What to expect:The treatment itself covers shoulders and a little bit of the back, the neck, head and face. On your arrival we’ll have a bit of settling in and uncovering where-you-and-your-body-are-at-right-now time. There will be some lovely smells wafting around along with some ambient music to help guide you back to experiencing your full senses. There will be a soft, rosy glow cast by my Himalayan salt lamp to support your body in switching into relaxation mode.
To start the treatment off, if that feels good for you, I’ll help you tune in to your body and tap into your relaxation response by playing the singing bowl.During your treatment I will support you in grounding into your body with some mindful breathing. Whilst there is a collection of techniques and a flow for the treatment that I follow, each body holds tension in different places and each person finds relief in different spaces so I intuitively tap into what you most need and tailor your treatment accordingly. There is a wonderful combination of relaxing and firm strokes to provide release across your shoulders, back, neck, head and face.
If you have chosen to add on a hair oiling treatment to your massage, I will choose an oil according to your needs. Either way, you’ll get time to sit and allow the treatment to settle afterwards and, if you choose, share your discoveries and receive a few tips for home self care.
