Holistic massage focuses on the individual as a whole, rather than on physical symptoms alone. It is a full body treatment (including head, face, hands and feet) that works to solve the root of the problem and not simply the manifesting symptoms. The aim is to restore wholeness, balance and health to the emotions, mind and spirit as well as the physical body.
Indian Head Massage
The aim of Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders.
“Reiki” (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy, and is also a word used to describe a system of natural healing. The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas.
Deep Tissue Massage/Sports Massage
Deep tissue massage uses a slow deep pressure that focuses on specific parts of the body to relax and release areas of tension. Through this, the deeper layers of muscle fibres are realigned, bringing balance to the body and allowing natural movement and function.
Acupressure massage is a deep and strong massage based upon manipulating and releasing pressure points, meridians and the lymphatic system to improve the flow of energy through the physical and subtle bodies, leaving you feeling vibrant, stress free and relaxed.
Thai massage is an ancient holistic therapy, described by some as ‘yoga for lazy people’, which promotes wellness and vitality, helping you to restore a greater sense of balance, flexibility and well-being. A unique combination of gentle stretching and palm and thumb pressure is used to activate the energy lines and release tension in the body and mind.
Shiatsu therapists also use thumbs, palms, heels of hands, forearms etc to apply the appropriate amount of pressure to the client receiving treatment.Other techniques are utilised in a shiatsu treatment according to the needs of the client and include working with the breath, stretches, holding, support, movement and articulation of joints, manipulation of muscular tissue and fascia.
