Touch is the core ingredient of Holistic Masage and combines the art of touch with the science of anatomy and physiology to provide a treatment that is suitable to young and old. The element of touch can never be overplayed, as it conveys a sense of caring, healing and relationship that is vital for out total well being.
At the Harmonia Therapies treatment room a sense of calm and tranquility is established to allow the Holistic Massage to work its wonders, combining the physical, emotional and mental to provide balance – a truely ‘holistic’ approach.
Seek a teacher if you wish, but you will only make progress when you realise that the master stares at you from the mirror every day
Holistic Swedish Massage forms the basis of most western massage treatments and is the systemised manipulation of soft tissue. The main benefits of this form of massage are to:
Allow the body to heal itself
Increase health and well being
Bring about a profound sense of relaxation
A holistic massage can be tailored to suit the time, requirements and finances for all. Many clients feel the benefits from a simple 30 minute back and shoulder massage, spoil yourself or a loved one and book for 1 hour and 30 minutes, alternatively go for the standard full body massage lasting 60 minutes.
Each client will be asked appropriate medical questions prior to any treatment. All information given is held in the strictest of confidences. Once it is clear that a client is able to have a treatment then the therapist will leave the room and leave the client to undress and lie on the couch, covering themselves in a large towel.
The therapist remains professional throughout the treatment and will enable to client to relax a much as possible. The therapist uses many different techniques including effluerage, petrissage, lymphatic drainage, kneading and tapotement to work all the main muscle groups.
The depth of the massage depends on each client, the therapist works to the clients comfort level to ensure that they are relaxed throughout. Privacy is maintained and the client is then able to fully ‘let go’ and experience deep relaxation. Soothing, calm music is played in the background and candles fill the room with tranquil aromas combined with the touch of the massage to provide an experience for all the senses.
