Benefits Of A Naturist Massage
What is Naturist Massage?
The naturist traditional massages that I offer are simply proper massage from an experienced, qualified and insured therapist, but performed with you or both of us completely naked.
What are the benefits of Naturist Massage?
There are several benefits to you having your massage naked:
- I can work on important areas of your body (such as buttocks) that are excluded from Spa-style non-naturist massage
- you may feel more comfortable - even liberated - being completely naked, without the feel of towels or clothing on your body
- we don't have to worry about the inconvenience and disruption of "towel management", so the massage can be more relaxed and natural, without interruption
- if I (your therapist) am naked too, I can move more freely, not have to worry about my clothing rubbing on your body, and we can equalise the temperature of the room so that we are both comfortable

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.
Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
How Does Deep Tissue Massage Work?
When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation.
Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist often uses direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles.
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage
Unlike classic massage therapy, which is used for relaxation, deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as:
- Chronic pain
- Limited mobility
- Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury)
- Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Postural problems
- Ostearthritis pain
- Muscle tension or spasm
• Tips for enjoying
Good communication is very important. Before the session, give accurate health information and let the massage therapist know what you want from the massage.
One way to be more "body-centered" and to quiet the mind is to follow the hands of the massage therapist and focus on how the touch feels.
If you are dizzy or light headed after the massage, do not get off the table too fast.
Drink extra water after a massage.
Allow for some open, quiet time after your massage session if possible. Sometimes one needs a little time to integrate or absorb the results of the massage session or needs some "re-entry" time.
The Treatment Room has flexible opening times are 9am to 10pm 7 days a week
