More than just relaxation
I have been practicing Complimentary Therapies since 1998, working on cruise ships, in businesses, care homes and in the community.
In the 20 years since qualifying with a diploma in Swedish body massage and Aromatherapy. I have gone on to train in advanced massage techniques, deep tissue and hands free massage to give a relaxing massage but also to focus more deeply on problem areas using knuckles, forearms and elbows on trigger points and areas of tension, and to treat chronic pain.
When we are mentally run down or suffering emotional distress we can suffer physically from muscle tension, general aches and pains and fatigue, as well as more serious conditions. Massage is a great way to relax, and relieve stress and tension from the body and mind, and to promote flexibility and reduce the possilibility of injury.
There is no medical department that deals with and treats muscular pain and strains and there is no treatment other than painkillers, and physiotherapy. Therefore, employing the services of a therapist who works with these issues and can provide relief through treatment and offer self care advice. It is also worth noting that there is evidence to show that pain often is a result of emotional issues and does not have a physical diagnosis. Though massage can release the acute pain, further work may be needed on the emotional side.
You can book a 50 minute treatment at The Magnolia Therapy Centre in Mapperley Park. I also do Mobile Massage treatments for some clients.
Swedish spa style massage
Though these are the techniques I am qualified in, I don't necessarily offer them as stand alone treatments but incorporate them into each treatment as necessay to accomodate your individual needs and requirements based on the intial consulatation.
