Massage  is a natural and instinctive means to relieve pain.  The use of massage was recorded in China as early as 3000 BC.  The unique feature of holistic massage is that it emphasises the importance of the “wholeness” of the client in the relationship between body, mind, spirit and emotion.


There has been a marked increase in stress related illness such as irritable bowel syndrome, high blood pressure, insomnia, headaches and stomach ulcers.  Most people work in competitive environments with many potential stress inducing features such as poor posture, computers, mobile phones, unrealistic time schedules, insecurity of job tenure etc.  Life in Western society can be very demanding and the consequence of this is the range of disease and disorder experienced by so many today.


Approximately 60% of body weight is made up of muscle.  Massage causes the muscles to fill with oxygenated blood flow and increases circulation, which hastens the elimination of wastes and toxic build up from fatigued muscles.  Removing harmful toxins from muscles and joints increases flexibility, muscle tone and range of motion.  By using a consistent massage routine you can improve your performance, confidence and quality of life.

What to expect at your session  


On your first appointment, you will be required to complete a medical history form  which may take up to 15 minutes, please allow time for this.  Massage is a very safe and non invasive therapy; however, there may be some conditions where I will need to seek your GP’s permission to carry out the massage and in some extreme cases it may not be appropriate to massage you on that given day.  Please do not eat a large meal within 2 hours prior to a massage.


Your modesty will be protected at all times, however, you will be required to undress to underwear.  Your appointment includes undressing/dressing and talk time.


You may feel an immediate improvement although it is possible you may feel sore for up to 3 days after the session, drink plenty of water and some gentle exercise will help.
