Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a powerful massage technique that works on the physical, emotional and, often, spiritual levels. Designed to release pain in the muscle and the connective tissue, or fascia, it relieves held-in tension and restores comfort and harmony to the whole being. In addition, regular massages help to increase lymphatic circulation and regulate the flow of fluid throughout the entire body. Deep Tissue Massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity and have sustained physical injury.
The treatment includes acupressure massage, polarity and breath work using thumbs, fingers, knuckles and elbows, the re-alignment of muscle fibres and fascia, working deep around the scapula, hips and in the ribs. The technique follows certain energy channels (meridians), pushing out long-held trauma.
Myofascial Fascia is the main connective tissue in the body. It surrounds every cell, muscle, bone, nerve and blood vessel, creating a three-dimensional web, which spreads from head to toe. Myofascial Release is a form of bodywork that aims to release areas where the fascia maybe tight or stuck. The techniques are applied slowly to allow the fascia to soften, lengthen and release and create freedom of movement where we are stuck, removing the underlying causes of pain and stiffness.
The practitioner will apply a steady, gentle pressure into the tissues, and then slowly start to stretch the tissue, gently holding it until a release in the tissues is felt. The techniques are not usually painful, but sometimes a mild burning or heat may be felt as the fascia releases.
Indian Head Massage
The technique, also known as Champissage, releases muscle tension, stimulates circulation and encourages lymphatic drainage. It stretches and mobilises the tissues of the neck and shoulders. This fully oxygenates the cells, improves blood flow to the head and neck, and increases the distribution of nutrients to encourage healing throughout the body. It improves and stimulates scalp circulation, which helps to promote texture combined with strength and growth of hair.
As well as being relaxing, it can also be an invigorating and refreshing experience. An Indian Head massage comforts and harmonises the body’s natural balance, so helping to promote physical and psychological well-being leaving you with a feeling of peace and tranquility and, above all, relaxation. It is a safe, simple, non-intrusive yet effective therapy and can be carried out through clothes, with or without oil.
Hot Stones Fusion
A full hot stone massage is a deeply relaxing treatment. Volcanic stones are heated in water to a comfortable temperature and then used as extensions of the hands to massage the body. The heat enhances the relaxing and healing effect of the massage by warming and softening the soft tissues.
Stones can also be used clinically to treat chronic pain and acute injuries. Combining hot and cold can speed up the healing process by flushing the affected area and bringing fresh blood (with oxygen and nutrients) into it.
Pregnancy Massage focuses on the special physical needs of the mum-to-be, providing a nurturing and soothing touch. It induces a feeling of wellbeing due to improved circulation, reduction in pain, relaxation effects, healing and increased energy. The benefits of relaxation and a balancing of emotions can be passed on to the unborn child, as cortisol and endorphin levels are brought into balance.
The massage treatment is mainly carried out in a reclining side-lying position with plenty of blankets, towels and pillows for support and comfort. This is not only really comfortable, but safe for you and your baby. The massage addresses the scalp and face, neck and shoulders, arms and hands, the back and hips as well as the legs and feet.
Reflexology is based on the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet, which correspond to all of the glands, organs and other parts of the body.
By applying finger pressure and stimulating the reflex points, the body can be brought back into balance and harmony, resulting in profound relaxation. It opens up energy pathways that were previously congested or closed and is a natural preventative healthcare treatment that can benefit everyone from young to old.
We will be happy to meet and discuss your specific requirements, at no cost to you and without obligation. When we have agreed which package is right for you, we will provide a formal proposal or quotation for your consideration.
