Biodynamic Massage Therapy
Biodynamic massage is a psychotherapeutic form of massage concerned with the integration of all aspects of an individual - physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual within the context of an individual's life and relationships at home, at work and at leisure. It is derived from methods used in Norwegian physiotherapy. The aim of a biodynamic massage therapist is to understand with the client the meaning and message of an illness, and in this process symptom relief can come about through creating a new balance within oneself and life generally.
Everyday activities take their toll, often without you noticing the subtle changes which are taking place, and these days you may find yourself increasingly "on the go" because of email, mobile phones and a 24/7 lifestyle generally.
You may not have time to relax, reflect on and integrate all your experiences, and this can lead to an uncomfortable and exhausting build-up of stress and tension in your body and mind, leaving you feeling exhausted, unwell or in pain.
Biodynamic Massage encourages you to return to your natural state of vitality and wellbeing by releasing muscle tension and promoting deeper breathing, which can lead to improved digestion and circulation, reduction in fluid retention and toxicity, increased joint mobility, a sense of calm and relaxation etc. - as well as giving you some much-needed time and space away from "busy-ness".
Biodynamic massage has a large repertoire of techniques to suit individual needs. Each client receives an individually matched massage session, but no two sessions will be exactly the same for an individual.
Clients experience relief from such problems as aches and pains, anxiety, constipation, insomnia, reduced mobility, fluid retention, lack of energy, etc.
During a session our therapist may listen to the sounds of your gut activity (peristalsis) via a stethoscope placed on your abdomen, as this can be a good indicator of how you are responding to the massage.
No oils are used in Biodynamic Massage, so you can have a treatment without undressing if you prefer.
You will probably notice a difference after just one session, but we recommend a series of treatments for maximum and lasting benefit...
...because life is worth living well
