About Massage Treatments
Massage has been practised for thousands of years and is widely recognised as an important therapy for the treatment of physical and emotional problems.
Many people these days are aware that massage can help reduce their stress levels and give them a feeling of relaxation and well-being. The medical profession also appreciates the benefits of massage and many nurses and doctors not only recognise the benefits of the therapy; they also recommend it to patients.
Massage therapy can be described in a number of ways, from energising to pampering, and used for a number of reasons such as pain relief, stress management or a 'me-time' treat. Whatever the reason someone chooses massage therapy it can be used as part of a healthcare regime to reduce stress, promoting a more healthy body. Clients have described a feeling of clarity of mind and a sense of perspective after a massage treatment. An emotional balance can be as beneficial to your health as the physical benefits.

Swedish massage is the most popular type of massage therapy. Whilst this type of massage is very relaxing and provides all the usual massage benefits, it incorporates a number of movements that have specific benefits.
Swedish massage can be utilised to help break down adipose tissue (the cause of cellulite). Visible improvement in the appearance of cellulite can be achieved with regular sessions and a healthy dietary regime.
Warm Bamboo Massage
Thought to have first originated in South East Asia, the Warm Bamboo Massage is a relatively new therapy in this country with results that go deeper and last longer that other massage techniques.
A warm bamboo massage can be compared to a hot stone massage as heat forms part of the therapy, although the bamboo is strong and flexible. The chemical structure of bamboo enhances the treatment due to the build-up of potential energy through the heat and pressure used in massage.
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to have a therapeutic effect. Although the use of essential oils is centuries old, it is more prevalent and commonly used today than ever before.
Aromatherapy and complementary therapies are now considered a form of treatment in modern medicine and is free on the NHS in certain areas of the country.
Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage, also known as champissage, originates from a hair treatment incorporating massage.
This treatment has been used by Indian women for thousands of years to maintain the condition of their long dark hair and protect it from the drying effects of the sun. Oils are massaged into the scalp and pulled through the hair to add to the overall therapeutic effect of the treatment.
Massage manipulates the soft tissues of the body, producing heat and stimulating the vascular and nervous system. For therapy purposes, massage can be seen as a means of either inducing relaxation, or invigorating the system depending on the choice and combination of massage movements used.
