What is is?
Holistic massage looks at your whole body: muscles, posture, emotion, body tension, digestion, respiration and energy.
The aim is to work with you, the client, to facilitate a healing environment, for your body and energy to balance and to re-engage to relax.
The whole session is controlled by the needs you want to be addressed, and how you want to feel at the end of it.
What happens in the massage?
At the start we have a consultation, this will help to guide us on how you would like your massage, and areas that need looking into. This also includes information we, as practitioners, need to be aware of, for example, medical conditions and medication, as this could effect depth and style of the massage.
What to Expect
What to wear:
We recommend to wear comfortable underwear for this treatment. You will be covered by a towel during the treatment.
We can do this fully clothed, and this can be done on a chair.
It's all about you:
Once you are happy with the treatment, you will then be asked to remove any jewellery from the massage area (if possible). You undress in privacy to a level that you feel comfortable. we can massage with you fully clothed if that makes you feel more comfortable, but it may effect the style of the massage.
You can then slide under the soft comfy sheets, to find a position you are comfortable in.
When you are ready, a therapist will come back in and the massage will start.
There are often a variety of movements, strokes and styles of massage, to help balance your body. Holds and stretches are used to help activate your mind to areas we are working on.
This treatment can be quite interactive, if you prefer complete silence then a relaxation massage could be more what you are looking for.
When finished the therapist will leave the room and allow you to revive and get dressed in privacy.
What if you want a deeper or softer massage?
This massage is all about you and your comfort. You are encouraged to let me know if you want something changed and also the therapist will ask your permission if they feel the treatment plan needs to be altered to get the best benefit for you and your massage.
