How much does it cost?
Depends what needs to be done. If it is just a relaxation massage for your back and shoulders then it is $40(approximately half an hour) For a full body relaxation massage, an hour long back massage or therapeutic work it is $60 (approximately 1 hour). I usually always follow therapeutic work with some gentle relaxation work.
The free consultation process is not included in this time.
What do I wear for a massage?
Most clients just strip down to their undergarments for the massage and use the towels provided for modesty. During the massage you are draped with towels so that only the area I'm working on is uncovered. If you don't feel comfortable with this then I will work with you to find a solution. With some therapeutic work it is possible to do it fully clothed.
How soon can I expect to see results?
It depends on the individual and what type of work is needed. Some people see results after the first visit and find they don't need to come back. Others it takes two or three visits to notice a big improvement. If you haven't noticed an improvement tho after a couple of visits then massage might not be the best treatment plan for you, and we can discuss other professionals who might be able to help
What types of treatments do you offer?
I can provide the following types of massage. Swedish massage which is a gentle relaxation massage, trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques, myofascia release techniques, stretching. I also am qualified in Reiki When you come for your consultation we will discuss the best treatment plan and techniques for you.
Do you offer discounts?
If you require on going treatment we can discuss a payment plan that fits into your lifestyle to make it as affordable as possible for you. I also offer discounts and special offers for my regular clients
What qualifications do you hold?
My training is all NZQA certified. I hold my Certificate in Relaxation Massage and also a Diploma in Therapeutic Massage. I am trained in Reiki. I believe learning never ends so are always on the look out for new training opportunities so I can provide the best possible service and treatment to you.
How often should I receive massage?
I personally recommend massage at least once a month. If the body is maintained it runs more efficiently, a bit like your car if it receives regular services. Everyone is different though and it depends on the individual and their circumstances. We can discuss this when you come for your first session
What my clients have to say
What my clients have to say
Was very skeptical about the therapeutic side but was blown away with the difference it has made to my flexibility and ease of movement
After year's of being in pain due to Tendonitis throughout my whole body I came to see Joanne. I've tried lots of different things over the years osteopaths, physiotherapists, chiropractors with little improvement being noticed.
Joanne started with very gentle bodywork because my body was so sore. In a short space of time I started to notice improvements as the work she did started to take effect.
I look forward to more positive changes under the magic fingers of Joanne, a true highlight of my week
Having been to my osteopath the other week for lower back pain I was still very sore the next week, so decided to give Joanne a call and she fitted me in straight away. I can now bend over and touch my toes again as she stretched all the muscles in the back and hips that were causing pain. I spend a lot of time on a horse training for endurance and I will now be coming to see her on a regular basis as I can now get the same relief that I get for my horses.
I have been going to Joanne for quite sometime now and find Joanne's massages to be truly relaxing, She helps ease my tired muscles and Joanne is very down to earth, yet very professional in the way she does her massages. I have become more than just another client to Joanne, We have become good friends. I would recommend Joanne to anybody.
Jo does a wonderful job of making us feel relaxed and focuses on the parts that we need massaged. she is very professional and has good knowledge of different body parts and ways to massage. recommend to all.Sarah and AJ
