Frequently asked questions

What is massage?

The University of Minesota define massage as 'the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments) to enhance health and well-being'.

Massage can help you sleep better and can increase concentration, reduce anxiety and promote relaxation.

In addition, during the massage, you gain all the benefits of having time to yourself, to breathe, rest and recover.

How can massage help me?

According to Bruce Lipton, a former medical school professor and research scientist. The body can be in one of two states: Fight and Flight (or under stress) or Growth and Repair.

Massage helps your body return to the state of Growth and Repair. It also feels nice!

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a skilled communication aimed at directing a person’s imagination in a way that helps elicit changes in some perceptions, sensations, feelings, thoughts and behaviours.

In a typical hypnotherapy session the hypnotherapist and client will discuss the intended alterations or therapeutic goals desired. The hypnotherapist will ask questions about previous medical history, general health and lifestyle to decide on the best approach for the individual.

Hypnotherapy may be found to be helpful for those seeking relief from a range of problems and is used alongside a person’s own willpower and motivation to seek a desired goal. It is often used to help relieve anxiety, aid sleeping, address attitudes to weight, and help clients achieve behavioural change to stop smoking.

It may also help with minor skin conditions that are exacerbated by stress and confidence issues, and may also be used to enhance performance in areas such as sport and public speaking.
