Massage Therapy

Unwind and melt away the stresses and worries in your body and mind, as you rest under a deeply relaxing massage to calm all your senses. Massage therapy is recognised as one of the oldest methods of healing, with references in medical texts nearly 4,000 years old, from ancient China, Japan, India, Arabic Nations, Egypt, Greece (Hippocrates defined medicine as “the art of rubbing”) and Rome. Massage promotes a deeply restorative and rejuvenating sense of well being, while also improving blood circulation and stimulating the body’s lymphatic system, which carries away waste products.

Swedish

A relaxing and soothing massage technique, Swedish massage uses long, gliding strokes across your body to create a state of complete relaxation. By encouraging blood flow through gentle movement, it is ideal for boosting circulation, removing toxins and improving flexibility.


Relaxation with essential oils

Using natural therapeutic and fragrant plant oils, aromatherapy massage can be tailored to help a broad range of issues – from assisting relaxation and creating a wonderful sense of wellbeing, to easing stress or tackling specific problems. Your therapist will use pure essential oils that have been extracted carefully from selected plants, with a carrier oil such as almond or grape seed oil.

Contraindications that PREVENT or RESTRICT for massage:

  • Fever: When you have a fever, your body is trying to isolate and expel an invader of some kind. Massage increases overall circulation and could therefore work against your body’s natural defenses.
  • Inflammation: Massage can further irritate an area of inflammation, so you should not administer it. Inflamed conditions include anything that ends in –itis, such as phlebitis (inflammation of a vein), dermatitis (inflammation of the skin), arthritis (inflammation of the joints), and so on. In the case of localized problems, you can still massage around them, however, avoiding the inflammation itself.
  • High blood pressure: High blood pressure means excessive pressure against blood vessel walls. Massage affects the blood vessels, and so people with high blood pressure or a heart condition should receive light, sedating massages, if at all. Always confirm that with you Doctor.
  • Infectious diseases: Massage is not a good idea for someone coming down with the flu or cold, as well as it is contagious to other people around you.
  • Hernia: Hernias are protrusions of part of an organ (such as the intestines) through a muscular wall.
  • Osteoporosis: Bones become porous, brittle, and fragile. Massage may be too intense for this condition.
  • Varicose veins: Massage directly over varicose veins can worsen the problem.
  • Broken bones: A light massage to the surrounding areas, can improve circulation and be helpful.
  • Skin problems: You should avoid and not massage areas with anything like rashes, wounds, bruises, burns, boils, and blisters, for example.
  • Cancer: Cancer can spread through the lymphatic system, and because massage increases lymphatic circulation, it may potentially spread the disease as well.
  • Other conditions and diseases: Diabetes, asthma, and other serious conditions each has its own precautions, and you should seek a doctor’s opinion before administering massage.
