Holistic Massage (deep & relaxing)
Holistic means 'whole' (it has Greek roots for those interested in the Etymology!). So this form of massage deals with you as a 'whole'. Like other therapies, it is not just looking to treat the symptoms, but to establish the cause, whether it be internal or external. The aim is to rebalance the body so it achieves homeostasis or balance.
It is a therapeutic application of touch using a range of movements or strokes upon the skin, muscles and joints. It is an ancient discipline with many technical variations based on different philosophies and practices originating from both western and eastern cultures. It has significant benefits for all of the body's essential systems; it maintains our general health, fitness, flexibility, complements traditional medicine in the treatment of specific conditions and symptoms and remediates against future injuries. Massage may also relax or stimulate the nervous system, reducing stress hormones or preparing the body for exercise.
