ALSO AVAILABLE AT MY CHESTER PRACTICE
THAI FOOT MASSAGE
This is a deeper, more invigorating leg and foot massage which is ideal for clients in need of an energy boost however it may not be suitable for everyone (eg children, the elderly or pregnant women). A special stick can be used for a deep effect on the reflex points of the soles of the foot. Loose trousers need to be worn for this treatment and it is available for women only. The treatment takes up to one hour 15 minutes.
INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
This is generally a thirty - forty minute treatment carried out with the client sitting in a chair and is particularly beneficial for those who suffer with neck and shoulder tension, headaches, or simply have problems with switching off. There is no need to remove clothing and is ideally carried out over a T shirt. Oil is generally not used. The upper arms, shoulders, neck and scalp are massaged and an extra few minutes can be spent with the client lying down for a short pressure point face massage. IHM can be combined with reflexology or Thai Foot Massage in an hours session.
PRESSURE POINT FACE MASSAGE
As well as facial massage (using cream with essential oils), this also includes a scalp and neck massage. As it is quite a short treatment (about 20 minutes), it can easily be included in an hours reflexology session or added on to an Indian Head Massage.
RELAXATION AND GUIDED VISUALISATION EXERCISES
A deep relaxation exercise can be undertaken either before or after your reflexology treatment. The client lies in a comfortable position and I talk him/her through a deep breathing exercise, a muscular relaxation exercise and finally a mental visualisation exercise to calm and quieten the mind. A separate appointment can also be made for a longer tailor made session which might be beneficial if a client is experiencing a degree of anxiety or wishes to relax and prepare for significant events such as giving birth or surgery.
