Lis Green - Ostara Massage Therapy
Holistic Massage, as suggested by its name, aims to treat the whole person - mind, body and spirit. It works on both a physical level by improving circulation and the removal of toxins from the system, whilst calming the mind and reducing tension and stress.
Whether you have specific areas of tension or are just generally tired or stressed, Holistic Massage offers the opportunity to relax and enjoy some valuable 'me-time'. Massage can help improve your sense of general wellbeing and release tension in tight muscles, promoting good health.
I also offer Indian Head Massage, a therapy derived from ancient Ayurvedic traditions, which is surprisingly relaxing despite its vigorous nature. It tackles tension in the neck, shoulders and scalp, helping to reduce stress, tiredness and related headaches.
I usually welcome clients to my therapy room at home but am sometimes able to arrange home visits for those clients who might find it difficult to get here. Holistic massage does require the removal of some clothing but towels are provided and, during the treatment, only the part of the body being massaged will be exposed. Comfort and dignity are key at all times. Indian Head Massage can be carried out through a T-shirt or, using oil, with the shoulders exposed.
Prior to the first treatment, clients will be asked to complete a detailed consultation form, to ensure that any medical conditions are considered and that a course of treatment is tailored specifically to the individual. For this reason, clients are requested to allow 20 minutes extra on the first visit. After the massage, a glass of water will be offered to help flush out toxins.
