Celebrating #StressAwarenessWeek with #massage and #aromatherapy in Exeter, Devon

I’m celebrating #StressAwarenessMonth by offering new, improved bargain prices for my treatments . Having a one-off massage can be a pleasant and relaxing experience. However, to combat the long-term effects of stress, such as poor digestion, low immunity, low mood and poor sleep, a course of massage treatments at regular intervals, such as fortnightly or monthly, may have more long-term benefits, by helping to rebalance your nervous system. The essential oils which I use for aromatherapy help enormously with stress, as their…

The Interstitium: More Research on the Fascia, by Another Name

Scientists are claiming to have discovered a new organ, the interstitium. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/new-organ-human-body-interstitium-cancer-skin-scientists-discovery-new-york-a8275851.html   This is not news at all though. They are actually talking about the ground substance of the fascia, which researchers and myofascial therapists have been discussing for a good while now. Take a look at this excellent response to the so-called news https://www.facebook.com/fascialconnections.ca/   As Guimberteau concludes, the main thing here is that any publicity concerning fascial research and the importance of the fascia for our health…

Massage on the NHS

Many people view massage as a luxury, rather than a necessity. When money is tight, massage goes on the back burner. However, as a massage therapist, I have first-hand experience of how it has helped people when conventional medication could only do so much to alleviate chronic, unpleasant symptoms.   I would never claim to have cured anyone. However, I have seen countless massage and aromatherapy clients who have spontaneously reduced their pain-relieving medication, started sleeping better and experienced markedly…

Client assessment: why bother?

When you come to me for your first massage, one of the first things I shall do is a thorough assessment. I shall ask questions about your health and lifestyle, especially aspects which may be relevant to your current pain or tension.

A Festive Aromatherapy Massage

Have you ever thought about having a holistic aromatherapy massage with a Christmas theme? I had the pleasure of doing this for a client this time last year and he loved it, so now I’m offering the same to you. Imagine lying on a comfy couch with a heated blanket warming you right down to your toes; being massaged with Christmassy oils, like cinnamon, orange, Christmas tree and frankincense; your favourite Christmas carols are playing quietly in the background. After…

Aromatherapy and Conventional Medicine: Working Together

I have been trying to extract a pearl of wisdom from an extracted wisdom tooth over the last couple of weeks. The process has not been exactly simple. Firstly, the extraction of an impacted, decayed, partially erupted wisdom tooth is never straightforward. (This means that the tooth was turned over on its side, rotten and had not fully come through the gum.) Secondly, the remaining gap developed an infection of the underlying bone, known as a dry socket. As a…
