Holistic Massage Therapy

back massageWhat is Holistic Massage?
Our body is influenced by our emotional, physical and mental state. The environment, working conditions and our diet can affect our body in many ways, resulting in aching muscles, fatigue, and physical pain. Massage is an effective way to relax the physical and mental state of a body by bringing it back to its natural state.

'Holistic' comes from the Greek word 'Holos' meaning 'whole’. Holistic Feeling focuses on treating the whole client including their physical, mental and emotional state by using a range of relaxing, stimulating and invigorating techniques. The treatment will provide a simple way to relieve every-day stress, postural problems and a range of medical conditions. Along with the lifestyle and aftercare advice, a holistic massage is a great way to help keep you in control of your health and your general well-being.

Swedish Massage Therapy
Holistic Feeling uses Swedish massage techniques which involve the manipulation of the superficial and deeper layers of muscle using a range of light and deep effleurage, knuckling, petrissage, compression, and friction techniques to enhance the muscle function, help the healing process and promote relaxation.

The main strokes used during the practice also promote the following benefits:

  • Effleurage – Relaxes muscles, relieves pain, increases circulation
  • Knuckling – Improves nutrition in tissues, encouraging waste removal, increasing circulation
  • Petrissage – Relieving congestion, reducing swelling, aiding digestive disorders, breaking up adhesions, stretching muscle fibres, and stimulating muscle tone
  • Compression – Mobilising muscles, reducing pain and muscle spasms
  • Cross Fibre Friction – Breaking up adhesions and assisting in realigning scar tissue
