Holistic or Remedial Massage

Holistic or Remedial Massage is a well-known form of bodywork, for inducing relaxation to the entire body. As with other forms of massage, Holistic massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension. Various massage strokes warm up the muscle tissue, releasing tension and gradually breaking up muscle “knots” or adhesions.

Changes in physical condition affect the mental and emotional state, and vice versa. Muscular aches and pains can disturb concentration, and anxiety causes muscle tension that interferes with fluid or graceful movement. Due to the link with the emotional centres of the brain, the effect of Essential Oils can leave an impression for a lifetime.

Clients can choose essential oils are naturally energizing, invigorating, rejuvenating or calming and relaxing. Alternatively you may choose oils that have analgesic qualities, which can focus on flushing the muscles of waste products, to prevent swelling and pain.

Essential oils can be a supportive measure in a weight management. Essential oils can support proper liver, kidney, thyroid and endocrine system functions. Detoxification will assist in speeding up the metabolism, balancing in the body. Personal weight management blends can be made with essential oils that have diuretic, appetite suppressant, digestive, detoxifying, and anti-depressant qualities. A lot of times we eat when we are stressed, anxious, or bored.

 

Deep Tissue Massage 

The main focus of Deep Tissue Massage is to help alleviate the physical stress within specific muscle groups around the clients’ skeletal body and to enhance performance. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a keen gardener. Deep Tissue Massage causes the pores in tissue membranes to open up, enabling fluids and nutrients to pass through. This helps remove waste products such as lactic acid and encourage the muscles to recover quicker.

Deep Tissue Massage works towards the maintenance that muscles need and improves performance by reducing the risk of injury for athletes during their training or sports events. The focus of treatment areas would depend on the client’s requirement (e.g. acute or chronic injury, relief of inflammation or swelling from injury, restoration of tight muscles).
