What type of massage is best for me?
The purpose of Remedial massage therapy is to increase the blood flow, locate and repair damaged tissues and support the body’s own repair mechanisms. Specialist strokes and movements aim to support the affected areas, and allow the healing process to take place. Regular massage will not only ease tension pain and joint stiffness, it helps stimulate the cardiovascular system, detox the body and improves your immune function. Remedial massage is firm and thorough; the therapist will assess you, then apply appropriate techniques including remedial and deep tissue massage, trigger points or acupressure points, treatment may including passive stretching. Remedial Therapists have an intensive 18 month full time study including 110 hours of clinical training.
This type of massage is designed to relax muscles by applying soft but firm pressure to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. This massage will aid recovery from muscular strain by flushing out lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes, from the tissues. It will increase circulation without increasing heart rate, and stretch the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. Swedish massage also stimulates the skin and soothes the nerves to reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is often encouraged as a regular program for stress management.
Prenatal Massage is specially designed to support and nurture pregnant women and their changing bodies. Prenatal Massage will ease aches and pains, relax muscles, improve circulation, reduce swelling in hands and feet, and relieve fatigue. Women lie on their back or front supported with pillows if during the early stages of pregnancy. When this becomes uncomfortable women lie semi reclined for face up work and on their side supported by pillows for deep relaxing massage.
Pregnancy causes changes your posture and centre of gravity. This puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy also relaxes your ligaments, so that your pelvic joints are less stable, and your pelvis may shift and forward. The extra weight you’re carrying plus postural shifts often cause aching lower back, neck and shoulders. Our trained prenatal massage therapists know where a pregnant woman’s sore spots are likely to be. Prenatal massage treatment is also deeply relaxing and calms the body and mind. Acupressure massage can also help to induce labour when women are full term.
Acupressure massage uses the Chinese meridian system to balance the bodies energy. Instead of using needles acupressure uses pressure applied by the practitioner on the acupuncture points. The practitioner may also use electrical stimulation similar to TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). Acupressure is often used to stimulate labour when the pregnancy is at full term.
This is an ancient Indian relaxing and balancing massage treatment according to individual requirements. An Ayurvedic practitioner will assess each person’s body type or Dosha (Prakriti) and determine the current imbalance (Vikriti). There are a range of Herbal treatments to harmonize the body and mind. Ayurvedic Massage firstly relaxes the muscles with a soothing massage, then stimulates marma points (similar to acupuncture) to work deeper. Ayurvedic medicated herbal oils and essences balance and correct the Dosha’s. This type of massage nourishes the body and stimulates inner resources for self healing to restore or maintain health.
It is believed that scent has the power to transform our emotions and heal our bodies. Using the wonderful healing properties of essential oils, individual blends are prepared by the practitioner and applied to the body through a light relaxation massage. Useful in treating many conditions such as, insomnia, anxiety, chronic fatigue.
