A Powerful Tool
There is no escaping the power of bodywork. Whatever your reasons for trying it (a nice treat, pain management, or stress relief), or the lovely descriptions therapists use to describe it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic), massage therapy is a powerful tool in any healthy lifestyle habit.
Experts indicate that stress is the cause of over 90% of ill health and disease. Nothing else ages us faster, internally and externally than high levels of stress.
During stressful experiences, the sympathetic nervous system floods your system with adrenaline. Your heartbeat increases and blood pumps to the muscles ready to fight or run. Muscles tighten, and the breath restricts. You stop digesting, and your brain shuts down making it difficult to think. Cortisol is released into the system and undermines our immune system. In the short term, we can cope with some level of stress, but when this level of stress is left unattended to for prolonged periods, we are subjecting our bodies to more serious ill health and diseases.
While eliminating anxiety and pressure in this modern, fast-paced world may be idealistic, its' not realistic. However, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress by:
Enhancing sleep quality
Boosting energy and lowering fatigue
Clients often report a sense of balance after a massage
As each person has a different reason for massage, I can use different techniques (stretches, gentle massage, deep tissue massage, hands-free or relaxation work) to ensure you achieve your desired outcome. So, whether you want to pamper yourself, work a painful area, promote injury recovery, or just gain a sense of overall well-being, then this can easily be achieved with holistic massage.
What my clients say
"I had the most amazing back, neck and shoulder massage with Sharon today. I have been working long hours from home over the last few weeks and was suffering backache and very tense, aching shoulders and neck. Just an hour with Sharon and all of that pain and stiffness has melted away."
"I visited Sharon for the first time this morning for a full body massage. This was as much about relaxation and mental wellbeing as it was for tension release in my shoulders.
Sharon was very friendly and welcoming. She took the time to discuss my needs and what would be involved in the treatment. The massage was amazing, very professional and exactly what I needed. I left feeling much calmer, with more movement in my neck and ready to face the day. I would recommend Sharon in a heartbeat and am already planning my next visit."
“Went for my first treatment today a 60 minute back massage and it was fantastic. I feel so relaxed. Sharon was so welcoming and I have now booked in again for another treatment.”
“Sharon is very knowledgable and skilled. She has made a vast difference to my back health in the last ten-eleven months. Highly recommended!”
“My Husband booked me for a lovely well needed full body massage. It was lovely. very relaxing and the bed was super comfy. will definitely be booking again.”
"Sharon was amazing! So professional, she knows exactly what she is doing, she creates such a relaxing atmosphere. I will certainly be back for more! I would recommend her to anyone"
"The back massage has made a positive difference to my physical health. I have a lot of confidence in Sharon’s knowledge and expertise, she always listens carefully to what you have to say, and tailors each treatment to meet your individual needs. Sharon is incredibly professional, and always friendly and welcoming, so that all my visits are a real treat."
