Massage brings freedom of movement.

Your first appointment starts with a detailed medical case history: the medical history, previous problems and medical checks are taken into account. Therapy typically involves the style or type of style you have chosen. Generally, Deep soft tissue & massage will work quite firmly, along with specific muscles and reinvigorates nerve pathways and has many documented benefits. Treatment tends to release muscular reflexes and tissue shortening ( stiffness) that can lead to fibrosis, deep muscle pain and stiffness. The massage provides a fantastic sense of lightness, freedom of movement and may help to reduce further injuries.

Physiotherapy and Osteopathic massage treatment may help to improve mobility and coordination of the whole body. Specialist massages may also involve articulation of peripheral joints (to aid mobility) and soft-tissue work to stretch and rebalance stiff muscles. Other massage treatments include reflex and trigger point therapy. Nerve tension–release techniques may be used to improve the tensions through the nervous system, helping with pain and weakness. Massage can be excellent for early stages of sciatica and grumbling low back pain. Massage treatments may reduce the risk of slipped discs, joint and nerve injuries by improving flexibility and advising you regarding lifestyle issues.

Sports massage for treating physically active individuals, although will suit anyone involved in heavy-duty physical activities and sports performance.  Firm deep tissue treatment also works just as well for people that drive or sit at desks for hours. Some people are more vulnerable to injury because of the amount of mental or physical stresses placed on their body.

Understanding the holistic approach

The primary difference between holistic healing and other, more mainstream complementary therapies is that your physical health is not necessarily the primary focus. Holistic or “whole body” healing addresses all parts of the individual, essentially mind, body and spirit.  The justification for Holistic medicine and though is most apparent we look wider at the persona and possibly deeper into who you are and the ways you live. Holistic healing is not intended to serve as a band-aid or a one time fix. Holism is an ongoing journey of discovery, the search for more answers and ultimately; for living better, being healthier and striving for wholeness and well being.

Searching for answers in holistic healing

Often the experience of physical or emotional pain will prompt interest. Disillusion with mainstream medicine, feelings of fobbed off and “not understood” and, being told ” its all in the mind” encourages people to search for answers in holistic healing. The feeling of being “not quite right” or fatigued, tired or depressed combined with other physical pains demand our attention. It’s very normal and human to want to understand and put an end to these feelings. Problems can end up shouting at us and complaining loudly just to us to let us know they’re not happy. It is difficult to ignore the obvious when we are physically hurting.

Holism aims to understand why and how you feel the way you do

Fatigue and pain inform us we should seek help to restore energy and alleviate our discomforts. Holistic healing is not an “alternative” to conventional medical care but aims to support, re-energise and balance the mind and body. Ideally, long before the disease process manifests. The body is influenced in many ways by a chemically aggressive world. Some people are susceptible to this assault and become exhausted and deeply unwell. Environmental toxicity may manifest in many ways, such as fatigue and depression. Holism aims to understand why and how you feel the way you do. Holism is a subtle, deep and intelligent way to approach non-resolving health conditions that no one else seems to understand. Physical illnesses are often indeed the manifestation of a greater imbalance. Often the feelings have taken a long time to develop through many episodes over many years. In part “burn out”, chronic fatigue or metabolic diseases may or may not have a cause in the physical but be a combination of subtle abuse.
