What is a Therapeutic Massage?

Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissue; it can be soft and gentle with the addition of essential oils or deep in order to work on painful “knots” that produce lactic acid.

Massage will help:
• Relieve muscular aches and pains
• Improve blood circulation
• Decrease blood pressure and heart rate
• Reduce tension and anxiety

Massage will promote:
• Relaxation
• Stress relief
• Feeling of well being

Our bodies can become tense and rigid through the effects of unbalanced movement habits, emotional tension or physical injury. With repetition, the connective tissue layers begin to glue together and the body becomes stuck in that position. The whole body adjusts to this imbalance, and soon the impact will be reflected throughout.

Similarly, with emotional patterns, a feeling of depression is often characterised by a sunken chest. If this feeling and the bodily stance become habitual, the body will take on this shape.

Physical trauma also disturbs our balance and posture. If you injure your leg you may walk in an uneven or awkward way to protect the injury. That movement pattern can remain long after the injury has healed. Injury and surgery traumatize the connective tissue at the site of the injury, and the scarring and inflexibility may further influence your movements. As life goes on, more and more of these patterns become embedded in the tissues of our bodies.

What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.

It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, lower back tightness, and sore shoulders.

Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.

What is Acupressure and Shiatsu Massage?

Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self curative abilities. When these points are pressed they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force to aid healing.

The therapist stimulates the same points used in acupuncture with finger pressure, rather than inserting fine needles. Using the power and sensitivity of the hand, acupressure is effective in the relief of stress-related ailments and in preventive health care.

Acupressure Massage can bring relief if you suffer from any of the following conditions:

 

• Arthritis
• Indigestion
• Headaches
• Constipation
• Sinus Problems
• Eye Strain
• Neck Pain
• Ulcer Pain
• Backaches
• Muscle aches
• Menstrual Cramps

 

Shiatsu is s non-invasive therapy using fingers, palms, elbows and feet to manipulate the body at specific points along the body’s meridians to stimulate the body’s vital energy.

 

Benefits:
– Can reduce the intensity and duration of pain episodes
– Improve blood flow
– Reduce stress, anxiety and fatigue
– Effective for treating headaches and sleep disturbance
– Relief for muscle pain and stiffness

Shiatsu Massage involves pushing, stretching and kneading the muscle which focuses on pinching and pressing at acupressure points.

 

The whole treatment can be done over the clothes.

What is Aromatherapy Massage?

Aromatherapy massage is massage therapy using highly concentrated plant oils, called essential oils, added to the massage oil or lotion.

Contrary to what its name suggests there are no fatty elements in a pure and natural essential oil. This means they diffuse or evaporate very quickly. Essential oil maybe calming, stimulating, anti-depressant, balancing, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, detoxifying, analgesic, notifying, grounding or uplifting.

Essential oils and essences are extremely powerful substances; they should therefore be used with precaution. “Natural” or “Organic” are not synonyms of “harmless”.

Aromatherapy Massage is a very powerful experience.
