November massage offer

Running a bit late this month as I was enjoying the sea air in Brittany last week!

Feeling refreshed but did lots of walking so thought a foot massage would be a good thing for you to try out this November.

Lots of people will instantly go “Oh No, you’re not touching my feet”, but you don’t know what you’re missing out on!!

Let us help you change your mind by offering a special discount on a lovely massage, dedicated exclusively to your tired tootsies.

A foot massage relaxes the mind and body

Our revitalising foot massage uses traditional Chinese massage which believes the meridian network connects all tissues, organs and cells in our body.

The aim of our foot massage 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.

We are on our feet a lot – even in a sitting position they are under pressure.

We cramp our feet into shoes and socks which sometimes rub and give blisters, hard skin and calluses.

It’s high time you pampered them!

A foot massage stimulates the reflex zones in the foot and as such can have a positive effect on the whole body. So give your feet a treat, you’ll feel the benefits straight away.

For scientific evidence of the benefits, read this article about how an aromatherapy foot massage can ease stress.

Throughout the month of November we are offering a 20% discount :

28€ instead of 35€ for a 40 minute Revitalising foot massage.

Valid up to and including November 30th 2018.

Offer does not include gift vouchers.

Just call 06.47.14.06.03 for an appointment

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.
