Massage is defined as the systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for a curative effect.
Soft tissues are made more pliable through massage to promote circulation and blood flow and bring about healing effects: physical and psychological changes for general wellbeing.
The system of massage treatment involves the therapist using their hands to apply pressure on your body. Therapists use various techniques to work on the body: stroking and gliding (effleurage), kneading the soft tissues (petrissage), or what is termed ‘percussion’ (tapotement).
Massage therapy is extremely beneficial to people leading busy lifestyles suffering from stress. Massage will not only aid with mental relaxation but will work on physical symptoms of back and neck pain that comes from sitting for an extended period of time at a desk or from
Regular massage is an excellent preventative measure so that such injuries do not occur. Regular massage maintenance will increase your overall sense of wellbeing for optimum physical and mental health.
Massage is used to treat a wide range of disorders, such as:
Headaches and migraines
Work related stress
Repetitive strain injury
Eating disorders and digestive dysfunction
Pre-natal pregnancy conditions
The power of healing in massage is the energy that flows through the therapist’s hands in touch to refresh, regenerate and revitalise. There are several forms of massage. Some massage concentrates more on relaxing the client whilst others will work more deeply at repairing damaged muscle tissue.
Hot Stone Massage Hot Stone Massage aids the client to experience deep relaxation. The therapist places heated basalt stones on the body’s acupressure points. A series of Swedish Massage style techniques is used with the therapist holding smooth stones and applying essential oils to work away muscle tension.
Remedial Massage Remedial Massage works to heat muscles and tendons that are damaged, impaired or knotted. It holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort back to the original cause. It uses specialised techniques to support and speed up the body's own repair mechanisms. The massage is applied directly to the skin usually with an oil lubricant. Passive stretching moves are also employed.
