My Methodology

To clarify I undertake a range of techniques to get the result , hard massages for the whole treatment may feel beneficial initially but will be counterproductive and will result in discomfort for a few days. A point to consider toxins will be moved through the body during treatment which will result in different discomfort levels i.e. high levels of stress may result in headaches, aching and sore muscles, tiredness, lethargy if not managed with a balanced massage effectively. I believe it is important for initial consultation to obtain the best treatment for the goal & outcome you are seeking.

What others say about us

One of my new years resolutions for 2014 was to have a massage at least once a fortnight . After my one hour massage with Valerie , Nth Adelaide, I am hooked. I can't think of a better way to bliss out ,relax and repair my body. I am now convinced that a regular massage should be compulsory, or at least scheduled frequently into our busy lives. My lovely masseuse, who was ever so mindful of my fibromyalgia is Valerie Shearing. You can also call Romeos Organics Nth Adelaide. 2014 is the wear of self love and self nurturing, I can't think of a more nurturing thing to do than the gift of massage.

"What a gem! Valerie is a warm, compassionate practitioner with a genuine concern for the overall well being of her clients. From the moment I walked in the door of her practice to the moment I left, I ...felt 100% of her focus was on my comfort and ensuring not only a great result but also a great experience. She took the time to understand my lifestyle, pressures and stresses and took care to explain not only the reasons for my aches and pains but how she planned on treating them and how I could support the treatments with some simple techniques at home. With her calm approach and the relaxing environment she creates, Valerie somehow made this feel more like a treat than a treatment. The next time I have an ache or a pain that needs some remedial work, Val will definitely be my first call."
