You may think that all massages are the same, pop a bit of oil on the skin and rub the muscles. What most people don’t understand or realise, is that\n there are hundreds of styles of massage and each has its unique way of helping a person with what they need.

\n

Some people need a nurturing style of massage for mental health, suffering from stress, anxiety, depression or feeling overwhelmed by work and life;\n and if you have a physically demanding job, train hard or play sport, you need a different type of massage to relax and release muscle tension.

\n

Massage can be beneficial when you are recuperating from illness, but not when you have the flu, a cold or cough as your body needs rest, not a massage.

\n\n\n

Massage therapy is about the physical, mental and emotional experience and works with three aspects of the body at the same time. Each aspect plays\n its part in helping the other two areas to totally relax: massage starts with the physical body as the therapist’s skilled hands work their\n magic and the body relaxes; the mind then has permission to switch off; and in turn, the emotions are signalled that ‘all is calm with the\n mind and body’.

\n

Communicating how you feel before a massage and understanding the massage styles offered should result in receiving the best massage for your needs.\n Massage therapists can’t read your mind, however, they can read your body.

\n\n

A lot of people think they need firm pressure or it’s a waste of time - ‘the no pain no gain’ type of thinking - but it depends on why you are having\n a massage as to the style and pressure you need to achieve results. Firm massage is best suited to athletes or those that suffer from tight areas\n that cause imbalances. It’s really important to understand that when you require a firm massage like remedial or deep tissue that you seek advice\n from a medical practitioner who will diagnose your problem correctly and also that you see

\n

Having a firm massage when your mental health is suffering may be read by your body as more stress, thus triggering your emotions to believe that something\n is wrong and mentally you won’t relax, nor will your muscles. For any mental health related relaxation, you need a massage that will nurture and\n soothe your body and mind so that you feel at peace and your mind can let go of the stress. Having a medium to lighter pressure massage is far\n more beneficial for relaxation to help with mental health such as stress, anxiety, lack of energy, feeling tired, run down or over worked.

\n

Whether for relaxation or to address issues within the body or mind, massage can provide the perfect solution to modern day stresses. The key is finding\n the right fit for your needs.

Treatment Tips

\n
    \n
  • Book a spa treatment for the first day of your holiday as this will help slow down your mind and body and get you in a relaxed holiday zone where\n you will feel so much better for the rest of your stay.
  • \n
  • If you really need to relax, book a 90 minute massage as it’s hard to relax in 60 minutes and cost wise it’s far better value.
  • \n
  • Make it worth the effort by arriving early for your treatment and allow time to relax after a treatment. Giving your mind and body time to slow\n down gives you a head start to relaxing and enjoying the benefits of your treatment as well as the spa gardens or facilities provided.
