Massage

A blend of techniques from a number of different massage disciplines are used.  Esther effectively uses her highly skilled and trained hands (arms and elbows!), with correct body mechanics and core energy, to give you a more profound massage at a deeper level.  This is not a ‘one size fits all’ treatment.  As you can imagine, just as with all of Mimi’s treatments, each massage is tweaked for the individual and their needs at the time.  An intelligent massage.

For example, the ‘deeper’ techniques are used where and when needed, and more nurturing stokes are given to give the body chance to relax and recover.

Esther works slowly.  This is not a rushed, “no pain, no gain” massage that is often given when deep work is requested. The body, muscles and tissues are given time to stabilise and heal themselves.  Slow, deliberate movements are where the relaxation happens, and let’s face it, this is ultimately what you are after. Mindful manoeuvres and listening to the physical messages from your body, means you have a much more enjoyable and effective massage. Esther’s patience to work slowly, connect with the tissue, and wait for the tissue to ‘melt’ is, in her opinion the key to good deep tissue work.

The treatment might also consist of a series of movements similar to that in a yoga class.  Esther puts you in the position and then helps you get the most of that movement/stretch. In a nutshell it’s like going to a yoga stretch session, but someone else doing it for you! Amazing!

As well as the stretching, acupressure is applied over the invisible energy lines, thought to have an influence on the body and its functioning. In yoga they are known as ‘windows’, enabling an exchange of cosmic energy though the body to maintain balance with the energy of the universe. A disturbed balance is thought to lead to sickness, and so massage over these energy lines can help to restore balance and therefore prevent sickness.

This is a dynamic form of massage, so you can expect to have many benefits for your mind, body and soul, as energy is moved with the acupressure and stretching movements to maintain good health (and pain relief).

Gentle rhymical strokes can also be used to help the lymphatic flow.  Therefore aiding detoxification, improving a sluggish system, and, of course, relaxation. You are then left with an enhanced sense of well being. 

If you’ve never fancied a massage because you are shy or self conscious, no problem, you can stay clothed!
