Massage is one of the oldest forms of healthcare, traditionally used to ease pain and anxiety and promote optimum health. Massage Therapy helps to break up muscle knots, releasing pressure on the body and encouraging relaxation.
It is used to treat a wide range of medical conditions including occupational and posture related problems, muscular over-use, accident-related injuries, sports injuries, pregnancy related issues, headaches, and circulatory/lymph and nerve conditions plus many more chronic conditions.
I originally trained in Swedish Massage which I have combined with over 15 years experience of body-work to create my own Holistic Massage, designed to soothe your nervous system, release tight muscles, increase elasticity in the tissues, improve blood and oxygen circulation, enhance range of motion as well as reduce anxiety and unease in the body which has been known to help alleviate depression.
Within a session, we are also able to look at improving the flow of energy to particular muscle groups, organs and meridian pathways along the body using the protocols of Chinese medicine. By applying pressure to specific pressure points, we can promote energy flow, relieve blockages and correct energy imbalances in the body. This helps regulate nervous system activity and stimulates the circulatory, lymphatic and hormonal system, setting up optimum conditions for the body to then heal itself naturally.
There is a direct link between our physical well-being and our mental or emotional state, which can be positively affected by massage therapy. Research supports the use of massage therapy as an effective approach in injury management and rehabilitation, as well as part of a preventive care program to compliment positive physical and mental health.
