A massage helps us to feel good physically & emotionally aiding relaxation and the calming of our body & soul. This enables us to work more efficiently, as it stimulates every part of our being.
It releases physical & emotional tension, but also helps the lymphatic system to push out the excess toxins that we accumulate on a daily basis through food, drink and the air we breathe. Bacteria and infections are constantly attacking us, we need a healthy immune system to combat them
The more work we create for our bodies to cope with, the harder it is for our circulation, our lymphatic system, our liver, kidneys, nervous systems.
Massage stimulation affects and helps all of these areas and more
Combining massage with
enhances the benefits for e.g. pressure/stress relief, anxiety,
insomnia, depression, muscular aches,
dry skin, boosting of circulation & immune system,
clarity of the mind
assisting positive thinking
A healthier body & soul means our internal organs have less work to do, so we can focus more on our untapped potential when our bodies are functioning normally, without having to filter all the junk we ingest, and our minds are clearer, our ability to visualise, to create and be more proactive becomes easier, allowing our positive energy to flow freely
Your body requires exercise & nutrition too, the correct balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fibre, fats, aminos, vitamins are all important in the function of your mind, not just your body.
Certain foods and alcohol take longer to burn off calorific content than others.
Junk food has very little nutrient value and you end up wasting your valuable energy digesting it and getting nothing in return
I use therapeutic oils which have an ISO certificate
and are not tested on animals.
Oils must be of this quality which contain the
natural chemical constituents,
to have any beneficial effect on you.
Oils have a small molecular structure
and when applied through massage
will penetrate your skins layers
and travel through your body
via the oxygen and flow of your blood,
assisting your lymphatic system
along the way and stimulating
all the senses within to help
release your bodies natural chemicals
of for e.g
seratonin and endorphins

These are some of my current favourite oils,
if there are particular oils you like, let me know when you come, and I can purchase for your next treatment
Citronella Good for the mind, although it does have a pungent smell, insects are not keen on it, especially mozzies, I always add to my sun cream
Eucalyptus Great antiseptic, i always put in my burner if a cold is coming on
Lime I use this daily in my moisturiser to give me a zest for the day ahead
Lavender I use for helping me relax, either a drop on my pillow, or oil burner, and also in moisturiser, many many uses
Lemon I like using this in massage, but also in cleaning the home, great for removing sticky marks too when used neat.
Peppermint I find this helps my aching feet, good to help concentration in an oil burner, a great ant repellant, use in a spray bottle, like any oil to refresh your room or clothes
Red mandarin For relaxation, meditation
Tea Tree Not an oil I use in massage, as it is too pungent, mostly use on insect bites, grazes, and in cleaning the home
White Camphor I use this on clients with aches and strains to help the muscles, great in use with peppermint, very refreshing
