Massage Type

 


Cellulite is the medical term for lumpy, dimpled flesh that appears primarily on the thighs, buttocks, hips and stomach.
Approximately 80% of women over 20 years will get cellulite.
Fat pushes through the connective tissue (fascia) beneath the skin, causing a rippled appearance.

 

Although there isn’t a permanent solution to banishing the orange peel effect, massage can do wonders to improve it. Massage will speed up the circulation which will improve the appearance of the skin and improve the overall texture and tone.
Unlike other hand held cellulite massagers, which can be very tiring to use, the Mitts cover your hands preventing your hands from tiring.
Massage the superficial fascial to increase, tissue flexibility, hydration, and oxygenation in the dermis, hypodermis and subcutaneous fat to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Stimulating blood flow and lymphatic drainage will also reduce the effects of tissue congestion that can also cause pain.

Massage will soften, hydrate and oxygenate the issue transforming your skin tone and texture and making you more comfortable in your own skin.

Testimonials
 
“The after effects of the massage continue for a lot longer after the treatment has finished than just normal massage.”  
 
“Eight months after sustaining 17% burns over my upper back, neck and shoulders from an electric shock, just a few minutes of massage with the massage mitt my back felt ‘normal’ again.”  
 
“I use the massage mitt daily in the shower with my shower gel. To start with the fibro pain was quite acute but after a few days the pain slowly disappeared and I felt ‘fresher’, less pain and more able to cope with my everyday aches and pains.”  
 
“I use the massage mitt to put my creams on daily, my skin is softer and smoother, and I seem to have more energy. I notice the difference when I don’t use it.”  
 
“I used to have chronic TMJ (Tempo Mandibular Joint) pain, now every few days I massage my, face, neck and shoulders with the Mitts and now all the pain has gone away.”  
 
“Eight months after fracturing my wrist in a car accident, and having two operations to pate and pin my wrist together it still had limited movement. With one treatment I had minimal pain and a massive increase to the wrist movement that lasted two days. It’s a shame that the insurance wouldn’t fund any more treatments, ‘a jaw dropping experience”.  
 
“I massage my lower legs daily and the circulation, texture and colouring of my lower legs has defiantly improved since using the massage mitt.”
 
“Eight months after my hernia operation my scar was causing me considerable pain; I haven’t had a problem since my one treatment.”  
 
“The chronic trapped nerve in my neck was considerably better after one treatment, the altered sensation in my fingers returned to normal. I was symptoms free for six weeks. I have never experienced anything like this treatment. I’ve had this condition a long time.”  
 
“I have a history of chronic Achilles tendinopathy, for many years I have tried various physiotherapist and treatment but after spending a fortune I resided myself to the fact that it wasn’t going to get better. I used the massage mitt for a few weeks for just a few minutes at a time in the shower with amazing results. I now treat the occasional symptoms with the massage mitt and the debilitating pain and swelling is now a thing of the past”  
 
“They are very good for achy legs and especially god for cellulite areas.”
 
“Started using the massage mitts following a knee injury, I was really struggling to get the swelling and stiffness in the knee under control but since I have been using the mitts I have seen a big improvement. I use the mitts most days now and use them for the odd aches and pains as well as on the injured knee. I would definitely recommend.”  
 
“Wonderful massage mitts, ‘I wouldn’t be without them’. You can actually get such a lot of relief from aches and pains by simply massaging the problem area yourself with the cleverly contoured mittens designed with nodules all over so that you can even use the back of your hand or the thumb to reach the spot. I use them regularly in the shower and also give myself a head massage and even my hair has improved. To be able to massage yourself and family whenever you choose at home in complete privacy is such a bonus. I feel I must get in touch to tell you how happy I am with my Massage Mitts!”  
 
“I was a little worried to start using them as I had torn tendons in my shoulder which was very painful. I used the mitts in the shower and found it was very relieving! After my operation I began to use the mitts daily and the doctors were very surprised with the speed of my recovery and the fast disappearance of the scar! Thank you for advising me to use the ‘magic mitts!’”

Bowen Technique

Bowen Technique was Developed in Australia in the 1950s, the Bowen technique is a therapy that encourages the body to reset and heal itself. Rather than attempting to treat specific ailments, the therapy incorporates a variety of light touches and moves which aim to encourage the body to empower its own resources for self-healing. Although it may seem to have much in common with some directional, massage-based therapies, practitioners are keen to stress that the Bowen technique incorporates a very holistic approach in which physical changes in the body post-treatment are actually the result of the body realigning itself, rather than as a result of any physical manipulation.

 

How does it work?

