This treatment triggers your body's own ability to naturally detoxify by focusing on reflex points on the feet and around the colon and nervous system points. This treatment is perfect if you are feeling heavy and sluggish and would like to feel lighter and more energised.
This powerful treatment uses deep and strong strokes to loosen and free up your spine, neck and hips. When your spine, neck and hips are free, supple and flexible then the nerve and blood supply to all your organs is greatly improved, allowing for increased functioning, improved health and greater energy.
This treatment will not only free up your back but also your whole energy! The aim of this treatment is that you will walk out of the session taller, looser and freer than when you walked in.
A wonderfully soothing yet powerfully flowing massage treatment that will leave you feeling deeply relaxed and peaceful . From beginning to end you can feel yourself enveloped in the healing power of the most powerful touch on the planet.
The ultimate in relaxation!
No Hands® Massage is an incredible treatment that offers way more than a physical massage! Whilst you may come for a session with a physical injury, aches or pains, you will receive support with this and much more!
No Hands® Massage affords you the space and time to let go of the stresses and strains of life you may be holding onto in your body, mind and emotionally. As your muscles and soft tissues submit to release the physical tension in your body, this opens up the possibility of allowing your mind to let go and give in to the moment, to switch off and be completely present. At the same time there is potential for you to able to release emotions that may be pent up and locked within.
All this holding on is hard work, can become physically painful and can cause our inner energy source to be stuck. The No Hands® Massage touch is the key to releasing our inner life force so that it can flow and we can feel liberated and energised and free, free to gain perspective and perhaps even consider different perspectives for ourselves and our lives.
Why not try a No Hands® Massage and take some time out to breathe, feel and release!
To you and I, a tramp through your local woods…. Easily enough done, yet easy to forget how wonderful it feels and more so easy perhaps to feel too busy to bother in the first place; so perhaps not that easy…! There is evidence to suggest now though that a “forest bathe” is a great form of therapy, for the mind, body and soul!
While the benefits of regular exercise, especially outside and in nature are known, a growing body of research is evidencing the benefits to mental wellbeing and health from exposure to forest and woodland environments in particular. Known as shinrin-yoki (http://www.shinrin-yoku.org/shinrin-yoku.html), this is a well researched type of therapy developed in Japan in the 1980's and forms the foundation of preventative healthcare and healing in Japanese medicine.
When I'm not massaging my lovely clients I get out in my local woods (https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/visiting-woods/wood/10316/elnup-wood/) and having just returned from a decent tramp, I can vouch for all those benefits! It’s simply an assault on all senses in the most positive way.
My Healing Hands was delighted to support Lancashire Mind recently with its De-Stresstival event at Ribblesdale High School!
Whilst the pupils boogied on down to a bit of rave over lunch and enjoyed a variety of wellbeing activities, the teachers were treated to rejuvenating and replenishing massage sessions in the quiet space of the school counsellor’s office!
A win-win day for all – using a range of creative techniques to de-stress pupils and teachers alike at what was a challenging time for all - exam time!
Stress can become a vicious circle with negative effects on the body, mind and spirit, if left unchecked.
My friend’s husband suffered from a stroke recently and he is still in hospital so I’ve been massaging him weekly for some time now. Whilst his care is okay from the NHS, he is getting physiotherapy only twice a week. The rest of the time he is bedbound and pretty static, being supported to move only to go to the bathroom and for limited physical therapy.
The key to recovery for stroke patients is movement and work towards regaining as much independence as possible , no matter how little or inconsequential it may seem. As recovery progresses, increased safe physical activity is key on the journey to ultimately living life as fully as possible again.
While every stroke is unique, there are a number of common effects of a stroke and massage therapy can support stroke patients in a number of ways to contribute towards their recovery, including potential improvement to overall function and muscle re-education, as well as decreased aches, pain and inflammation, increased range of motion and muscle strengthening, decreased spasticity and water retention and a better state of mind.
Stressed, always in a rush, always on the back burner? Head spinning with the ever increasing list of things to do?
It’s easy to get caught on the hamster wheel of life…I’ve just spent 5 days in bed.. unfortunately not with some hunky chap but a nasty bout of flu! Not only did I have to cancel a bunch of clients; I missed out on a great BBQ today and a hiking trip in the Lakes tomorrow. To add insult to injury, I got a letter through the post yesterday stating I’d exceeded the speed limit in my area last Friday and I now need to go on one of those speed awareness courses, or pay a lot of money and get points on my licence! The irony is, I was driving to my yoga class!!! And the greater irony I now realise is, my body recognised the signs of me going too fast. I was feeling the panic rising in myself last week, with a never ending list of tasks getting longer all the while. And yet, I chose to ignore the signs.
Fibromyalgia sucks the life out of sufferers…
Fibromyalgia is a difficult and chronic condition that can severely reduce quality of life for sufferers. Fibromyalgia causes pain throughout the whole body, varying from sharp and shooting to enduring deep boned aching, which can occur at any time. Painful areas can develop in the soft tissue around the joints known as tenderpoints.
Unfortunately Fibromyalgia is an enduring condition; the pain and symptoms need to be managed rather than cured. Whilst pain relief is available widespread through prescription medications, these can cause their own problems in addition to the condition itself.
Sufferers often seek alternative ways to manage this condition and increasingly are turning to more natural and healthier ways to do so. Therapeutic massage can provide an excellent means of pain management, and for good reason.
The complex range of symptoms manifesting in the body, as well as its negative impact on the mind and emotions can be addressed and improved upon uniquely through the one healing medium of massage therapy. Massage is natural so has none of the nasty side effects that medication can present and which can become problematic to manage in their own right.
Wow what feedback from a very happy client whom I treated last week! What an honour to be able to help people... on this occasion my client has Fibromyalgia.
I can not express enough how I feel right now. I had a full body massage and this wonderful lady really has got Healing hands. I suffer with Fibromyalgia and have pain everyday and after being on medication for many years I wanted an alternative option and I have found it. Jan was so welcoming understanding compassionate and I connected with her immediately. It was like she could see my pain and she took me to such a happy place. I have left relaxed, happy and... . Pain free.
I look forward to my next session and if anyone out there lives with pain I definately recommend Jans healing hands.
A huge thank you xxx xxx
This is why I do massage therapy and love it!
Fibromyalgia is a condition that can last a lifetime. Whilst there is unfortunately no cure for this painful condition, noted for its widespread physical pain and persistent fatigue, massage can provide an excellent means of pain management, and for good reason.
