Distance Reiki

20th March 2020

Due to the new guidelines for social distancing, the clinic will be temporarily closed. So I'll be now offering Distance Reiki.

Reiki (Ray-key) is a Japanese form of energy work that produces a meditative state that is deeply relaxing. This eases stress and anxiety, lowing pain levels, boosts endorphins and encourages the body to heal.

Its a very gentle treatment that is suitable for all. You don't have to do anything, just simply relax in a comfortable position and enjoy the peaceful feeling.

Before your treatment I will call you for an in-depth consultation, just to see how you are feeling and find out your treatment aims.

You will then be given 3 min to get comfortable, either in a sitting a laying down and I will send the Reiki.

Once I have finished, I will call you again to discuss my treatment findings. Or, if you don't answer (if you have drifted off to sleep) I will type them up and email them to you. 

You can also have an Oracle reading as part of your treatment to gain insight into your situation.

After your treatment, depending on your needs, a Reiki crystal grid will be set up that will continue to hold a healing space for you over the next 24 hours.

Bookings can be made online and are currently available from 10am - 10pm

7 days a week while I am self isolating.


TOP 5 FAQ's of Deep Tissue Massage

TOP 5 FAQ’s of Deep Tissue Massage

After 12 years of being a massage therapist, and the last 3 spent helping people in pain recover with deep tissue massage, I have discovered a lot of misunderstandings and misconceptions about this therapy and today, in this post I want to address them directly.

Here are the top 5 questions I get asked about deep tissue massage and my response to each of them...

1) What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep Tissue Massage is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues. Simply put, it helps keep muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia soft and flexible to improve how they work, reduce pain and help recover after injuries caused by repetitive movement or sport.

2) How Does Deep Tissue Massage Differ to Swedish?

Swedish Massage is the foundation for all massage. If you go for a massage and you’re unsure of the style, it’s probably Swedish. Swedish Massage is mainly long flowing strokes that usually has one objective – to ease muscle tension. It’s great for relaxation and perfect if you don’t have any injuries (think your typical Spa massage). Deep Tissue Massage focuses more on the mechanics of the body and works the deeper muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments, opposed to just the superficial layers, or top muscles in Swedish.

3) How Does Deep Tissue Massage Differ to Sports Massage?

They are both very similar in approach, the main difference is sports massage has a faster pace with short, fast strokes, where as deep Tissue is slow and deep. We wait for the muscles to melt and relax, rather than applying pressure and forcing them to.

Deep tissue is a unique style of massage that works deeper, both physically and emotionally. There’s something magical about holding a tight muscle and watching it melt as it relaxes in its own time.

4) Does Deep Tissue Massage Hurt?

Lots of people tell me they’ve had Sports Massage before, and it was pretty painful both during and after, so they expect Deep Tissue to hurt too.

Generally, Deep Tissue Massage isn’t more painful because it goes deeper. Many people are surprised by how relaxing and gentle it feels. Like with any massage, if you are experiencing pain or discomfort, a manipulation will make the area more sensitive, but usually, the discomfort eases as the muscle relaxes.

Compared to Sports Massage, there is less discomfort the next day with little to no bruising, so people generally better straight after the massage.

5) Can Anyone Get a Deep Tissue Massage?

Massage is suitable for all ages, from babies to the elderly. It can help with a wide range of issues from tension headaches to pregnancy aches and pains.

The only time someone would not be suitable is when there are cardiovascular conditions that are unstable, such as Deep Vein Thrombosis or during a flare-up of inflammatory conditions like arthritis.

Massage can help recovery from surgery, once open wounds are healed. It can also benefit those following treatment from cancer, once treatment has ended.

If you’d like to know if massage is suitable for you, or if you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me.

Hi, I’m Sarah, a Holistic Therapist that specialises in Deep Tissue Massage for tension Headaches and Pregnancy. I have twelve years’ experience and I work from my own clinic based on Treforest Industrial Estate, Pontypridd.
