HOLISTIC MASSAGE

PHILOSOPHY

Throughout my life I have always had an interest in caring for people and recognised the importance of looking after the whole person; body, mind and soul. I have worked in healthcare since I was 19, including as a healthcare assistant in nursing homes and as a support worker in Learning Disabilities and Mental Health services. I then trained and qualified as a Nurse, working in both hospital and community settings. Later in my career I completed a degree and worked as a Health Visitor and lastly as a School Nurse.

 

Over the 30 years of working in healthcare I have experienced both physical (back pain and extreme muscle tension) and emotional/mental health problems, which made a significant impact on my health. Looking for a way to regain my well being I completed a Mindfulness course, which really impacted my life and helped my mental health. I now try to include Mindfulfulness into all aspects of my life and truly value the benefits.

I also now recognise the benefit of having regular massage myself and have a massage fortnightly, which helps to maintain my physical and mental health. 

 

After a trip to India in 2013 and meeting a truly inspirational woman, I decided that I needed to change my career in order to protect and enhance my well being. I returned home and enrolled on a Massage Therapy Diploma course. Over the past 4 years since qualifying as a Massage therapist I have been building up my business and developing my therapeutic skills through further training. My clients tell me that these new treatments are very beneficial to them. (See here)

Having worked as a professional for most of my life, I recognise the importance of undergoing such high quality training and maintaining exemplary professional standards. I am committed to ensuring your confidentiality and I am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding your massage.

 I provide a professional fully qualified and insured holistic massage service. I am an accredited member of the Complementary Therapists Association and I am fully insured for your peace of mind.

 

I am fortunate to have my own purpose built therapy room at my home in the outskirts of Truro. I work for myself so am able to work in a flexible way suiting the needs of my clients and my own life.

 

I incorporate being Mindful in all the massages I provide.

 

Mindful massage combines being mindful - paying attention in a particular way, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally, with holistic massage, which is a soft tissue manipulation of the body, particularly muscles, which has developed over thousands of years. It can be used to soothe, calm, relax or stimulate, it promotes suppleness of the muscles, eases aches and pains, helps to improve circulation and reduce stress creating a sense of wellbeing.

 

 

​All the massages I provide are bespoke and tailored to your individual needs following an initial free consultation. This consultation enables us to get to know one another a bit better and allows me to begin to really understand your health needs. The consultation usually takes about 15-20 minutes and is conducted at our first appointment. The consultation does not encroach into your "hands on" massage time.

 

Please note that all areas of the body (except the genitals and breasts) can be massaged and the massages I offer are strictly therapeutic.

 

 

Where appropriate after assessment, I am fully trained and insured to offer Deep Tissue Massage, Indian Head Massage, Myofascial Release Massage, Hot bamboo stick massage, Pregnancy Massage or one of the new Nourish The Soul Treatments for specific issues. The Nourish The Soul Treatments have been developed from the Cancer Touch Therapy training and you can find out more here.

Deep Tissue massage is a specific form of massage that focuses on the deeper muscles, tendons and ligaments. As well as helping athletes after exercise, it can particularly help with areas of chronic muscle tension, trapped nerves and poor postural habits.

PREGNANCY MASSAGE

This wonderfully nurturing whole body massage will allow mums-to-be some incredibly special relaxation time.

Slow, smooth massage techniques are used to calm and alleviate aches and pains. The use of organic oils during the massage help to moisturise the skin making it more supple and less prone to stretch marks. It is a fantastic treatment for any expectant mother in their second or third trimester.

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

Myofascial Release is a specialised treatment that releases restrictions within the Myofascia (connective tissue). It enables stuck, hardened and dehydrated areas to become pliable, soft, mobile and hydrated.

Palpitation skills are used to assess the structure and function of the body, allowing the therapist to determine wether to offer use of the technique.

Myofascial massage can be especially useful to athletes, individuals with chronic joint or muscle injuries, individuals that perform repetitive work that causes strain on muscles and joints, individuals that suffer from stress.

WARM BAMBOO MASSAGE 

Warm bamboo is a relatively new therapy. It originates from Asia, combining the benefits of Thermalism (heat) and deep tissue massage.

Solid bamboo sticks of different lengths and diameters are gently warmed and applied using deep and long massage strokes. This is known as Thermotherapy; Using the warmed bamboo sticks it helps to stretch tight, knotted muscles, break down tension within them causing them to relax. Making this an ideal therapy for runners, cyclists or other athletes experiencing tightness in their glutes, legs, feet and IT band.

Alternatively for a really fantastic relaxing massage gentle pressure can be applied, which combined with the heat is a truly wonderful therapy.

INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE

Indian head massage focuses on the head, neck & shoulders. I do not use oils during this treatment.

A firm massage helps to relieve tension around the scalp, neck, base of the skull and tops of shoulders.

 

A gentle massage on the face is used to help stimulate circulation, whilst precise focus on pressure points helps to relieve tension.
