What to Expect on Your Message Therapy Appointment?
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 the symptoms. The focus is to work on the source of pain, or where your old past memory is stored. The massage therapist will often apply gentle but firm pressure to specific points and do repetitive energy work in the areas required.
By visiting a massage therapist regularly, you can help stimulate and create change in the hormonal communication of signals going to and from the brain. 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 the elimination of toxins.
Lymphatic Massage Treatments
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.
Our Massage Therapy Approach
Natural Health Therapy uses the practice of gentle massage with firm pressure, placed onto various acupressure points and long sweeping movements to clear lymph buildups. This is a highly intuitive style of massage given in conjunction with reflexology techniques. No Deep Tissue is done. The old age of “no pain no gain” mindset is no longer accepted as beneficial to good health and well-being. The deep tissues techniques, where the therapist attempts to force the muscle/ ligament to relax or let go is counter to clearing the pain. This actions sets in motion reactions to the experience of being forces and the muscles, nerves and blood then carry more pain that feeds on 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 Clare leaves you feeling clear and light with a deep calmness after having been given revitalisation, energy balancing and nurturing at the deepest levels. Be sure to keep well hydrated after your massage session as you will continue eliminating the toxins for the next 4 to 6 hours. The essential oils applied will continue to give a balancing healing effect for up to 2 weeks or longer depending of the individual.
