My focus here at The Holistic System is on Remedial Sports Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Therapeutic Swedish Massage and Trigger Point Massage for chronic pain and injury prevention from sports or postural work related issues.

You can request a specific massage method ie: Remedial Sports massage, Deep Tissue Massage or you can simply describe any issues you are experiencing, such as neck & shoulder pain, lower back pain or ITB syndrome, and allow the therapist to create an optimum treatment plan that will address your needs.

Over last 9 years I have provided my services to an array of clients in based in Leeds, from professional footballer players from Leeds United, Barnsley, Sheffield United, to professional performance artists and dancers from Northern Contemporary School of Dance and Leeds Grand Theatre, to triple AAA finance houses.

Remedial Sports massage and Deep Tissue massage is suitable for anyone involved in physical activity. During training, bodies are under constant strain, involving muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints which may potentially lead to injury and hinder performance. Before any major sporting event, you will be under physical, mental and emotional stress. Pushing your body to its maximum potential leads to muscle tension, fatigue and build up of lactate in blood.

Both Remedial Sports massage and Deep Tissue massage is anatomy-based and employs various massage techniques to release trigger points (knots), relieve delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS), reduce muscle tightness, enhance recovery, and prevent injuries. These treatments are both, by nature, very intense, working very deep in to the muscle fibers.

Further more the massages will assist circulation and tissue drainage, stretch muscle and fascia and soothe painful or sore areas. It is also used for reducing local swelling and loosening adhesions between tissues. In intense physical activity our body is subjected to insufficient oxygen supply to meet energetic demand that leads to over production of lactate acid in blood. Both massage treatments help to facilitate clearance of lactate from tissue by increasing lymphatic movement. Therefore both Remedial Sports massage and Deep Tissue massage often become an integral part of recovery, injury prevention and injury management strategy; why wait until an injury occurs?

The key to your pain relief is understanding the cause of your symptoms through holistic assessment, treating related contracted muscle and fascia and increasing your awareness of what you can do to contribute to your own health and well-being. I have an in depth understanding of anatomy and physiology of human body in order to identify the type of technique to use for its utmost effect.

For those looking for more of a relaxing treatment while still working through some underling issues Therapeutic Swedish Massages, Indian Head Massage and Onsite Chair Massage are great options. They are a lighter treatment but still effective in increasing circulation and relieve tension from daily stresses in our busy modern lives.

In your treatment we focus on the causes of musculoskeletal problems. One of the basic principles of massage therapy is the understanding that everything in our bodies is closely connected and related.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage45 mins£45

Indian head massage is based on the ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years (see Ayurvedic Medicine). It provides Indian families with relaxation and healing on a daily basis, as well as playing a part in rituals such as weddings and births, not to mention everyday events like a trip to the barber. How does it work? The aim of Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders. What does it involve? The client, fully clothed, sits in a massage chair for the treatment. The therapist uses a range of different movements including application of deep kneading and compression movements over the neck, shoulder and scalp areas. In addition, the therapist will also gently stimulate and stroke pressure points on the face. The session will usually last from twenty to forty-five minutes, and most therapists like their clients to sit quietly for ten or twenty minutes once the massage has been completed. What is it good for? Indian head massage is especially good for relieving stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis. Clients report that the experience is deeply calming and relaxing, leaving them feeling energised and revitalised and better able to concentrate. What are the benefits? Indian head massage helps increase joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders, improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow, frees knots of muscular tension, relaxes connective tissue, and aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products. It is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension. What are the side effects and when should it be avoided? Following a treatment some clients experience tiredness, dizziness, an increased desire to urinate (as the body eliminates toxins and waste materials) or aching muscles. All of these side effects usually last for no more than a few hours, after which clients generally experience increased energy and alertness. Indian head massage should be avoided if you have had recent surgery, or a head or neck injury; a history of thrombosis or embolism; spondylitis or spondylosis. If you have high or low blood pressure, diabetes, Indian head massage is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension epilepsy, any kind of heart condition, cancer or osteoporosis, talk to your doctor before arranging a treatment.
