Massage Therapy with Natural Health Therapy in Brisbane and Toowoomba
It is common in life today to have a high tolerance for pain, agitation and irritation, which have become part of our everyday life. It is the extremely high and constant levels of stress that have become the normal way of operating in most of us and we are not fully aware of it. As a result, we just put up with the stress even though it is still affecting us, not just on a physical and emotional level but with our mind, we experience the mental distress, agitation and depression, becoming the prevailing condition affecting our health and happiness.
A massage therapist from Natural Health Therapy can help: Massage therapy is now recognised for its benefit to health and is an accepted health service with doctors, Medicare and Health Insurers. Seeing a professional massage therapist is no longer seen as self-indulgent or just a self-pampering activity. Massage therapy has become vital to healthy living and necessary for health-related issues such as relief from pain, rehabilitation of physical trauma and sporting injuries. Massage therapy can also assist with stress reduction, calming of the nerves and digestive balancing. There are many different types of massage that can be applied to different levels of comfort and awareness.
The type of massage needed for your individual needs, that brings comfort, freedom from pain and a greater calmness to the mind, is reflected in the therapist’s skill, sensitivity and understanding of the client’s needs. Clare Nott, operator and owner of Natural Health Therapy has been practising complementary health therapies for over 45 years and continues to grow her knowledge base, keeping up to date in with dealing with the current pressures we experience.
The practice of massage therapy encompasses many different techniques and different levels of soft tissue work. Most massage therapists will use their hands, fingers, forearms and elbows throughout the treatment in a calm, soothing and safe environment. There are both seated and reclining massage treatments to suit your individual needs.
During a massage, you will normally lay on a table in a comfortable position and covered with towels or a sheet. You will need the areas which require work to be free of clothing and accessories. A combination of specially selected oils is applied to specific areas of the body to alleviate your symptoms. The focus is to work on the source of pain, or where your old past memory is stored, with the therapist often applying gentle but firm pressure to specific points and repetitive energy work to the areas required.
By visiting a massage therapist regularly, you can help stimulate and create regularity in the hormonal communication of signals going to and from the brains. Paired with reflexology, massage therapy helps balance the functions of the endocrine and nervous system to respiratory organs, improving blood pressure and digestive function alongside elimination of toxins.
Another type of massage is a Lymphatic massage where we use essential oils that support a greater clearing of toxic build-up in the muscles, nerves and lymph system. As part of your treatment, Natural Health Therapy will make recommendations for hydration as well as slight changes in your diet to support the continued elimination of toxins after your massage.
Natural Health Therapy uses the practice of gentle massage, with firm pressure, placed onto various acupressure points. We utilise this style of massage in conjunction with reflexology techniques. No Deep Tissue is done. The old adage of “No pain No gain” is no longer accepted as beneficial to good health and wellbeing. The deep tissues are where the mind reacts to the experience of the muscles and only feeds pain to the source where an old stored perception or belief from the past is held. This old concept is usually associated with the subconscious acceptance that life is painful, or love is painful... Love is Pain. Massage is recognised as a safe therapy where the contraindications are recognised and adhered to.
Receiving a massage from our massage therapist at Natural Health Therapy leaves you feeling clear and light with a deep calmness after having been nurtured at the deepest levels. Be sure to keep well hydrated after your massage and reflexology session as you will continue eliminating the toxins for the next 4 to 6 hours.
