Swedish Massage
...using NHR ORGANIC OILS 'The Purest Range of Certified Organic Essential Oils in The World'

...with an advanced massage therapist

1. Swedish massage is a wonderful way to help with general tension, muscle aches, stress, sleep problems etc.

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies

The massage techniques applied in an Aromatherapy treatment come from Swedish Massage which is the corner stone of all Western forms of massage. Swedish Massage is often referred to as Holistic Massage (Relaxation Massage) as it uses a whole body/mind approach to facilitate the release of stress and tension in the support of natural healing. Aromatherapy has the added benefit of the healing effect of essential oils which are blended with the base/carrier oil that is used for the massage treatment.

4. What happens during a session?

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies

At the first session a written consultation is undertaken which takes about 30 to 40 minutes. I will ask you a series of questions around lifestyle, diet and your health/medical history to allow me to build up a picture that enables me to tailor your treatment more specifically in order to get the best results for you. You will be asked to remove appropriate clothing in private and make yourself comfortable on the massage couch with large warm towels to cover you ready for your treatment. During the massage, only the part of your body being massaged will be exposed in order to protect your modesty.

5. How many treatments will I need and how long are they?

Relaxation therapies can be enjoyed as individual one off treatments periodically or as part of course of treatment over a number of weeks to help with issues such as stress and anxiety ....a lot of clients choose a different relaxation or combinations of the different treatments each time they come in.

Treatments length varies...please see the price list below for more information.

6. Therapy Room

I work from home and have created a bright, uplifting therapy studio. The massage couch I use is a fully electric - height / back rest / knee lift - adjustable thickly padded, extra wide, heated spa couch. Changing facilities are provided in the therapy room which is closed off by screened doors whilst you prepare for your treatment.
