My name is Rebecca Jane. I am a fully insured/trained massage therapist who also specialises in Hydrotherm massage. The basis of massage is touch combined with friendliness, warmth, empathy and security, massage therapy is used to help manage a health condition or enhance your wellness. It is a great way of attaining and maintaining good health, healing aching muscles, insomnia, headaches, tension and stress/anxiety.
Massage should not be used in place of conventional medical care. Always consult a GP or other health professional for medical attention and advice.
The Swedish massage is a classic treatment which represents the western standard for massage. The various Swedish massage techniques are designed to improve your circulation, soothe your muscles and make you feel more relaxed. Besides the calming benefits, Swedish massage is thought to be good for:
reducing emotional and physical stress.
easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins
improving circulation by increasing oxygen flow in the blood
helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple
A truly innovative concept that allows you to receive specialist therapy treatment whilst you lie on two soothing warm water filled cushions that support and comfort the entire body that requires the use of flowing, specialist moves adapted specifically for the Hydrotherm. Your body weight provides the pressure required to achieve a relaxing and also alternatively, deeper massage as you’re the hands glide between yourself and the cushions. Whilst you feel weightless. The whole experience is luxurious. You can receive all treatments on the hydrotherm system at no extra cost.
It is excellent for relieving stress/anxiety and tension in the mind and body and uplifting your emotions.

Drink plenty of water before and after a treatment. This ensure that your body is hydrated, and your body can work well and can be more effective. Post treatment, this will help the lymph and circulatory system to remove waste products from your body and keep you hydrated.
Avoid caffeine and alcohol for 24 hours.
Avoid sunbeds and artificial UV lights.
Do not have a hot bath following a massage.
Avoid exercise for 12 hours.

Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic treatment that has been practiced in India for thousands of years. Indian head massage focuses on your head, neck and shoulders and was originally used to improve scalp and hair condition. It is a deep massage, using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage strokes on your scalp, deep tissue works on your shoulders, and stretching the neck. When relaxed, negative feelings such as anxiety, fear, and anger are released. Your mind will feel more harmonious and in tune with everything around, clearer, and more focused.
On Occasions people may experience the following effects after a massage. This can be your body readjusting.
Some redness/soreness on some muscles, especially where deep work was carried out. This should ease after a day.
Headaches. It is important to make sure you keep hydrated during this time.
Flu/cold like symptoms. These again will pass and are your body's reaction to the flushing out of toxins/metabolic waste.
A sense of elation/hyperactivity - this is your body’s reaction to nerve senses being activated by the massage.
Increased urination. Again, this will be due to toxins/metabolic waste being flushed out.
All massage can leave you feeling thirsty and needing to go to the toilet more than usual - this is because the massage has got your lymph circulation going and your body is flushing out toxins. Drink plenty of water afterwards as you slowly drift back to planet Earth.
