Holistic massage is an individual treatment that is specifically tailored to each client. A holistic practitioner treats the client as a whole, taking into account their emotional and spiritual wellbeing, as well as their physical body.
Massage techniques can range from subtle energy work to deep tissue methods; from dynamic mobilizations to gentle holds. Flexibility in applying this knowledge is paramount since their appropriateness must be determined by the client’s particular needs.
Every treatment is unique providing a creative opportunity for the practitioner to adapt to the given situation. This involves a variety of techniques designed to relax muscles, increase oxygen in the blood and release toxins from muscles. Stroking in the direction of the heart stimulates circulation and flushes the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes, all of which help shorten recovery time after muscle strain. As well as providing specific medical benefits, holistic massage improves general health and wellbeing.
About your treatment
Your therapist will take a case history and create a treatment that is unique to your needs.
It’s important to tell your therapist if you have a nut or other allergy, any medical condition or if you are pregnant.
Massage is a cumulative therapy; an individual session can be very beneficial but for help with specific problems, or as a preventative treatment, regular sessions are recommended.
