Sarah Mathieson - Massage & Reflexology
I believe strongly in the therapeutic value of massage and its importance in maintaining health and wellbeing.
I have worked in the area of holistic massage therapy for the past 5 years gaining vast experience working in holistic areas.
I have diplomas in therapies such as Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Indian head massage, Thai Yoga massage, Lomi lomi Hawaiian massage, Swedish massage, Sports massage, soft tissue release and Pre and post-Event massage.
I will soon have completed a course in Neuromuscular physical therapy at NTC Dublin and hope to qualify in October 2021 as an NMPT, specialising in the treatment of soft tissue pain and injury.
In my sessions I use a variety of therapies and techniques based on the client’s needs. Each treatment will be tailored to the individual to achieve the desired result.
Reflexology is a therapy that uses the feet as a map or mirror of the whole body. A non-invasive therapy that addresses reflex points in the feet to stimulate, treat and balance all the systems in the body. A very relaxing and healing treatment.

Lomi lomi Hawaiian massage therapy (back / Full body)
Lomi lomi temple-style massage is truly healing on a deeper level. This traditional Hawaiian massage is about awakening the wisdom and connection within yourself and living a life of good health and happiness. This is a full body treatment that works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, allowing the recipient to relax and give in to the nurturing experience.
Lomi lomi works with the belief that memories are not just stored in the mind, but also in every cell of the human body. The long, continuous strokes of the massage are designed to help the body let go of its old behaviors and patterns, which can cause as much stresses as muscle tension.

Post-Event massage including soft tissue release
Aims at recovery treatment after exercise and has been shown to reduce Delayed Onset muscle soreness experienced after exercise and/or competition. Particularly important for those who strive to maintain a strong sports career. This massage treatment is tailored to the client’s specific areas of concern or generally on the back, legs and arms. Tight muscles will compromise the joints they surround. Soft tissue release is an effective technique which helps to release tension and helps to ‘unstick’ the soft tissues. Suitable for anyone with tight muscles.
