This is a gentle and nurturing treatment that treats the whole person. It is deeply relaxing and beneficial to mind, body and spirit.
On a physical level, massage improves circulation and lymph flow, cleanses the body of toxins and impurities, relaxes muscles, deepens breathing, revitalises energy and restores the mind-body balance.
Holistic Massage is one of the oldest and simplest forms of treatment. It uses therapeutic touch to manipulate and relax the muscles and soft tissues of the body, relieving tension and bringing the body into a relaxed state
Can help: General aches and pains, relieve tension, reduce anxiety, promote sleep, aid relaxation.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage therapy is often used to help those actively involved in sports but is suitable for everyone. It is more orientated towards therapeutic treatment than pure relaxation. Deep Tissue Massage focuses on areas that are particularly tight relative to the rest of the body. It may involve myofascial and trigger point release treatment.
Can help: Deep tension, trigger points, chronic conditions, muscle recovery, rehabilitation and injury prevention.
Some people choose to have a either a relaxing holistic massage or a deep tissue massage regularly to reduce the effect of stress, poor posture; regular sports training or problems relating to working positions. Others have it to reduce an acute tightness in an area of the body (such as the neck, shoulders or low back) which can occur from time to time.
Massage can be both relaxing and therapeutic.
