I just wanted to let you know that I've been totally pain free apart from when doing heavy lifting so the massage has made an enormous difference! I finally had my NHS pelvis physio appointment today and she felt that huge improvements had been made with the scar as a result of the massage.

Just to let you know that I don't know what you did on Thursday but it
worked!! On Friday I could get out of bed and up and down stairs, etc all
with minimal pain. I've not had on my support bandage since then and my
pelvis feels ok. So, either you have or miracle hands and hit the spot or baby
moved during massage or .... I've no idea, who cares, I can move easier!!!!!
I had pregnancy massage with Orla in each trimester of my pregnancy
and each time I came away feeling relaxed and refreshed. I especially felt the
benefit in the last trimester where Orla's treatment helped ease the stiffness
I had been suffering in my lower back. Orla has a warm and friendly demeanour
and this came across in all communication. She was easy to talk to and I found
myself discussing my birth plans etc with ease.Orla ensured that I felt nurtured
during this special time and I would recommend any pregnant friends to have regular
treatments with Orla throughout their pregnancy.
I'm so glad my sister passed on your info as I probably wouldn't have thought
of booking a massage otherwise. Before we started the sessions I hadn't realised
that they would be so comprehensive, with the update bit at the beginning and
a very holistic approach, so that definitely exceeded my expectations, feeling
that the entire pregnancy was being looked after, not just the aches & pains & joints.
I think I had expected it to be focusing purely on the physical.
I really enjoyed the pregnancy and post natal massage with Orla and I liked how
she tailored the sessions to my individual needs. The sessions were very relaxing
and particularly as I have an older child I enjoyed the time focusing on this
pregnancy. Orla's service exceeded my expectations as it was not just a massage
but also discussion and suggestions for my general wellbeing during the pregnancy.
Orla always explained clearly at the start what would be involved in each session
and I found the demonstrations of exercises/ stretches & positions for labour
clear and very useful. Being shown on a one-to-one basis rather than out a book
or in a class gave me more confidence to do them myself!
Dear Orla, I wish to convey how much I enjoy my treatments of massage.
Your clinic is first class and very private, you are also very professional
in your work. The massage helped me sleep better and eased my aching shoulder
I have been receiving therapeutic massage from Orla for the past 6 months. The
main reason for my treatment is to help with my arthritis. Before the treatments
I had low energy, found it difficult to sleep, stressed and very sore arthritic
joint pains. During and after the treatments I feel very relaxed, rested
and my joint pain becomes much more manageable. Orla adjusts the massage to suit
my needs at the time due to my arthritis. Orla is always willing to discuss
my health condition and has given me after care advice. Orla has taken
time to research my condition and provided additional information and leaflets
to help me. The clinic and customer care provided is professional and friendly. Overall
my treatment with Orla has exceeded my expectations and I would thoroughly recommend
I found Orla had a very friendly, caring and professional manner with
a passion for her therapy. I really enjoy my pregnancy massages and felt relaxed
and supported during the treatments. I enjoyed the mixture of deep and
more gentle pressures. I sleep well the evenings of the massage and the next
day feel more energised and calm with less muscle tension and aches.
The massages I had were very relaxing and eased all my aches and
pains which left me feeling very relaxed and had a great night's sleep, the only
problem I had was that I didn't discover Orla earlier on in my pregnancy as I
would have been going a lot sooner! I would highly recommend Orla, she is
very friendly and professional and pregnant ladies deserve a bit of pampering.
The aches, pains, stresses and strains of pregnancy melted away after
a preganancy massage treatment with Orla. Her warmth and professionalism
always made me feel that my baby and I were in good hands. Would highly
I had a 60 min therapeutic massage voucher given to me as a gift from
my son for Christmas. I had a wonderful full body session with work on my back,
arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck and shoulders and it was the best massage I
have ever had. I just closed my eyes and completely relaxed. Thank you very much
I have been to see Orla twice, the first time I was 28 weeks pregnant
and the second at 36 weeks. I was suffering pain in my pelvis and the first massage
really helped ease this. The second massage was more of a pamper. Orla is an
expert at finding and easing all those pregnancy pains.?
I find Orla to be very professional, very friendly and helpful. Her therapy
has been very useful for easing my back and neck pain. Orla pinpoints the muscles
that are tense. The atmosphere is very relaxing. I find her follow up to the
treatment via email very useful and her suggestions for further help have been
greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
I started having massage sessions with Orla as I was suffering from shoulder and neck pain due to my typing job. It helped immensely. Orla creates a very relaxed, informal atmosphere and I was able to relax and unwind easily. Orla took time to have an in-depth consultation with me at my initial appointment, and at each one thereafter we always had a chat first to see what I wanted to get out of the session, which I found very helpful as I could say whether I had any specific problem areas or if it was just purely relaxation I wanted. I would recommend Orla to anyone as she is a highly professional, caring massage therapist who provides a fantastic service!
After weeks of discomfort with pregnancy related back pain, my first visit to Orla was amazing. Orla has a very calming effect and the massage was absolutely out of this world, so much so, I visit regularly and look forward to my visits and the positive impact they have on me. I have explored different options to ease my pregnancy and this has been the best find which I would highly recommend to anyone.
My husband booked me a massage for my birthday to help me de-stress.
It was the best birthday present I received. I found it very relaxing and it
really helped to ease the aches pains I was experiencing. The service was excellent
and I liked that Orla took the time to contact me the next day to check everything
was ok. I would definitely recommend her service.
I have recommended Orla to all the pregnant women I know. Her
massage technique is specially tailored for pregnancy, making you feel safe and
relaxed. Orla also works in depth with your muscles, specially those areas that
need extra support and care during pregnancy. I always feel revitalised when
I finish the session. Orla also gives you good tips and advice for pregnancy
