What is massage therapy?

A sheer heavenly experience inspired by Ancient India, our luxurious Ayurvedic Massage uses warm herb-infused oils specifically tailored to your individual needs. Ayurvedic massage is a key part of Ayurvedic therapy. Just as a machine needs to be oiled, the body loves to have its largest organ, the skin, soothed, which is why oils are commonly used in Ayurvedic massage. Whether the Ayurvedic massage forms part of a more comprehensive Ayurveda programme or is merely undertaken for the sheer pleasure of a deeply relaxing, indulgent body massage; Ayurvedic massage is one of Ancient India’s best-kept secrets. Usually, a therapist will ask you to lie on a massage table and techniques include rubbing, stroking, kneading or pressing.

How might it help?

Oil massage is consistently used throughout Ayurvedic massage treatments. Its calm approach means that recipients are not only induced into a relaxed state during the massage, they also often report an improvement in their sleep patterns and general sense of wellbeing.  In an ideal world, Ayurvedic massage would be carried out daily to help keep at bay the effects that everyday stresses and strains can have on our minds and bodies. Many people use massage just to relax. Massage is often used to ease pain. There is a theory that it could help with depression and constipation but more evidence is needed. 

What about safety?

Massage is not suitable if you have certain problems. Some of these include varicose veins, a history of blood clots or bleeding disorders, or weak or broken bones. People with cancer should only receive treatment from a specially trained massage therapist, with the approval of their doctor. If you have wounds or bruises you should wait until these are healed.

What is reflexology?

Reflexology is a technique that applies gentle pressure to your feet or hands to bring about a state of relaxation and help the body’s own healing process.
Reflexology works in a similar way to acupressure and acupuncture. It is thought that there are certain points on the feet and hands that correspond to the organs and glands in the body. So, by pressing and massaging these points it can stimulate energy pathways in the body. If any energy pathways are blocked reflexology aims to unblock them, allowing the energy to flow freely again which aims to restore balance to the body.

Who would benefit from a Reflexology treatment?

This general treatment can be tailored to address your specific health concerns. Everyone from children to people having palliative care can experience the benefits of working with a trained therapist. Consult a healthcare professional first if you are using Reflexology to support treatment of an existing condition.

People who may choose to select this treatment:

  • Experiencing general tension or anxiety.
  • Suffering from pain and want targeted relief.
  • Undergoing other healthcare procedures and need relief from symptoms and side-effects.
  • Often have tired or painful feet.
  • Have poor circulation to their extremities, as a result of illnesses such as diabetes.
  • Struggle to fall asleep, or have a sleep disorder.

People who should not choose a Reflexology massage:

  • Have open wounds on their feet and hands, or skin conditions such as verruca’s, athletes’ foot and eczema.
  • Showing fever, flu or cold symptoms, which can be amplified by massage.

Reflexology treatment potential benefits

  • Relieves tension.
  • Reduces stress and anxiety.
  • Encourages natural healing alongside conventional medicine.
  • Temporary pain relief.
  • Helps with sleep problems.
  • Stimulates the nervous system and clears energetic pathways.

During your Reflexology treatment

Your therapist will begin with an assessment, which will cover your medical history and any current conditions. They will typically ask you to sit on a stool or table, before cleansing your feet and using an oil to perform the massage. They may also work on your hands.

Reflexology techniques

This ancient technique is based on knowledge of specific points on the feet and hands which correspond to the rest of the body, and can be targeted based on your health concerns. Your therapist will begin with massage to warm up the area, before applying pressure to these points. Most therapists will treat one foot at a time, but some may work on both together.

After your Reflexology treatment

You’ll feel relaxed, calm and balanced. You may also feel energised, experience slightly heightened emotions, and notice improved circulation and digestion.

What is the difference between Acupressure and Reflexology?

Acupressure is a full body treatment, which requires you to get undressed. Reflexology takes the same amount of time to focus on your feet and hands, while you remain fully clothed. The aims and results are very similar.

Does Reflexology hurt?

This kind of treatment should not hurt, but certain areas can feel tender, particularly when your therapist is working on reflex points corresponding to problem areas. You should always let your therapist know if you would like more or less pressure.
