Many people underestimate the healing power of touch and the numerous benefits of massage therapy. Massage is not just about relaxation, it has so many more benefits on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. Massage helps to relieve muscle tension, release muscle knots, stretch tight muscles, alleviate aches and pains, improve circulation, reduce scar tissue and stretch marks, calm the nervous system, lower the heart rate, release endorphins (the body’s natural painkiller), increase range of motion, improve posture and mobility, release toxins and waste, increase joint flexibility, normalise blood pressure, boost the immune system, relax the mind and body and relieve anxiety, depression, tension and stress. On an energetic level, a massage treatment helps to cleanse the aura and balance the chakras by clearing any energy blockages and releasing stagnant energy. It can also help to balance the ying and yang energy flow in the body. In addition to the above, massage can help to ground a person to the earth and connect them with their bodies, which will leave them feeling more centered and balanced. It can also help to release any negative feelings, emotions, memories and beliefs which may be being held in the body and manifesting as stress, tension, illness and imbalance.
I am trained in Indian head massage, Swedish body massage, aromatherapy massage, deep tissue massage and tuina massage. Within each massage treatment, I intuitively use a combination of these styles along with energy healing. I tailor each massage treatment and healing session according to the individual’s requirements, preferences and healing needs.
Here is a brief description of each of the massage styles I am qualified in-
Indian Head Massage is a deep and relaxing seated massage based on the Ayurvedic system of healing. It involves massage of the upper back, neck, shoulders, head and face.
Swedish Body Massage is also known as ‘classic massage’ or ‘traditional massage’. It is the most common and popular type of massage, which involves a combination of mild, moderate and deeper pressure massage strokes and movements.
Aromatherapy Massage is a light, gentle and slow massage that includes the use of aromatherapy massage oil. It involves relaxing and soothing massage stokes and movements.
Deep Tissue Massage is a deep and restorative massage, which working on the deeper layers of muscle and fascia in the body. It involves firm pressure massage movements and techniques, and often focuses on particular problem areas.
Tuina Massage is a form of Chinese therapeutic massage and manipulation practised through the clothes. It involves working on acupressure points and the use of a variety of deep and firm pressure movements and techniques.
