What is Holistic Massage?

Holistic massage takes into account a number of items and the impact they have on your body in both a positive and negative way, such as: physical symptoms, psychological, environmental and nutritional factors. This technique and style employs a combination of Swedish massage techniques, deep tissue massage, Thai yoga stretches and delicate lymphatic drainage movements.

People turn to Holistic massage for various reasons and it can be used alongside conventional medical when living with a chronic condition or simply for relaxation. Everyone responds to massage in different ways and are hoping for different outcomes, therefore, each treatment is tailored to suit your own specific needs.

Some of the positive effects of regular holistic massage can be:-​

  • Relaxation of the body, relieving tension and the effects of stress.
  • Relief from tired, sore, stiff muscles.
  • Relaxation of the mind, relieving anxiety and its effects.
  • Improved sleep, concentration
  • Increased clarity of thought & energy levels
  • Feelings of calm, well-being & balance
  • Improved immunity function & circulation
  • Improvement in physical and mental fatigue & in toxin elimination
  • It’s has an effect physically and emotionally

Holistic Massage provides you with a great opportunity to pay attention to yourself. As part of your first visit, I ask you to fill in a detailed form about your health history which allows me to build up a picture of you and your needs so that I can create the best possible session.

If you have a medical condition or take prescribed drugs it would be advisable checking with your doctor if holistic massage is suitable for you or you can sign an informed consent. I would recommend individuals that are currently suffering from a fever, diarrhoea or vomiting or those who have any contagious infection, such as athletes foot, verrucas and so on refrain from treatment until the condition has cleared.

It may also help to think about what you want to gain from your session, this can be things such as reducing muscle tension, slowing a busy mind or stimulating your energy, etc.

I recommend a course of treatments to kick start your body into action. Typically people respond well with 6 to 8 treatments. Weekly, fortnightly or monthly may be recommended. However it is entirely up to you how many sessions you have and how often you receive them.

Please note that I do not offer intimate massages.

Testimonial

 

I run a small but successful pet visiting and dog walking business. Because of the nature of my work with dogs sometimes my shoulders & neck suffer pain. Luckily I got recommended to Carmel at Northfields Chiropractic & I can say things have greatly improved. She identified my problem of tendonitis straight away & treated it with a mixture of chiropractic & deep tissue work. I can honestly say my range of neck & shoulder movements haven't felt so good as this in ages!
