1. Swedish Relaxation Massage

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies

Swedish Massage, also known as Holistic Massage, is the cornerstone ofl Western forms of massage. This style of massage is very relaxing and perfect for clients wanting a slow and gentle massage to rest and enjoy so ‘me’ time in a calm tranquil healing space. The strokes used in Swedish Relaxation Massage are very light and performed in a slow rhythmic manner that helps calm the mind and allow you to become more attuned with your body in a soft and gentle way. This massage uses neutral warm oil, usually a blend of Grapeseed, Sunflower and Vitamin E.

Perfect for anyone in need of a de-stress who prefers quite a light pressure massage.

Perfect for...

  • Deep relaxation and rest for body and mind
  • Reducing and dispersing inflammation across the body
  • Increases well-being, helps you release stress... and just feel better

2. Deep Tissue Relaxation Massage

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies

This is a deeper form of relaxation and restorative massage that uses a 'massage wax' instead of oil which allows a slower glide across the muscles and bodies connective tissues without just sliding over the body as happens in a Swedish Massage (above). Again this massage is all about relaxation and just allowing tension to unfold and release from the body through the application of nice long slow hand and forearms strokes. A very popular choice for clients who use massage as part of an on-going maintenance well-being program.

Perfect for...

  • Deeper Muscle Relaxation and restorative rest for body and mind
  • Reducing and dispersing inflammation across the body
  • Helps relax and open the joints and connective tissues for greater ease of movement
  • Increases well-being, helps you release stress... and just feel better

3. Head Massage

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies

This is a Tui-Na (Chinese Massage) acupoint massage combined with Indian Head Massage. All the relevant acupuncture points and meridians running through the neck/head/face are stimulated to clear the bodies meridian channels and improve Qi flow leaving the recipient with a profound sense of clarity and calm. The first part of this massage is performed dry and the second part uses hot oil and hot towels on the head to further relax the upper body.

Perfect for...

  • Neck shoulder tension
  • Mild tension headaches
  • Feeling generally run down and stressed out

4. Traditional Ear Candling

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies

Using bees wax ear candles (with safety filter) to draw out blockages from the ear canal. An effective thermo-therapy treatment for easing congestion in the ear. The treatment includes a detailed Vodder Manual Lymphatic Drainage treatment of the neck, face and head after the candling (I'm a fully qualified Vodder MLD therapist) to help clear congestion in the neck and head / ears. Treatments are usually 45 minutes.

5. Reiki

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies

A deeply relaxing and calming form of energy healing which has roots reaching far back into into India and then Japan and from there to the West. A Reiki treatment helps gently open and clear blocked energy pathways running through the body promoting deep rest and rejuvenation of body and mind. Uses simple hand positions over and on the body to allow the REIKi energy to flow through the therapist into and through the recipient. I’ve practised Reiki since 1999 qualifying to Master-Teacher in 2006 and having also worked as a professional energy healer for several years during the 19990’s and also having undergone over 2 decades of shamanic practice. (The word Shamanic loosely translates as one who ‘touches the soul’)

Perfect for...

  • Stress and tension
  • Insomnia
  • Feeling run down and washed out
  • Feeling fatigued
