  • Sports Massage and Reflexology in Salisbury | Massage Therapy for Wiltshire
    I have been working as a therapist You may need a Deep Tissue Sports Massage in one session and at other times you may be feeling stressed and prefer to have some Reflexology Reiki or a Relaxing Massage Therapy with Essential Oils TOUCH THERAPIES AND STRESS RELIEF The skin is the body s largest sensory organ Thousands of specialised receptors in the skin react to external stimuli by sending messages to the brain this helps the brain to focus on the present moment rather than staying involved with worries and often helps the person receiving the treatment to relax As stress is reported to accompany many ailments then relaxation and stress relief must therefore be of huge importance to help us cope with our busy lives THE IMPORTANCE OF RELAXATION Many people find it difficult to relax Even when we are asleep we do not always achieve deep relaxation as a stressed mind and tight muscles can interrupt sleep In order to achieve total relaxation it is necessary to rest both the body and the mind which means that we must attempt to let go of our worries This can be achieved by activities such as yoga breathing work tai chi and meditation or by relaxing touch therapies that include Relaxing Massage Therapy Reflexology or Reiki These therapies are believed to calm the nervous system by encouraging the release of the neurotransmitter hormones serotonin and dopamine which calm our emotions and give us a sense of well being and contentment This can interrupt the stress cycle and give us a bit of breathing space from our hectic lives and also allow the body the opportunity to cleanse and repair itself I work in a fully equipped and tranquil treatment room which encourages relaxation and helps you to unwind I am

    a fully equipped and tranquil treatment room which encourages relaxation and helps you to unwind QUALIFICATIONS REIKI My training in Reiki was with Debbie McDougall based on the original teachings of Mikao Usui Reiki s Founder which is now being introduced to the West by renowned Reiki Master Taggart King SPORTS MASSAGE at the Holistic Academy with Camilla Davies REFLEXOLOGY at The Holistic School of Reflexology a course accredited by The Association of Reflexologists Also trained in Vertical Reflexology Cranio Sacral Reflexology and Aromatherapy CONTRAINDICATIONS Massage and Reflexology are natural but due to the increase in circulation that is achieved there are certain situations when treatment should not be performed these are called contraindications which means that the treatment might be detrimental rather than beneficial There are three types of contraindication TOTAL when treatment should not be given at all Such as Any disease that is infectious recent operations or injuries anyone under the influence of drugs or alcohol fever during the first three months of pregnancy MEDICAL when treatment can only go ahead once permission has been given by a medical practitioner Such as high dose medication any Cardio vascular disorder Oedema Osteoporosis Cancer Psychotic disorders Epilepsy Diabetes LOCAL this is when treatment can be given providing the affected area is avoided Such as Cuts and bruises Varicose veins Inflammation It is of the UTMOST IMPORTANCE that you inform your therapist of any conditions that you have or that may occur during your course of treatment ABOUT THE TREATMENTS Before we commence with your treatment I will explain what is going to happen and the effects that you can expect after this you will be left alone to get changed and a towel will be provided to cover you Men are expected to wear underwear at all times You will be offered further coverings a heated pad and or hot stones for added warmth in order to help warm muscles and for relaxation RESPONSES TO THE TREATMENT Due to this type of therapy s ability to stimulate the body s own healing power there may be some sort of response as the body rids itself of toxins A common response is an increase in the excretory systems as the body cleanses itself Sometimes the body is unable to excrete the toxins quickly enough which can lead to nausea headache fatigue and cold symptoms this is often referred to as a healing crises however these symptoms are temporary and will usually disappear within a few days More often there is a deep feeling of relaxation after a treatment followed by an increase in energy and a feeling of well being After a deep tissue massage you may experience delayed onset muscle soreness which feels similar to what we experience after intense exercise This is due to the knots having been broken down and the muscles being stretched but should quickly disappear It is of important that you tell your therapist if the pressure is too deep as each person has

