Benefits of Swedish massage

Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility whilst easing tension beautifully. This therapy is very effective at helping alleviate the symptoms of stress and depression and easing anxiety levels.


The treatment encourages you to feel a deeper connection with your body as its soft tissues are soothed and relaxed. This in turn, encourages a busy mind to quieten whilst uplifting the spirit. Swedish body massage may also support quality sleep, which helps the body heal, repair, rest and rejuvenate more effectively so that the immune system can function well.


Swedish body massage also helps to release endorphins, the body's natural pain killer and reduces recovery time for strenuous workouts as it helps to eliminate subsequent aches and pains suffered by active people at all levels.



Holistic massage

The term 'holistic' comes from the Greek word 'holos' meaning whole. The holistic approach aims to restore balance within the body, taking into account the person's whole being not just their physical symptoms or ailments.

Holistic massage therapy therefore combines a therapeutic and nurturing process of touch that is adapted to your unique needs on the treatment day.


Fundamentally the approach with Holistic massage is based around oil based Swedish massage (using techniques such as effleurage, petrissage and percussion) but you may also expect me to incorporate various other relaxation techniques to truly enable you to deeply relax, restore and revive.

Massage Therapy for Regular Health Maintenance


Please note: though massage is a safe, very well established, complementary therapy (it does not replace medical treatment) there are some physical conditions which could be contra-indicatory to massage. If you are under your GP's care to help manage a serious condition then please do discuss this with me before booking your treatment. Many thanks.
