Holistic Massage with Ruth

What is holistic massage?

A holistic approach treats the body as a whole, and a holistic massage practitioner takes into account a client’s emotional and spiritual well-being, as well as their physical body.

For a holistic practitioner, a wide range of massage techniques may be used, including gentle massage, stretches, pressure point work, relaxation and deep tissue techniques. Flexibility in applying this breadth of knowledge is paramount since their appropriateness must be determined by the client’s needs at that particular time.

During an holistic massage the therapist massages the person, not just their body, working ‘with’ the client rather than giving a massage ‘to’ them

Massage is suitable for all ages and can bring relief in a wide range of conditions, whether you come with a specific complaint, to maintain health and well being, or for general relaxation.

Massage has the ability to reconnect us with our bodies , allowing us the time and space to begin the healing process – physically by helping release tension and rigidity from our muscles and tissues and emotionally by allowing us to let go of the mental tension that so often accompanies discomfort in the body.

I am happy to discuss any aspect of treatment prior to booking, and offer a free consultation if required.
