Introducing YOU Massage Southampton Therapist, Velichka “Veli”
Veli has some exclusive Special Offers for her massage treatments, available December 2017 and January 2018 *subject to availability.
My name is Velichka and I am a Massage Therapist, originally from Bulgaria. I am one of the newer Massage Therapists at YOU Massage, Southampton and specialise as a Holistic and Aromatherapy therapist.
I discovered my passion for massage in 2010 and qualified as a Massage Therapist in 2016. I attended a one-year Shiatsu and Chinese Medicine training course at Shibumi Shiatsu School in Italy where I lived for 15 Years. That was an amazing experience which gave me a lot of knowledge and inspiration.
The treatments I am offering are:
Hot stone massage is beneficial on both physical and psychological levels.
Hot stone massage is a natural therapy in which warmed stones are positioned on parts of the client’s body to maximize the therapeutic benefits. These stones are heated in sanitizing water before use. Hot stone massages are beneficial on both physical and psychological levels.
The benefits of hot stones massage include
- Muscle Relaxation
The heat from the stones helps your muscles to relax, allowing the massage therapist to manipulate your deep tissues more effectively. Overly tense muscles can hinder the massage procedure, so if your muscles are extremely tight or stiff, the heated stones may provide the extra relaxation you need for the massage to be beneficial in releasing tension and easing sore muscles.
- Pain Relief
While all types of massage can help to relieve pain caused by tense muscles, stiff joints or injuries, a hot stone massage may provide greater relief due to the intense nature of the massage. Because the hot stones allow the massage therapist to penetrate deeper, you may find that a hot stone massage leaves you feeling physically better than a Swedish or deep-tissue massage.
- Improved Circulation
As the heat from the stones penetrates your deeper body tissues, your blood vessels open, resulting in improved circulation. Poor circulation can lead to fatigue, which tenses the muscles, and a buildup of fluid and lactic acid in the muscles. Increased circulation delivers more oxygen to the muscles, which can help ease aches and pains.
Massage therapy can result in psychological benefits as well as physical ones in many people. You may find that the relaxation afforded to you through a hot stone massage helps ease some of your mental stress and tension. A hot stone massage may also help you combat some of the symptoms of anxiety disorders and depression. While massage therapy is not a substitute for traditional medical or psychiatric care, it can be an integral part of your treatment plan.
Reflexology is an alternative treatment for a variety of conditions, and has been in use for thousands of years. The reflexologist works by applying pressure to specific areas on the hands, feet and ears that affect certain reflex areas of the body. There are connections between zones in these areas that represent certain areas of your body that can be adjusted or managed through these zones.
Now, let’s look a bit more into which benefits reflexology has been repeatedly linked to over the years. If you suffer from any of these health conditions, why not give it a shot! What do you have to lose? Continue reading
