To have regular Remedial Massage Therapy is now not as unusual as it was 15 years ago. When I first studied massage I got plenty of cheeky quips and sideways glances from friends when I mentioned I was pursuing a career in the industry.
But I loved the idea of healing, releasing and relaxing the body through touch, and most of all massage, reflexology, Ayurveda and yoga had restored my health when conventional medicine couldn’t. And so began my passion for Natural Therapies.
Thankfully many people are now familiar with the physical benefits of massage- relaxing tight muscles, increasing circulation and mobility and reducing pain and stress, just to name a few. These are usually the reasons why clients initially seek out massage treatment, which is a great place to start.
What people may not be aware of is that the physical benefits are just the beginning, and this is where Wholistic Massage differs from a Remedial Massage treatment. It takes into consideration your whole being, and provides a peaceful atmosphere allowing you to step away from demands of life and truly unwind. The various techniques I use include deep tissue, reflexology, cupping, dry needling and acupressure to treat the body, while subtle energy balancing calms and restores vitality to the energy body, in a similar way as the massage does on the physical level.
The meditative stillness of a session can increase awareness, restore clarity, or provide a creative solution to a problem, many times at the end of their session, clients have shared with me insights and realisations that they’ve had during the treatment which arose because they were able to be still enough to allow the wisdom to arise in their consciousness.
You only have one body and its health effects your whole life experience, if you’re interested in developing a more wholistic relationship with your body, mind and spirit I’d love to work with you.
