Holistic Healing Massage

Holistic Healing Massage
A holistic healing massage is a unique massage therapy (exclusive to VaVa Yoga) combining all the massage techniques using aromatherapy essential oils.

This is an intuitive massage that incorporates a combination of (where needed) reiki, aromatherapy massage, hot stones, heat therapy, trigger point therapy, deep tissue & lymphatic drainage massage techniques.

The therapist uses intuitive healing by scanning the body using the hands and is guided to the areas that need attention.

This massage is particularly good for emotional healing.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage (DTM)
Therapeutic Treatment
Deep tissue massage is a therapeutic massage that targets and realigns the deeper layers of muscles, tendons and fascia (dense tight connective tissue).

The techniques used are deep compression of the muscle, long firm slow strokes and heat.
This therapy is very helpful for chronic aches and pains, muscle tension, fibrotic build up in the muscles (knots), stiff neck, shoulders & upper back, lower back pain, tight & stiff legs and is particularly effective for sciatica.

The ultimate goal of deep tissue massage is to release tight fascia, to allow muscles to move with ease thus providing pain relief and is also an excellent pain management tool.

Facial Trigger Point Massage

Facial Trigger Point Massage
Facial acupressure/trigger point massage is a soothing massage working on the face neck and shoulders, designed to release the myofascial trigger points particularly in the face.

A source of tension and pain can often be attributed to the trigger points in the face, neck and shoulders.

Trigger points are hypersensitive spots in the skeletal muscle and can be felt as palpable nodules (knots) and tight bands (ropes) of muscle fibres which can be a common cause of pain.

Trigger point therapy releases the tension in these sensitive areas and can be extremely calming.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy Massage
Aromatherapy massage is a massage therapy incorporating essential oils into the massage.

The oils are used are specifically chosen for their beneficial properties and individually suited to each clients ailment.

Clients benefit from touch therapy, the healing properties of the oils being absorbed into the skin and the aroma of the oils being inhaled.

No two aromatherapy massages are the same.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a form of alternative massage therapy using flat, smooth, heated basalt stones that are positioned along key acupressure / trigger points along the spine, legs, palms, hands and the feet.

A hot stone massage typically begins with a Swedish massage to prepare the muscles for the hot stones.
The stones used maintain heat due to their rich iron content and once placed on the body, begin to warm and relax the muscles, thus allowing deeper pressure to be applied.

This therapy encourages the body to heal and detoxify through the actions of increased lymphatic flow creating a cascade of toxic waste products drainage.

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage
Swedish massage is therapeutic massage treating the whole body, working on the soft tissues and muscles which calms and balances the central nervous system.
This massage helps to balance the body and promotes healing.

Swedish massage is virtually the opposite to deep tissue massage. Swedish massage is best known for soothing muscles, improving circulation, relaxation and improving general well being.

Reflexology

Reflexology
Reflexology involves applying pressure to the feet, with each part of the body corresponding to a reflex point on the foot.

Reflexology is an alternative treatment for a variety of medical conditions and can also be applied to the hands.

The idea behind reflexology is that certain parts of the foot correspond to certain organs and systems of the body and by applying pressure to these specific areas, it is believed to bring healing and relaxation to the corresponding area of the body.

This can help alleviate stress & anxiety, aid in sleeping and may even reduce pain.
Some hospitals in the United Kingdom recognise and include reflexology as an excellent alternative to stress alleviation and pain management.

Far Infra Red Heat Treatment

Far Infra Red Heat Treatment
Far Infrared heat therapy (FIR) has multiple benefits and roles within the body.

FIR promotes detoxification which is essential for weight loss, pain management, reduction of muscle tension, skin purification, lowering of blood pressure, stress relief and immune support, all leading to good health, wellness and feeling revitalised.

FIR heats the body from the inside out thus eliminating chemicals and other toxins from the body. It helps ease soreness, burns calories and allows the mind and body to fully relax while increasing and releasing endorphins, the "feel good" hormones.

FIR is a painless, non invasive light therapy that is experienced by us as heat, the kind of heat we enjoy while sitting in the sun (the invisible part of the suns rays) but without the suns skin damaging UV radiation.

Crystal Healing

Crystal Healing
Crystal healing is a holistic, non-invasive, vibrational energy-based system of healing.

The technique uses precisely placed crystals either on and/or around the physical body. Crystals may also be laid in precise geometric patterns (grids) within the environment.
Crystals absorb, focus, direct, detoxify, shift and diffuse energy as they interact with the electromagnetic forces and subtle vibrations within the subtle human or environmental energy field.

In the context of crystal healing, illness is dis-ease, the final manifestation of spiritual, environmental, physiological, psychological, emotional, mental, karmic, or ancestral imbalance or distress.

Healing means bringing mind, body, spirit and environment back into harmony, restoring the body’s natural rhythm and equilibrium.
The main influence for healing is the chakra philosophy of disease caused by energy imbalances.

Reiki

Reiki
Reiki is a Japanese technique of energy work that promotes healing through the reduction of stress and promoting relaxation.

It is a "laying on of hands" technique that activates "life force energy" (LFE) within the body, it is this LFE flowing through us that causes us to be alive.

If our LFE is low then we may succumb to illness and / or stress, thus the idea is to improve our LFE thus improving our health and well-being.

A Reiki treatment attends to the whole person, including the mind, body, mind and spirit, resulting in a myriad of beneficial effects including feelings of well-being, security and peace and according to Eastern philosophies is very effective in helping a number of ailments and maladies.

Reiki works symbiotically with all other therapeutic and medical techniques by promoting recovery and has no side effects.

Individual Therapeutic Yoga

Individual Therapeutic Yoga
Yoga therapy is an individual approach to clients with specific body/mind ailments or needs.

It is the application of individually tailored yoga practice to reduce mental & body health conditions with the objective of promoting self care while promoting overall well being.
