Sports, Remedial and Deep Tissue Massage. Pregnancy Massage
With a BTEC 4 Diploma in Sports and Remedial Massage, and as a member of the Institute of Sports and Remedial Massage, Lisa trained at the London School of Sports Massage. After working for a mobile sports massage company on the ski slopes of Val d’Isere in the French Alps for a number of seasons, she has been running her own successful practice in the nearby market town of Diss for the last four years.
Offering sports, remedial and deep tissue massage Lisa helps to treat and relieve muscular aches and tension that affect your life, be it your career, your sport or just your ability to pick up the kids/ push the lawnmower/ get out of bed.
The benefits of massage, both physical and physiological, are well documented, but as Lisa explains; “Our bodies are put under immense amounts of pressure by modern life (exercise, driving, computer work) and consequently long-standing muscular tensions and postural imbalances develop. Imbalances put strain on the muscular and skeletal structures within the body, which materialise as tensions, stiffness, aches and pains. Depending on the level of strain, the tension and pain can vary from the acute to the dull, nagging variety. Either way, it is important to look after your body and address any imbalances so that your body is able to function at its optimum, everyday.”
As director of The Space, it was Lisa’s dream to expand her practice that lead to the search for a new space: “This is the next step really, running my own centre in the heart of a village community. And I hope that The Space will in turn add to this community, both literally and figuratively. Ultimately I want people to connect with The Space and use it to its best advantage. I see it as being a place where anybody and everybody is welcome, and while I have plenty of ideas as to the range of services The Space might offer, I am also open to new things presenting themselves. I think that allows The Space to grow organically and envelop the community it exists within as well as the community it brings with it.”
