Holistic massage is an ancient method of healing that clears the lymphatic drainage system and releases toxins from the body. The term "holistic" derives from the ancient Greek word "holos," which means "whole." By definition, holistic massage treats the whole of the body as a single unity. By recognizing that illness and stress affects not only our physical but also our emotional, spiritual and mental well-being, holistic massage allows the body's natural healing abilities to come forth and balance the entire body as a whole.
Holistic massage techniques have been used for thousands of years in Egypt, China and India
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A HOLISTIC MASSAGE TREATMENT?
A medical consultation will take place, so the therapist has a clear idea of what you require and tailor the session to meet the needs of the client.
The therapist will discuss exactly how the session will go, i.e. what areas need to be concentrated on. You will be left to undress down to underwear and get comfortable on the couch. During the massage only the part of the body being massage will be exposed at any time, the rest being covered in warm towels.
After the massage you will be offered a glass of water to help flush out any toxins that may have been released. Alcohol and heavy meals should ideally be avoided, bubble baths and an early night are highly recommended!
