Emma is often found out at sea zipping around on the forth, or enjoying some “me time” swimming or Pilates.
I saw Emma and even from my first session of MLD I felt looser, and deflated if that makes sense. We could literally feel the fluid draining as Emma massaged my lymph nodes to encourage drainage.
I was suffering from tired legs which made it difficult to complete a round of golf so I decided to give massage therapy a try. Emma uses a combination of massage, lymphatic drainage and acupuncture on my legs and the results are amazing. I now manage four or five rounds weekly and no longer feel exhausted after a round.
Having been a regular for massage with Balanced at the Royal Burgess for some 2 years now my therapist, Emma, has educated and helped me understand the importance of regular 'care & maintenance' of muscles and ligaments. It has greatly assisted me in my golfing and skiing activities.
