The word holistic means to take into account the whole person and recognise that symptoms and psychology are often interconnected. Therefore, holistic massage is individually tailored to suit your body, symptoms and objectives. The therapists employ a range of techniques and use their sensitivity to tune in to your body. Therefore, this treatment can be physically restorative and mentally relaxing, or revitalising depending on your aim.
Why have a holistic massage?
It is also beneficial to psychological well-being. Touch is a powerful medium for ensuring we feel cared for, connected and safe. Bodywork (massage alone, or a combination of massage and movement) can be used therapeutically to help release negative emotion or trauma (both of which can manifest as physical or mental symptoms). Holistic massage and bodywork will help you to learn more about the dialogue of your body and gently allow you to release aspects of the past that may be holding you back or causing you pain or discomfort.
