Taster Week @ Wee Sally Therapeutic Massage

Here at Wee Sally we offer a myriad of treatments. Ever wanted to try reflexology foot massage? How about a relaxing reiki session? Or maybe you want to sample some deep tissue massage? It seems that many of our clients are curious about the wide range of modalities that we offer, so we've decided to run a complimentary 'taster' week, running from the 27th - 31st of March.

The details:

* Book in a free 10 minute mini-treatment to sample what we have available (limit of two per person over the course of the week, one per day).

* You may add on a free mini-treat onto any pre-booked appointment: just let us know at the time of booking to avoid disappointment on the day.

* Modalities on offer include: deep tissue, swedish massage, lymphatic drainage, relaxation massage, reiki, reflexology (hand and foot), head and/or facial massage. Call us on 01506-238366 to have a chat about which treatment is right for you.

* As a special gift to you, every full-length massage booked with Susan,our resident aromatherapist, will include a complimentary aromatherapy blend for use during the treatment or for you to take home. Susan will be happy to make up a blend especially tailored to your needs.

The clinic will also be well-stocked with gift bags filled with goodies for one and all (no need to book a full treatment). So try something new this Spring and hop into Wee Sally for a little on-the-spot pampering! (Or call us on 01506-238366 to book your free taster today!)


Thank you!

It's been an amazing whirlwind week for us at the clinic, but I wanted to drop a quick note to say Thank You to everyone who has supported us through our Living Social deal that ran on Monday. We were pleased with the results and hope that each of you who participated in the deal enjoys the service you receive.

We still have plenty of availability for both Bathgate and Edinburgh Locations, and welcome your calls to book your appointments, or answer any questions that you may have.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Thank you for considering this opportunity, I look forward to seeing you at your next appointment.

Beyond your treatment

Massage treatments are effective in relieving pain, and providing comfort at the time, however it is important to consider the advice offered to you by your therapist to ensure long term relief and improvement.
Educating our clients on ways to reduce the instance of pain or injury is very important to us, so we have decided to offer up for dowload a series of informational articles covering the most common complaints we hear at the clinic.

To review our list of documents and download your own copy please visit our Self Help page.

If you have any ailments you would like to see an article on, please let us know and we'll write one up for you.

Recovery and long term relief is our goal, and we want to do what we can to help you reach that goal.

Commit to your health and Save Money.

Purchasing block bookings for massage, will not only allow you to schedule several massages in advance, making sure that you make a commitment to your health, but you will also pay less than you would if you pay for your massage session each month.

Our clinic currently offers two Massage blocks for purchase:

5 x 1 hour appointments £140 a saving of £35
10 x 1 hour appointments £270 a saving of £80

There is no expiration on these packages, and you can add on extra time to an appointment for a discounted rate.

The benefits of massage are extensive and include the ability to reduce stress, relieve muscle tension and evoke feelings of calmness and relaxation.

Growing evidence suggests that if you allow regular periods of massage in your schedule you will gain a sense of wellbeing be fitter and be healthier in mind and body.

The benefits of massage include:

o Enhanced flexibility and circulation

o Encourages lymphatic flow

o Assists venous flow of blood

o Reduces edema

o Stimulates sensory receptors of the skin and subcutaneous tissues

o Improved self-esteem

o Provides gentle stretching of the tissues

o Encourages endorphin release

o Stimulates or soothes nerves

Massage isn't capable of curing any serious or life-threatening medical disorder. The benefits of massage however, can provide welcome relief from back pain, muscle pain, headache and symptomatic relief of some psychological disorders.

How often?

I am sometimes asked by new clients, how often should they schedule for another massage.
As a therapist, this is a really tough question to answer, however I will share my views on the subject, and allow you to decide for yourself.

In an ideal world, one I certainly wish I could afford to live in, we would all get massages about once a week.
What a great way to reduce stress and help maintain good health, and physical fitness.
Sadly this is seldom possible for most people, so my thought is this:
Come as often as your wallet and your schedule will permit!

This may be once every two weeks, once a month, once every two months, the goal is to make you feel good, and to make Massage a regular part of your healthcare routine.
If you are suffering from an Injury that is being treated, the first few weeks of treatment are most important, so 1-2 sessions a week for the first week or two of treatment is ideal, but again, its not always possible or financially viable for people to do this, so as long as you take care of yourself between sessions and follow any recommendations for aftercare, you should still do well in your recovery.

Ask me about ways to treat yourself at home, or for suggestions on stretching after your workout routine. I love sharing this type of information with people.

Affordability is the biggest concern, especially when things in the economy are as tough as they are right now. Massage is viewed as a luxury, and one of the first things to go when people start living on budgets. However when you consider how much longevity you can receive in your health from regular massage, it may pay to keep up those appointments. Research has shown that people who receive regular massage often take less "sick leave" from work, and are generally happier employees. Your Immune system benefits, so you become less reliant on medicines to treat things like viruses and infections.

I have tried to ensure that I have priced my massage at a point where it doesnt break the bank.
Think of all the ways you could save that £35 a month to put towards your massage*?

Remember your body is the only you'll ever have, treat it with love, care and attention and it will take care of you and carry you for a long, long time.

Hot & Cold Stone Therapy now Available

Over the last few months many clients have asked about the availability of Hot Stone Massage.

I am pleased to announce that we now offer Hot and Cold Stone therapy treatments eithehr as a stand alone  service, or in conjunction with our regular massage.

There are several different methods of using stones in a Massage treatment.

Placement: Placement involves positioning the stones on certain areas of the body, and resting them there to allow the heat to penetrate the muscle tissue and assist in relaxing the muscles to allow deeper penetration when massaging those areas.

Gliding and massage: Effective hot stone massage  uses tthe stones as tools to deliver effective tissue and muscle masage at a pressure level that the client is cmofortable with.

The heat from the stones relaxes muscles andincreases blood flow to the  area beeing worked, assisting in the acceleration of the healing process.

Call now to book your next massage session, and why not ask for Hot Stones to be incorporated into your session.

As a warm up for winter, why not have a relaxing hot stone massage to help fight off those winter chills and the stressors of the holiday season.

Caught in the rain?

Now that rainy season is here, the chances of you getting caught in the rain while out running errands in Bathgate is pretty high. Why not pop into the clinic on North Bridge Street, warm up, dry off and enjoy a relaxing 10 minute chair massage for just £5??
