Massage in eastern culture is woven into the fabric from life to death,
the oldest & simplest form of medical care. Not only by means of
pampering but to maintain health, to recover from a time of illness or
after birth of a child. Traditional Chinese culture books dating back to
2,500 B.C advocate massage of the skin & flesh, breathing, hands
& feet exercise to stay in good health.
Massage helps maintain health & homoeostasis
- aches & pains
- mobility of the joints and surrounding tissue
- shortens the time needed to recover from injury
- helps to break down scar tissue & blockages
- lymphatic drainage - the removal of unwanted fluid, toxins,
old hormones & chemicals from the body
- reduces stress and emotional tension which can effect other systems in the body
- improves blood & oxygen flow in the body
- supports the immune system which can be suppressed by stress.
- Research has verified that regular massage decreases the effects
of stress, depression and pain e.g.

It makes sense to keep your tissues soft, your joints flexible and
your digestive system strong, as your health is your most important asset.
Poor health could bring enormous change in both lifestyle and the dreams you have. So lifestyle is the new doctor.
Just the same as we anticipate change in our professional life, we can do the same with health & well being, good diet,
regular meals, exercise & deep breathing, which keeps the stress in life in the right place so we
are able to cultivate sound sleep for our body to repair it's self.
Oil of choice
For massage I use sesame or coconut
oil, massage wax & Chinese muscle oil. Lavender & jasmine
are the only fragrant oils I use.

e.g. aches & pains, or you simply want a massage.
this helps me to understand you & your body.
Previous operations, current medications, injuries, allergies,

I may ask a few lifestyle questions.
I may ask if I can look at your tongue & feel your pulse.
I then suggest how I can help, with a bespoke approach to meet
your specific needs.
At the end of the treatment I will ask how you feel, are you happy

Necessary advice will be given to help you maintain a balance in your life and hopefully I would see you again in the future.
