Although the origins of massage can be traced back to ancient Chinese and Indian civilization of 3,000 BC, the most commonly used method in the West known as Swedish massages was formulated in Stockholm by Dr Peter Ling in the early 19th century. Swedish massage is extremely relaxing, joints particularly those of the limbs are manipulated and gently stretched.
In addition to Swedish I have studied many other massage styles, these styles I blend to offer you something more individual, than pure Swedish Massage alone. These include Deep tissue massage, Hand-free massage, the long flowing movements of Hawaiian Lomi- Lomi massage and the excellent deep and stretching Thai-table, Advanced Massage (deep tissue) and various head and hand massage courses. I feel all of these allow me to provide you with a more tailored experience whether you want to relax or needing some deeper work.
Many people experience tight Hamstring and Gluteal muscles and possibly problems with the Sciatic nerve, also the Gastocnemius (Calves) I find the Hand-free and Thai table techniques particularly useful in these area.
This is a full body massage, however any area of the body can be omitted if you wish, this could be due to an injury or purely personal preference. Likewise more time can be spent on a specific region of the body if you feel that is where you need more attention.......or maybe you just enjoy be massaged in a certain areas more, you don't really need a reason, this is your time so relax, enjoy and let go ! I use therapeutic massage oils and waxes (unscented products are available should you prefer).
Before we commence I will ask you what you want from the massage and the level of pressure whether you prefer a deeper massage with some stretching to the muscles to help with nagging aches and muscular knots. Or maybe a lighter massage more sensual to help you relax and aid relief from your busy day and leave you feeling de-stressed. This is is your time, it's tailored to your requirements, so please feel free to let me know your preferences.
Prior to the commencement of the massage I will ask you to complete and sign a short consultation form, this is so i am aware of any contraindications. This treatment lasts at least 60mins and the rate is £40.00 . 90 and 30 mins massages are available upon request priced at £60.00 and £20.00 respectively.
NB .PLEASE NOTE I CAN NOT MASSAGE CLIENTS WHO 120KG(19 STONE) AND ABOVE, I AM NOT INSURED OVER THIS BODY WEIGHT.
