To ensure that his massage treatment addresses your particular needs, Jean-Pierre uses a wide range of techniques, either separately or in combination. These are reflected below.
♦ Remedial Massage
When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.
It uses several specialised techniques to locate and repair damage and to support and speed up the body's own repair mechanisms. The massage is applied directly to the skin using a lubricating medium, usually oil, which ensures that the muscles associated with the disorder and mobilisation of the joint are deeply penetrated. Passive stretching moves are also used.
♦ Swedish Massage
Swedish Massage is a system of long strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, percussion, vibration and shaking motions that apply pressure between muscles and bones, rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. Swedish Massage feels good, is relaxing and invigorating.
The main purpose of Swedish Massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Some other benefits include shortening recovery time from muscular strain, increased circulation without increased heart load, stretching of ligaments and tendons, skin stimulation and soothing of the nervous system. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested as part of a regular program for stress management.
It derives its name from Per Hendrik Ling from Sweden who developed this massage technique in the early 1880s. A full body Swedish massage usually takes 1 1/2 hours.
♦ Pregnancy Massage
This form of massage offers relief for the many common discomforts of pregnancy. The specific technique provides consideration for the physiological changes during pregnancy and can be administered from the early to later stages of pregnancy. This treatment requires a minimum 1 hour duration.
