What is Full Body Massage

Massage therapy means many things to many people. In fact, a recently published scholarly article identifies more than 80 different styles of massage, many of which have been developed in the past 30 years! But to start, let's simply define massage as the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments) to enhance health and wellbeing.

Massage is often used for specific reasons, such as relief from pain, stress reduction, or enhancement of athletic performance. But whether there is a specific goal or not, massage therapy tends to increase the general health and wellbeing of the recipient. So it's got to be good for you.

What are relaxation styles?

Relaxation styles of massage offer gentle techniques. The goal or intention of relaxation massage is to reduce stress, promote overall wellness, relax muscles, diminish pain, and move body fluids (such as blood) to nourish cells and help remove waste products.

Specific goals for relaxation massage include:

  • Relief for tight muscles (knots) and other aches and pains
  • Improved circulation
  • Reduction of stress
  • Enhanced sense of wellbeing
  • Improved mood (reduction in depression, anxiety, and anger)
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Increased energy and vitality
  • Experience of comfort through touch

For those who exert themselves

Physical exercise often results in microscopic muscle injury with its associated soreness, decreased range of motion, pain, and inflammation, particularly with high force or repetitive muscle contractions.

Massage therapy may be an effective treatment for exercise-induced injury and is often recommended. Research studies have shown that massage may contribute to a reduction of post-exercise inflammation. Following exercise, especially eccentric exercise, there can be an acute increase in inflammatory cytokines in muscle. This cytokine reaction can lead to a systemic inflammatory response in which neutrophils may be activated and result in impaired endothelial function as they adhere to vascular endothelial cells.

Demonstrating that massage has a positive impact on brachial artery endothelium-dependent FMD may help support the use of massage as a way to reduce exertion-induced muscle injury and hypo perfusion in some individuals with heart disease or other at-risk populations in exercise training regimens. Massage's effect on endothelial function may also be beneficial for those with other physiological stressors that have vascular responses such as hypertension, wound healing, and hypoxemia.

If you are looking for a deeper tissue massage then let me know when booking and we can discuss your requirements.

 

Treatments Available

Deep Tissue, Therapeutic, Relaxation or Pregnancy Massage

Being trained in Deep Tissue and Relaxation Massage means that you are able to select a Massage of your choice. You may choose Deep Tissue for the upper body but want something more relaxing on the lower body. The choice is yours and can be discussed when booking or on the day. A relaxation massage helps de-stress and loosen up your body and is great for those who have had a hard working week or feel like treating themselves to some TLC! The treatment consists of flowing strokes, kneading and gentle manipulations of the muscles performed at your chosen pressure. I am also trained in Pregnancy Massage so if you are pregnant yourself or know of someone, and you are looking for some relief, then I can certainly assist. Usually a discussion by phone or in person is a good start so that we can both determine the best best options available and areas in which to ficus the massage on.
