Massage works on a deep level, relaxing and reviving the body mind and spirit. It also encourages good circulation and moves Lymph around the body, helping to eliminate toxins out of the system.
Massage can help with:
- Stress reduction
- Relief from muscular pain
- Deep relaxation
- Toxin elimination
- Improved quality of sleep
- Increased energy levels
- Stimulating the immune system
And more …. Many people come for a massage for the pure feeling of calmness and relaxation and to help them completely let go.
When I do massage treatments they may vary depending on what you need.
I use various techniques including deep tissue, no hands massage and Swedish massage.
Deep Tissue massage is similar to Swedish massge but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deeper layers of muscle, tendons and fascia. The movements are slower and deeper and I concentrate on areas of tension and pain to help release any tightness. I may use finger tips, knuckles, hands, elbows and forearms in your massage treatment.
One massage treatment can help but a series of treatments will have a more powerful effect and give long term benefits.
I also offer pregnancy massage which is very nurturing and helps with relaxation which is so important during this time.
