What my clients say...

"As a male sports therapist myself, I found Lynni to have both a sensitive searching touch to find the exact location of any problem but also to have the depth of pressure to satisfactorily eliminate the tension, which I have personally found many female therapists do not possess."

Steve Mozlin, Sports Therapist

 

"Loved the baby yoga.  Lots of exercise for me and my baby!"

Lymphatic Drainage

massageLymphatic drainage was developed in the 1930's and is a delicate form of massage that stimulates the body's lympatic system, improving the metabolism, helping the body to eliminate waste and toxins and providing a boost to the immune system.

This treatment is especially useful for individuals who seem to suffer regularly from common illnesses like colds and flu.  It's also recommended for people who lead sedentary lifestyles, or those who want to reduce puffiness or swelling.  Lymphatic drainage massage boosts the immune system so as well as helping the body ward off illness, treatment can facilitate general feelings of health and vitality.

Lymphatic drainage shouldn't be used by people with acute inflammation, malignant tumours, thrombosis or major heart problems.  People with cancer, diabetes, thyroid or kidney problems, asthma or epilepsy should seek medical advice before treatment.  It's also advisable that women do not undergo lymphatic drainage while menstruating.

Indian Head Massage

This is a wonderful treatment for de-stressing the whole body. It helps to disperse toxins, improve circulation & oxygenate the brain. It also aids the lymphatic drainage, can aid restful sleep and induces a state of calm and tranquillity.

I use a range of different movements to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders. In addition, I will also gently stimulate pressure points on the face. The session will usually last forty minutes. Indian head massage is great for relieving stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis.  Many of my clients say that the experience is deeply calming and relaxing, leaving them feeling energised, revitalised and better able to concentrate.

Indian head massage should be avoided if you have had recent surgery, a neck or head injury or a history of thrombosis or embolism.  If in doubt please contact your doctor before arranging a treatment. 

Pregnancy Massage

After the first trimester massage during pregnancy can be hugely beneficial - reducing stress, anxiety, relieving aches and pains, and much more. Partners are strongly encouraged to come along and learn techniques that can be used at home for comforting relief and relaxation.

While pregnancy is a joyous occasion full of anticipation for a new arrival, it can also be accompanied by many aches and pains. Most doctors agree that prenatal massage can provide benefits for both the mother and the baby. Massage during pregnancy can not only provide relaxation, it can also provide other medical benefits including improved outcomes during childbirth for both the mother and the baby if massages are received on a regular basis during pregnancy.

Pain Relief

man s hand on pregnant woman s stomach uid 1180686Regular massage therapy during pregnancy can relieve many of the aches and pains that are associated with the pregnancy. These can include back pain, headaches, leg cramps, and abdominal pain. A common complaint among pregnant women is sciatic nerve pain. As the uterus continues to expand throughout the pregnancy, increased pressure is placed on the sciatic nerve. This pressure can cause pain that begins in the buttocks and can radiate down the leg. A trained therapist can work on this area to reduce the pain associated with the sciatic nerve. Prenatal massage can also help to increase andimprove circulation in the body. This increased circulation can aid in the reduction of leg cramps that many pregnant women experience primarily at night as well as haemorrhoids.

Relaxation

Massage therapy can also provide immediate relaxation for a stressed out and anxious mum-to-be. Even pregnant women who have a relatively easy pregnancy can benefit from the stress reduction and relaxing properties of a prenatal massage. In addition to providing relaxation during the pregnancy, more and more women are also using the services of a massage therapist during labour.  Because human touch naturally releases endorphins, or feel good hormones, into the system, this can be beneficial during the labor and delivery process.

Reduced Swelling

During pregnancy, the blood volume in the body increases dramatically to support both the mother and the fetus. In addition, the body tends to retain more fluids, particularly towards the end of the pregnancy. Women can experience swelling of the extremities, especially of the feet and lower legs. The benefit of increased circulation can help to reduce some of the swelling that is associated with pregnancy.

Baby Massage

Infant massage is something that every parent and care giver can learn. It provides benefits for both the baby and the parent and is a wonderful way to enhance the unique relationship you have with your child. Evidence shows that loving nurturing contact between care givers and infants has an significant impact on their physical, emotional and mental development.

Infant massage includes all the elements of attachment, including eye contact, smiling, soothing sounds, touch, smell and interaction. The quality of the closeness between parent and baby has been proven to have life long benefits.

Benefits of Infant Massage can include:

Improved sleep
Aiding digestion, colic and constipation
Helping to develop muscle tone and co-ordination
Strengthened immune system
Enhance the bond and attachment
Improve communication
Calm babies emotions and relieve stress
Regulate breathing and relieve nasal congestion
