Remedial and Relaxation Massage
Remedial Massage Therapy
When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.
Several specialised techniques are used to locate and repair damage and to support and speed up the body’s own repair mechanisms. Usually oil is used to reduce friction and ensure the muscles associated with the discomfort are treated appropriately via deeper applications. Passive or resisted stretching may also be used.
Key benefits of Remedial Massage include: the stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed; the calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort; and the toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility. An improvement to the health of the cells, the repairing of tissues, and the easing of stiffness and tension can also be experienced.
Relaxation or Swedish Massage is a system of long strokes, kneading, friction, percussion, and vibration motions that apply pressure between muscles and bones, rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. Swedish Massage feels good, is relaxing and invigorating.
The main purpose of Swedish Massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Some other benefits include shortening recovery time from muscular strain, increased circulation without increased heart load, stretching of ligaments and tendons, skin stimulation and soothing of the nervous system. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested as part of a regular program for stress management. It also improves the health of skin by increasing blood flow to keep a youthful glow.
Seated Chair Massage provides the ability to apply muscle therapy techniques with the client remaining fully clothed. It focuses on the neck, shoulders, back, arms and hands. With the clients head in a cradle it allows for a relaxed position to fully embrace the therapy. Seated chair massage allows for the use of elbows to the clients shoulders to release deep seated tension.
My Mobile Massage can add Cupping to your massage, simply request it at time of booking.
Cupping is the term applied to a technique that uses small glass, plastic or silicone cups as suction devices that are placed on the skin to disperse and break up stagnation and congestion by drawing congested blood, energy or restriction to the surface.
Once suction has occurred, the cups can be gently moved across the skin (referred to as ‘gliding’). The suction in the cups causes the skin and superficial muscle layer to be lightly drawn into the cup. Cupping is much like the inverse of massage – rather than applying pressure to muscles (positive pressure), it uses negative pressure to pull the muscle and fascia upward to release contracted muscle fibres and fascial adhesions. For most patients, this is a particularly relaxing and relieving sensation. Once suctioned, the cups are generally left in place for about ten minutes while the patient relaxes.
The side effects of cupping are fairly mild. Bruising should be expected, but skin should return to looking normal within 10 days.
“Where there’s stagnation, there will be pain. Remove the stagnation, and you remove the pain.”
The old Chinese medical maxim holds that pain results from the congestion, stagnation, and blockage of Qi, or vital energy, vital fluids, lymph, phlegm, and blood. If pain is the essence of disease, then suffering is a result of obstructed or irregular flow in the body. Cupping is therefore a method of breaking up the blockage to restore the body’s natural flow of energy.
The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system. Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite.
Cupping is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available. It is thought to affect tissues up to 10cm deep from the external skin. Toxins, pain and blockages can be released within the area treated. It is a soothing and refreshing experience to aid in mind body wellness.
Inspired Personal Transformations (IPT) is our unique holistic balancing therapy to release restriction and limitation and install a positive mindset.
Memory is primarily stored in our water based cells and in space, it is the fascia’s crystal network, the human physical equivalent of the optic fibre internet, to relay this information throughout the body. The interface between memory and the conscious mind is the ego. We must work with ego, conscious and sub-conscious mind to regain full control of our lives to become true freedom creators.
Everything is a Vibrational Frequency, representing as Light/Colour, Sound/Tone, and Shape/Geometry. Thoughts and emotions are pure vibration, Quantum instruments of manifestation. How you perceive your environment in turn creates the energy (emotion) that manifests your reality.
Inspired Personal Transformations works with the body, mind and spirit to release, restore and rebuild the information needed for your journey which could include listening to specific tones, reciting Neuro-linguistic scripts and/or physical touch.
