“Holistic” comes from the Greek word meaning whole. Holistic massage is a therapeutic massage that affects the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of the body.
Emotional, mental and physical tension is stored in the muscle tissue, and skilled massage applied to the soft tissue encourages the muscular and nervous systems to relax, helping release stress and tension. The muscular, nervous, skeletal and circulatory systems are assisted to work harmoniously, which also acts as a preventative/maintenance to wellness. Waste products (toxins and metabolites) caught in the muscle tissue are eliminated quicker. Massage has a subtle yet profound influence on all the systems of the body, as it encourages and supports the body’s own healing powers.
A treatment may include the use of pre-blended aromatherapy oils along with techniques such as effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (tapping), friction and pressure and energy balancing (Reiki).
I will tailor the massage to your individual needs and can focus on the areas where there is most tightness and tension as well as the whole body if required. This can include legs, arms, neck, abdomen, shoulders, neck, head and face.
