  • Pregnancy Massage | Palmers Green, London | Lorna Hetherington Massage

    Pregnancy & Post-natal Massage Nurture yourself & your bump Pregnancy is a magical time but the exciting changes in your body can also leave you in discomfort. The shifting centre of gravity as your bump grows can lead to lower back pain, sciatica, hip pain, and shoulder pain, amongst other areas. Water retention as your pregnancy progresses can also result in swollen legs, ankles and feet. As a new mum, you may also be suffering from sore neck and shoulders as a result of breastfeeding or just gazing adoringly at your little one, and hand and wrist issues are also common with lifting an ever increasing weight continuously every day. I am a mum of two, so I understand the effects pregnancy can have on you and the importance of looking after yourself physically. I perform pregnancy massage with you lying on your side, with plenty of pillows to support you and ensure your comfort. Due to the level of the hormone relaxin in the body, a pregnancy massage isn't quite as deep as a remedial massage, but you will be left feeling soothed and relieved of tension and aches. I can incorporate manual lymphatic drainage massage into the treatment if you are suffering from puffy legs. ​ You can also treat a friend or family member to a pregnancy massage by buying a gift voucher for them. ​ Get in Touch Local pregnancy & post-natal services

  • Lymphatic Drainage Massage | N13 London | Lorna Hetherington Massage

    Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLD) Reduce swelling and minimise puffiness Your lymphatic system can often be compromised by infection, surgical procedures and pregnancy. This can result in puffy legs, ankles and feet or arms and hands. You may also find yourself feeling sluggish or prone to picking up colds and other illnesses. Lymphatic Drainage Massage or Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) uses very light, rhythmical strokes working towards the lymph nodes to improve the circulation of lymph within the body and assist in the removal of toxins and waste products, thereby boosting your immune system and general wellbeing. It can also significantly reduce swelling and oedema following an operation, such as a knee or hip replacement or cosmetic surgery such as liposuction. I have been trained in manual lymphatic drainage massage and taping since 2011 and have also completed Oncology massage training for people living with cancer or the effects of cancer treatment such as lymphoedema.

  • Medical Acupuncture | Palmers Green, London | Lorna Hetherington Massage

    Medical Acupuncture Get to the heart of the tension Medical acupuncture, also known as dry needling, uses the principles of acupuncture and trigger point therapy to relieve long-standing knotted muscles. I find that these very specific techniques work brilliantly alongside massage and many of my clients are amazed by how quick and effective the results are, and that often they don't even feel the needles after they are inserted. I use medical acupuncture as and when I feel it is appropriate, but it can have particularly good results in dealing with headaches, neck and shoulder pain and issues with piriformis/gluteals, calf tightness and achilles problems.

  • About Sports Massage Therapist | London N21 | Lorna Hetherington Massage

    About Me I believe what sets me apart from other therapists is my understanding of sporting injuries and medical conditions and how best to aid rehabilitation from these. This has been gained by more than 18 years working and training alongside experienced physiotherapists at Sprint Physiotherapy , a highly regarded clinic in Kensington, treating many clients pre/post operatively and in conjunction with their physiotherapy treatment. Whilst I take on board latest research and evidence and apply it in my approach, I am also an intuitive therapist and 'listen to what my fingers tell me' to help ease pain and restriction in the body. I find the human body fascinating and get tremendous satisfaction from helping my clients feel better. ​ I originally qualified with my diploma at the renowned London School of Sports Massage (LSSM) in 2006 and undertake additional postgraduate courses every year to further my training and deepen my knowledge of the human body. I was also fortunate enough to be selected to provide pre/post event massage in the Polyclinic at London 2012 Paralympics. An amazing experience that exposed me to athletes from all over the world in events from judo to wheelchair basketball, weightlifting to long jump. Prior to retraining as a massage therapist I worked in the stressful world of marketing and advertising, so fully understand the physical and mental pressures of being deskbound for many hours every day. ​ I work from my home massage studio in Palmers Green, N13 covering the local areas of Winchmore Hill, Grange Park, N21, Southgate, Oakwood, N14, Bounds Green and Enfield, as well as offering home visits in these areas. I am fully insured and a member of the Institute of Sports & Remedial Massage . My philosophy Massage is not a luxury, it is essential to maintain your mental & physical well-being.

  • Covid-19 protocols | Website

    Covid-19 Protocols I have taken every effort to ensure my business is as Covid-secure as possible. ​ I allow longer between appointments to clean all surfaces touched by the previous client and to ventilate the treatment room. Face masks are currently no longer required but may be reintroduced if Covid infection rates increase or during winter flu season. Of course, should you prefer to wear a mask or request that I wear one (particularly in the case of immuno-suppressed clients) please feel free to do so. ​ I do ask that if you have any form of cold/flu virus that you postpone your appointment until you are feeling better. Massage treatment when you have a cold/flu can make you feel worse and prolong your recovery and also increases the risk of infecting others. ​ If you are due to have a Covid or flu vaccination, please allow 48 hours after your vaccination before coming for treatment in case you experience any side effects. If you require any further information about my Covid protocols please feel free to contact me.

  • Sports & Remedial Massage | N13 London | Lorna Hetherington Massage

    Sports & Remedial Massage Ease your muscles I originally trained in sports and remedial massage, but I am essentially a soft tissue therapist dealing with issues related to the muscles, tendons and fascia within the body. I use a variety of techniques, including myofascial release, soft tissue release, muscle energy technique, positional release technique and trigger point release, alongside more traditional effleurage and stretches to relieve tension in muscles and promote freedom of movement. I may also use medical acupuncture and spinal mobilisation or manipulation if required to achieve the best result. ​ If your aches and pains are from poor posture, sitting at a desk all day, or just getting older and dealing with other health issues, then a regular massage will ease the niggling pains and help you move more comfortably. It is also hugely beneficial after surgery and I have many years of experience dealing with reducing swelling and improving range of motion post-operatively for knee replacements and ligament repairs such as ACL/MCL reconstructions, hip replacements, shoulder surgeries (rotator cuff repairs, shoulder replacement) and back operations. ​ For those who play sport regularly or are training for an event, a sports massage can help minimise injuries, improve your recovery times and help keep you in optimum condition. I have successfully treated many marathon runners, triathletes, cyclists, golfers, tennis players and footballers, but also have experience of other sports such as shooting, horse-riding, climbing and ballet. I was also selected to provide massage to international athletes at the London 2012 Paralympics and have provided pre/post event massage at both the British Triathlon and the London Bike Ride. ​ Many of my clients see me for specific issues; anything from neck pain to tight hamstrings or shoulder problems, but I will often treat other related areas as well. The body is an integrated whole and everything is ultimately connected, so releasing restrictions in another area can have surprising effects on the main problem. ​ I am a highly skilled soft tissue therapist and adjust pressure to the requirements and preference of each client. I incorporate breath work to help you relax during treatment and achieve the best results possible. See my reviews page for a selection of testimonials from my clients or to see my Google reviews.

  • Spinal Mobilisation & Manipulation | N13, London | Lorna Hetherington Massage

    Spinal Mobilisation & Manipulation I am trained in the osteopathic technique of mobilisation and manipulation of the spinal vertebrae to relieve stiffness and tension. Often you may feel like your back has 'locked' and your movement can be severely limited. I use gentle mobilisation or firmer manipulation of the joints in the back, in conjunction with soft tissue work, to help restore your range of motion and ease the pain you may be feeling in relation to spinal or joint stiffness.
