On-Site Chair Massage

October 14, 2019

On Site Chair Massage involves the application of massage techniques whilst the client is resting on a On Site Massage chair. It benefits in relaxing the mind and the body and is extremely useful in relieving stress and mental fatigue.

I have been working as a Complementary Therapist for 8 years. Since I was a child I have always felt a deep infinity with nature which sparked my interest in Holistic Therapies. I look to natural forms of healing as way of treating mind, body and spirit , which with all the day to day stresses of modern life can become out of balance, creating tension and illness , both physically and mentally in ourselves.
I am trained in a wide range of therapies such as Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Deep Tissue Massage, Indian Head Massage, Hot Stone Massage and  Seated Acupressure as well as Spa treatments such as Scrubs , Body Wraps and Facials.
Many of these therapies originated in the Far East thousands of years ago and their roots can be found in Ayurvedic and  Chinese traditions. They treat the person as a whole rather than the isolated symptoms. Massage and reflexology not only relax the body and mind, but boost the immune system, release natural endorphins that can combat depression and anxiety, aid lymphatic drainage and blood circulation, tone the muscles, and release blockages in the energy channels  resulting in increased vitality and energy.
I believe the more we listen to our body’s messages the more it responds with increased health and vitality. We all deserve a bit of time out for ourselves to relax, switch off and recuperate in an environment where we can feel tranquil and safe. Holistic Therapies are to me a stepping stone on the pathway to self love, self awareness and spiritual development, where the needs of our body , mind and spirit are nurtured as a whole.

I trained at The College of Classical Massage (based in Brighton) under college Principle Michael Gibbons.  I regularly assist the Principal of CCM in teaching the new Holistic Massage Diploma students encompassing all areas of massage technique, good posture and general student support.

I have been hugely influenced by my Grandfather who initially trained in medicine, but embraced a new career in complementary medicine in his 50s. He had a successful Osteopathy, Acupuncture & Homoeopathy practice. He treated the whole family and encouraged me to pursue massage, regularly inviting me to observe him at work.

I massaged all my children when they were babies and now they are teenagers who enjoy a variety of sports including Kickboxing, Boxing, Rugby, Basketball and sedentary gaming, they continue to benefit from my skills!!

Meeting a new client, I observe closely individual posture and gait and after a full consultation to gain a medical history and knowledge on any repetitive physical actions they may be doing to adversely affect their body’s balance, I design a bespoke treatment to suit their needs.
I never tire of the joy I feel witnessing the “before & after” effect, the profound difference the power of touch can have!

My regular clients include Teachers, Nurses, Musicians, Artists, Chefs, Physiotherapists, Midwives, Hairdressers, Yoga teachers, Builders, Camera men, Prison Officers, Gardeners, Actors, children and other Therapists.
