The Benefits of Massage

  • I am comfortable with clients wearing as much or as little as they wish during a massage session. Some clients are simply uncomfortable even partially undressed while others prefer to be completely without clothes or even towels. I can adapt my style to your preference, but ...

  • Benefits of Relaxation Massage

  • This massage is for relaxation, de-stressing, and handling general aches, pains and discomfort as well as emotional release.

  • Improved Sleep
    Insufficient sleep is often associated with some sort of pain (muscular or skeletal) or stress (work or environment) or any number of chronic diseases and conditions, that threaten health. Massage reduces pain and discomfort from a whole group of conditions allowing better sleep patterns and greater ability for the body to recuperate.

  • More Energy
    A regular hour or, hour and a half, of massage helps reduce fatigue and gives you more energy to handle stressful situations and circumstances. Experts suggest that 80 to 90 percent of disease is stress-related.

  • Better Concentration
    Poor concentration as one ages (40 onward) usually derives from trying to concentrate within a noisy or disruptive environment. As you get older it becomes more difficult. Massage reduces muscle tension, relieves pain, improves circulation, reduces vulnerability to infection, improves sleep and releases endorphins all of which aid you in concentrating and being calmer under stress.

  • Better Handling of Life Stresses
    Massage has become a big part of many of my clients lives. They find that a regular relaxation massage helps to handle the turbulance of our modern lives. The way we live can leave us exhausted and worried. Regular massage helps them take time for themselves with added benefits.

  • Greater Flexibility and Range of Motion
    Passive stretching of muscles helps to recover full range of movement within joints even after protective patterns have been in place for some time.

  • Improved Skin Condition
    When fresh blood is brought to your skin it glows with positive health. You look and feel fresher. Improved circulation allows the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into skin, tissues and vital organs, as well as removing waste products from the skin cells. More oxygen means healthier more flexible skin through production of sebum (our natural moisturiser) and a proper acidity to the skin for protection from germ invasion.

  • Greater Resistance to Infection and Illness
    Better circulation is not only involved in pumping blood round the body but also in eliminating waste products. Fatty acids build up with work and exercise and need to be flushed through the system. Those molecules that are to big to pass into the blood stream are sent back via the lymphatic system. This system benefits greatly from the stimulation that massage provides and aids the cleansing between cells all over the body, removing and processing invading disease. Good lymphatic drainage also aids tired muscles in recovery.

  • Well-being and Vitality
    The feeling of pleasure and relaxation received from massage aids the whole body in feeling more energetic. Muscles move better, joints work more smoothly, aches and pains reduce all leaving you feeling revitalised all over. Sleep can improve and headaches reduce with the resulting feeling of well-being making you feel quite different, relaxed and happier.

  • The Benefits of Advanced Clinical Massage

  • As well as the above additional benefits can be:

  • Faster recovery from injury
    Recovery from injury is brought about by increased blood-flow, stimulating lymphatic drainage and gentle passive exercise of body parts it may be too painful to move by yourself.

  • Greater Resistance to Illnesses
    Manipulating the soft tissues improves the drainage of the lymphatic system. This is a network of lymph vessels, lymph nodes and lymph. The primary function of which is to transport lymph, a colourless fluid containing white blood cells, that helps rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. Massage aids the function of the lymphatic system to clear these away making possible recovery from illness faster and increasing your resistance to ailments.

  • Faster recovery after operations
    Pre- and post-operation massage greatly improves the amount of time taken to recover from surgery by the means described above. It can also help to reduce scarring as the fibres that have been invaded knit together more quickly with gentle massage. A small amount of stretching and massage keeps circulation working properly whilst convalesing speeding up recovery.

  • Greater flexibility and range of motion
    Passive stretching of muscles helps to recover full range of movement within joints even after protective patterns have been in place for some time.
