Claire Hay, DipSM, DipCA, SMTO
Claire is a registered massage therapist and has worked at Balanced since 2011.
After qualifying in Swedish massage and then clinical aromatherapy, she has continued regular training in order to enhance her practice. This includes training with Jing Institute of Advanced Massage, which has provided her with clinical techniques that she regularly uses with clients who are dealing with muscular pain. These techniques include myofascial release, trigger point therapy and stretching (passive, MET). Massage treatments are adapted for the pregnant client to help with the physical and emotional changes that they are experiencing.
Having completed ‘Massage for people living with cancer’ with the Iris Cancer Partnership, she is currently participating in their Level I programme.
In her treatments she uses her own handmade oil blends and also makes face oils to order for clients to use at home. All blends have a high organic content.
Whether the client is dealing with stress, aches and pains or simply looking for relaxation, Claire uses a range of massage techniques and her knowledge to provide a massage treatment tailored to the clients’ needs.
Therapies: Swedish massage, clinical aromatherapy, Indian head massage, pregnancy massage, deep tissue & bodywork and cancer care massage
