Bruce Lang. Osteopath, Sydney
My name is Bruce Lang and I am an Osteopath in Sydney Australia with over 40 years of clinical practice and experience. It has been my privilege to have worked with Ruth McNulty as my massage assistant during the last year .
Ruth very quickly became a much appreciated and respected work companion. Patients were continually praising her manual skills along with her gentle kindness.
She has that rare quality of intuitive touch and palpatory skill so essential in effective soft tissue work. As well as her brilliant hands Ruth has a wonderful heart with a deep and empathetic insight into the psychological/ emotional needs of everyone she works on.
I have no hesitation in urging you to experience the gentle healing of this gifted young lady. Unfortunately if it hadn’t been for her return to England our work would have continued for many more years.
Treatment: Pregnancy Massage
I had a pregnancy massage with Ruth when I was 33 weeks pregnant and suffering from sacro-iliac joint dysfunction which was causing me significant back and hip pain in my daily activities. Ruth was really understanding and good at making me feel comfortable on my side with lots of pillows before we got started.
I’ve had several massages with different therapists but I can honestly say that this massage was the best - it felt incredible! She worked with me to find the right level of pressure and which muscles to work on. She described what she was doing and why, it felt like she really understood the stresses and strains that pregnancy places on your body. She managed to find & release areas of tension that had been building up during the whole pregnancy, it was such a relief. It made a massive difference to my mobility for weeks afterwards!
Highly recommended! She’s really friendly and kind, puts you at your ease, and the whole experience was super relaxing.
Treatment: Pregnancy Massage
Before I was pregnant I was worried how my body would cope with pregnancy due to having a bad back for most of my life. The extra strain of baby weight and general aches and pains that come with it but you don't expect, were hard.
I started to see Ruth regularly during my pregnancy and she was wonderful. I left feeling so much better and ache and pain free. Because Ruth is so knowledgeable I was confident she could give me the right treatment and it be perfectly safe for me and the baby. Whereas other 'pregnancy massages' hardly apply any pressure, seeing Ruth I felt like all my muscles were given a deep rub and were back to full working order. I can't recommend Ruth enough and continue to see her now that I've had my little girl.
Treatment: Sports & Remedial Massage
I have been using Ruth's sports massage services for a while now, and as always she delivers a great service. She makes you feel relaxed and comfortable as soon as you walk through the door with her smile and witty banter.
Her knowledge of the way that the body works is very impressive and she treats every individual's needs separately. I use the gym quite frequently and end up with tight muscles and a huge amount of stress build up. Ruth knows the right amount of pressure to use and manipulative techniques to relieve these pressure points. The facilities are great: large car park, clean and tidy inside, and with gentle music.
Treatment: Posture work and negative movement pattererns
Having had difficulties with my feet since childhood and following a succession of running injuries I was keen to find a resolution, never more so when I decided to undergo yoga teacher training. Suggestions by health services were to find relief through abstaining from some physical activities, aspirin, orthopaedic insoles or surgery left me feeling let down by my body.
Having regular treatments with Ruth has been an amazing journey, through which I have developed awareness and understanding of my own body and postural tendencies. My posture and alignment have already improved dramatically and it’s so exciting to realise that with support my physical limitations and difficulties can be overcome. Ruth’s holistic approach and knowledge of the body and anatomy is astounding, she has explained everything and provided me with accessible knowledge and tools to improve so it has been an empowering process throughout.
Whether it is for restoration, relaxation, or corrective, more focused postural work, Ruth is my one and only trusted therapist and I can not recommend her highly enough, I only wish I had known about the possible effects earlier.
