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

At the initial consultation, your therapist will ask about your 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.

Remedial massage has short and long term effects on the body, bringing about the process of healing. It is one of the most effective and natural treatments for stress related conditions.

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 regular massage.

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.