  • TREATMENTS
    body INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE Indian Head Massage involves massage frictions and the stimulation of pressure points to the upper back arms neck face and head The physical action of the massage helps to break down and eliminate the build up of toxins in the body and also increases the circulation which brings vital nutrients to the head and brain resulting in a clearer mind and greater concentration Other benefits can include better hair growth and improved hair and skin condition Indian Head Massage is generally performed through the clothing with the recipient in a sitting position and does not have to involve oils making it the ideal massage treatment for the workplace However a face and head massage can also be given on a massage couch as part of a normal massage treatment REIKI Reiki was introduced to the west by Hawayo Takata which she modified in order to make it acceptable to the western population The training introduced by Reiki Master Taggart King is known as Reiki Evolution It blends the western style Reiki teaching with the very simple yet powerful methods developed by Reiki s founder Mikao Usui which until recently were not taught in the west The Japanese word Reiki means universal life force energy It is a way of channelling the energy that is inside and all around us It is not connected to any religious belief system and was introduced as a way of self healing to put our bodies and minds into a state of equilibrium The Reiki practitioner will channel the Reiki from the universe into the recipient simply by intention We are all connected with the universe and everything that surrounds us once we are attuned to Reiki we become more aware of this energy and learn to channel it for our own well being and for that of others Reiki often produces a deeply relaxed state similar to that achieved during meditation when the mind is relaxed it will allow the body to relax giving it the opportunity to heal and renew itself Please refer to my page on stress THE SCIENCE BEHIND REIKI There has been research carried out which suggests that during a treatment a practitioners hands will pulse in unison with the earth s magnetic field known as the Schuman s Resonance linking the practitioner to the energies of the earth which will in turn link with the recipient We all will instinctively hold an area that is hurting as this helps to ease the pain For more information on The Science Behind Rieki click on the following link www ttem forum index php topic 143 0 www ttem org forum index php topic 143 0 REIKI EMPOWERMENTS As part of the Reiki treatment I offer Reiki empowerments which will enable the client to channel Reiki for self treatment only between sessions AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE Massage is the most commonly used method for applying essential oils In general the massage techniques used during an aromatherapy massage are relaxing movements

  • TESTIMONIALS
    4am this morning with a growing fear that I may never move again my back being dangerously close to going into spasm I rang Chrissie for help Not only did she take my kids to school probably not part of her usual service but she then spent 2 hours doing her magic thing AND NOW I FEEL FINE the only conclusion is that Chrissie is very probably the best massage therapist around here by far thank you my dear friend and magic lady Xxx Jackie Cleary Hair Stylist Chrissie is like Heineken she gets to the parts that others don t reach Phillipa Norton Pharmaceutical Consultant I had suffered with headaches for 26 years then someone suggested that massage might help After two sessions with Chrissie my headaches have stopped Upholsterer and Dressmaker I had been suffering from unexplained pain in my ribs for a very long time and have tried many different therapies for this problem No one has hit the spot like Chrissie the pain eased after the first treatment Jackie Crook Project Manager I have used Chrissie over the last 3 years for massage on my problematic back and Achilles after going down the normal route Doctors Physio and specialists with little results I was then recommended to Chrissie and decided nothing ventured nothing gained After just 2 sessions my back felt brand new it was not just my back though Chrissie identified other areas that were contributing to my problem and put them right too I would highly recommend Chrissie to anyone very professional very reasonable prices and excellent at her job I feel like I have done 12 rounds with David Haye when she has finished with me but the results are worth it Mark Foakes Businessman I have had my fair share of massages from different therapists and I have to say that Chrissie has been the best she has a gift Every time I see Chrissie for a treatment we start off by discussing how I am feeling and what I want to achieve from the treatment For example if I need to switch off and relax she will do a relaxing massage with perhaps a foot massage or Reiki at the end If my shoulders and back are very tense she will do what I call a pummeling where she really gets into the muscle knots to release the tension This is then finished off with a relaxing massage She tailors each treatment to what I need and really listens I have noticed a big difference in my headaches tension and flexibility plus my stress levels Lydsay White Lawyer Chrissie s website doesn t actually say sports massage or deep muscle massage but that is what she can do and my current state suggests she is bloody good at it too Ciemon Dunville Runner My legs felt great cycling after my massage yesterday much better than they ever have my thighs have bothered me for the last year in fact I have

  • STRESS
    on the body s systems which in turn deplete energy levels When stress hormones flood the system the blood vessels that supply organs involved with exercise or fighting off danger dilate allowing a greater blood flow through their tissues The blood vessels that supply organs which are not essential to the fight or flight response such as the kidneys and the gastrointestinal tract actually constrict to enable the blood to go to where it is most needed The processes that are not essential for meeting the stressful situation are inhibited such as muscular movements of the gastrointestinal tract Digestive secretions slow down and may even stop for a while interrupting the normal activities of digestion and excretion The body needs to expel faecal matter regularly as this waste product provides a home for many unfriendly bacteria which will multiply and therefore could result in poor colon health and inflammation of its lining When the body relaxes the opposite of the fight or flight response occurs this is known as REST AND DIGEST During this period the bodily functions that conserve and restore energy during times of rest and recovery are more active The blood is diverted back to the digestive system and impulses are sent to the muscles of the gastrointestinal tract allowing energy supplying food to be digested and absorbed RELAXATION Relaxation has the opposite effect to that of stress on the body It will decrease the amount of adrenaline the stress hormone which in turn will lower blood pressure and therefore relieve pressure on the cardiovascular system It helps to increase the activity of white blood cells which will make the body less susceptible to illness Due to the body not being in a state of alert the blood supply will be diverted back to the digestive organs
