As a 60 + male I didn’t think I would feel comfortable having a treatment. I am pleased to have been proved wrong, not only did I feel at ease in the treatment suite, I was very impressed by the deep massage.
From the moment I entered the room I felt relaxed. The therapist gave an overview and explained how I should get ready; I was made to feel very comfortable. The therapist asked a few questions which would allow her to tailor the treatment and pressure to suit each person; I explained the constant pain I suffer in my shoulder.
The massage oil had a calming scent of rosemary and eucalyptus and I immediately felt stress dissolve. The therapist worked on specific areas one at a time using a variety of sizes of bamboo. The bamboo was initially used to apply pressure and release tension. It was then tapped against the skin to increase blood flow. Thirdly, the bamboo was used to roll and knead my muscles to help alleviate my aches and pains; as a gym user I would liken the sensation to a more comfortable version of foam rolling! Finally the canes were used to stretch the muscle in a controlled way; the bamboo elongated the muscle and this felt wonderful.
Throughout the massage I was keen to understand the benefits of the different techniques and the therapist took the time to answer my questions.
The whole experience surpassed my expectations and I definitely felt freer. I am so pleased to have taken this opportunity to try a treatment, it has definitely changed my mindset.
