What would you like to know?
What kind of massage shall I book?
If you are not sure which type of massage to book, we recommend choosing 'health massage'. This is a broad term to encompass a range of techniques tailored to you based on your consultation in the session.
What can I expect?
We are two well experienced and highly qualified professionals who have a shared aim to improve health and wellbeing in this town and further afield.
The main base is Creuynni Complementary Healthcare home clinic on the outskirts of the town centre. It is cosy, down to earth, and homely. At times, we also work from Hawarden Wellness Centre, a beautiful health centre, a variety of events nationwide and we do offer some mobile sessions, in the comfort of your own home.
Each session begins with a consultation to find out what your needs are and what you are looking for in a treatment. This can include posture analysis or muscle tests to identify which parts of the body may be affected, and simply some questions to learn about your health history or anything else that may affect the massage. Please just answer what you feel comfortable answering, though medical history is important to check for contraindications to massage.
Each session is individual, and everyone is individual, so during the treatment, you are asked to feedback if you need less or more pressure, so that we can adjust this if needed to make sure the treatment is the best it can be for you.
Post-treatment, for the health-based massages some exercises may be suggested to help maintain the benefits of massage between sessions.
What do I need to wear?
This is up to you and your comfort level. Most do choose to just go down to suitable underwear for ease of working with the muscles, fascia and lymphatic system. You will be covered by a towel or blanket.
Can you tell me a bit more about the practitioners?
Of course! Massage Wrexham is a family business, Brian and Katherine
are partners in life and partners in providing support for health self-management through massage and other complementary healthcare practices. Both have been working offering massage since 2013, coming together to found and work as Massage Wrexham in 2017.
Brian comes from Catalonia! He brings with him the excellent Quiromassage from the Academy de Quiros as well as his qualifications in Deep Tissue, Sports Massage and Reflexology from this academy. He came to Wrexham to improve his English for 5 weeks, fell in love with Katherine, and is still here over 5 years later! More recently, Brian decided to expand again on this excellent skillset and is now in his third year at Wrexham Glyndwr University studying for a degree in BSc Physiotherapy.
Katherine grew up in Wrexham. After an operation, she experienced chronic neurological pain and intermittent paralysis and had to turn to complementary therapies to improve her health. This included training with the Four Winds Society and with Wrexham Glyndwr University. Katherine gained a BSc First Class Honours in Complementary Therapies at Wrexham Glyndwr University and recently gained MSc Distinction in Psychology. Katherine specialises in Manual Lymphatic Drainage and other health-based massages alongside teaching meditation and other innerwork therapies with Creuynni Complementary Healthcare.
Both are motivated by benefiting the health and wellbeing of people in Wrexham and wider afield.
Brian is insured by the ABT, Katherine by Balens, and both work to uphold high professional and ethical standards in their work. And both come with excellent reviews! They can be seen on Google on Facebook by those that have left reviews (Thank you to everyone that takes time to do so!)
Is there parking?
Yes, there is on-street parking and usually, you can park in front of the building. You can park anywhere on Salisbury Close up to the point to the start of the garages where it changes to residential parking only. In the unlikely event that there are no parking spaces in the close, there is a small amount of parking opposite the Co-op, and LIDL car park just around the corner.
What are the rules in relation to COVID?
It is best to arrive on time for appointments as there is a heavy cleaning schedule (even more than before) between clients that includes steam cleaning the floors between clients, cleaning door handles etc which adds extra time.
It is advisable to wear a mask where you can. We recommend reusable, washable high protection masks such as Cambridge Masks for comfort, safety and environmental reasons. The practitioner(s) wear these a high-level N99 mask that are available from Cambridge masks for your protection.
Bathroom facilities are not available at this time due to this, unless there is an urgent need.
Are you inclusive?
Absolutely. LGBT+, all ethnic backgrounds, ND, NT, those with learning differences, those with disabilities/differently-abled, naturists, all genders respected, appreciated and welcomed here. All our products used are nut-free and suitable for vegans, so are suitable for vegetarians, vegans and omnivores alike :)
Do you do extras/erotic massage?
To quote Shakespeare 'Nay, nay and thrice nay'. Really. We do try to make it obvious that we do not, but still we do get asked this and not everyone takes no for an answer straight away. So to confirm, we do not do this type of massage. At all. Not even for one thousand pounds. We reserve the right to refuse treatment to anyone acting without respect of this. There are other kinds of professionals in that field that do that type of massage, and all respect to them, we leave that to them. A simple internet search will find those that do. Our massage is completely different. The massage that we do here is health and wellbeing based such as deep tissue massage, sports massage, therapeutic massage, quiromassage, lymphatic drainage, reflexology and more. We are health massage practitioners. You would not ask your physiotherapist or other rehabilitation therapist this question, so please do not ask us this. Thank you!
