Holistic Massage and Bodywork
Holistic Massage and Bodywork is an individual, intuitive and professional approach to easing physical and emotional discomfort.
Holistic massage therapy draws upon may different styles of massage combining a medley of techniques that are incorporated into a session. Therefore, there is no set routine and each massage is tailored to the requirements of the individual client. .
I work with my clients, encouraging feedback and guidance about the feel of the treatment and its effects on the body as I believe we are working together to help the body release, heal and mend. Massage is not just something I do for my clients; it is something I do with them taking into consideration their physical and emotional needs.
I am intuitive in my approach and will have a general idea of how the session may flow from the consultation but I also remain adaptable as I pay attention to how the body responds throughout the massage. The mind and body can get used to pain and discomfort and sometimes, it isn’t until the body is touched and awareness is drawn to a particular area that this becomes apparent.
Long relaxing strokes, trigger point release, acupressure, deep tissue, rocking, mobilisation, stretches, energy healing are all techniques that may be incorporated into a session.
As well as using traditional massage strokes, I also incorporate rocking, passive stretches and joint mobilisations into my sessions, gently coaxing and moving the muscles and joints, encouraging them to loosen, relax, and move more freely. Mobilisations of the legs are also very effective in freeing up the lower back.
I am able to work gently with a nurturing and healing approach or incorporate a stronger and more firmer approach where required, however, my treatments do not aim to be sore or painful as I like to ensure the body and mind can fully let go. I may also include some relaxing Reiki or reflexology to finish that can help continue the feelings of peace and wellbeing.
Holistic massage is tailored yet evolving, dynamic and still, traditional and experimental but most of all nurturing and caring. No client is the same and each session will vary to ensure an individual and tailored approach is incorporated to meet their specific needs.
I am now fully qualified in Hot Stone Massage ready for the Autumn / Winter
In addition to Holistic Massage I am also now qualified in Hot Stone Massage which is a deeper more relaxing treatment that uses warm volcanic stones that are used to heat the muscles enabling us to work more deeply. The effects are claimed to be more relaxing, grounding and more effective in treating muscle tension in the body.
So book in for a treatment and see for yourself……
