Deep Tissue Massage
This specialist type of massage helps to manipulate some of the deeper tissue layers of the body. It targets hypertonic muscles which have become short and tight over time due to posture and repetitive movements. It also focuses on addressing issues with muscle tone. Most people have a lateral deviation between the two sides of the body, causing one side to become short and tight and the other side to become stretched and weak. The purpose of this treatment is to address any muscle tone imbalance within the body.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage
This type of massage uses repetitive, gentle strokes and light pressure to support the lymphatic system which plays an essential role in getting rid of toxins and waste from the body. It’s ideal for those looking for a body detox, to strengthen the immune system, reduce swelling and provide relaxation. It’s sometimes recommended post-surgery, but you should ask your doctor before you go ahead. As a qualified ITEC Lymphatic Drainage Massage Level 4 therapist, Rebecca offers this highly specialised technique as part of her services.
Chair Acupressure Massage
Rebecca is also a practitioner in chair acupressure onsite massage. This involves applying pressure over various acupressure points on the neck, head, shoulders, back and arms. It can be easily carried out over clothes and ‘onsite’ in an ergonomically designed chair, making it a flexible and convenient way to receive a massage. Benefits include relieving muscle tension, promoting relaxation and stress relief, as well as stimulation of the lymphatic system and boosting energy levels. For this reason, it’s often chosen by corporate clients requesting onsite therapies for staff.
