Massage is the manipulation of muscles and tissues using different techniques. It acts positively on all of the body’s systems in a sensitive non-invasive way.
So, how can it help you?
Your first treatment will include a consultation to gather information from any medical conditions to lifestyle and diet.
This will enable me to build a picture of your ‘whole’ being. A treatment plan will then be devised and adapted as your needs change over time.
Depending on the type of massage devised you may have remove some of your clothing. I will ensure you are covered with towels throughout the treatment. Oil or wax is used to enable me to manipulate the muscles and tissues of your body.
Different techniques are used during the treatment including:
- Effleurage – soothing, stroking
- Petrissage – kneading, wringing
- Percussion – tapping, cupping
- Frictions – Focus on a specific area
I will use these techniques and other approaches to provide a fully holistic treatment.
After the treatment you will be given time to relax further. The treatment will be discussed and any changes will be given to you along with aftercare advice and any reactions you may feel during the 24 hours after your massage.
