Holistic Massage is based on the principles of Swedish Massage. This style of massage is great for those that want to switch off and unwind but like a FIRM RELAXING MASSAGE.
Pregnancy massage is safe to receive at any time during your pregnancy. At the beginning of your pregnancy you will usually lie as normal (face down) unless this is not comfortable for you. Massages at the middle and end of your pregnancy will be performed with you lying on your side supported by cushions to ensure your comfort.
Some people think that Deep Tissue Massage is only for those that play sports or work out a lot. Yes, those people most definitely do benefit from this style of massage but In truth....so does everyone else! The aim is the same whether your an athlete or a house wife...to get to the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
A deep massage can help where there is chronic muscle tension or injury. there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation.
Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, we often uses direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles.
