Holistic Human Massage

Massage is one of the oldest and simplest forms of therapy. The therapy is designed to treat from a holistic approach which incorporates the whole person and not just the symptoms felt, by assisting the bodies’ natural ability to regulate, maintain and heal itself. Massage involves a system of stoking, pressing and kneading different areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate and tone the body. Much the same as when our own natural instinct leads us to rub a sight of pain. Swedish doctor, poet and educator Per Henrik Ling further developed the first known massage techniques found in ancient Greece, his techniques have become integral to modern massage therapy and his clinical work on soft tissue massage with athletes covered groundbreaking territory. He incorporated techniques from the ancient cultures to create a great part of the foundations we use today.

Why You might consider Holistic Human Massage Therapy:

One of the huge benefits of holistic massage therapy is that it provides a sense of relaxation throughout the whole body. Stress has become a major part of our lives and can be detrimental to mental and physical health. Massage relieves muscle strain and fatigue, aiding physical well- being and can help you to unwind to help benefit emotional and physiological symptoms.

Hannah uses a range of classical techniques from the system of Swedish massage, complemented by deep tissue and lymphatic drainage massage techniques. These would cover a wide spectrum of healing requirements from whole body reconditioning to deeper work on specific problem areas. Massage therapy is designed to treat from a holistic approach which considers the whole person assisting the body’s natural ability to regulate, heal and maintain itself.

First Consultation:

On first consultation clients will be required to give their full medical history so that Hannah can make an informed judgement on suitability for treatment. Like most treatments there are some people for whom massage may not be suitable or who may require their G.P.’s consent. G.P. consent is usually required for any client taking prescribed medication for a medical condition or is undergoing medical treatments. If you have a current infection and are taking antibiotics you are not suitable for treatment until you have completed the course of antibiotics and the infection has subsided.

After Effects:

Clients may experience some of these symptoms after holistic massage therapy. As everyone one reacts differently, clients may experience some or all of the following:

  • Emotional/tearful/laughter .
  • Fatigue/ sleepy/energised.
  • Pain relief or slight bruising in muscles.
  • Warmth/movement in corresponding area.
  • Headache due to the release of toxins - minimise this by drinking plenty of water following a treatment.
