The Therapies I Offer

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a therapy that works on the deep tissue structure of muscles, fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles) and tendons. The aim is to release chronic muscular tension and knots (adhesions) and to break up scar tissue created by old injuries. Stressed muscles can easily slow down the flow of oxygen and essential nutrients to where they are needed and this allows toxins to build up in muscle tissue. Inflammation and toxin build up contribute to pain and a reduced range of movement.

Using deep finger pressures and firm, slow movements Deep Tissue Massage works to release built-up toxins by loosening the muscles. Releasing these toxins means that blood and oxygen can circulate through the body freely. This action leads to a reduction in pain, increased movement and faster healing times.

Deep Tissue Massage has also been found to reduce heart rate, reduce stress hormone (cortisol) levels and boost mood by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin (our 'happy' hormones).

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy combines the powerful elements of essential oils and therapeutic massage. The oils are all obtained from plant sources including flowers, herbs, spices, woods and resins. Many of these plants are also used in herbal medicine and have known healing qualities. All of the products I use are the finest available and are sourced from the highest quality raw materials from around the world. This ensures you receive the best treatment possible.

Aromatherapy massage is proven to be very effective for the relief of health complaints including: fatigue (physical and emotional), depression and anxiety, high blood pressure, joint problems (including arthritis and rheumatism), menstrual problems including menopause, poor circulation, Fibromyalgia and ME, sinusitis, asthma, and a wide range of skin conditions but these are two areas where it is exceptionally useful:

Stress: We all know that without some stress none of us would get out of bed in the morning but too much stress can quickly affect us in negative ways. Some people will know they are suffering from stress but others may only experience the physical effects that it can cause; anxiety, insomnia, headaches, fatigue, regular colds/viruses etc. Essential oils combined with massage offer a gentle and completely holistic way to bring greater balance in your life.

Back Pain: Many of us suffer with tight muscles in the upper back, neck and shoulders or nagging lower back pain which can lead to great discomfort. Aromatherapy treatments can help to relieve back pain and tension and raise your awareness of poor posture.

Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage developed from Ayurveda - the healing system that has been used in India for many centuries. It plays a big part in family rituals such as weddings and births but is also used to provide the whole family with healing and relaxation on a daily basis.

Indian head massage works to ease the pain and tension that builds up in the head, face, neck and shoulders and to restore full mobility to this area.

An Indian Head Massage treatment is carried out with the recipient seated in a comfortable chair and fully clothed. It begins with a neck and shoulder massage to remove stiffness and tension and then a range of techniques are used to release tension from the scalp. The treatment ends with a facial massage where I work with acupressure points to relieve sinus pressure, stimulate the circulation and increase alertness.

Indian head massage is excellent for relieving stress, tension and fatigue, headache and migraine, insomnia and sinusitis. It improves blood and lymphatic flow, relaxes connective tissues, helps in the elimination of toxins and waste products and provides an overall increase in the mobility of the neck and shoulders.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage is a speciality massage where smooth, heated stones are used to warm the muscles both before and during the massage. The stones are made from basalt; a volcanic rock rich in iron which holds heat efficiently. The heat in the stones warms and relaxes the muscles and so facilitates a deeper treatment. This type of treatment can also improve circulation and calm the nervous system. I also often use a bespoke blend of essential oils to personalise and increase the effectiveness of this treatment.

Hot stone massage can help with muscular pain, poor circulation, chronic arthritic conditions, fibromyalgia, stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia.

Swedish Massage

Massage has been used for thousands of years as an intuitive way to soothe the body and mind. It provides a truly holistic approach to health and can be used instead of or alongside modern medicine.

One of the most popular massages available, Swedish massage uses a range of massage movements, with oil, to increase the flow of blood and oxygen to the muscles. This increased flow flushes away the toxins which build up in muscles over time. Removing these toxins leads to a decrease in the recovery time for muscular injuries whilst stretching out ligaments and tendons. Swedish massage will also boost blood flow to the skin, soothe the nervous system and can help to reduce physical and emotional stress. Regular treatments are recommended as part of a stress management regime.

Reiki/Seichem Healing

Reiki/Seichem Healing is a gentle therapy where universal life energy is channeled to the recipient through the hands of an attuned healer such as myself. The name Reiki derives from two Japanese words 'rei' meaning divine and 'ki' meaning life force energy. Problems arise when the flow of this energy in our bodies is disrupted

Reiki is truly 'wholistic' in that it nurtures the whole person on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. At each treatment your natural healing processes are activated and your body takes exactly what it needs for wellbeing to be restored.

Reiki has been shown to be beneficial in helping with depression, anxiety and panic attacks, headaches/migraine, insomnia, mood swings, fears and phobias, grief, anger, autoimmune disorders and fibromyalgia.

During a treatment you will be asked to lie comfortably on a massage couch (or sit in a chair if this is easier) and listen to soothing music while I place my hands on or near specific points along your body. You may notice sensations such as heat or tingling during the session although some people do not notice anything at all. Most people report that they feel very relaxed after a Reiki treatment.
