Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping® gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and
range of motion. It is also used for Preventive Maintenance, Edema, and Pain Management.
Kinesio Taping® is a technique based on the body's own natural healing process. This Kinesio Taping®
exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically
stems from the science of Kinesiology, hence the name "Kinesio". Muscles are not only attributed to the
movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc.

Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms. Consequently,
so much attention was given to the importance of muscle function that the idea of treating the muscles in order
to activate the body's own healing process came about. Using an elastic tape, it was discovered that muscles
and other tissues could be helped by outside assistance.

The Kinesio Taping® is applied over muscles to reduce pain and
inflammation, relax overused tired muscles, and to support muscles in
movement on a 24hr/day basis. It is non-restrictive type of taping which allows
for full range of motion.

Examples of what Kinesio Tape can be  used for are: muscular facilitation or
inhibition in pediatric patients, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain
(subluxations, herniated disc), knee conditions, shoulder conditions,
hamstring, groin injury, rotator  cuff injury, whiplash, tennis elbow, plantar
fasciitis, patella tracking, pre and post surgical edema, ankle sprains, athletic
preventative injury method, and as a support method.

Your first consultation at Wee Sally Therapeutic Massage for Kinesio Taping is free.
Each new application there after will cost £4, or alternatively,  you can purchase a roll of Kinesio Tape fom the clinic for £8, and then have the tape applied for free during any of your Massage visits.

Reflexology Massage

Reflexology is a popular and relaxing treatment based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, tops, and sides of the feet correspond to areas throughout the body.
In this way, the feet can be seen as a map of the body.
Reflexologists work on the reflex points with their thumbs, fingers or knuckles, using specialised massage techniques, thought to help correct imbalances throughout the body.

Origins of Reflexology
The Chinese are said to have used an early form of Reflexology more than 5000 years ago in their use of pressure therapies. Egyptian tomb artwork also shows foot massage, indicating that working on the feet is an ancient practice, used in many cultures.

Modern reflexology, where the feet are divided into zones corresponding to areas within the body, was developed by Eunixe D. Ingham in the 1930s and is now a popular complementary therapy.

What happens during a Reflexology treatment?
A reflexology treatment lasts for approximately an hour. As it's just the feet that are usually worked on, you remain fully clothed, simply removing your shoes and socks.

You'll be invited to relax on a reclining chair or treatment table, or to put your feet up on a footstool.
Your feet will be cleansed at the start of the treatment and then a variety of reflexology techniques will be used, adapted to suit your individual needs.

Reflexology can also be carried out on hands, and ears as well as feet. The zones running through the feet also have corresponding zones in the hands and ears.

Can everyone enjoy Reflexology?
This therapy is suited for most adults but there are certain conditions where you should avoid Reflexology.
To ensure the continued well-being of clients, all treatments begin with a consultation, which enables your therapist to make sure that Reflexology is right for you. In some instances your Doctor's permission may be required before treatment commences, for example, if you have Diabetes.
A confidential record card will be kept with any relevant notes for future treatments.

After your treatment
To gain maximum benefit from Reflexology, it is advisable to drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol in the hours immediately after treatment. If you have any queries, don't hesitate to ask your therapist for advice.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy aims to treat the whole person by helping to restore the harmony of mind, body and spirit.

It works with the pure properties of plants, using their essential oils in a natural, complementary therapy which is said to help improve both physical and emotional well-being. Aromatherapy is often used in therapeutic massage with the benefits of relaxing or uplifting fragrances.

Origins of Aromatherapy
The ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks were among the first to appreciate the benefits of essential oils. Scientific studies in the 1920s confirmed that essential oils may be absorbed by the skin and reach the organs through the body's circulatory system.

What happens during treatment?
An Aromatherapy massage lasts for approximately one hour.  During the treatment, towels or linens are used to ensure your modesty. Aromatherapists regularly use up to 50 essential oils, and each has different therapeutic properties.

After a full consultation, the aromatherapist will carefully select a small number of essential oils to suit your individual needs. These oils are then blended with vegetable oil, known as a carrier oil, before being applied to the skin.

In addition to using essential oils in massage, your aromatherapist may put a few drops of essential oil in a steamer, oil burner, or humidifier, to spread the oil vapor throughout the treatment room. So, remember to breathe deeply and relax to enjoy those evocative aromas.

Hot Stone Massage

I am pleased to announce that we now offer Hot and Cold Stone therapy treatments either 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 the stones as tools to deliver effective tissue and muscle massage at a pressure level that the client is comfortable with.

The heat from the stones relaxes muscles and increases blood flow to the  area being 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.
