Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy using the aromatic extracts of plants and flowers, harnessing their benefits through various therapeutic techniques.

An aromatherapy massage is gentle and flowing compared to other massage therapies. The use of essential oils can enhance the benefits of pain-relief, supporting care of more than just muscular tension, to promote a greater sense of wellness in mind, body and spirit. Regular treatment may help to boost the immune system, aid relaxation and relieve stress and anxiety, which often promotes sounder sleep. Massage can assist in care of skin conditions such as eczema, acne or rosacea, and home care products are seen to help these benefits last. Occasionally compresses to soothe ailments such as varicose veins may also be included in the therapy session.

 

All treatments begin with an in-depth lifestyle consultation to allow us to tailor and update your bespoke treatment plan. Please allow up to an hour extra on your treatment time for treatments including Massage or 30mins for Facials and Reflexology. This time is spent with your therapist whilst you establish a personalised plan for aromatherapy, to which bespoke home-treatments can be added, if agreed. This assessment will then be regularly updated in a shorter consultation as therapy continues.

Deep tissue massage helps to relieve muscle pains and aches by having an effect on muscle tissue that lies deep beneath the surface. This is achieved by applying concentrated pressure on the muscles using a range of techniques.

 

Don't be put off by the idea of concentrated pressure - it's a common misconception that deep tissue treatments are, or should be, painful. This kind of treatment is designed to reduce pain, not create it. Your therapist will check the pressure is comfortable for you throughout to make sure you are left in an incredibly relaxed state. Your session will be put together specifically for what your body needs, making sure you get a treatment that's as unique as you are. 

 

Regular deep tissue treatments have been proven to: 

- help with aches and pains

- aid in injury rehabilitation and prevention

- improve blood pressure

- reduce scar tissue

- aid stress relief

- help relieve breathing problems.

Pregnancy Massage

In Sweden, "Swedish massage" is simply known as "classic massage". And that is exactly what it is - a classic treatment which represents the western standard for massage.  The five main techniques used in Swedish massage; stroking and gliding; kneading; rubbing; tapping or pounding; vibration, are probably what spring to mind when you think about a "typical" massage.

The various Swedish massage techniques are designed to improve your circulation, soothe your muscles and make you feel more relaxed.

Swedish massage uses softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of the body, and stronger strokes where there is thicker muscle coverage. This adjustment of pressure makes it an ideal massage for relaxation.

Besides the calming benefits, Swedish massage is thought to be good for:

  • easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins

  • improving circulation by increasing oxygen flow in the blood

  • helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple

  • reducing emotional and physical stress.

As with all treatments, inform your therapist of any medical conditions you may have and tell them if you are or just think you might be pregnant, as in this circumstance you should book a specific maternity treatment.

It's best to avoid heavy meals and alcohol in the hours leading up to your massage.

Biodynamic Massage is a non-talking therapy which looks at the person in their entirety (mind, body and soul) and can be experienced on its own or integrated into psychotherapeutic work to support and enrich the individual process.

It can particularly beneficial if you are experiencing low energy levels; stressed; feeling stuck or all over the place; feeling disjointed; feeling unsupported etc.

This form of gentle massage goes beyond the physical sense of self and helps us integrate our experiences from a relaxed state of being as emotions and feelings naturally emerge during the session.

Your therapist can work on different layers and levels to support your experience step-by-step and the techniques they use will vary accordingly per session. During one session, your therapist may guide you in melting the tensions in the body or, on another occasion, you may be aiming to contain and support difficult feelings. You could also be gently inviting a freer movement of energy to inhabit your whole being. The massage will always be tailored to your needs during each session.

Biodynamic Massage focuses on your psychological process as much as your physical being. Although it can be experienced as a standalone treatment, it is more effective as a series of weekly sessions. A minimum of 6 sessions is recommended in order to begin noticing some changes in your day to day, whilst a longer number of treatments would be ideal to support a deeper process and lasting change.​

A deeply relaxing Holistic massage can help to:

  • Relieve aching muscles and joints

  • Improve circulation

  • Eliminate toxins

  • Reduce cellulite

  • Reduce stress and anxiety, leaving you feeling calm,

relaxed and rejuvenated.

 

Each TruthPie therapist​​ brings their own wealth of knowledge to the session, so treatments will vary between practitioners. All sessions are aimed to relax but may include different elements of each practitioner's skills, so we advise choosing a practitioner who also offers other treatments you are interested in.

During the massage, you will remain covered with towels or a blanket, as is comfortable for you, with only the area being massaged uncovered. 

This is to ensure you feel more comfortable and relaxed.

Lymphatic drainage massage uses very light pressure and gentle, rhythmic strokes, usually through a thin sheet and without using oil, to increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body.

The lymph system is part of your body's immune system and helps fight infection. It is is made up of a fluid which transports nutrients and oxygen to cells, collecting toxins on the way and flushing them out through the lymph nodes. Though your body has around twice as many lymph vessels as blood vessels, the system has no pump, so the pressure from your blood vessels and movement from your muscles push the lymphatic fluid around.

 

Improving the flow and drainage of lymph can be of great benefit to your immune system as it can reduce chances of minor colds and viruses, help fight off infection, speed up healing and recovery from illness, help reduce water retention, boost weight loss, help treat lymph oedema. It can also improve your skin texture by reducing swelling, puffiness and blotches, giving you clean, healthy pores, speeding up healing in scar tissue (so it may, for example, improve the appearance of stretch marks), helping to reduce cellulite.

 

The main lymph nodes are in the neck, armpits, and groin and toxins are pushed in the direction of these nodes to help increase the flow and eliminate them from your body. You will be lightly massaged in these areas during your treatment along with the therapist performing light rhythmic strokes and pulses.

Joanna TruthPie is qualified in Lymphatic Drainage for cancer, but please note that any clients with cancer should in agreement with their oncology team before obtaining any form of massage, especially if the cancer is effecting the lymphatic system. Please contact us prior to booking if you have any concerns.

A trigger-point is an area of local facilitation that can be housed in any soft tissue structure, most usually muscle and/or fascia. Palpation from the skin, sometimes with pressure, is required to localise these. The Therapist locates and deactivates 'trigger-points', which are often tender areas, where muscles have been damaged, or have acquired a recurring spasm or 'kink' that worsens painfully when aggravated. Damaging postural holding patterns can form trigger-points in the soft tissues and the therapists understanding of how these are formed enables them to help release them and to guide their clients in how to avoid their return.

Treatment can bring relief of pain, including referred pain, alleviation of cramping and muscles in spasm.
