Massage is an uplifting and relaxing therapy available in many forms to suit your current needs.
Below are the massage therapies I currently offer and these can help with a range of conditions.
Massage Therapies Offered
Lay face-up on warm water-filled cushions throughout your entire massage with no need to roll over halfway through for an uninterrupted, flowing and deeply restful massage experience.
Whilst suitable for anyone, it creates a wonderfully comfortable massage experience during pregnancy and for people who have limited mobility due to back pain, those uncomfortable reclining face-down or rolling over as in a more traditional massage.
The Hydrotherm system a world first as a 3-Dimension massage. I am a certified hydrotherm therapist and and also specialise in Pregnancy and Cancer Wellness Massage.
& Body Massage
Swedish/Classical Massage invigorates and benefits all the body's systems and aids the natural healing processes. It aims to relax the whole body by working with the muscles with gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. The amount of pressure used for this type of massage can be adjusted to suit the client, so it may have a more relaxing emphasis or may also be very invigorating.
Options are neck back and shoulders, neck back shoulders head and scalp, or full body with treatments times varying from around 45 mins (neck back shoulder) to 90 mins (front and back of body, with client rolling over halfway through).
Indian Head Massage
+ Shoulders, Neck & Hands
Indian Head Massage is particularly beneficial for stress as it focuses on the areas most affected: upper back, shoulders, neck and head.
I also include acupressure/micro-massage techniques to the face, as well as the more traditional scalp-massage , to help relieve tension in the jaw and muscles around the eyes and cheeks where a surprisingly high amount of muscle tension is often stored.
Traditionally carried out with the client seated upright in a chair (bare shouldered) it can also be carried out over clothing, for example, in an office environment.
It varies from therapist to therapist.
Oriental Fusion Natural Facelift Massage
A safe and 100% natural alternative to surgical facelifts, this wonderful facial rejuvenation massage combines a number of reliably tried and tested techniques to achieve a noticeably fresher and more vibrant appearance of the skin, every time!
It includes tapping techniques that stimulate the lymph drainage system (helping reduce any puffiness) as well as micro-massage and drainage to the face creating natural uplift and improving the complexion overall.
Again, this is a very relaxing treatment that can not only provide a more natural alternative to surgical facial procedure, but can also assist with relieving congestion and that feeling of pressure and strain often felt around the eyes and forehead.
A note about contra-indicated conditions
There are a number of conditions for which massage is not suitable. These include D.V.T., serious heart problems, very high blood pressure, infectious diseases etc.
If you have been turned away from a spa or regular massage therapist due to being on your cancer wellness journey, you are not excluded from enjoying a wonderfully supportive and relaxing treatment; see my cancer wellness pages for more information on how I can specifically help you; I am trained in Tranquil Sea massage using the Hydrotherm system for ladies and gents on their cancer journey, making this massage also highly suitable for people with chronic fatigue, for example. A detailed consultation needs to be completed before your first treatment if this applies to you.
The Hydrotherm Massage is also a wonderfully opulent option during pregnancy and offers an opportunity for mum-to-be to recline face-up for the duration of massage (as opposed to side-laying), the angle of the recline being adjustable as pregnancy progresses so that both mum and baby get the most from the whole experience.
For other medicated conditions, massage may be beneficial but the advice of your G.P. may need to be sought before proceeding.
These will be covered during your free consultation, to ensure you get the right treatment for your needs but if you are in any doubt, please get in touch with your GP or other Health Professionsl for their recommendations first.
