INTUITIVE HOLISTIC MASSAGE TO SUPPORT WOMEN THROUGH LIFE
Women lead busy lives and have demands placed upon them from every angle. These demands can come from work, family, friends, as well as from their own bodies and minds. The stress caused by these demands can accumulate and become trapped within the body leading to aches and pains, anxiety, a feeling of being overwhelmed, tension headaches, difficulty sleeping and a weakened immune system.
Relaxation and Deep Tissue Massage can:
release these trapped tensions in the body by relaxing tight muscles which cause pain and and stress on other muscles;
help the body to remove the lactic acid trapped between muscle fibres caused by exercise. A build-up of lactic acid can cause muscle pain and stiffness;
stimulate the flow of blood to damaged muscles and connective tissues, enabling their repair;
help the body and mind move from stress to relaxation, enabling them to switch off the damaging stress hormones which can suppress the immune system, and switch on the rejuvenating feel-good hormones;
improve posture. By supporting muscles health and connective tissue and through stretches and mobilisation, the body can regain movement in areas which have become stiff;
help you to feel nurtured and cared for. The skin is the body's largest sense organ, which means the nurturing touch provided by massage can have a powerful effect on both body and mind.
Holistic massage is essentially massage which cares for your body and your mind. With a bit of discussion just before the massage we can decide what would be the best possible massage to support your whole self at that time
You may want a completely relaxing massage to help you unwind from the stresses of daily life or You may want a deeper massage on and around a specific area which is causing you pain or You may want a little bit of both.
