Frequently Asked Questions
If you have any more questions please contact us and we will help all we can. My family has created a short video to answer many common questions about your first visit.
Is massage right for me?
All people are different and all injuries even more so, the best way is to call or contact us for advice. Soft tissue injuries are especially responsive to massage and most people will feel the benefits of a good quality treatment performed by a professional. However massage is not a magical panacea for all injuries and ailments. I pride myself on honesty, integrity and professionalism. We will not book you in for a treatment unless we truly believe we can help.
What type of massage is right for me?
The benefits of both approaches to massage are similar and sometimes it will be down to what you prefer. Read the description of each type and decide which feels right for you. Contact us and we will talk you through all of the simillarities and differences.
I do not play sport so would a Sports Massage benefit me?
YES! Slightly blunt but true. The techniques we use are designed to help the body to function optimally and any body will benefit from that.
How would I book a massage?
You can either call, e-mail or use the website contact page. I will get back to you at any time convenient to you. We will discuss how I can help and arrange an appointment that will fit in with your schedule.
Where would it take place?
I am now working from my new clinic at my home in Wolstanton, Newcastle under Lyme, North Staffordshire. Parking is available in front of the gate or busses stop just 50 metres away at Morris Square. There are plenty of shops and cafés near by to extend your visit.
What would happen on the first session?
Your first session is the most important session for all concerned. I will aim to help you to relax and get the most out of the session. The start will be taking a history, finding out all about you and how we can help. The treatment would then begin. It will be specific to you and the benefits you wish for.
How can I check I am being treated by a good massage practitioner?
When having a Sports Massage, always ask if your Practitioner is a member of the Sports Massage Association. All members will have a current membership card, certificate and insurance document. Beth Lloyd is a Level 4 member of the Sports Massage Association.
For NO HANDS treatments all practitioners are trained and licensed by Gerry Pyves and are always happy and willing to show you evidence of this. Beth Lloyd is a qualified No Hands Practitioner.
