To feel comfortable and at home in your body is one of the most important things in life. Massage therapy is one the most pleasant , and effective, ways to achieve this.
Using Swedish/Relaxation massage techniques whilst comfortably seated in a padded chair
Shiatsu (meaning finger pressure) is a Japanese technique with origins in Traditional Chinese Medicine. When we feel pain and inflexibility in the body its generally because energy and blood flow have become blocked.
A Shiatsu treatment involves body stretching and a combination of thumb, palm, knee and elbow pressure to unblock energy and blood flow which restores balance and relaxation to the body.
The treatment can be very gentle or quite robust depending on your needs and condition.
Sessions include comprehensive diagnosis and body work and are performed on a futon through your clothes.
This massage uses techniques of soft tissue manipulation and gentle stretching. I start gently to calm the nervous system, and begin to release superficial tightness. Gradually I will work more deeply into the tissues to release more deep seated tension and stress.
Relax on the massage table as healing oils are used to sooth your aches and pains. The flowing style relaxes and calms, gently soothing the mind and body.
Swedish massage will release chronic tension and pain in the muscles, improve circulation, increase flexibility in the joints, reduce mental and physical fatigue and effectively combat stress
I have been involved in body work, of different sorts, for the past 20 years and have been practicing massage for the past 12 years.
I have extensive knowledge in exercise, dietary and lifestyle strategies that will improve your well being
