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.
To begin with each massage is individually tailored to how you are at that particular time. Holistic Massage works on a physical level by improving circulation and lymphatic drainage aiding the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells whilst at the same time eliminating toxins, releasing muscular tension and boosting the immune system. It’s is a relaxing massage which calms the mind and reduces everyday physical and emotional stress on the body. It also feels great! Remember, this is your treatment, your space and your time to relax.
A medical consultation will take place, so the therapist has a clear idea of what you require and tailor the session to meet the needs of the client. The therapist will discuss exactly how the session will go, i.e. what areas need to be concentrated on. You will be left to undress down to underwear and get comfortable on the couch. During the massage only the part of the body being massage will be exposed at any time, the rest being covered in warm towels. After the massage you will be offered a glass of water to help flush out any toxins that may have been released. Alcohol and heavy meals should ideally be avoided, bubble baths and an early night are highly recommended!
