As a professional dancer, I’ve always been interested in how the body works,
I was the one massaging the other students who were injured or tight during dance training and found that I enjoyed helping people in this way.
Following a 4 year career in performance, I decided to add a string to my bow and pursue a career in massage therapy as it compliments my career in the performing arts, and allows me to be more flexible with my rehearsals and performances etc.
I qualified as a YMCA Level 3 Sports Massage &Swedish Massage Therapist in early 2018 and have since furthered my qualifications to include Hot Stone Massage Therapy.
I'm passionate about helping both female & male clients through my massage, whether it be to aid in their recovery of an ongoing injury (or trauma injury) prepare them for a special event or simply help them to relax and recuperate.
I have a studio space at my home which I regularly work from and also consider most home visits (taking travel distance into account)
For relaxation, stress relief and general well being, a Swedish Massage is a fantastic option! Thought of as an occasional, luxury pamper to some, an intermittent treat for others, or even a neccessary, regular part of a persons health & wellness routine, a Swedish Massage has many benefits to the body and mind and is the most common type of massage therapy. Working primarily on the top most layers of the muscles, it involves soft, long, kneading strokes, with light, rhythmic, tap tapping movements combined with gentle movement of the joints and tendons. By relieving muscle tension, this traditional art of swedish massage therapy can be both relaxing and energizing, even assisting in rehabilitation and helping to recover from injury. Whatever your age, physical status, body type or lifestyle, a swedish massage will be a fabulous service for your mind and body any time of the day or night.
As per above (see ½ Sports & ½ Other) a Swedish massage can be combined with another massage service to make a total of an hour.
This would be;
Either the first half an hour or second half an hour (depending on your preference), swedish massage and either the first half an hour (or 45 minutes) or second half an hour (or 45 minutes) of sports/deep tissue or another relaxing service, either;
A therapeutic and unique way to unwind and de-stress, a hot stone massage ticks all the relaxation boxes when it comes to well being. As well as being exteremely enjoyable as a pamper, hot stikne therapy has many health benefits including increased sleep, relief from tension & anxiety and promoting better circulation and blood flow. Please don't be deterred by the term 'Hot' as is the case wqith all treatments that involves the body, each individual is different, with varying degrees of tolerance to heat etc. and thus the stones can be heated or cooled to your chosen preference temperature no problem! Some people appreciate very hot stones straight from the heater to really melt away the tension and others prefer a much milder, warm stone to gently relieve their muscles, the choice is truly yours. If you've alway wondered what it's like to have this type of massage therapy, you should indeed try just once and see if it's suits you, I promise you won't regret it! Hot Stones might just become your go to massage service as is the case for many of my clients!

For any of the massage services, you should wear loose clothing (please always wear underwear) and try to drink plenty of water in the hour or so preceeding the appointment. If it's your first time, then please arrive at least 1o minutes before your scheduled appointment to allow time to fill out a short evaluation form. I always work in a heat contolled environment to allow for the muscles to warm properly.
THE THERAPY: After an initial, brief consultation, firstly, I'll warm the muscles with a soft to medium rubbing action, then continue to knead the local area and 'work into' the muscle (your chosen service appropriate) deeper and deeper using fingers, knuckles, hands, forearms and •elbows (•during a deep tissue massage to reach the deepest layers of muscle tissue) tendons & fascia, (which is the connective tissue all around the muscles), releasing toxins, removing knots and severe muscle tension. You will akways have the opportunity to converse with me throughout the service to offer feedback on the pressure so I can adjust accordingly ensuring you are comfortable with the treatment at all times!
My husband & I had a massage each in the comfort of our own home, it was simply amazing! Leading the busy lives we do, the convenience of a mobile masseuse is welcomed and the fact that Aaron is so professional, polite and personable made it all the better! Certainly recommened and we will be in touch again soon.
Aaron went to town on my body. Dancers, gym junkies or sports people, if you want a good deep tissue massage, hit him up, he is the ONE!!! Beyond reasonable prices too! - @lukasmcfarlane_
Aaron is an absolute gentleman, very professional and knowledgable, and to top it off a pleasure to be around and a top bloke. I would highly recommend his massage business.
DANCERS - get yourselves down to BASE dance studios & get booked in for an AWL Massage. Aaron knows his stuff, after my half sports & half swedish massage, I've never felt so revived! It'a 5 stars from me.
Pay Aaron a visit! Good deep tissue massage although my IT band wasn't thanking me at the time, it was so much better afterwards. Nice and local, so very convenient and priced very competitively for an hours treatment.
My massage from Aaron was amazing! Not too rough or uncomfortable, and very relaxing! Would definitely recommend AWL Massage to anyone in or around Chingford looking for a relaxing session to unwindand iron out the creases.
