In all types of massage therapy, the intention is to relax the soft tissues, increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the massaged areas, warm them, and help the body to relax. In a typical massage therapy session, the practitioner will discuss symptoms, medical history and the desired results. The practitioner generally performs some evaluation through touch before beginning the massage. Massage may be found to bring relief from everyday aches, reduce stress, increase relaxation, address feelings of anxiety and tension, and aid general wellness.
My name is Pippa and I am holistic therapist offering massage and holistic treatments at The Old Rectory Clinic. I have gained a lot of experience working in a range of spas and salons over the four years that I have been in the industry, including working abroad in Crete, Greece! I feel that massage is the best way to ease people of any pain they are experiencing, whether that be emotional or physical. It is surprising how much emotion or tension we hold in our bodies perhaps without realising.
