. However, you are welcome on any day at either location. If you are unable to travel, and you would like me to visit you at your home, in hospital or in a hospice, please get in touch via phone or email to arrange this.
