Massage is a proven, effective therapy for gently removing tension and toxins from tired and aching muscles, encouraging the Client to release mental, physical and emotional tensions. This allows deep relaxation and the opportunity to ‘chill out’. Gentle, yet deep and effective soft tissue massage styles are used to suit each Client’s needs. Hayley often uses her forearms to achieve a deep, yet gentle and nurturing, soft and flowing, massage.
A blend of warm aromatherapy oils is usually used to further enhance the benefits. Massage encourages better circulation, bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients to the muscles and effectively encouraging toxins and waste to leave the muscles. This stimulates the immune system and helps the body defend against infection.
Clients may choose to incorporate Lava Shell massage.
It is important that clients advise of any allergies as this may affect which oils are safe to use in their massage. Eg. nuts, citrus fruits.
Aromatherapy – The use of essential oils (concentrated liquid extracts distilled from herbs, flowers, spices, woods and resins) to stimulate and reinforce the body’s own defence mechanism. These oils can have uplifting and calming effects on the psyche. Used for over 3,000 years by many ancient civilisations.
They often have chemical constituents closely related in their molecular structure to those of human cells, tissues and hormones. They can help various symptoms and make us feel more balanced.
Essential oils should always be diluted in a carrier oil before use. They should not be taken orally and be kept out of reach of children and animals. They are highly volatile so should be kept out of sunlight, in a cool, dark place.
‘M’ Technique® is gentle and soothing. A very light and gentle stroking technique suitable for everyone and appropriate for calming anxiety and for Clients who are too fragile to receive massage. It can be done through clothing and in a seated position so is very versatile and often just hands or feet may be treated if appropriate.
Family or carers often like to be taught an ‘m’ technique hand massage so that they may help their loved ones.
