Ladies Massages in Surrey
There are many different types of women’s massages to choose from and it is important to ensure you go for the style that suits you.
For example, you don’t want to go for a heavy pressure massage if you are dealing with a lot of pain, or go for a hot stones massage if you are experiencing hot flushes
Personal recommendations are often the way to find the right one, and where better to start than the Luna Ladies Massage in Surrey section of our directory.
I won’t lie…most people ask for a deep tissue massage but they don’t need one. Not that they don’t need a massage, trust their muscles they do! It’s the deep tissue that isn’t required. Deeper isn’t always better.
AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE SURREY
Aromatherapy massage treats clients for a variety of issues including asthma, sleep issues, fibromyalgia and menopause symptoms. Aromatherapy massage has the added advantage of the healing properties of essential oils from plants, herb and flowers, to be incorporated as part of a massage treatment. I also see many people for regular sessions who are serious about their self-care and who have massage as a ‘maintenance’ programme for their health and well-being.
SPORTS DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE FOR ATHLETES
For athletes, muscle recovery and physios, deep tissue massage is an important tool to help the deeper muscles get the care and attention you need. If your muscles are suffering more from daily aches and pains, you would probably be better off going for a standard swedish massage.
I don’t like massages where I can’t feel anything
I hear you. That’s just about pressure. Any massage therapist can adjust the pressure of a massage. All you have to do is ask them. To be fair, all massage therapists should ask you during the massage if you are happy, but we don’t want to be constantly checking in and interrupting your relaxing quiet time. So if you want a slightly firmer pressure – feel free to tell us.
The pressure should feel “yummy”. Now what I mean by that is that you shouldn’t expect the muscles to HURT. A lot of people (men tend to do this more) believe that in order to be doing something good for your muscles the massage should hurt. It doesn’t have to.
The way I always like to explain it is it should feel yummy. Sore enough that you feel some relief from the pressure (say a 2 or 3 on a pain scale out of 10), but anything higher than a 5 and you might actually do more damage to the muscle than good.
WHAT MASSAGE SHOULD I BE GETTING?
A Swedish massage is a standard massage that uses touch to trigger your bioelectric and chemical systems to calm and relax your nervous system. As one of the first languages we learn (remember all that skin to skin promotion for babies?!) touch has been proven time and time again to be good for our physical, mental and emotional health. So next time you’re booking a massage ask for a Swedish and then simply ask your massage therapist during the treatment for a firmer pressure if you need it.
Honestly, a good massage therapist will naturally know where to apply more pressure based on what your muscles are telling them anyway.
Why Massage is Seriously Good for You
Massage is often considered a ‘luxury’ treatment and something you may have as a treat. While it is indeed a great thing to treat yourself too, there are so many other reasons to include massage therapy in your life and to consider it as a necessity, not a luxury. In fact, many people start off by ‘treating’ themselves to a session and swiftly become regulars.
- Increases our happy hormones,
- Eases muscle tension,
- Relaxes the mind
- Stimulates blood and lymph flow
- Boosts the immune system
– all of which add to our sense of overall well-being.
Regular massage is highly recommended and documented as a great thing to do as a ‘maintenance’ plan for our health and wellness. If you’re still not convinced, read on!
Massage for Relaxation
Let’s start with the favourite view of what massage is good for – relaxation. It IS great for relaxation, there’s no doubt about that. It feels good, that’s for sure, but more than that, massage increases a release of the happy hormones, serotonin and dopamine. The firm, soothing strokes of massage ease muscles and encourage the body to let go and ease into a state of deep relaxation.
Breath slows down which automatically starts to have an effect on slowing down the mind too. Most people feel happier and more relaxed after receiving massage.
Stress and Anxiety
Sadly, stress and anxiety are very common today and massage is of great benefit for anyone suffering with the symptoms of either. Usually, clients who book massage to ‘relax’ are feeling stressed or anxious.
Regular massage is of real help in reducing stress and anxiety because of the effects described as above. Massage also stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system which is in charge of our bodily functions, calming down the digestive system and allowing a feeling of relaxation to ease tension in the stomach.
Massage for Sleep Issues
For all the reasons already mentioned, a good night’s sleep is the usual experience after receiving a massage. The body and mind are relaxed, we feel generally happier and more positive and as a result, we sleep well.Aromatherapy massage increases the effects by absorbing the healing properties of essential oils into the blood stream.
Always be sure to use a qualified aromatherapist though if you want to try this. Regular massage for anyone experiencing sleep issues is a worthy investment.
Pain Management Massages
This is a biggie! Whether you just slept wrong or suffer from the debilitating effects of fibromyalgia, or anything in between, massage is your go-to. The body loves to receive the healing strokes of massage because it eases tension and pain and is particularly soothing.
Arthritis can be greatly relieved with regular massage.
Migraine sufferers also benefit enormously with a reduction in symptoms through regular massage.
SPORTS MASSAGES BEFORE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Many athletes opt of massage before physical activity – and after too. Massage warms up the muscles, gets the oxygen and blood flowing to them so is a great way to prep before you start.
Massage after physical exertion helps the muscles to relax and can prevent spasm and cramps.In conclusion..These are just a few of the enormous benefits of massage and why it is definitely worth considering making it part of your self-care routine.
