Massage Therapist Hannah has been with The Lymington Chiropractic Clinic since 2020 and offers Sports Injury, Deep Tissue and Oncology Massage, and Reiki.
Massage is aimed at helping to treat body stress or pain, but can be extremely effective in helping to de-stress, relax and de-clutter the mind too. By manipulating soft tissues in the body, massage therapists use a variety of skills and techniques to treat either specific problem areas or the whole
A trained Sports Massage Therapist since 2016, Hannah has been very active from an early age. Her most recent passion is CrossFit and she regularly trains and competes. She also loves attending courses and seminars, so she can keep abreast of how the body works and how various muscle groups work in unison. Hannah holds a Level 4 Active IQ Diploma for Sports Massage and is trained in Cupping and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM ), which are great additions to a massage. Many patients have enjoyed the benefits, reducing stagnant blood, increasing blood flow and helping injuries heel quicker.
Another course Hannah completed and found very interesting was Oncology Massage. After passing her Cancer Awareness Level 1 and Advanced Cancer Awareness courses she went on to learn how to massage people with cancer. Oncology massage is a very gentle, full body massage with the aim to relax, unwind and help ease discomfort. The massage can be adapted to suit the individual.
The most recent course Hannah has completed is Reiki. Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing and involves placing her hands on or just above a persons body to help improve energy flow and find any potential blockages. Reiki is a non-invasive form of natural healing. The benefits of Reiki include, improved mood, reduced stress and anxiety and overall well-being. Hannah found the course fascinating and it has made a big impact on her own life.
