I provide several different types of massages:
Swedish massage, deep tissue, aromatherapy, Indian head massage and massages followed by Reiki or massages with Reiki at the same time.
As well as this any massage that someone has is conducted to suit them on that day as well. So there is a consulation or a few questions to ascertain which areas of the body the customer wants me to focus on and any that they would like me to leave out. All different massages have their own particular method, and type of hand movements. Swedish massage can be invigorating or relaxing or a bit of both to suit. Deep tissue massage is a deeper method of tissue manipulation and also I use my arm as well to massage. But Swedish massage can also be done in a deep manner to suit the customer’s likes or needs. Aromatherapy is a relaxing massage and is conducted to distribute the oil with the essential oils in it and to relax the customer at the same time. Indian head massage is focused on the upper part of the body including the scalp, but all types of massage could have the scalp massaged as well as the rest of the body. A lot of customers enjoy having a massage followed by more relaxation and Reiki. So they do go well together and I can also provide a massage with Reiki as well.
In all these types of massages it is important to find out what the customer wants and likes, and to check pressure is as is liked and required. And it is important that if a customer wants a deeper pressure that they feel comfortable saying so, I am here to listen to a customer’s needs and likes. Also sometimes customers don’t understand that with a massage you tend to start of with more gentle strokes before moving on to deeper strokes and manipulation. This is to warm up the muscles first.
All massages have many benefits and are not simply relaxing. They are good for all the systems of the body as well as for stress reduction and to help sleep. Below are some of the many benefits of massages.
