Massage Therapies incl Holistic Massage

Massage Therapies incl Holistic Massage in Weybridge,
Addlestone & Chertsey Surrey & surrounding areas

A standard massage is more often than not a fixed routine. Holistic massage evolved from the ancient massage therapies of Egyptian, Greek and Chinese civilisations as well as from the principles of self-development disciplines such as Yoga and Thai-Chi. However, the main methods and techniques used for holistic massage derive from Swedish massage developed by Per Henrik Ling (considered to be the father of western massage).
Holistic massage owes its development and popularity to the growing awareness of complementary therapies during the last few decades and draws on other therapeutic models.
The human body instantly responds to touch. Rubbing affected muscles and joints gives relief through the release of natural pain-killing chemicals (called endorphins). Touch can also give comfort by reducing emotional stress and mental strain.
Holistic massage treats the individual as a whole and aims to improve physical, mental and emotional well-being through touch. Holistic massage looks to correct imbalances in the body and mind that have built up over a period of time by understanding and treating the body's structure and function.
Your holistic massage will take place in a warm and relaxing environment. Your therapist will spend time during your first appointment questioning you about your medical history, general health, lifestyle and sleep patterns.
During your massage, the therapist will use their fingers, knuckles, hands and elbows to apply various massage techniques around the body. They may apply pressure and stroking movements (called 'effleurage') using their fingers and palms. As the session progresses, deeper pressure (called 'petrissage') may be applied to stretch out and separate muscle tissue and encourage better circulation of fluids in the body. The method used for deep tissue massage (called 'frictions') involves breaking down built up scar tissue and separation of muscle fibres. This can be uncomfortable but the therapist will not go beyond your comfort zone.
Following the holistic massage session, the therapist will discuss the treatment with you and any further sessions that you'll require. The therapist may also offer post massage care advice.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is an effective treatment of stress & stress-related conditions & can be used alongside other therapies. Indian head massage focus on the head, upper/ lower neck, shoulders & upper arms.

History Of Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage has a history of over 1,000 years and is referred to in ancient Ayurvedic writings (Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient health care system native to the Indian subcontinent). Indian head massage, also known as 'champissage' was first used by Indian women to keep their long hair in good condition. 'Champi' is a Hindu word that translates as 'massage of the head'.
Indian head massage was introduced to the UK in 1973 by Narendra Mehta. Mehta arrived in the country to train as a physiotherapist and was disappointed to find that head massage wasn't available and the head was neglected in a full body massage. He returned to India to study the Indian head massage techniques and extended the therapy to also massage the face, neck, shoulders and upper arms. He combined his new method with Ayurvedic elements to create a holistic therapy that would benefit the whole body.
Indian head message relaxes tension in muscle tissue around the head, face, neck, shoulders and arms. By relaxing and stimulating these areas, blood flow increases and energy balance is restored within the charkas (energy centres in the body). This removes stress and anxiety and flushes toxins from the body. It can also improve skin tone, increase mobility in the upper body and enhance concentration.
There are two methods of Indian head massage: Traditional Ayurvedic and Western Style. Treatment can also utilise acupressure and shiatsu and incorporate essential oils.
Most Indian head massages take place seated, however can have it laying down if you wish but the back of the head wont be reached as easily, your practitioner will use a variety of movements across your head, face, neck, shoulders and arms. Some will involve compression and kneading techniques that will feel unusual but shouldn't hurt.
After your session you may feel invigorated or slightly dizzy, you may also feel the need to urinate. Indian head massage releases toxins in the body that need to be flushed out so drink plenty of water after your session.


Swedish Massage / Therapeutic Massage


  "I had a wonderful night's sleep, the best I have had in a long while. There are no aches and pains and my body feels less tense and tight....."  
"I feel as though my batteries are fully charged. I'm not feeling absolutely exhausted, as I had been all week.
The programme we did was obviously just what I needed, followed by the head massage."
"Well I have to say that today I can certainly feel the "benefits" of yesterday. I slept like a log but when I moved there was a reminder that I had exercised the night before. There is no pain anywhere, just an awareness of having exercised my muscles."
M. Vieyra (1-2-1 yoga and massage) "

Swedish Massage / therapeutic massage was developed in Sweden in the early 19th century, Swedish Massage is a system of therapeutic massage/ exercise for the muscles & joints.
It involves using the hands, forearms & elbows to massage & manipulate superficial muscle layers.
The overall benefits are increased blood circulation, mental/ physical relaxation & improved ranges of motion. It can help with recovery times for muscle & ligament damage whilst helping revitalise the skin and nervous system.
A Swedish massage can be described as invigorating and rejuvenating as the therapy helps increase the oxygen flow in the blood whilst moving & releasing toxins from the tissue & muscles.
The treatment is so beneficial on physical & emotional levels that are often used as part of a stress management programme.
The range of techniques employed during a Swedish Massage are:
The use of oils to help manipulation & relaxation
Passive & active movements which stretch & relax the superficial muscles using gliding strokes with the palms, thumbs, finger tips
The kneading & squeezing of deeper tissues & muscles using the thumbs & finger tips
Friction & compression - Rubbing & ‘holding’ the tissues to relax muscles & break down scar tissue using circular pressures from the palms of the hand, thumbs & finger tips
Rhythmical movements & tapping performed with the edge of the hand or heel of the palm to increase blood circulation
Vibration - Rhythmical movements that shake the body & release tension, boosting circulation
