Soul Haven - Massage Services
Massage is simply the manipulation of the soft tissue of the body – the muscles, tendons and ligaments. The word massage came from the Greek word ‘Massein’, meaning ‘to knead’ or the Arabic word ‘Mas’h’, meaning ‘to press softly’.
Massage is the oldest form of physical medicine known to man and can be traced back to the early Chinese medical manuscripts around 400BC. Massage can improve circulation, aid digestion, helps insomnia, alleviates migraines and helps to reduce blood pressure.
Massage relaxes tense muscles and tight connective tissue which restricts blood flow. It is for this reason that massage helps reduce emotional tension, induces relaxation and calms stress-related cardio-vascular conditions.
Today, massage therapy is one of the fastest growing forces in the field of health care and there are many types of massage available. At Soul haven, we offer the following techniques.
Deep Tissue Massage:
The body remembers everything that we have ever experienced in our lives. All of our joy and all of our pain is remembered and unconsciously stored in the body’s organic mind. Where you have not been able to release or resolve stress, you internalise it in the body.
The memories of these experiences can then crystallise in the tissue in many ways, such as:
These body memories, that are often outside of your awareness, influence your thinking, your emotions and behaviour. They limit your capacity to give and receive love, to trust in your own judgment, or to easily step into new situations and to take up new projects.
- Muscular tightness
- Body pains
- Inhibited breathing
Deep Tissue is of benefit to every ‘body’. It can be seen as part of one’s health management, with Deep Tissue Massage inviting an:
By releasing unconscious memories from the body, it is helping you to be more open to your self and others. You can move through life with less fear when you are relaxed and stress free and you can experience a greater sense of connection with the deepest part of your being.
- Increased flow of energy
- Greater capacity for movement
- Improved feeling of well-being
- Ability to perform physically and mentally at a much higher level
A smooth, flowing style that promotes general relaxation, improves circulation and range of movement. Relaxation massage also relieves muscular tension. This massage last for 70 minutes, which includes feet, hands and head.
Reiki / Bodywork Massage:
This is a deep bodywork massage which incorporates Reiki Energetic Healing techniques for those who enjoy the touch sensation at the same time.
Our bodies store cellular memory in our tissue and bones that often keep us from restful sleep patterns, painful stored emotional baggage, stress and of course physical tension. This technique is designed to relax your mind and body and also bring to the surface anything that you may not be facing mentally or emotionally.
We intuitively listen to your body’s needs as each person is unique. Each session differs, depending on what you are experiencing at the time. Allow 1.5 – 2 Hours.
Aromatherapy massage is massage therapy but with highly concentrated plant oils, called essential oils, added to the massage oil or lotion.
The nostrils are attached to a part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones. When you inhale essential oil molecules, messages are transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion, and the immune system.
Essential oils are also believed to be absorbed through the skin, with each essential oil having different healing properties. For example, some calm while others energize.
Here are some widely used essential oils and their properties:
calming – chamomile, lavender, geranium
uplifting – ylang ylang, clary sage, rose, neroli
energizing – rosemary
cleansing – rosemary
decongesting – eucalyptus, pine, tea tree
Aromatherapy massage is particularly suited to conditions involving stress or improving emotionally-related conditions, such as:
- Stress and stress-related conditions such as insomnia
- Digestive disorders
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Back pain
