The term holistic comes from the Greek word ‘holos’ which means ‘whole’ and Holistic
Massage takes into account the person’s whole being. Its aim is
your total wellness. It has a positive impact on all body systems, bringing them
into balance and creating overall well-being or conditions for better healing. Holistic
massage can give you essential support you need, make you feel relaxed and
reassured and it may be a good complement with other therapies, such as
physiotherapy. As a holistic massage practitioner, I care about each person I treat.
From experience, I know that there’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ treatment- even if two
people have the same problem, treatment will often vary.
When you come for a holistic massage, I take time to find out a little bit about your
lifestyle, your stress levels and other relevant information, such as whether you’re
in pain, whether you suffer from insomnia or need treatment for a specific problem.
I’ll look at your body system as a whole. For example, you may have abdominal or
back pain that could be made worse by stress – the treatment I give you will aim to
I can also help you spot potential problems
in your lifestyle and advise on how to minimise or avoid them. I firmly believe in
the connection between mind and body and have seen many times that massage is
a powerful tool for bringing healing and relief.
The great thing is that massage is natural and non-invasive, so it’s suitable for
anyone, whatever your age or condition*.
