Massage Therapies #01

Holistic Body Massage

A holistic massage is a tailored treatment that can involve techniques from a variety of therapies, such as aromatherapy and Swedish body massage, to create a massage that is unique to each individual client.

An holistic massage is usually a massage of the whole body using a vegetable oil known as carrier oil. The pace and pressure used can be adapted to work out tension, aches and pains, to soothe and relax, or to stimulate and tone the muscles and tissues. A body massage would usually include the back, neck, shoulders, arms and legs, but again this can be adapted. A 30 minute back and shoulder massage is also available for those who prefer a shorter treatment.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage was designed for treating athletes but is actually useful for anyone suffering from chronic pain, injury or range of motion (ROM) problems.

This type of therapy deals with the soft tissues of the body such as muscles, tendons and ligaments, and emphasizes on the prevention and recovery of injuries to them. Treatment can range from a short invigorating pre-sport massage, to a longer treatment that works on sore, tired muscles and realignment of tissues. Sports massage is specific to the affected area, and focuses on relieving symptoms relating to an injury.

Aromatherapy massage is one of the most luxurious treatments in the complementary therapy range. It combines the healing power of massage with the therapeutic properties of Essential oils to help improve physical and emotional well-being.

Essential oils are present in minute quantities within the leaves, flowers, fruit, grass, roots, bark, gum or blossom of plants, and are what gives a plant its fragrance. In an aromatherapy treatment, essential oils are chosen for each clients specific emotional and physical needs and applied using a gentle, soothing massage which includes some pressure point work. An aromatherapy treatment includes a massage of the whole body, including the face, scalp and feet, a real top-to-toe treatment.

Massage Therapies #04

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage dates back to over three thousand years. The treatment originated in China and India, and more recently has been used by the North American Indians living in the South West states. Some native healers used heated stones to ease the discomfort of menstruation or muscle tension in other areas.

Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. The heat is both deeply relaxing and helps to release tight muscles. It is generally accepted that one stroke of the heated stone is the equivalent of five strokes of the therapists hands! The benefits of hot stone massage include increased local circulation and improved blood flow to the surrounding tissues, aiding healing and greater ability to transport toxins and waste products from the area. This treatment is deeply relaxing whilst also being extremely effective in relieving muscle tension.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head massage has evolved from traditional techniques practiced in India, where massage is an important part of family life. As well as promoting healthy hair growth, this relaxing treatment can help to create a feeling of peace and calm.

Indian Head massage is a seated massage of the upper back and arms, shoulders, neck, face and scalp using a nourishing oil such as sesame. The treatment includes a variety of techniques, some are designed to stimulate, some to reduce tension and others to relax, but pressure and pace can be altered to suit the client. This treatment is great for relieving mental fatigue, eyestrain and headaches, and regular treatments can help to encourage healthy hair growth and condition.

Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu is the Japanese healing art of Finger Pressure massage. Its purpose is to work on various pressure points and to balance the meridian channels in the body. These channels can be seen by using a special kind of photography called "Kirlian", which makes them visible.

Shiatsu is an holistic therapy and although it's aim is to balance the body by diagnosing the weakest and the strongest channel, this way of thinking can lead to the practitioner
just focusing on the channel and not the person and their condition. Shiatsu incorporates many techniques such as stretching, pressing, rolling and in some cases manipulations of the skeleton from an osteopathic type approach. The treatment is carried out fully clothed to maintain dignity of the client therefore loose fitting clothing is best worn. Shiatsu can help people of all ages with problems such as lower back pain, sciatica, frozen shoulder and TMJ disorders. It can also help with emotional issues such as depression, as well as digestive problems such IBS and stress related illness.

Shiatsu Massage – 60 minutes
