Mandy Elliott Deep Tissue Massage Therapist AKA The Soft Tissue Detective.
Mandy's approach to massage is focused on aches and pains which limit or prevent people of any age from participating in, or fully
enjoying their normal daily activities. Her aim is to discover the cause of discomfort and do what she can to remove it, or provide
information and assistance in making it easier to live with. Even if there is a clear diagnosis for where you are now, there may be
underlying chances for beneficial change. The human body is enormously adaptable and it is often more responsive to subtle, gentle
techniques than those applied with force; this is the way that Mandy prefers to work.
Mandy started her anatomy journey with a level 5 diploma in sports injury and massage.For more than ten years since then, Mandy has consistently exceeded the annual industry requirement for continued training and amassed an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, bio-mechanics, functional movement, neuro-muscular connections and a catalogue of advanced massage and rehabilitation techniques.
Mandy is realistic and approachable and adapts her work to suit the individual, including children from birth-18 years with disabilities and special needs.
Appointments are available with Mandy at Elixir on Tuesday, Thursday and most Saturdays.
