Massage, a powerful therapy for all ages and stages of life, has been shown to promote profound relaxation, reducing stress and enhancing wellbeing, thereby actively helping to protect against many of the common health issues of the twenty first century.  

People chose massage for many different reasons - a wonderful treat, stress relief or pain management, but however viewed massage can play a fundamental part when taking responsibility for one's own health and well being.

Regular massage means that whatever happens on a daily basis, there will always be a space for stillness in between all the other things that jostle for our time and attention, a space for time out to relax, recoup, revive and move on again.

The benefits of regular treatment

 

Lynne originally trained in Swedish massage and aromatherapy massage. Over many years she has trained in other styles of massage and bodywork including Pulsing and 'no hands' massage. Her work is unique, drawing as it does from many different sources. While there may be a similar framework for treatments, each one will be different in response to the individual needs of the recipient at that moment in time.  

 


 

Why choose a regular massage?

Physically a regular massage can simply be regarded as 'maintenance'. Daily stresses and strains are addressed as they occur helping to avoid minor aches and muscle strains compounding into major issues. When given a regular opportunity to 'return to base', the accumulative effect of massage means that the body quickly recognises how to relax, let go and revert to a comfortable way of being.    

Regular massage is a choice, a commitment to our own health and wellbeing just as much as regular exercise or a healthy diet. It may not be possible to change the demands of our multifaceted lives including work, family and home but it is possible to choose to invest time to look after ourselves so that we can, in turn, best manage our hectic lives and the people who are part of them.