The series of gentle moves used by the practitioner are said to balance and stimulate energy flows in the body. Once a deep sense of overall relaxation has been achieved, the body is able to begin its own restorative process. Healing seems to occur by affecting the body's nervous system, which creates homeostasis (balance) at the cellular level.

 

What does it involve?

Treatments normally last about one hour and consist of a series of gently rolling connective tissue moves, using a light touch. Each move aims to address the entire system producing maximum results with minimal intervention. There are frequent pauses between movements, during which the practitioner leaves the room, to allow the body time to respond and benefit. The treatment is usually carried out whilst the client is clothed, and no oils are used.

 

What is it good for?

As well as initiating a deep state of relaxation that encourages the body to heal itself, the Bowen technique is also extremely effective for pain. It is used as a remedial therapy for numerous ailments including sports injuries, skeletal and muscular problems, allergies, respiratory problems, digestive problems, RSI, teeth grinding, headaches and sciatica.

It seems to improve rehabilitation time, regardless of how old or recent the injury may be. Other diseases that have shown improvement from using the Bowen technique are multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy.

 

Bowen Technique

These are stressful times, but what do we mean by stress.  The word stress is one that is used all too often to describe a set of circumstances that aren’t always clear. .The presence of stress in our human existence plays a major role in our continued survival.  If we have to give a speech, ask for a pay rise or take a driving test our body’s undergoes a series of intricate and various brain regions are all recruited into action.  Our adrenal glands secrete adrenaline and flood the body.  The heart rate rises, our breath quickens, oxygen rushes to the muscles and our emune cells are geared up to deal with any injury.  After the test or speech everything then hopefully calms down. 

 

This process of equilibrium through change’ is called allostasis and is the reaction that was developed for dangers that humans might have been exposed to by facing wild animals or a shortage of food.  It was not designed for increased worry over paying bills and paying mortgages and debts.  The idea is that we are designed to respond with ‘fight or flight’, as and when needed, enabling us to deal with the occasional danger or confrontation.  In our modern lives we often end up being exposed to stresses that are ongoing and prolonged.  This in turn builds up the release of the powerful hormones that we simply shouldn’t be carrying around constantly.   Often without realising its coming, the result is the burnout that we often see through the doors of our treatment rooms and even see in other therapists.

 

The over production of cortisol has some dramatic effects.  Cortisol is the stress hormone that enables all the physiological reactions mentioned that we associate with a stressful situation.  Dr. Bruse McEwan of the Rockerfeller University found in his research that prolonged stress weakens the functions is to help mobilise energy in times of high stress by releasing glucose into the blood.  The trouble is that if you stay stressed for too long, it acts with high insulin levels and sends fat into storage at the waist.  This makes good sense in the case of a famine, but it increases the risk of heart disease, cancer and other illnesses as well as making us miserable and often depressed immune system, strains the heart, damages memory cells and deposits fat in the abdomen rather than the hips or buttocks.  One of cortisol’s main

 

We have to be clear about exactly what we mean by stress as it applies to us.  We can work a pressurised job and really enjoy it, and it’s important not to confuse the idea of stress and pressure.  If we look carefully at a lot of the situations that we use to apply the word stress to, we could quite easily change to pressure and at the same time change the way we feel about what’s going on.  Stress as a way of handling day-to-day pressure is, to a great extent, a learned behaviour and choice we make.  Of course we need the reflexes that will help us to steer a car clear of an accident, but do we need the same reactions to the queues at the checkout, even if we are an hour late?

Apart from the chemical reactions we have already mentioned, the physical is often what we notice most.  There has long been a link between stress and depression and the posture implications for both problems could seem quite obvious.  It’s unlikely that you’ll see many depressed people walking around with their heads up and their chests out.  The natural position of depression is slightly hunched and pushed forward.  Generally speaking, the same position will apply for those people are stressed.

 

Prolonged exposure to stressful situations will fairly quickly manifest in tightness in muscular structures.  The stress hormones that are released into the body directly affected the whole structural system.  Keep the stress levels up and before long, the neck will tighten up, the shoulders stiffen and backaches, headaches and joint pain become a regular feature.  Of course the main thing we need to do is to remove the object of stress, or change the way we view this.  But it is equally important to have a holistic treatment in order to help get things back to ‘normal’.

Anyone who has seen a Bowen Treatment will likely be surprised at the small amount of work that is needed to prompt a response and it’s a surprise to find how quickly people do relax and let go.  One of the key elements of the Bowen Technique is that the practitioner leaves the room in between sets of moves and, by leaving the client in what is essentially their own space, allows then to settle in deeply to a pattern of breathing and relaxation that is difficult to achieve with many other treatments.
