BENEFITS OF MASSAGE:
A full body massage has various physical and psychological benefits. Apart from its soothing and relaxing effects, massage increases venous and lymphatic flow, improves sleep and desquamation.
Petrissage, one of the classic massage movements, improves cellular nutrition due to an increase in blood supply to the tissues. Compresssion movements can help to maintain the tone and elasticity of the muscles. Vigorous strokes can help release toxins and deeply held tension in the muscles.
ITEC registered therapists abide by the following (among others):
"ITEC professionals shall at all times act in a professional, ethical and honourable manner towards their clients and members of the public. Client modestry shall be maintained at all times."
History of Swedish Massage:
Per Hendrik Ling, the father of modern/Swedish Massage , studied in China. He was the President of The Royal Swedish Central Institute of Gymnastics (1813). This institute opened in London in 1838.
Benefits of Massage have been recognised with the increased awareness in complementary therapies and alternative therapies. Many systems and methods exist but Swedish massage remains the basis for most practice. It is a central part of therapies such as physiotherapy, Stress management and Aromatherapy.
I am fully qualified and trained by ITEC (International Therapy Examination Council).
The ITEC Diploma in Holistic Massage uses Swedish Massage Methods and extensively covered topics such as Anatomy and Physiology.
Alongside Anatomy and Physiology, the course also required massive practical experience on the use of massage.
For the client, it is a relief to know that the therapist uses proven methods rather than haphazard and experimental techniques when dealing with clients.
As a member of a professional body - The Complementary Therapists Association (CThA), the leading organisation representing over 9,000 Complementary Therapists in the UK and Ireland, you can be confident of high quality, professional treatment where your well-being and modesty is of utmost importance.
