Ellie Guest Massage Therapy
Welcome to Ellie Guest Massage Therapy. I provide myofascial release and massage in Weston Super Mare. My aim is to reduce pain and discomfort in your body, helping you feel better and getting your body moving with therapeutic treatments tailored exactly to your needs. I work with men and women who:
- Need pain relief from both chronic and acute physical discomfort e.g. lower back pain, stiff neck, shoulder pain
- Have chronic pain conditions which affect the way you live your life e.g. fibromyalgia, pain after surgery, pelvic pain syndrome
- Are active and use their muscles in a habitual way e.g. runners, cyclists, walkers, yogis
As a therapist I focus on you as an individual and take your physical, emotional and mental needs into account each time you come to see me. I work with you to build a plan that’s specific to you and that is enjoyable, as well as therapeutic.
I offer myofascial release treatments. Myofascial release (MFR) is a form of bodywork, a therapeutic approach, that has evolved with increased understanding of the body. The principles of the techniques are rooted in fluid dynamics which enable a change in the state of fascia. Essentially, I apply sustained pressure for a period of time (about five minutes) and follow the changes in the tissue, this means lines of tension in the fascia are eliminated which reduces pain and discomfort.
MFR treats the body as a whole 3D structure rather than focussing on areas in isolation. Rather than treating for a particular symptom I look at the body as a whole to create total body balance and function. As an example: if you have a repetitive shoulder injury that doesn’t respond to treatment such as massage or physiotherapy MFR would seek to bring other areas of the body into balance.
As a therapist I focus on you as an individual and take your physical, emotional and mental needs into account each time you come to see me. I work with you to build a plan that’s specific to you and that is enjoyable, as well as therapuetic. The journey that brought me to massage means that I’m passionate about sharing the wide and varied benefits of massage to help you be able to live your life to the full.
I specialise in deep tissue massage for the relief of chronic pain and pain management. With all massages I aim to bring deep relaxation and a feeling of wellbeing. I work in a skillful and sensitive way, taking the whole person into consideration whilst easing painful muscles and allowing the body and mind to relax.
I’m fully qualified, insured and registered with the Massage Training Institute and Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.
