NEW!!! Hands Free & Myofascial Release Massage
This Summer I've taken additional courses to deepen my knowledge in massage and bring another dimension to my approach.
Hands Free is the use of forearms and elbows that replaces fingers and thumbs.
The long slow, flowing movements allows the muscles to melt in their own time easing tension with each fluid stretch.
As a practitioner I listen to the body and only move when the muscles allow me.
As a client this feels more smoother and very gentle, even though I'm able to work more deeply.
I've always wanted to find the balance between a gentle yet deep massage and with this technique I feel I've found MY groove.
As it's so gentle and stretches the muscles, allowing them to soften, this technique is suitable for everyone - even if you'd like a relaxing massage, or a deeper one.
Myofascial Release is a technique that works on the facia - a web-like connective tissue that wraps most structures in the body and encases the muscles. Its partially beneficial for problems with mobility and chronic pain.
In a healthy state facia is a gel-like viscose web that allows the muscles to glide easily over one another. Through injury or postural problems the facia becomes dry and sticky causing the muscles to adhere to each other resulting in a lack of mobility and pain.
This technique is most beneficial for:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Carpal tunnel
- Shin splints
- Sports injuries
- Painful scars
- Chronic pain
If you think Hands Free and Myofascial Release could benefit you, you can try these treatments through July & August for only £25 (normally £40).
