Remedial and Sports Massage

Remedial or Sports Massage involves the use of traditional Swedish Massage (see below). It includes a wide range of diagnostic techniques and a range of deeper pressures and moves. This method can treat specific conditions. It is also good for general tension and muscle adhesion also known as “knots”.

Remedial Massage can be helpful in treating specific areas of muscle tension caused by stress or injury. The therapy also helps to get the blood flowing to injured tissue, which speeds up the repair process. Remedial Massage can also be relaxing and used for general well being.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy works on our sense of smell as well as absorption into the bloodstream. About 15% of the air we inhale goes to the roof of the nose. This is where olfactory receptors transport odors to a part of the brain called the limbic system. This area is connected with instinct, moods, and emotions. It is believed that Aromatherapy may stimulate the release of chemicals that play a part in unlocking emotions through association.

A tailor-made blend of essential oils can be blended to suit your individual emotional and physical conditions. In conjunction with massage, the pressure of the effleurage (stroking) penetrates the micro molecules of the oils through the skin and into the bloodstream. This allows the therapeutic effects of the oils to work quicker and more effectively.

Indian Head Massage

An Indian Head Massage treatment is performed while you are seated and there is no need to remove any clothing. A variety of massage techniques are used. These include fictions, kneading and soothing on the shoulders, upper arms, and neck as well as the head. This is because these areas are typically tense due to stress or the postural effects of working at a desk for long periods. Relief from headaches and migraines are one of the many benefits of Indian Head Massage.
