REMINDER: Mini massage course for couples

In case you missed it, here’s a reminder of our latest offer.

A great new offer this month just in time for Valentine’s Day:

Learn basic massage techniques with a professional massage therapist and reap the benefits both at home and at work.

According to new research from Northumbria University, couples who took part in a three-week basic course not only reduced stress and improved their well-being, but also felt more satisfied with their relationship.

If you live in and around Mérignac and Pessac, you can now contact me for courses with you and your significant other, all in the comfort of your own home. You can learn the basics in a just a few hours, and get a massage into the bargain!

Back massage

Effleurage, pressure strokes, hacking, friction, kneading; all these words will suddenly take on a new meaning.

As a couple, you’ll learn how to give your partner a relaxing back massage*, relieving knots in the neck and shoulders, reducing tension in the lower back, taking it in turns to massage each other.

And the big plus side is that you’ll be massaged half the time by your other half, it’s a win-win situation!

No need for you to move from the comfort of your own home, just a phone call to make and your massage lesson is booked. No running about trying to get the kids looked after, no time lost in traveling to and from your appointment, no traffic jams, no worrying about being late, no parking nightmares.

All necessary material brought to your doorstep on time, every time – massage table, oils, clean linen.

 

You should allow a maximum of two and a half hours for a 2-hour lesson (for setting up and changeovers) with 2 full hours of massage included (1 hour per person).

Special introductory offer 75€ instead of 90€ per 2-hour lesson.

Offer valid until February 28th 2018.

You can offer a massage lesson as a gift voucher (as with all our massages).

* You can also ask for a lesson on massaging the arms, neck and head; or the feet and legs.

Face massage tools – high tech vs manual?

I came across this article from Elle magazine online, vaunting the merits of some very high-tech face massage devices (some of which are exorbitantly priced! The one below comes in at £425).

Cult Beauty - £425 This may look a bit like a UFO, but it's the closest thing to a professional face lift without having to go under the needle or knife. The tiny device - which links up with your iPhone - uses nano-currents and vibrations to supercharge slack skin cells with energy, prompting them to tighten up. Much like laser treatments, it works alongside a 'conductor gel' which helps it glide across the skin, and you can use it everywhere, from your cheeks to your forehead and even your upper lip and under eyes. Ge-ni-us. 

Really, I thought? Not a tad gimmicky?

I admit I have a wooden face roller that resembles N° 8 in Elle‘s list, only it was a free gift, so far from the £39.99 price tag on Amazon. I used it enthusiastically for about a week or so, then went back to my usual manual massage routine when I apply my face cream morning or night.

So, does anyone have one of these massage tools? And can they really do better than your own fingers?

I’m not convinced…

And let’s face it (excuse the pun!), having a professional do the work for you is all part and parcel of the relaxation process – that’s what pampering is all about.

Here at a Just Massage we have a popular facial massage which incorporates the neck, shoulders and scalp (as tension in those areas affects tension in your face). You’ll come away with a fresher-looking complexion and some advice for continuing the massage at home (it’s the regularity that gets results, just like in sport!)

Why not give it a try – personally I think manual beats mechanical every time, if only for the sensual aspect of touch combined with oils.

Let me know what you think.

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.

 

May massage offer

With the prospect of warmer weather to come (the end of April was a little chilly!), I thought I’d get you thinking exotic, with a trip to Hawaii for one of our most relaxing massages – Lomi Lomi or Hawaiian massage.

Imagine yourself being massaged under a tropical sun

Picture yourself lying on a warm table with soothing, sweeping massage strokes washing like waves over you, and gentle arms rocking you gently from side to side.

Like the sound of that? Then this is the massage for you.

This particular massage uses long gliding strokes up and down the body.  The forearms and hands make rhythmical flowing movements like gentle waves washing over the body. This technique differentiates Lomi Lomi from other massages.

Hawaiian massage uses long, flowing strokes with the forearms

It can be gentle one moment, powerful the next. It is also unusual in that different parts of the body are massaged simultaneously, notably the back and the stomach. The massage also incorporates some passive manipulation and gentle stretching of arms and legs. Lomi Lomi is also known as “loving hands” because it demands a high level of concentration from the masseur and a great respect for the person being massaged with a real intention to do good.

The massage stimulates the circulation of blood, creates a sense of deep relaxation and intense well-being, promotes the circulation of energy and the expulsion of negative emotions and tensions and encourages a better self-connectivity.

Throughout the month of May, Just Massage is offering a 20% discount on 60 and 90 minute Hawaiian massages (Lomi Lomi).

40€ instead of 50€ for a 60 minute massage

52€ instead of 65€ for a 90 minute massage

Offer valid up to and including 31 May 2017.

Offer does not include gift vouchers.
