Holistic Massage

Holistic massage combines a number of techniques to provide a range of ways to work with the body including deep tissue, Swedish, acupressure points, advanced relaxation, compression.. These techniques are applied intuitively and sensitively, working with the individual’s own responses and their body as a whole. Holistic massage works with your nervous system to achieve the best outcome. I use a range of advanced techniques, including “no hands” deep tissue (sensitive deep tissue work) deep tissue stretches, joint mobilisation, rocking/percussive work, direct myofascial release and targeted muscle work.

Myofascial Release

Fascia is a continuous web of tissue which encases and holds every organ, muscle, bone, nerve, artery, connecting and protecting all the body's tissues and organs. The main components of fascia; elastin and collagen, are very strong but flexible, allowing us to move freely without restriction. You can see fascia harden in scars, this can also happen inside the body from trauma, poor demands on posture or chronic and enduring tension. Fascia is very sensitive and has more nerves than muscle. Myofascial release is a specialised therapy that uses gentle sustained pressure to feel into the fascia and apply the appropriate pressure to soften restrictions and gently realign the body . No oil is used so that the therapist can feel into the tissue barrier, apply pressure, wait for it to soften and encourage the fascia to release. During treatment you may feel a melting sensation as the tissues release, stretching or opening up, or a sense of letting go. It may also bring up emotions or memories., and help to release trauma held in the body. Please click here for further reading and resources about this beautiful amazing organ.

Tailored massage with the focus on deep tissue. Techniques are used to prepare the body for deeper work, stretches, mobilisation and percussion. I use "no hands" soft deep tissue techniques using the forearm, elbow and ulna, sensitively listening to the body and sinking in to what I'm feeling. Pressure is adapted according to your feedback verbal or your physical responses. Through consulation we can decide on focus areas and tailor the massage to your specific requirements and time.

Scalp Massage

Regular scalp massage can have multiple benefits. It can condition the scalp, helping to prevent flakes and dry, itchy scalp, and it helps enhance blood circulation in the head and neck area. Help strengthen the roots of the hair and nourish the hair-shafts, promoting new hair growth and strengthening existing hair.

Myofascial Facial

I use a blend of MFR and massage for these treatments as I feel they are the most beneficial and provide a gentle way to work into acupressure points. Release tension in face muscles and release fascia restrictions to improve circulation and stimulate lymph flow. Lift muscles, smooth skin and increase glow, most importantly balance emotions.
