Massage (Holistic)

July 18, 2015

This involves a variety of techniques designed to relax muscles, increase oxygen in the blood and release toxins from muscles. Stroking in the direction of the heart stimulates circulation and flushes the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes, all of which help shorten recovery time after muscle strain. As well as providing specific medical benefits, holistic massage improves general health and wellbeing.

HelenHelen began her training at Shepton Mallet Adult Learning in 2002 and completed her training in 2006. Helen has always had an interest in holistic therapy and thinks that this probably started when she was a child mixing flower petals in her parent’s garden!

Helen is experienced in working with people with cancer and as well as working at Neal’s Yard Remedies Helen is also a member of the therapy team and RNID Poolemead in Bath providing massage and aromatherapy treatments for deaf and deaf/blind adults with additional learning difficulties.

Helen finds all areas of her work extremely rewarding and – as she puts it – finally found out what she wanted to do when she left school 20 years after she had left!

Jeremy Dymond

After experiencing the many benefits of massage myself I eagerly completed my professional training at Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork (BCMB) and realised I had an aptitude and passion for this work.

From this strong base I have continued to develop my work through professional advanced courses and am now an Assistant Tutor at BCMB

Throughout my work I am continually looking to find the most effective and appropriate ways to use the techniques I have learnt. This helps me to give care and focus to my clients whether the work is soft and gentle or satisfyingly firm.

My aim is to make the process as soothing as the outcome.

“Central to my approach is a warm, nurturing touch rooted in a sensitive and responsive connection between us.  Although every client is unique there are universal human needs which I am attuned to throughout the treatment.
The Siddha Marmani Massage (Marma Point Massage) is a relaxing remedy rarely found outside of India; due, in part, to the protected Siddha lineage it hails from. The Siddha System is the oldest traditional treatment system in the world and deeply guarded. I hold my training in great esteem and feel honoured to have learnt this practice under an indian teacher who worked for many years to gain the respect and trust of her master-teacher so that she too could share this powerful treatment with her students. Each body contains 107 ‘marma points’ and the systematic stimulation of each; interspersed with varied flowing strokes can facilitate and accelerate the systems natural healing capabilities.
Alongside and sometimes combined with reiki energy and the specialised Indian head; neck and upper back massage, my offering is balancing, thorough and deep and addresses all manner of weaknesses, ailments, discomforts and emotional-needs. If you want to try something different; you won’t look back. One client described the treatment as “like a tune-up” ”.

I gained a special interest in holistic health, wellness and natural beauty on my travels around the world. Having worked in the fashion industry for many years and still modelling well into my fifties -I have had a vested interest in how to look and feel ones best totally naturally!

I am trained in Reiki, Cranio-Sacral Therapy , Reflexologist AOR and specialise in maternity treatments often combining aromatherapy, massage and reflexology. Rejuvanessence and Facial Energy Release- face therapy. Qualified in Advanced Massage in 1990 and became an IFPA registered Aromatherapist and Rejuvanessence® practitioner in 1991.

Please take a look at my own website carolinejosling.com

My treatments often draw on a mélange of all these techniques with a strong holistic lean; I offer advice on how to optimise health naturally with life- style and supplements suggestions whilst complementing any conventional medical treatment. In a busy and often stressful world I believe that treatments can restore and revive the person, as well as offering support whilst going through a stressful time, recovering from illness, low energy or grief. Treatments can help to release pent up stress and tension to help you regain balance.

I have run many practitioner trainings since 2004 /2013 for The International Institute of Rejuvanessence and now run practitioner trainings in Facial Energy Release-face therapy.

Facial Energy Release – face therapy

This is a wonderful life-enhancing therapy that soothes away the ravages of modern life. Unique fingertip holistic therapy also known as “Angels Touch”.

It includes gentle, very precise massage of the 91 muscles of the face, neck skull and shoulders whilst also working on facial connective tissue making it more elastic and flexible.

As well as looking younger, clients often say that they feel invigorated, rejuvenated, healing.  Blissfully hypnotic touch works on lymph, acupuncture points releasing blocked energy and tension. A course of Facial Energy Release comprises of six sessions of 80 minutes each working on different groups of connective tissue and muscles.

Keiko KishimotoSince I first trained as a holistic therapist, I have constantly updated my skill and knowledge.  Now I offer a wide range of holistic treatments and, depending on your needs or conditions I carefully choose your treatment plan with you. All my treatments are tailor made to ensure you have a truly holistic experience.

I use combinations of different techniques for my massages which allow me to range from a firm pressure to a delicate touch, which helps to release the tension seated in any depth of tissue.
I have an extensive knowledge of aromatherapy and use this for my treatments. Aromatherapy and holistic treatments work wonderfully together and I take pride in this combination which helps not only reduce physical problems but may also bring emotional relief as well. My treatments are always based on ‘de-stressing’ and you can feel both physically and mentally lighter after my treatment.

Maternity and gynaecological care also feature heavily in my range of treatments. My extensive training in this field brings a deep understanding of the needs of women and enables me to extend my treatments to help with hormonal, physical and emotional changes for any stages of women’s life.

I’m passionate about many forms of alternative health and complementary medicine, but holistic massage therapy is my chosen path of expertise. I started out on a completely different path in life, studying politics and economics up to Master’s level at the London School of Economics. After spending a few years working for some well-known international organisations, I took the decision to embark on a career change to pursue my passions of holistic healing and organic living.

After gaining some experience in these areas during my travels around the world, I returned home and studied to MTI level 4 (CertHE) in Holistic Massage Therapy under a master Osteopath and Massage Therapist. This course also included a solid grounding in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology, so if you suffer from a chronic musculoskeletal or immune disorder, I’ll approach your needs as an individual. However, should you simply need a relaxing massage, you will be in good hands too!

Leora Sharp - Healing massage and bodywork

Specialisation

I am here to help women through difficult times. I offer safe and supportive massage during bereavement, illness and any other mentally and emotionally challenging and stressful times.

About Leora

The treatments are deeply nurturing, relaxing, restorative, therapeutic and healing. Each treatment is different and together, we plan each session according to your needs.

The sessions can be gentle and will leave you peaceful and nurtured. We will also explore post treatment self-care options.

Through massage and bodywork we can work effectively to remove tension and niggling knots that build through stress. Working therapeutically and energetically, we can release emotional blockages and effectively support, guide and empower you to keep moving forward.

Nurturing massage can also be beneficial for your family, so they too can feel restored and supported.

I look forward to supporting your body, mind and soul with effective care.
