Back massage offer

Are you a knotty girl?

Do you have tension in your back?

Then our October offer is tailor-made for you!

 

Our backs are one of the tensest areas in the body – all that sitting in front of computers, holding phones between ear and shoulder, carrying heavy bags around, wearing high heels…the list is endless when it comes to the strain we put our backs under on a daily basis.

No wonder then that a back massage is sheer heaven for most of us, as all those muscular tensions are eased away by a professional massage therapist.

Here at Just Massage the most requested massage is by far for your poor backs –  there are a lot of knotty people out there!

So set aside an hour this month to have your muscles soothed in our expert hands, and at a discount too!

40€ instead of 50€ for a one-hour back massage.

50€ instead of 65€ for a 90-minute massage (includes arms and head)

This thorough massage works on the back, neck and scalp and relieves accumulated tension in these areas. It uses techniques from Traditional Chinese massage, or TuiNa.

Valid up to and including 31 October 2018.

Offer does not apply to gift vouchers.

Contra-indications to massage 2

In a previous massage post we looked at some common local contra-indications to massage, such as cuts and bruises.

Here’s a reminder of what a contra-indication is.

What is a contra-indication?

It is a condition where the therapist must exercise caution or possibly avoid working on an area of the body.

In more extreme cases, you may need to avoid treatment altogether (but at the same time, in such extreme cases a person would rarely be wanting a massage).

Today we’ll be looking at conditions that are totally contra-indicated, conditions that may be contra-indicated but require medical advice, and additional cautions such as medication and allergies.

Total or local?

Total or local?

Conditions that are totally contra-indicated

Fever

A high temperature is a sign the body is fighting an infection of some kind. Massaging could place undue strain on the body so you must wait until the temperature has subsided.

Skin or scalp infections

Any contagious skin disease (ringworm, scabies, herpes simplex or

Colds and flu are contra-indicated too

Colds and flu are contra-indicated too

cold sores, impetigo etc) because of the risk of cross-infection.

Acute infectious diseases

For example, measles, chicken pox, mumps, tuberculosis, but even colds and flu because of the risk of spreading the disease.

 

 

 

Alcohol consumption/Drug user

Avoid massaging someone who has consumed alcohol or has taken drugs as the increase of blood flow could make them dizzy and nauseous.

Recent operations

GP referral necessary

You should get the go-ahead from the client’s doctor for certain major medical conditions. These include:

Cardio-vascular conditions (angina, ateriosclerosis, atherosclerosis, thrombosis, hypertension). As massage increases blood circulation it will, initially at least, exert pressure on the vessels of the cardio-vascular system.

Varicose veins and phlebitis.

Cancer. The current medical opinion about cancer is that the tumour is not likely to be spread by mechanical means such as massage. However there are many other considerations to take into account such as the patient’s general condition, blood counts, weakness, chemotherapy/radiotherapy treatment, drugs etc. which need a doctor’s input.

Dysfuncitons of the nervous sytem such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy.  GPs approval needs to be sought although massage may help reduce spasms and involuntary movements, rigidity and stiffness.

Neuritis. This is characterized by tingling or numbness. Refer to GP.

Osteoporosis. Bones can break easily with this conditin so seek medical advice before giving treatment.

Diabetes. Some clients with diabetes may be prone to arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure and oedema, and possible loss in sensory nerve function. Medical advice is required.

Epilepsy. Refer to the GP regarding the type and nature of epilepsy. The risk is that deep relaxation or overstimulation may provoke a convulsion.

Additional cautions

Allergies. Care should be taken to ensure the client is not allergic to any oils used (be careful with nut-based oils if using, for example)

Medication. Certain medications may inhibit or distort the client’s response to give feedback about pressure, discomfort and pain (for example if taking strong painkillers).

Pregnancy.

Pregnancy isn’t a contra-indication but special care should be taken to ensure a pregnant client is comfortable during treatment.

Perfect pampering with a home massage

Reminder August massage offer

I suffered a lot with swollen ankles and restless legs on my recent holiday in Venice, due to the extreme heat (although I was walking a lot!) and now I’m back in Bordeaux I’m still suffering with temperatures here over 30°C.

Maybe you have the same problem as me.

Enjoy the benefits of a leg massage

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 August, 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 31 August 2018.

Offer does not include gift vouchers.

Just call 06.47.14.06.03 for an appointment.

June massage offer

Discover the benefits of a Swedish massage this month with our June offer.

Swedish massage was developed, not surprisingly, by a Swede, Per Henrik Ling.

It stimulates the body’s circulation and so helps cleanse and nourish soft tissues by bringing more oxygen and nutrients to cells. It relaxes tense muscles and improves muscle tone. It stimulates the body’s system to greater efficiency.

Great for relaxation, improving sleep patterns and the relief of muscular tension.

Treatment begins with effleurage, followed by kneading, friction, vibrations and percussion techniques.

So set aside an hour this month to have your muscles soothed in our expert hands, and at a discount too!

40€ instead of 50€ for a one-hour Swedish massage.

Valid up to and including 30th June 2018.

Offer does not apply to gift vouchers.

Just call 06.47.14.06.03 for an appointment.

Reminder May massage offer

Do you work in front of a computer all day? Are your shoulders tense, your neck stiff, your eyes tired?

De-stress and chase away those tensions in your upper body with an Indian Head massage.

Traditional Indian Head Massage is based on the ancient system of medicine known as Ayurveda (the science of life and longevity in Sanskrit) and has been practised for thousands of years. The Ayurvedic approach to health is holistic, balancing the body, mind and spirit and promoting long life.

Indian Head Massage, as its name suggests, was originally designed for use on the head, but has been Westernized to include the shoulders, upper arms and neck. As such it has become popular as a stress management technique.

Ease stress with an Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage can:

  • Relieve muscular tension and fatigue
  • Improve circulation
  • Help relieve emotional stress and elevate the mood
  • Help improve the condition of the skin and hair
  • Help relieve mental fatigue, promote clearer thinking, improve concentration and increase productivity

Massaging the scalp

Indian Head massage is traditionally given in a seated position. We use a special table head rest to allow you to relax more during the treatment. There is no need to undress but the massage can be more enjoyable if your upper back is uncovered so we can use oils. However, if you prefer to lie down on a massage table, it’s not a problem.

Throughout the month of May we are offering a 10€ discount :

25€ instead of 35€ for a 40 minute Indian Head massage.

Valid up to and including May 31st 2018.

Offer does not include gift vouchers.
