Having a massage in a warm and peaceful room is the perfect way to aid relaxation and to reduce levels of tension and stress. Not only does massage encourage tense muscles to relax it also calms the mind, thus both the body and the mind are soothed.
Massage stimulates the circulation of blood around the body which increases the body`s ability to repair itself. This helps to improve recovery time, reduce pain and generally promote a feeling of well-being.
I use massage oil containing lavender essential oil which has a soothing and calming effect on the body, helping to relieve tension, headaches, migraine and insomnia. Lavender oil can also be beneficial in relieving pain when used for rheumatism, arthritis and muscular aches and pains.
If you have a massage oil or cream of your own which you prefer me to use I am happy to do so.
Each session begins with a consultation where you can ask any questions about how we will work together. We will discuss your treatment needs and identify what we want to achieve.
You change in privacy, to shorts or underwear, and get settled on the massage table before we begin your treatment. When I have completed the massage, I will leave you to dress at your own pace.
Afterwards we will discuss any exercises, stretches or postural changes that may help to continue your healing process.
