Massage

Body massage is often referred to as a holistic treatment, which means 'treating the mind as well as the body'. It has become increasingly popular within the complementary therapies. Massage is one of the most enjoyable and relaxing activities one could ever experience. It is both physically and mentally relaxing. The therapeutic touch makes us feel good, relieving the stress and tension of everyday living, leaving a feeling of wellbeing and increased energy levels.

What Happens During a Massage?

A full body massage lasts for an hour. During your the treatment you will be asked to remove your clothing to your underwear, towels will be used to ensure your modesty. Your therapist may use oils or creams during the massage. These can help nourish the skin, and allow a free-flowing massage.

Can Anyone Enjoy a Massage?

This therapy is suitable for most adult's but there are certain conditions where you should avoid massage. To ensure the continued well-being of clients, all treatments begin with a consultation, which enables your therapist to make sure that massage is right for you. In some instances your doctor's permission may be required before treatments can commence, for example if you have a heart condition. A confidential record card will be kept with any relevant notes for future treatments. If you have any medical conditions or concerns, please check with your therapist prior to booking your appointment.

After Your Treatment

To gain maximum benefit from your massage, it is advisable to drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol in the hours immediately after the treatment. If you have any queries, don't hesitate to ask your therapist for advice.

Massage is often used alongside conventional care in hospices, hospitals and other healthcare settings.

Swedish massage

Swedish massage is the manipulation of soft tissue and muscles for therapeutic purposes, which stimulates the blood, lymph, muscles and the nerves. All the massage strokes relate to increasing the flow of the body's circulatory and lymphatic systems. The massage manipulations can either have a stimulating or relaxing effect, depending on the manipulation techniques carried out.

Aromatherapy Massage

The aromatherapy treatment offers a relaxing massage that is performed in combination with the pure therapeutic properties of plants, using their essential oils in a natural complementary therapy, which is said to help improve both physical and emotional well-being. The essential oils work on two levels, absorption and inhalation to deliver a skin conditioning massage that is pure indulgence.

Hot Stones Therapy

Stone therapy originated many thousand of years ago from various different cultures including Incas, Egyptians, Chinese, and Native Americans. They used rocks that originally came from outer space in the form of meteorites.
Healers used stones from river beds, which they warmed on hot coals or in hot water and placed them
on the energy points (Chakras) of the body to release pain and muscle tension. The hot stones relax the muscles, drawing out muscular pain and discomfort. Stones appear to connect the flow of energy, which helps to rebalance the physical body, emotional state and spirit as one.

Effects of Hot Stones

  • Vaso-Dilation: The blood vessels widen, bringing blood to areas of the body ie skin
  • Increased Circulation: More oxygenated blood circulating
  • Increased Metabolism: Speeds up the rate of nutrients being utilised
  • Increased Pulse Rate: Helps the heart pump efficiently
  • Increased Cell Metabolism: Speeds up the process of manufacturing new cells
  • Increased Lymph Function: Speeds up the removal of toxins and waste
  • Relaxes the Muscles: Enables the therapist to work on the muscles without causing discomfort to the client

N.B: Massage should not be used in place of conventional medical care. Always consult a GP or other health professional for medical attention or advice.
