Join me for a session of baby massage instruction where, in a single session, you will be shown a variety of movements to help with relaxation and colic as part of a daily or bed-time routine.  Instruction can be performed in your own home on a one-to-one basis, or with a small group.  Babies from birth to crawling can benefit from these techniques – and Dads are actively encouraged to participate too!

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage is based on the ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. The aim of Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders. It is a wonderful therapy that promotes relaxation and wellbeing.

What are the benefits?
Indian head massage is especially good for relieving stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis. Clients report that the experience is deeply calming and relaxing, leaving them feeling energised and revitalised and better able to concentrate.

Indian head massage helps increase joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders, improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow, frees knots of muscular tension, relaxes connective tissue, and aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products. It is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension.

Oriental Hand Massage

Oriental Hand Massage

Oriental Hand Massage is a wonderful massage of the hand, arms & shoulders, with an Eastern flavour. It is a fusion of Eastern Hand Massage techniques, reflexology & acupresure.

Hands contain many thousand sensory nerve endings which makes them one of the most sensitive areas of the body. The early Chinese developed the technique of acupressure thousands of years ago. This provided the basis for reflex zones and the relative points and connections between different parts of the body. It is well documented that the early Chinese, Japanese, Indians and Egyptians worked on the hands and feet to promote good health and many of the long-established principles developed then are now available to be used in the modern practice.

Injury Treatment

Injury Treatment

Suffering from an irritating injury that won’t seem to heal on its own? Deep tissue massage techniques can be utilised to aid the healing of injured muscles. The use of heat and ice treatments can also be beneficial.

We will take a detailed history of your injury, whether it’s recurring or something that has just happened to help tailor your treatment. Please note though, we are not medically trained and cannot diagnose conditions. If you are exhibiting any symptoms that could be contra-indications to massage, we will advise you to visit your GP to check.

We usually recommend a series of 3 visits for injury treatment, and would expect you to see or feel a positive difference after this time.

Postural Assessment

Postural Assessment

Part of any massage assessment will involve a postural assessment. People’s posture can really impact their lives and wellbeing. For example, do you sit at a computer all day long, with your arms in front of you? This can cause rounded shoulders and compaction of the neck muscles, especially if you have to twist at all to see your computer screen. Sitting or wearing high heels can be a cause of tightness in the leg muscles. If you do a lot of driving, again, the shoulders and the back muscles can become tense.

Massage and stretching techniques can be used to help resolve some of the postural habits people adopt in their everyday lives.
