Specialising in Ayurvedic yoga massage with deep tissue massage and lymphatic drainage massage, and Gua Sha facial lymph drainage massage. I aim to use massage therapeutically for musculoskeletal pain and aid with digestion and organ health. I am also of the belief that massage therapy is great for depression, creating a connection with mind body and spirit, and massage therapy is great for eliminating work and personal stress. Tension and anxiety manifests itself in the body and with massage therapy, over time, we can work on eradicating pain throughout your body. Massage therapy can also be used for auto-immune disorders like Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis, soothing symptoms and bringing a sense of wellbeing to sufferers by subduing the pathways that increase inflammation and that antagonise the immune system in autoimmune disorders. For me massage is much more than soothing muscles after a long hard day, it’s essential for a healthy mind and body. It’s also important for me to keep learning and studying and keeping abreast of current massage techniques and the use of massage therapy for mental and physical health.
Ayurvedic Massage Therapy and Deep Tissue Massage
Combining both therapies this a wonderful and hugely beneficial massage. After a short discussion regarding the level of intensity of massage, I use 100% organic oils to warm and massage the body, focusing on problem areas. I read the body and feel for where my help is needed most. Using tractions, my feet, my fists, knuckles and elbows, I work to make you feel anew and refreshed after a session. This particular therapy is great for regular weekly treatments as it follows the Ayurvedic principles of prevention of diseases rather than cure. This treatment is floor mat based.
Lymphatic Guasha Massage
Lymphatic Drainage is a manual therapy that uses focused rhythmic movements in the direction of lymph flow. It encourages the lymph channels to boost the flow of lymph and drain excess fluid from the body. It not only has specific benefits for many health conditions but is a beautiful treatment for relaxing the body and reducing stress and anxiety.
Gua Sha translates into Scraping Toxins. A gorgeous Traditional Chinese Medicine facial massage dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Gua Sha uses the facial reflex zone and lymphatic meridian lines to promote drainage and healthy skin. A very fashionable trend right now, many use Gua Sha for anti-aging. I do not promote anti-aging, I endorse positive aging, working with what we have to encourage a fresh, firm and hydrated complexion and healthy skin. Though this therapy is great with supporting a more youthful appearance, Gua Sha is so much more than aesthetics, it works on the facial reflex zone to aid healthy organs and we can discuss further the many benefits Gua Sha can bring into your life.
