Greek word Holos meaning whole – This massage is based in
Swedish Massage (the strokes used etc) but takes into consideration
issues such as diet, environment etc with the aim of helping the
client to eradicate factors that cause some of the conditions being
treated – prevention is better than cure.
Sports & Remedial Therapy
This type of massage is a more
advanced technique often using deeper strokes in a more focused
treatment tailored to resolve a specific condition such as a sports
injury, (eg strains, sprains, tennis elbow), general injuries (RSI,
slips falls, accidents). It can also be used as a preventative or
pre / post event treatment.
As practiced in the west, Indian Head
Massage is a treatment focusing on the head, neck shoulders,
arms and back. It is often used as a stress buster because these
are areas of the body where much of our stress is held.
They are also the areas affected by using a keyboard, driving
and many sports so it can provide benefit to most people. Indian
head massage is performed with the client full clothed and without
oils so is quick and easy to administer.
Ayuredic Head Massage
This is a more traditional form of head massage and it incorporates
the use of oils.
