Holistic Massage Therapy By Rita Davies

The holistic massage that Rita delivers is unique to you, supporting your body on all 4 levels, physically emotionally mentally and spiritually. Rita is an experienced intuitive practitioner since 1993 and listens to you, your body and treats you accordingly with a variety of techniques.

Rita may include hot stones, essential oils, visualisation, cranial sacral therapy and trigger points. The body is composed of more than a single layer of muscle, when you have stiffness or discomfort it’s at middle to lower layer where the dysfunction starts. Deep and soft tissue massage applied by a skilled practitioner can assist in re-aligning the deeper muscle and removing pain. The fibres are copious with blood vessels and nerve receptors; by using Neuro–muscular techniques most muscular aches and pains can be repaired.

The treatment involves accessing the offending muscle groups with passive, active stretching and triggers points.

Then focus of Holistic massage is to support whole body healing, inducing relaxation with attention on specific health problems, and may help the following:

  • Improving mood
  • Improving sleep
  • Relieving muscular tension
  • Promoting a sense of well being
  • Relieving anxiety and stress

What to expect from a treatment: You will be asked to complete an emotional and medical history. Rita will focus on the presenting problem and treat accordingly. You maybe asked to undress to your under wear. Men are requested to wear shorts. Warm towels are draped for your comfort. Rita may stretch your joints and muscles to ‘free up’ tension. The pressure is variable with a variety of techniques used to help soften fibrotic tissue and relax your mind and body.

The initial consultation treatment fee is £60.00 for 1 hour 30 minutes. For further information or to book an appointment contact Rita Davies on 01905  763481.

Testimonials

“Having suffered for many years from Chilblains on my toes and being unable to find an effective curve, I turned to Rita Davies at the Healing Touch Complementary Heath Care Centre Bath Road Worcester. My initial assessment by Rita confirmed that i was suffering from quite a bad bout of Chilblains with more than one Chilblain on each toe.

My first treatment was deep massage of my toes and feet, in conjunction with a potion of essential oils mixed by Rita. The relief and feeling of well being after the first treatment was totally indescribable and very welcomed. My assessment would be that the initial consultation saw an improvement of well over 90%. I continued applying and massaging to my effected toes, the essential oils that Rita had mixed for me each evening before bedtime, to see further improvements. My second treatment from Rita went on to compound the already good work that she had done to relive my painful feet.I can only speak highly of Rita and the Healing Touch Complementary Heath Care Centre, and would recommend anyone with any well being problem give them a try you would have nothing to lose and could be well surprised.” – Phill – 

 

Time to Exfoliate By Rita Davies

We’ve all heard that it is important to exfoliate. But why is it so important and what exactly does exfoliating do?

I exfoliate 3 x a week after every shower it leaves my skin beautiful and tingly skin.

What is exfoliation? Exfoliation is the technique of removing the top layer of dead skin cells from of the epidermis of your skin to encourage the live cells down in the dermis of the skin to turnover and refresh the skin’s appearance.

Why do we need to exfoliate? Skin is constantly turning over, generating new cells at the lower level (the dermis) and sending them up to replace dead skin cells on the upper layer (epidermis). As we age, the cell turnover process slows down. Cells begin to gather unevenly on the skin’s surface which can lead to dry patches and a lack-luster appearance. Through exfoliating, we can help remove the dead skin cells, revealing the fresher, younger cells below and restoring skin’s natural clarity and brightness.

Who needs to exfoliate? Everyone! Exfoliating smooth’s your skin and increases circulation. However, some people can tolerate more aggressive exfoliation than others. Test exfoliating on a small patch of skin on your inner arm to gauge your tolerance.

How often should I exfoliate? I recommend exfoliating your face and body 2–3 times a week. However, older skin can be thinner and more sensitive. So, make sure to monitor how your skin reacts to exfoliating and adjust accordingly. It is actually possible to over-exfoliate which can lead to moisture loss, sensitivity, dryness and irritation.

There are many exfoliating products available including creams, scrubs and sponges, to suit all skin types.

Slumber Stress By Rita Davies

When lack of sleep is an impossible situation?

If you’ve ever been unfortunate enough to suffer from insomnia, you’ll know how annoying it can be.

Well known remedies such as warm milk, chamomile tea, warm bath or shower, not reading or watching a stimulating story before sleeping are considered possible methods to help you fall asleep,  however, they are unlikely to work for everyone.

If you’ve tried absolutely everything, why not give aromatherapy a chance?

Here’s what works for me.

Main Rule of thumb if you don’t like the aroma it not good for you.

Don’t put any essential oils directly on your skin, always blend in a carrier oil, such as almond, grape seed or coconut to name  a few also  check there’s is no contra indications e.g. if your in your first trimester of pregnancy. Always ask qualified Aroma therapist or pharmacist.

Prepare yourself for sleep an hour before bedtime with beautiful calming aroma’s relaxing music and a warm comfy room.

All you need is a few essential oils a vaporizer and the basic know how of how to blend and use oils safely.

When in bed try gentle breathing and counting breaths placing one hand on tummy and other on collar bone focus on your breath.

Add a couple of drops of essential oil (try the one listed below) on a table spoon of carrier oil or buy blended oils added to your nice, warm bath you’ll find yourself drifting off in no time.

Alternatively, use an electric bedside diffuser; this oscillates the essential oils and the aromas surround the room slowly, gradually helping you fall asleep.

The electric plug –in are safe for bedtime, depending on the  quantity of water use up to 5 drops of essential oils. You can mix most oils for a lovely synergy just think what herbs and flowers like to grow together.

Lavender Essential oil

This oil, is well known  to assist in sleep  promotes deeper sleep  where the body  self heals  those who sleep in a lavender-scented environment enjoy a quality of sleep that is 20% better than in a normal room. Chamomile essential oil blends’ beautifully with Lavender makes’ an excellent sleeping solution

Marjoram essential oil

Considered even more powerful than lavender and chamomile

Marjoram is a soothing and calming just add a couple drops or in your vaporiser to a tissue and place on your pillow Sleep well.

I recommend the wonderful ZENBOW, the aroma diffuser that creates a cool, scented and relaxing mist.
