therapeutic massage

Massage therapy can help to relax and ease aches and pains. This is achieved through an oil medium and a combination of different massage techniques. Massage is particularly good at relaxing muscles and can work as an adjunct to physiotherapy to:

  • Relieve pain eg headaches and back pain
  • Relieve tension and stress
  • Promote recovery from injury
  • Improve joint mobility
  • Improve blood and lymph circulation

reflexology

Reflexology is based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, side and top of the feet are connected to corresponding areas throughout the body. Stimulation of these areas bring about balance and easing of pain. This is achieved by a gentle pressure point massage of the feet. Only shoes and socks need to be removed. Situations where reflexology may be used to help clients:

  • Stress reduction
  • Pain management
  • Irritable Bowel Symptoms
  • PMT, menstrual and menopausal problems
  • Migraine
  • Insomnia
  • Improving circulation

aromatherapy

Aromatherapy uses the power of essential oils, natural extracts from plants, to promote physical and emotional wellbeing. Combining the oils with a massage treatment maximises the effects of the oils as they can harmonise their effects via absorption through the skin and by the aromas being inhaled during the treatment. The benefits of aromatherapy can be summarised as:

  • Relief of stress and tension
  • Balancing of hormones
  • Ease of muscular aches and pains
  • Aiding sleep
  • Promoting recovery from injury
