There are many benefits to be gained by having a Swedish body massage. Relaxation and stress relief are probably the most important and valuable reasons to book one.
Massages can be tailored to suit your needs,
however some of the popular massages are:
I am able to travel to you if necessary as my couch is portable
Having a massage gives your body time to relax in a quiet, comfortable place, away from the business of your day. Your mind drifts while your muscles ease and let out tension. I can travel to your home or use a room in my house in Sturmer.
Circulation is improved and harmful toxins are released from your body leaving you feeling generally healthier during the following week.
Massage stimulates your body to release endorphins which cause a feeling of wellbeing and contentment.
For anyone who has never had a massage, the thought of being in a strange situation can be daunting. You may not know what to wear etc. On arrival I will set up the couch, explain to you what I'll be doing, make sure you're comfortable and go through any required health questions. I'll then leave you to get changed and lay on the couch completely covered by a bath sheet. When you're ready I'll adjust the towel to keep you feeling comfortable and covered while I treat the exposed muscles.
I tend to use Sweet Almond oil or Grape Seed oil as the base for most massages, sometimes adding aromatherapy oils for a more specific fragrance. These are light nutritious oils that absorb quickly into the skin and carry healthy antioxidants. If in a work environment it is possible to use a small amount of talk for a neck and shoulder massage.
Jez is professional and respectful. He has excellent knowledge of the body and was able to tell me why certain muscles were becoming knotted and offered practical solutions to combat this. Following his massages I felt completely relaxed and had a fantastic nights sleep. I would whole heartedly recommend Jez as your massage therapist.Thank you!
Regular massage is really important for me as a runner and Jez can troubleshoot any problems and keep track of my fitness, as well as providing a much needed relaxting back massage.
