Clinical Acupuncture

I mainly use acupuncture alongside my massage treatments to help release the tension in your muscles as well as the blockages in your meridians.

    As a natural form of healing, Acupuncture can have the following benefits:

  • Provides drug free pain relief.
  • Effectively treats a wide range of acute and chronic ailments
  • Treats the underlying cause of disease and illness as well as the symptoms
  • Takes a holistic approach to treatment of illnesses; links the body, mind and emotions
  • Reduces neurological conditions- including headaches, migraines and, difficulty in sleeping.
  • Prevents/helps cardiovascular disorders, including- high/low blood pressure, fluid retention, poor circulation, cold hands and feet and muscle cramps.
  • Improves respiratory conditions, including - bronchial asthma, acute and chronic bronchitis, sinusitis, hay fever and colds.
  • Helps digestive disorders, as well as diarrhoea, constipation and weight control.
  • Reduces gynaecological disorders,-including premenstrual tension, painful heavy or irregular periods, hormonal disturbances and disorders associated with menopause and prolapse.
  • Relieves skin conditions, including-eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.
  • Improves psychological conditions, including depression, anxiety, nervousness and addictions, such as smoking.

Does it hurt?  Everyone feels pain at different levels and many pain sensations. For most clients, the insertion of the needles is an anti-climax. The needles are much smaller than those used for injections, but occasionally it can hurt. Some points are very sensitive, but normally this feeling goes away very quickly.

 

  • Inversion therapy at Massage Therapy Winchester

Inversion Therapy

The idea of hanging upside- down as a remedy for back ache has been around since Roman times. The simple logic is to use gravity to repair the damage that gravity itself has caused.

Like the cushions on a sofa, the discs separating our vertebrae become flattened and misshapen over time, from the relentless downward pressure of gravity. Whilst our bodies strive to repair the damage overnight, lying in bed only alleviates 75% of the strain on our backs,-as attested by the fact that we shrink with age.

Also did you know that you can lose up to 2cm in height daily from the effects of gravity, regaining some when asleep.

Nerves which have been pinched by flattened or distorted discs are once again given room to "breathe". As the muscles and ligaments which hold your back in position let go and relax, your spine has little choice but to rediscover its natural shape.

  • Relieves back pain-relaxes muscles, rehydrates discs, realigns and reduces pressure.
  • Eases stress- releases tension in shoulders, neck and back
  • Improves joint health- decompresses, strengthens and enhances shock absorption
  • Increases flexibility- improves functional fitness for an active, healthy lifestyle.

Pregnancy Massage

Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and oedema (or swelling).

In addition, after the first trimester, massage for pregnant women reduces stress on weight-bearing joints; encourages blood and lymph circulation; helps to relax nervous tension, which aids in better sleep and helps relieve depression or anxiety, caused by hormonal changes.

While a massage can't promise that your new-born will sleep through the night, it can provide you with a better night's sleep both during pregnancy and afterwards. Regular massage therapy not only helps diminish anxiety and discomfort, but boosts relaxation as well. This ultimately can lead to improved sleep patterns.

Reflexology - Foot massage

Reflexology is not simply a ‘foot rub’. It is a safe, non-intrusive and very effective natural healing art, based on the principal that there are reflexes in the head, hands, ears as well as the feet that relate to all of the organs and systems of the body. 

These reflexes are like 'pressure' points, and stimulating them, with various techniques, helps to increase the flow of energy to corresponding areas of the body.

Occasionally hard little 'beads of crystals' can be felt in the feet, these are believed to be deposits of toxins that have settled in the feet. By working these areas, I break up the deposits, helping to detox and cleanse the body..

Conditions that may benefit from Reflexology include :

  • Stress                         
  • Anxiety
  • Migraines
  • Depression
  • Sleep issues  
  • Hormonal issues    
  • Infertility    
  • Digestive issues    
  • Respiratory problems
