Jo Stoller ITEC DIP
I specialise in deep tissue remedial massage, working slowly and targeting key areas to reduce tension and relieve pain. My focus is to lengthen muscle tissue that has become shortened, tightened and restricted from overuse either through physical training or general day-to-day stress. Each session is tailored to your individual needs whether it’s remedial, recovery or restorative, to ensure you get maximum benefit from the treatment.

Indian Head Massage
This is a calming and sensory treatment, it helps to quieten the mind and relieve pressure that can build up in the head, neck and shoulders. It provides relief of congestion in the sinuses and any tension we may hold in our jaw. Whilst feeling lighter in our upper body, it can also help that mental fog to dissipate and improve our clarity of thought.
Holistic Deep Tissue
Working at a slow pace allows release at a deeper level. This does not mean the treatment is more painful. The aim is to find key areas and work with an effective pressure to release and soften tension.
Massage promotes recovery which is key to any intensive training schedule to prevent injury and improve performance. By working deeply on muscle and connective tissue to release tension and increase blood flow, it brings nutrients to the affected area and promotes healing.
Life can be busy and sometimes frantic. Massage has psychological benefits giving you a chance to relax and unwind, this helps to reduce stress, restore balance and promotes a sense of well-being, using Aveda’s Stress-Fix aromatic blend, infused with organic lavender and clary sage.
