Benefits of Remedial Massage
- Good massage techniques are a wonderful way of releasing trigger points, stretching and elongating muscles and breaking down adhesions.
- Remedial Massage therapists focus on areas that are stiff, injured or in discomfort.
- By increasing the blood flow to the tissues and releasing the tension, massage not only helps alleviate the pain, but can also help eliminate toxins, reduce both emotional and physical stress, increase levels of mental clarity and alertness. In addition, massage increases circulation and improves lymphatic drainage, which provide a boost to the immune system’s effectiveness.
Ayurvedic Massage with Leanne Moore
Ayurvedic Full Body Massage (Abhyanga)
A sublime full body massage from India that honours your individuality. Each massage will vary according to specific needs..... There is a focus on bringing all the qualities an individual requires for balance in life. For some, the style of massage will be nurturing, grounding, calm, warm and tranquil. For others, it may be stimulating and vigorous. Others may need a light, soothing and cooling touch. The herbal oils will also vary from person to person and from season to season.
Strength, stamina, health and vitality can be achieved through regular Ayurvedic massage. Abhyanga improves blood and lymphatic flow, loosens tight muscles, cleanses and vitalises the internal organs and calms the mind and nervous system, soothing away anxieties and suppressed emotions.
Massage for Muscular Skeletal Pain Relief (Basti)
A specific Ayurvedic treatment to relieve muscular-skeletal pain, stiffness and lack of mobility. During a basti treatment medicated herbal oils are warmed and poured into a receptacle over the site of the pain or stiffness. These oils penetrate deeply into the tissues, softening and loosening tight muscles and joints. A specialised massage is then applied. Hot herbal compresses complete the treatment.
It is an effective treatment for sciatica, frozen shoulder; tennis elbow; pain in the knees, lower back, neck, mid back and shoulder and to release emotional holding.
Ayurvedic Hand, Foot and Head Massage
(Hastabhyanga, Padabhyanga and Shirobhyanga)
Ayurveda supports the notion that the whole body is reflected in the feet, hands and head. It is believed that regular foot massage will balance and cleanse the internal organs and soothe an agitated mind. The nervous system is soothed, the body and mind grounded, anxiety and insomnia relieved. The hand massage vitalises the whole being and balances the five elements through the fingertips. These elements of fire, air, water, ether and earth play and integral role in our health and healing according to Ayurvedic healing traditions. Ayurvedic head massage relieves tension through the neck and shoulders, calms and strengthens the brain and expands consciousness.
Padabhyanga, hastabhyanga and shirobhyanga has a focus on promoting a harmonious flow of vital life energy (or prana) through the marmas of the feet, hands and head. The marmas are vital life energy centres that strengthen organs and body functions and can assist in alleviating diseases and imbalances.

Reflexology with Leanne Moore
Reflexology is a deeply relaxing treatment that soothes an agitated mind, calms the emotions and balances the whole being.
In reflexology the feet are the focus. Yet there is more to a reflexology session that just the feet. The feet hold a map of the whole being. So the organs, the glands, the tissues are reflected upon the feet, neatly packaged anatomically just as in the body.
By easing tension, tightness and tenderness from the feet we can have a beneficial effect upon the body. We are able to enhance the flow of prana (vital life energy) through every organ, each gland and the tissues in the body. Reflexology enhances circulation and improves the flow of lymphatics in the body. With enhanced pranic flow, the mind and emotions are soothed. A deep sense of relaxation is experienced.
Reflexology can easily become a self help tool for wellbeing. After a reflexology session I provide individualised reflexology maps for self treatment.
Thousands of documented case studies have demonstrated benefits for such conditions as PMT, migraine, sinus, menopause, back pain, neck pain, sciatica, asthma, tinnitus, stroke and menstrual irregularities.
