Mindful massage

With over seventy five percent of illness manifested in the mind and body caused by day-to-day stress, we are always searching for something to help bring back balance in the body. Mindful massage is one of many treatments and most asked for treatment to help maintain homeostasis in the body.

With our hectic lifestyles sometimes it is hard to stop for a moment, we rush around totally unaware that we are stimulating the sympathetic nervous system. This constant state causes all sorts of problems in our mind and body such as Anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, IBS as our digestion switches off and over stimulation of adrenalin which causes an imbalance of hormones.

Mindful massage is a Holistic massage, a Greek word meaning ‘whole’ as in a person’s mind, body and spirit. With this massage, the client gets to talk about their ailments and we look at the cause through the mind body connection. This is called metaphysical causations where every pain and ache is trying to speak to us through our manifestation of illness caused by suppressing emotions. This massage treatment with the use of warm towels, hot oil, soft lighting and relaxing music creates a sense of warmth and a safe space for your one hour treatment.

Hot stone massage

With the use of volcanic basalt hot stones, this is a deeply relaxing massage which uses the stones as an extension of the therapist’s hands. It uses long deep soothing strokes to relax the mind and body thus stimulating the opposite of the sympathetic nervous system, known as the parasympathetic nervous system. This system can only kick in during sleep or rest.

If you suffer from insomnia or have a racing mind then this may cause havoc with your digestion, headaches or irritability and have a knock-on effect in your daily life.

The heat of the stones gives the mind and body a sense of nurturing and relaxation.

Indian head massage

With so many of us using the computer for eight hours a day with our shoulders slightly rounded, driving in hectic traffic or carrying the worries of the world on our shoulders, we tend to manifest knots of tension across the shoulders which can lead to eyestrain and headaches that we just get used to living with.

In an Indian head, the client is seated in a chair and the therapist will warm up the area and then squeeze, ease and disperse the tension otherwise known as lactic acid in the body.

The client usually feels lighter around the shoulders and has much more movement around the neck and shoulder area. Clients also feel they can breathe more easily allowing more oxygen into the body.

Our bodies are amazing and if we only make time and receive nurturing it can bring about its own healing. This is where receiving a Holistic massage is so beneficial , the parasympathetic nervous system totally relates to the power of touch , the soothing strokes all over the body relays messages to the brain to relax and switch into the healing mode where the cells in the body get to heal and repair.

The beauty of massage is that after that first stroke whether it’s the feet or head this creates a reflex action like a wave of relaxation, some clients say simply lying on the bed with the warm towels has helped them relax.
