Therapeutic and Remedial Massage
Remedial massage is a holistic treatment; that is, a treatment
for the whole of the body, as well as the area being treated. The
primary aim of Remedial Massage is to find and treat the cause of
the disorder, not only the symptoms. A remedial massage therapist
studies anatomy, physiology, related pathology and the techniques
of Swedish massage, heat and cold therapies, kinesthetics and many
other related fields.
The energy which flows through the hands can refresh, regenerate
and revitalise. Massage brings about beneficial physical and psychological
changes and restores balance to the body as a whole.
The Effects of Remedial Massage

lifestyle, i.e. jobs, sport, age, eating and drinking habits, dress,
posture, relevant hobbies, medical history etc. This information.
combined with a full examination, helps the Remedial Massage therapist
to determine the relevant application of treatment.

about the process of healing. It is one of the most effective and

Hot Stone Massage
Stone massage is a unique connection we experience with nature,
offering a sense of profoundness and sacredness that we too often
forget. It's a deep healing and unique moment that enhances our
awareness and brings us closer to our true essence. It is the perfect
treatment that is as enjoyable and healing for the client as it
is for the practitioner.
Stone massage involves the application of water-heated basalt stones
of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving a deep massage
and creating sensations of comfort and warmth. The direct heat relaxes
muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with
Stone massage is deeply relaxing, utilising the penetrating heat
from the basalt stones alternating with the toning and refreshing
coolness of the marble stones. The use of extremes of temperature
has long been scientifically and medically proven to be of benefit
to the body. Those who wish to relax and tone their muscles with
a minimum of effort see this in the use of ice packs for muscle
trauma and the use of saunas.
In cases of muscular injury and inflammation, frozen, cooling marble
stones are used. This creates a type of thermo-therapeutic 'vascular
gymnastics' in the circulatory system to help the body detoxify
and heal. The warmer stones expand the blood vessels, pushing blood
and unwanted waste materials through the body. This has a sedative
effect on the nervous system. The cold stones cause the blood vessels
to constrict, stimulating the nervous system and drawing blood and
waste products along the body.
This ensures that every cell in the body receives more oxygen and
nutrients while at the same time waste material is removed more
effectively through the corresponding increase in lymph flow. Not
unlike changing the old oil and filter in your car for a newer filter
with clean oil—a service for the body.
Stone massage makes you feel deeply relaxed, allowing you to let
go of all the stress that is held within your body.
