Our BlossomingMe Massage Practitioners use a variety of effective methods to help you release the pain from your body easily and gently, leaving you feeling relaxed, refreshed and revitalised. The best remedy to bring you out of your busy brain and give you that all important “time out”. We specialise in the following styles:
Swedish / Relaxation
Swedish or Relaxation massage techniques focus on long, smooth, flowing strokes, combined with kneading and stretching. This massage style can help you manage stress levels and relieve chronic muscular tension. It can also increase circulation and lower blood pressure, as well as help regenerate and rejuvenate the body at a cellular level.
Remedial massage is a deeper style of massage which focuses on relieving problematic knots, tightness and other specific ailments to promote a healthy recovery. It may be especially beneficial for releasing chronic muscular tension associated with pain such as neck spasms, repetitive strain injury and lower back pain, as well as just simply for the relaxation of the body and mind. A Remedial massage can also assist in better blood flow and nervous system function.
In Shiatsu, gentle finger, hand and forearm pressure is applied along the energetic pathways of the meridian channels to clear energy blockages and reintroduce the optimal flow of ki (energy) into the body.
Acupressure uses the physical pressure of fingers, hands or elbows to activate the points and meridians in the Chinese medicine system for easier pain relief.
Key points on the skin’s surface are pressed to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s ki to aid its own healing.
Reiki is a Japanese technique that focuses on energy healing through the use of the Practitioner’s hands. It’s very calming and relaxing, and you may feel a sense of tingling or warmth around the area that your Practitioner is placing their hands.
At BlossomingMe, Reiki is often used together with Acupressure, activating the acupressure points with the Reiki energy. This enables a simple, deep and profound sense of healing.
Reiki may be especially effective for nerve damage healing after surgery.
