My bodywork treatments use a combination of deep tissue techniques (myofascial release), trigger point therapy, assisted stretching and Swedish massage. To get the most out of your massage a brief consultation will take place before the massage and some strengthen and stretch ideas can be given at the end to continue the good work.

Pregnancy, childbirth and then breastfeeding had left me with a great deal of pain and tension in my neck, shoulders and arms. The massage combined a mixture of deep tissue and stretching. After each massage the pain and tension was reduced but what also helped was the individual techniques Ellie showed me to use in between our sessions. Melanie Thomson, Mussleburgh
Ellie is by far one of the best masseurs I have ever used (and I've had a few) she has a magic touch and a real knack for finding the lumps and bumps and melting them away. Nina Ferrier, Edinburgh
I was lucky enough to catch Ellie on one of her recent visits to Edinburgh. She got friendly with my QL muscles - using some focused stretching techniques to ease my lower back pain thus making me feel all comfy in my body once again. Janet McInnes, Forest Yoga
