Massage tailored to your needs...
From deep tissue for sports injury to a light gentle massage for stress relief.
Many people who come for Holistic Massage Therapy for the first time have in mind the type of massage they receive at spas or hotels; these massages are fantastic for relaxation and pampering, however, this tends to be their sole focus...
Holistic Massage Therapy goes far beyond this; it truly is a comprehensive health-related treatment that I'm really passionate about helping as many people as possible integrate into their lives.
Regular Massage is a wonderful preventative measure to keep you supple and keep muscular tension and joint stiffness at bay before they progress into something more serious, as well as supporting those who already have medical conditions that result in muscular tension.
Vitally, it is hugely beneficial in helping to release stress from the body and towards maintaining a positive outlook. We are discovering more about how vital regular relaxation time is in maintaining good mental and physical health.
Massage Therapy also acknowledges that every person is individual; occupations and life events can deeply affect our physical and emotional wellbeing in diverse ways; we each hold tension in our bodies differently, we react to stress in various ways, we age differently, our postures vary, the exercise we do and the food we eat varies. All these factors and more have a huge impact on our physical and emotional health - and is the reason that Holistic Massage Therapy really stands out as it takes all these factors into consideration. When you come for a Holistic Massage it truly is...THERAPY!
However, you first come for a Massage, whether that be as a reward after a hard week or via a medical referral, the initial consultation will help me build a picture of the individual massage you need. Enable me to create a massage that is perfectly tailored to what your body needs on any given day. This can change each time you come for massage... One day a treatment might pay attention to a specific physical issue. The next time you visit you may have been through a stressful time and wish to release some of those stresses or enjoy some relaxation and much needed time to yourself.
You may simply want a little treat? Regular stress-release from your body is vital for your health and wellbeing!!!
Massage Therapy is about building a trusting partnership and providing support on a journey to health. As part of a general wellbeing routine, a regular Massage treatment focusing on muscular tension and stress release, produces a wonderful sense of euphoria, deep relaxation and release of tension from the body which keeps you fighting fit both physically and mentally. It can also be part of a restorative process, assisting your body if it needs to recover from physical injury. Or you may need regular Massage treatments to help you manage discomfort or pain when suffering from certain medical conditions; the parasympathetic nervous system (the part of the nervous system which induces rest, repair and relaxation) is triggered during Massage and this assists the release of tension and pain, allowing our bodies to return to health, triggering proper digestion and immune system responses.
We will create an individual massage plan that is tailored to your needs.
I have Clients of all ages, that I adapt my massage types to their needs. From the treatment of chronic tension, sciatica, sports injury and recovery from falls, immune deficiencies, muscle tension, trapped nerves, post and pre-operation massage.
To a gentle human touch that is so often missing in our lives. To help us restore balance, connect with our bodies, and vitally relieve stress and tensions by switching their nervous systems from the sympathetic to the parasympathetic.
Massage is a supportive therapy; it encourages the body to help itself by nurturing each of the bodily systems via soft tissue manipulation. Or sometimes some people just need someone to listen to them!
