Therapeutic Swedish Massage
Releasing and rejuvenating for the whole body, gentle sweeping massage to lull the body into a deep relaxation where the body, mind and emotions can be calmed and soothed.
Gentle massage is used to induce a feeling of well being while deeper more specific massage is used to stretch, loosen and tone muscles.
Deep Tissue Massage
Totally invigorating and transforming, the deep touch allows the gentle unlocking of the memory within the muscle which stores trauma, hurts and injuries which can often build up over many years resulting in “dis-ease” of the body, mind and emotions.
Deep tissue ‘No hands’ massage allows the body to completely let go of the baggage it carries, unknowingly, day by day, resulting in a deep sense of freedom within the body and mind.
A powerful combination of power and sensitivity as the full use of the therapist’s body weight through the soft forearm invites the body to melt into a state of total relaxation, rebalancing muscles and the skeletal system.
Some of the feelings noticed by clients following the massage; taller, lighter, released, pain free, energised, loose, relaxed, confident, completely free!
The fascia is the soft skeleton of the whole body, it is an organ of support. However when it becomes over wrapped it tightens arounds blood vessels, nerves and muscle tissue causing pain and stiffness. The glide in the joints becomes restricted causing pain and altered muscle positioning and flexibility. This treatment allows the soft skeleton, the fascia, to be unwound restoring its fluidity, movement and strength. The underlying muscles and skeleton can begin to function smoothly, reducing joint pain and restoring performance to the body.
It has excellent results and I incorporate it to many of my clients sessions resulting in more effective treatments with quicker results. Clients find they improve more rapidly and are restored back to a pain free life.
