Reminder January massage offer

Let me give you news of your New Year massage offer.

Just Massage is offering you a 20% reduction on our Head to Feet massage.

It’s a heavenly combination of our Rejuvenating Facial Massage and Revitalising Foot Massage

We begin with the feet, working on the reflex zones. The main objective is to create space by relaxing the foot so that the energy of the Earth (yin) can penetrate the foot and nourish the legs and trunk.

Then we move on to the face, neck and scalp.

This treatment reduces muscle tension in the face and improves blood flow to encourage a fresher and healthier look, improving muscle tone and skin elasticity. And it’s natural. The neck and shoulders are massaged to reduce  tension in these areas. The scalp massage is particularly relaxing.

June Massage Offer

I’m suffering with swollen ankles and restless legs with the sudden increase in temperatures here in Bordeaux (over 30°C  from 18-19°C), so whilst I’m waiting to do a massage exchange with a good friend (and great masseuse), I thought, well, maybe there are other ladies out there with the same problem as me.

Enjoy the benefits of a leg massage

So this month’s massage offer aims to get the circulation going in your legs so that you’ll feel that you’re Walking on Air (that’s the name of the massage).

This stimulating massage works on the feet, legs and stomach (optional), promotes the circulation of blood and energy in the legs and aids digestive problems.

Walking on Air begins with a thorough foot massage which aims to create space by stretching out the foot, relaxing it so that the energy of the Earth (yin) can penetrate the foot and nourish the whole leg right up to the trunk.

A foot and leg massage relaxes the mind and body

For those with “heavy” legs, the leg massage begins by “opening” the pressure points in the legs so that energy can circulate along the meridians. This is followed by a complete massage of the legs using various techniques specific to Traditional Chinese massage.

Throughout the month of June, Just Massage is offering a 20% discount on a 60 minute Walking on Air massage

40€ instead of 50€ for a 60 minute massage

Offer valid up to and including 30 June 2017.

Offer does not include gift vouchers.

Just call 06.47.14.06.03 for an appointment.

Traditional Chinese massage explained

Traditional Chinese massage, also known as TuiNa, is actually a very complicated and complete form of massage which is centuries old. To try and describe it succinctly is somewhat doing it an injustice but here goes.

TuiNa is part of traditional Chinese medicine (just as massage is an integral part of India’s Ayurvedic medecine) and one of the oldest treatments alongside acupuncture and phytotherapy.

The aim of TuiNa is to promote the circulation of qi – vital energy – in the body by unblocking the meridians (energy channels), balancing left and right sides of the body, top and bottom, and back and front.

Just take a quick look at this chart of the body’s meridians and you’ll understand the complexity of it all.

Alongside this is the notion of the elements which rule us and balance our yin and yang (two complementary principles of Chinese philosphy, one dark, one bright).

Traditional Chinese massage incorporates all these notions and treats all parts of the body from the head to the feet. It doesn’t just use massage, though – there may also be pressure to specific points to remove blockages, as well as some passive manipulation.

What to expect

A minimum amount of massage oil is used, just enough for comfort and treatment starts with a hands-on pause to allow the therapist to make first contact. The massage begins with long, slow strokes (effleurage) to warm up muscle tissue prior to working on releasing any knots or areas of tension. Different techniques exist in Chinese massage, notably the « gunfa » which uses the pressure of the knuckles in a rhythmic rolling movement to alleviate tension.

There is also a kneading technique called roufa which uses the base of the hand in a static rotative movement as well as mofa, a circular sliding pressure. Vibrations (zhenfa) are often used, particularly to relieve tension areas that have been worked on.The forearms and even elbows can be used as well as the hands. Different acupuncture points can be stimulated to alleviate varying problems according to Chinese medicine.

Generally speaking TuiNa tries to find your aches and pains and act upon them.

TuiNa is a very complete form of massage, working from the tips of the toes to the top of the head. As such you can benefit from it on just part of your body e.g. feet or head and still come away feeling invigorated.

Just Massage offers Traditional Chinese massage as a full body massage (60 or 90 minutes) or Part Body massages.
