THERAPIST SPOTLIGHT

Announcing our new physiotherapist and massage therapist, Jeferson Lessmann.   Physiotherapy (Musculoskeletal) Sports Massage Deep Tissue Massage Relaxing Body Massage Lymphatic Drainage De-Stress Massage   Jeferson will be at theLodge.space every Saturday 3pm - 8pm   “I am a graduate Physiotherapist from ACE - Associação Catarinense de Ensino, Joinville, Brazil and post-graduate Dermatofunctional Physiotherapy (skin rehabilitation) specialist from IBRATE – Instituto Brasileiro de Therapias, Curitiba, Brazil. I am a HCPC registered Physiotherapist and a CNHC registered Massage and Sport Therapist (and fully insured across all modalities).  My 5 year training comprised theory and practice across a broad range of subjects including: musculoskeletal, orthopaedics, paediatric neurology & child development, adult neurology, cardiopulmonary, intensive care, dermatology, rheumatology, geriatrics, urology and gynaecology, hydrotherapy, and sports rehabilitation.  Since graduating, I have worked with a wide range of patients from different backgrounds and with varying conditions and comorbidities in the Musculoskeletal, Soft Tissue Therapy and Skin Rehabilitation areas of Physiotherapy.  I firmly believe in patient empowerment through focus on keeping patients fully aware of their condition and motivated throughout their treatment. Successful treatment plans require full patient engagement and I achieve this with detailed orientation and continuous feedback allied with sharing scientific knowledge. This, combined with the treatment, gives my patients a sense of independence and self-worth which, I believe, directly impacts on their recovery and overall quality of life.  Being a therapist is a privilege. I assist, teach and observe, but I am also learning so much about being human and the challenges of achieving physical and emotional goals on a journey littered with setbacks. I am truly fortunate to have supported many people in their journey to a healthier, more able life, and hope to continue helping people throughout my career.”

STEVEN SMALLWOOD

HEAD THERAPIST

I have trained at both the famous City Lit, overseen by the stringent City & Guilds educational body, and at the London School of Massage. I'm lucky to have found an occupation I love and proud that this shows in my ability to give each and every client a massage which addresses the reasons they booked but always tries to go one step further.  

I'm a member of the CThA (Complementary Therapists Association), CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council) and am fully insured. My training included many aspects of health and safety, including hygiene and cleanliness. It also dealt with privacy, comfort and care - as everyone's situations and cultures differ. 

Not everyone that visits me comes with aching muscles or knots... some have stressful lives and need a relaxing moment in their otherwise hectic day... others book for a well earned treat that's just for them, good for the soul.

My days at the Lodge are Mondays 10am to 3pm, Wednesdays 3pm to 8pmFridays from 10am to 8pm and Saturdays from 10am to 3pm.

To book your appointment, please call Reception on 020 7231 1088, find us on the MindBody app or email at: steven@thelodge.space

Alongside my treatment work and continuing professional development as a therapist, I am also a professional contemporary dancer. I currently teach and lecture in contemporary dance and contact improvisation at higher education institutions including; London Studio Centre, Rambert School, and London Contemporary Dance School. I also teach both open and private professional dance classes and workshops in the UK and abroad. Between my work as teacher and therapist I enjoy spending my free time moving. I regularly practice contact improvisation, as well as capoeira based acrobatics, climbing, cycling, hiking, and snowboarding.

My various interests and skills continually complement and feed one another. This allows me to draw upon my experience of dance and movement training and the tactile contact skills I have acquired over many years, in order to enhance and optimise my clinical handling, application of soft tissue techniques, and to inform the remedial exercise programmes and further advice I give to clients. I thrive and thoroughly enjoy working with a vast range of people whom often differ greatly in terms of their age, health, lifestyle, body type, abilities, and treatment requirements.

Mario.jpg

MARIO DE SOUSA

MANUAL THERAPIST

Mario De Sousa is a Traditional Japanese Shiatsu Therapist in methods of Namikoshi and Seiki Meridian Shiatsu, also has qualification in traditional Thai Yoga & Trigger points massage.

"I believe there is truth in the saying that if the mind is weakened the body consequently suffers. In order to treat the body effectively, one has to treat the mind and vice versa, but a connecting link is necessary so that one can help the other. That connection is rooted in our inner healing force; in our ability to activate communication and communion between the mind, body and spirit and definitly with any doubts i found in traditional Shiatsu a powerful tool to reach that equilibrium & natural aliment and as a therapist, I see my role as facilitating health, wellbeing and balance through the modality of Shiatsu; however the true power to heal always rests in you.“

Are you suffering aches, pains, stiffness, fatigue, stress or injuries? Would you like to feel relaxed, energised and ready to face better days? The therapeutic treatment Mario offers is tailored to your specific requirements, to help restore your vital energies, working through Meridians bring it back into equilibrium and natural aliment of your mind & body.

Mario’s day at the Lodge is Tuesday from 3pm to 9pm.

Testamonial

"Having woken up at home with a stiff neck on a Monday morning - following a weekend of whitewater kayaking, sleeping on a bunk bed in a hostel, and driving the 9 hour round-trip to Wales and back - I decided to give The Lodge Space a call to see if one of their therapist's could help. They booked me an appointment with Mario for that very same morning, which meant that I could get on with the rest of my day free from pain. I have had quite a few massages in my time, but I can honestly say Mario’s was up there with the best of them. He was both friendly and professional, which helped me to completely relax. He listened intently to my problem and adjusted his treatment to suit. I would have no hesitations in recommending him."
