Massage  – Therapeutic and Deep Tissue

Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissue usually with the hands, for the promotion and restoration of health. It increasing oxygen flow in the blood and releases toxins from the muscles. Muscle stiffness and fatigue are reduced while the lymphatic system is stimulated, increasing the removal of waste products and boosting immunity. It can also help to relieve stress and anxiety, promoting deep relaxation and a sense of wellbeing. Deep tissue massage employs particular techniques to help with rehabilitation following injuries.

Rhythm Mobility

As taught by Darien Pritchard at the Bristol School of Massage and Bodywork (BSMB). This is a nuturing treatment whereby heat is applied to the back while lying down and the whole body is gently and then firmly rocked. It is particularly effective for releasing back and pelvic tension and for conditions such as sciatica.

Reflexology

Reflexology uses the feet to treat the whole body. The feet are seen as a map of the body and, using manipulation and pressure to stimulate certain points, (known as reflex points) the body can be brought back into balance. It also promotes a feeling of deep relaxation and well being.
