"Let your body & soul take time out"

HOLISTIC, DEEP TISSUE AND MYOFASCIAL RELEASE MASSAGE

 

Holistic massage benefits both your mind and your body. It is rare that we take an hour to lie down, close our eyes and just ‘be’ so when you visit my Wymondham, South Norfolk based, therapy room I will do my utmost to ensure that relaxation is what you get during your session. Holistic massage concentrates on you as a whole person.  It does not just work on muscular and joint disorders but considers underlying causes of a problem by looking at aspects of your lifestyle, such as your diet and exercise patterns, that may contribute to any physical symptoms you are experiencing.



 

How might Holistic Massage help me?

 

Massage may help you deal with all sorts of emotional and physical problems or just give you a chance to chill out. It may help you relax, improve sleep,  release tension, improve your mood and increase your overall well being.  It is not a substitute for medcial advice and does not cure illnesses but it can support you through an illness or difficult time.  The benefits can be felt by all ages, backgrounds and lifestyles.  This massage is ideal for those who prefer a light to medium pressure massage. 



 

How might Deep Tissue Massage help me?

 

Deep tissue massage aims to break down chronic muscle tension by using a much deeper pressure and is ideal for those who like a firm pressure.  I use a variety of techniques involving my forearms, elbows and fists to break down muscle tension and relieve painful, tight, areas.  The movements are slower and more concentrated on painful areas than holistic massage in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).   At certain points in this massage most people will feel some degree of pain and discomfort.  You will be encouraged to give me feedback so that this pain is never outside your comfort range.



 

How might Myofascial Release Massage help me?

 

Myofascial Release massage (MFR) focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness by using sustained gentle pressure and stretches.  Many seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury such as whiplash or if experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, hip, or virtually pain in any area containing soft tissue.  It may also be helpful for conditions like ME and fibromyalgia. 

I hold the gentle pressure and each stretch for 5 minutes to release areas of tension and blockages so that muscles can move again. By holding the stretches for 5 minutes the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles) is encouraged to 'remember' and keep its new position.  Specific muscle rolling and finger/thumb movements break down the adhesions/knots in the fascia to bring relief.  Many people may experience extended tingling feelings in areas treated and it is normal for the skin to become very red during and after treatment as blood circulation is encouraged in to the damaged tissue.  If you find deep tissue too painful but have a chronic condition then MFR may be worth considering.  This massage uses no oils, creams or lotions.      



 

What will happen during my massage?

 

At our first consultation I will ask you to complete a consultation form covering your health and lifestyle so that I can put together a your profile and ensure your massage suits you.  If necessary you will be asked to obtain your medical professional's permission to receive a massage.  I will ensure you know what will happen and give you instructions about clothing to remove and how to cover yourself with sarongs.  Only the part of your body I am massaging will be uncovered.

 

Tui massage waxI’ll devise a therapy plan just for you and keep a note of each session to monitor your progress.  You will be massaged with your choice of Tui massage wax a unique blend of beeswax and natural ingredients for a supreme massage experience - or a pure natural oil such as sweet almond or grapeseed.
