Holistic massage is an individual treatment that is specifically tailored to each client. As a holistic practitioner I treat each person as a whole, taking into account your emotional and spiritual wellbeing, as well as your physical body.
The term “Holistic” derives from the Ancient Greek word “holos,” which means “whole.” So by definition holistic massage treats the ‘whole person’ mind, body and spirit. Holistic Massage involves the use of different manipulative techniques to move the body’s muscles and soft tissue. Massage therapy aims to improve blood circulation, increasing the flow of nutrients and eliminating waste products to name but a few.
Holistic Massage is calming and soothing. It improves our sense of well-being, and reduces the levels of cortisol – the body’s stress hormone. It also strengthens the immune system by bringing more white blood cells into the circulation system, and this in turn helps to fight infection.
