Swedish Massage

A Swedish Massage is perfect for those who have tense aching muscles. It provides a mix of relaxing and energizing movements, which helps to promote blood flow and lymphatic drainage.

Clients who work at a desk may require a release of tension to their neck and shoulder area. However they may not quite require the effects of a deeper massage. This is where a Swedish treatment may well be perfect.

A series of movements will be used throughout a Swedish Massage including effleurage which are long incredibly relaxing movements. This is followed by petrissage, which will help work through any knots and tension you may have. Hacking and cupping (which does not hurt) will be used to help promote blood flow and release toxins in the body. 

A Swedish Massage can focus on the upper body working the back, neck and shoulders. As well as the lower body helping to relieve the thighs, calf muscles and feet of aches and pains.

Duration – 60 minutes      Price – £45.00 mobile / from £50.00 salon

Head, Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage 

A massage focused around the head, back, neck and shoulders can be revitalising. Many people carry the weight of the world on their shoulders and feel a great sense of discomfort. A massage focusing on relaxing the neck and shoulder muscles can provide deep relief from aches and pains.

A head massage helps to relieve stress. It is a great mood lifter and helps to fight feelings of anxiety. As such, many people following a head massage feel their thoughts have cleared. Head massaging also helps with headaches as it improves circulation to the head and neck area. Regular head massage can also promote hair growth, as the small arteries within your scalp dilate. This increases blood flow to the follicles. As a result, this makes the hair thicker and stronger over time.

Deep Tissue Massage

A Deep Tissue Massage is perfect for clients who are perhaps athletes, runners and dancers. It is aimed at those who follow intense forms of exercise. Clients may alternatively follow a highly active lifestyle. Perhaps occupation results in an intensive day on the body. This type of client will most likely suffer with a build up of lactic acid, which results in tight muscles.

Deep Tissue Massages are designed to target the inner layers focusing on the muscles, tendons, fascia and connective tissue. Movements used in a Deep Tissue Massage are very similar to that of a Swedish Massage. The difference is that there is far more pressure.

This type of massage facilitates healing by releasing contracted areas of muscle and tissue. It can help increase blood flow to the soft tissues and may help to reduce inflammation. Clients following a Deep Tissue Massage should feel a great sense of release from the pain and tension with which they were suffering. However more than one session may be required to receive optimal benefits.

Reflexology with Helen

Reflexology is a wonderful and deeply relaxing therapy treatment. The application of pressure to areas on the feet is connected to the organs and systems of the body. 

This gentle treatment helps to alleviate stress and may help to lower cortisol levels in the client. 

The theory behind reflexology is that areas of the foot correspond to organs and systems of the body. Pressure applied to the foot is believed to bring relaxation and healing to the corresponding area of the body.

Reflexologists use foot charts to guide them as they apply pressure to specific areas. Several studies indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as stress and anxiety, and enhance relaxation and sleep. Given that reflexology is also low risk, it can be a reasonable option if you’re seeking relaxation and stress relief.

What To Expect During Massage Treatments

Ready for your massage treatments in Medway? At Reflections Massage and Wellbeing, you will be greeted by your therapist, either at a salon of your choice or at your home. Home massages are for ladies only. Gents can enjoy a massage at a salon location.

Covid-19 Safety Measures

Covid-19 safety precautions will follow subject to government guidelines. You should expect the therapist to wear PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). This will include a surgical face mask, face visor, apron and gloves. As a client you will be expected to also wear a face covering. Both the therapist and client should ensure hands are clean and hygienic. This should be done through the use of either washing for a minimum of 20 seconds or by using hand sanitiser. The environment and equipment will be cleaned and sanitised by the therapist.

Consultation

First the client will receive an in-depth consultation from the massage therapist. This is in order to learn of any medical history and possible contraindications. A contraindication is an instance whereby a particular treatment cannot be carried out. This would be due to a specific situation which could cause harm to either the client or the therapist, or which could cause the spread of infection to other clients. For example certain conditions may require the client to seek medical assistance prior to receiving any form of massage treatment. If a contraindication is found, the massage therapist will make the client aware of this. Your therapist will also fully explain the reasoning behind any decision to avoid a certain area or not to carry out a massage treatment at that time.

At the point of carrying out the consultation, the massage therapist will complete a record card, which will include details of the client. This information is all highly confidential and must by law follow GDPR guidelines, meaning your data will be stored securely and will not be shared. It is an insurance requirement for all clients to complete a record card prior to receiving any form of massage treatments in Medway.

All being well, the massage therapist will ask which areas you would like focusing on the most. This is the client’s time and so the therapist will appreciate and respect any form of professional massage treatment the client requires.

Under 18s

Any client who is under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The responsible adult must stay in the room for the duration of the treatment. 

Getting Prepared

All being well, the massage therapist will leave the room, allowing time for the client to undress and make themselves comfortable on the massage couch. Underwear should be left on for both males and females, however bras may be removed for back massage treatments. Clients should cover themselves with the blankets and towels provided. 

The therapist will give a gentle knock and ask if it is suitable to enter the room. Only following the client’s instruction will the therapist enter. 

During The Treatment

During the treatment, the therapist will at intervals ask if the pressure is suitable. At this point the client should say whether they would prefer more or less pressure. At any point the client must notify the therapist if they feel uncomfortable in any way. This could be due to the pressure, the temperature of the room or for anything other.

Once the treatment is complete, the therapist will leave the room allowing time for the client to redress.
