Introduction to Swedish and Deep (sports) massage by Tom
The Lacroix and Lidell method uses many elements and strokes of both soft and deep tissue sports massage to give total satisfaction with a sense of completeness to the discerning client.
It can be used all over the body, ie glutes, head, feet, belly; at the prior signed for request of the client and is offered to all accessible areas of the clients physique.
In addition to in-depth study of the above two publications and many clients over the past 8 years, I have trained with the 'Therapy Training School' and completed their diploma in Swedish Massage which included on-line study, manuals, and practical training with assessments in Glasgow.
My training was certified by 'The Guild of Holistic Therapists' and the 'International Institute for Complementary Therapists' and I am insured with 'Salon Gold'.
If this appeals to you, and you'd like to try my relaxing, enjoyable and highly effective massage then please contact me and arrange a time convenient to yourself.
Booking essential within busy periods! (at the moment!)
If you have any of your own music which you'd like to bring along then please do so, otherwise, my modern sedative or other suitable tracks can be selected.
Luxurious white towels and plump pillows offer comfort and warmth, allowing your body and mind to relax and drift away whilst your position is firmly supported on a 'massage imperial' black sturdy couch.
Refreshments are included or you can bring along your own.
The massage takes place at my 'studio room' at 41 Airport Road or within your home or Hotel Room.
After a brief initial consultation (with no time lost from your massage!) I'll explain to you what your massage could entail and then you simply sign for the areas you'd like included in your massage and note any particular requests, ie - lots of time on the feet or sore lower back etc...
Other 'add-on' options for your massage:
Moisturising C-Film, Body or Leg Wrap - You can also include an optional 'Apricot Kernel Moisturising Leg Wrap'! (for skin nourishment and not weight loss) If applied to your legs at the start of your 3 hour 'Full Body Massage' then this will be in position for at least one hour, so you'll get the maximum benefit from the oil's properties. High in proteins, Vitamin's A, B and E and one of the most potent natural antioxidants. Neutralising free radicals and protects and nourishes the skin. Your legs will be the smoothest they've ever felt! Firmly applied from the tip of your toes to your upper thigh. Including a 'bottom lift' if asked for. The compression from the cling film can also stimulate Lymph Drainage and aid in dispersing water / fluid retention.
(the direction of rotation and method used is a 'key factor' in a successful firm uplifting bottom lift / wrap without causing discomfort, you will feel the lift!!) ^^Arms and anywhere else can be included at your request!
^^If this is a preferred option then you could alternatively substitute the first hour from the 3 Hour to include an hour of a Full/Upper Body Wrap for total coverage, this approach would leave your legs wrapped for approx' 1 hour 40 whilst the remainder of your body is massaged - total massage time would be in excess of 2 Hours with longer time spent initially on your face, neck and hands. (I allow extra time for the initial process of wrapping and oil application, so NO time is lost from you Massage!)
Aromatherapy Essential Oil Therapy - By combining these concentrated pure organic essences the body's natural healing process can be triggered. If requested, your massage can also be a Lymphatic Massage with an emphasis on stimulating the flow of lymph fluid. This can be useful if you suffer from water retention.
Choose from these wonderful essential oils with their different effective potency's which will be combined with your chosen base oil, usually Sweet Almond or Grapeseed:
Jasmine - mood enhancer, lifting anxiety and depression, frigidity & impotence, menstrual cramps, aphrodisiac.
Sandalwood - sedative, depression, tension, skin complaints, nausea, aphrodisiac.
Rosemary - memory, headaches.
