Holistic Massage

This massage can help the body heal and recuperate, cope with the stresses and strains of daily life, and revitalise it following physical or emotional trauma. This is good for stress management and helps boost your immune system.

In addition it can produce hormones that are our ‘feel good’ neurotransmitters, which will enable the body to relax and calm down. By stimulating a deeply relaxed state, your body can initiate your self healing mechanism promoting wellbeing.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is a deep form of soft tissue mobilisation which can be applied in a sporting and non-sporting context. It involves a wide range of techniques and is used for general relaxation of the muscular skeletal system as well as being directed towards any problem areas. Sports massage helps relieve muscular tension, break down adhesion’s, mobilise soft tissues and reduce pain.

Who should be treated?

Although the name implies a sporting clientele, it is a massage treatment appropriate to all. Sports massages are not limited to athletes!

It is an appropriate massage treatment for anyone who needs a remedial or soft tissue mobilisation. The remedial effects of sports massage are beneficial post-surgery, alongside physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic, or as a health benefit within an office environment.

Within a sporting context, people who participate in sport can use a sports massage as a regular part of their training programme. Sports massage is also effective as a performance enhancement.

Hot Stone Massage

What is Hot Stone?

 

Becca offers Hot Stone Massage. The use of hot stones for the purpose of health and wellbeing is an age-old therapy that dates back around 2000 years. Hot stone incorporates the use of thermotherapy. This is a technique that involves the application of hot and cold temperatures to the body. Practices of this kind have been documented from as early as the 18th century. Thermotherapy involves the heating of skin and soft tissues for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction by increasing blood flow to the area (vasodilation), improving circulation and fluid dynamics thus speeding up healing and recovery.

 

Benefits of Hot Stone Therapy include:

-Alleviates muscle tension and pain

-Reduces stress and anxiety and promotes relaxation

-Improves sleep

-Boosts immune system

-Increased joint flexibility

 

Effects of Hot Stone Therapy

-Creates vasodilation of blood vessels, improving blood circulation and speeding up the recovery process.

-Stimulates lymphatic system assisting in detoxification of the body.

-Has a cleansing effect and aids elimination of waste.

 

What to expect from the treatment:

During a Hot Stone Massage Treatment, volcanic basalt stones (heated in water) are placed on specific areas of the body such as along the spine, the stomach and in between the toes. The therapist will then hold the stones as they perform traditional Swedish massage techniques to the body. The heat from the stones will work deep into the muscles to alleviate stress and tension and promote a sense of relaxation and wellbeing.

The therapist will be continually monitoring the temperature of the stones to make sure that it is comfortable for the client throughout the treatment, but client feedback is important.

Initial treatments include a thorough consultation (a phone call may be required to discuss whether the treatment is right for you) followed by either a 90 minute full body (£70) or 60 minute (£50) upper body Swedish massage.
