MASSAGE

Robert gives a massageMassage is one of the oldest forms of treatment and it is also the most natural. If, for example, you were to bump your leg on the coffee table or pull your back while working in the garden, what is the first thing you would do? You would immediately rub the affected area to ease the pain. This is massage and that is why it is the most natural form of medicine.

By massaging the body, we promote better blood circulation, which in turn can lead to a speedier recovery to the area being treated. The lymphatic system also benefits from massage, helping to rid the body of unwanted toxins.

After working out at the gym or undertaking heavy work, a massage can ease away the aches and pains and eliminate lactic acid, which becomes trapped within the muscle fibres.

Massage also helps the body to relax making the clients mind unwind and helps them to sleep. How often have you been worrying about something and therefore you feel tense and irritable, but then your partner begins to massage your shoulders or stroke your hair? While they are doing this all your troubles seem to fade and the tension eases and your brain starts to unwind and relax, you may even fall asleep.

Being a massage therapist I have treated many people with sleep problems and the treatment has promoted better sleep patterns. Stress is very debilitating in our modern world, everyone seems to be in a rush, they need more hours in the day, they put ever more pressure upon themselves or work puts the pressure on their time, so there is hardly any time to relax.

This is where a good massage comes in. Just imagine an hour where you can simply lay on a couch with the sounds of gentle music playing, while all the stresses and strains of the day are massaged away, a little piece of heaven.

Massage can also help with many conditions and disorders that affect the body. Muscle damage, strains and sprains, aches and pains all benefit from massage. I have treated people with sport or work related injuries with good results. People who drive and those who sit working with computers can often suffer with neck, shoulder and back problems. A good massage can help. There are several types of massage. I myself am trained in Swedish massage. I can use my massage skills to either treat a particular condition or disorder or if you just want a gentle soothing treatment to pamper yourself then I can do that.

Like all the treatments I offer, massage brings a feeling of well-being, many a client as reported they returned home after their treatment and had a good nights sleep. I have often found that people fall asleep during their massage, leaving them totally relaxed when they leave the treatment room.

When having a massage, your modesty and comfort are paramount. Whilst on the couch you will be covered with a large towel, I will only uncover the area to be massaged. You will also keep on your underwear, although ladies would need to unhook their bra strap, so I could massage the whole of the back and shoulders.
Oils or creams are used but these will not stain clothing and, because they are of good quality, the massage will be smooth and relaxing.

Here are a few conditions and problems, which could respond to massage.
Joint stiffness, muscle fatigue, oedemas, insomnia, digestive conditions, tension, trapped nerves e.g. sciatica, sprains and strains.
