Massage naturally increases circulation and oxygen in the blood while switching on your parasympathetic nervous system enabling your body to heal and repair. Honouring the wisdom of your body’s innate healing mechanisms I practice reiki and have attained a level 3 certification. Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that works on all levels, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Rei - means life force and Ki - means energy. It promotes a feeling of deep relaxation and accelerates the body's natural healing process.
The pressure is how you like it and if needed we will do some deep tissue work and release any built-up tension and muscular knots. Massage is therapeutically used to treat stress, depression, anxiety, grief, overcoming illness, insomnia, or for those in need of some time out and tender loving care. Therapeutic touch has numerous benefits and there are no limits to who can benefit from massage therapy.
Prenatal & Postnatal Massage
Pregnancy is a time of emotional and physical changes. A massage during the second and third trimesters is highly recommended to support the mother-to-be. Easing muscular aches, fatigue, swollen ankles and difficulty sleeping. Massage is modified to meet the needs of pregnancy with support cushions and pregnancy-safe oils.
Post-natal massage relieves body aches left over from birth, reduces any swelling and muscular discomfort, promotes rest and supports the new mother during this transition period. I use a combination of arnica, St Johns wort, lavender, & almond oil which reduces muscular discomfort, helps tissue stay soft and supple and promotes rest and a sense of calm. Massage naturally releases feel-good hormones and reduces cortisol supporting the new mother during this transition period. Post-Natal Massage can be performed in your own home for comfort and time is given for breaks should you need to feed or comfort your baby
