Full Body Swedish Massage

 

A relaxing and rejuvenating massage to improve well-being, de-stress and increase blood supply and circulation.

 

Head, Neck & Shoulder Massage

 

If your time is sparse I can come to your office or home and offer shorter treatments concentrating on those areas most prone to tension and soreness. This specialised treatment works deep into the neck and shoulder area and includes traction techniques to improve range of movement.

 

Sports & Deep Tissue Massage

 

Works very deeply into muscle fibres reducing muscle aches, tension and breaking down knots and areas of scar tissue in problem areas. This specialised deep connective tissue treatment uses both pressure and deep stretching techniques that is not only proven to be able to speed up rehabilitation time of an injury, but is also an excellent form of treatment for injury prevention.

 

Conditions that are treated include:

Stress | Sports Injuries | Muscle Tension | Spasm & Stiffness | Back, Neck & Shoulder Pain | Hip & Sciatic Pain | Whiplash | RSI | Carpel Tunnel Syndrome | Migraine & Headaches | Tennis & Golfers Elbow | Knee Pain | Shin Splints.

 

Philly applies a specialised combination of techniques such as TRIGGER POINT THERAPY, MYOFASCIAL RELEASE, FACILITATED STRETCHING and MEDICAL ACUPUNCTURE which are all effective in alleviating muscle pain, improving alignment and restoring balance to the body.

 

You don't need to be a sports person to benefit from the effects of sports massage.

 

Pregnancy Massage

 

A relaxing ante natal massage which can provide emotional support during all stages of pregnancy. Pressure can be from gentle and soothing through to using deeper pressure to alleviate those painful areas such as relief from back pain, achy hips, and heavy legs amongst the many other benefits.

 

Philly includes acupressure techniques within her routine which can be used for nausea, pre-birth preparation, common pregnancy symptoms,  induction of labour and pain relief in childbirth. 

 

Great care is taken with providing a purely relaxing environment using a blend of oils and making you feel as comfortable as possible so you can feel connected to your body and baby during a time of physical and emotional change. 

 

Baby Massage

 

Philly is a qualified Infant Massage Instructor with the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM). She runs 4 week courses for those parents and primary caregivers in the Brighton & Hove area who wish to learn how to massage their baby (from birth to one year old).

 

Baby Massage is a wonderful way for parents to use positive touch. This gives the opportunity for special time together, incorporating not only the massage but also therapeutic hugs and holds, fun with nursery rhymes and music.

Baby Massage is also a fantastic way for parent's to learn how their baby communicates with them, enabling parents to understand what their baby wants and comfort them with loving touch.
