Tanya Knight Massage TherapyUnderstanding massage

Massage is a treatment of touch and response which can enhance health and well-being by promoting the body’s own healing abilities. Muscle and skin tone is improved and tight joints eased by the moulding and manipulation of soft tissue, encouraging increased range of movement and body alignment.

Massage can also help clear congested tissue, improve circulation and balance the body’s systems. It’s a safe and effective treatment of soft tissue injuries and muscular-skeletal pain or for pure relaxation from stressful situations.

Specific techniques are individually tailored and can be applied to almost anyone, from infants to adults of all ages.

An initial appointment will include a short consultation when specific conditions can be discussed.

Reflexology is the application of pressure on the feet to effect corresponding parts of the body

Imbalances in the feet are worked to release blockages and promote healing by improving the flow of energy through the body.

Reflexology works on the principle that there are reflex points in the feet which correspond to all the organs, glands and parts of the body. Stimulating these refex points properly can help many health problems in a natural way. A type of preventative maintenance.

Reflexology has been around for centuries, in fact it was practised as early as 2330 BC by the Egyptian culture.

It is used primarily for relaxing tension. Doctors agree that over 75% of our health problems can be linked to nervous stress and tension.

Reflexology improves nerve and blood supply and helps nature restore balance and harmony
