Meet the Therapists

Janee Swan

Thai massage or Thai massage/deep tissue fusion – sequence of gentle (but firm) pressure techniques with the thumbs, palms and feet will relax the muscle structure and quieten the mind. Light yoga style stretching is mixed into this massage helping to open the joints and increasing mobility, giving you a boost of energy. ​In a treatment, I will ‘meet’ your body and be guided by where your tension needs support to release.  Using the breath, intention, and Thai massage techniques, you will receive a renewed sense of lightness and wellbeing as the sensation of ‘holding’ is transformed into spaciousness. Thai Massage is performed on a mat on the floor, clients wear light, loose-fitting clothing. Oils can be added for extra relaxation.  It is suitable during pregnancy.

Holistic deep relaxation massage – Oil massage focussed on deep relaxation using a variety of techniques to gently lull you into a deep and blissful state of relaxation.

Shiatsu is a healing art, originating in Japan, which uses the power of touch and pressure to enable each of us to contact our own natural self -healing qualities. In a Shiatsu session, the Practitioner uses pressure with thumbs, fingers, palms, and sometimes knees, elbows and feet, to induce deep relaxation and a feeling of well being. It is sometimes dynamic, sometimes seemingly quite static, involving pressure on the limbs and torso, as well as rotations, the kneading and releasing of tight muscles and supporting areas of weakness. To receive, Shiatsu is deeply relaxing and yet invigorating, leaving a feeling of tranquillity and a sense of being in touch with every part of one’s body. Giving Shiatsu is a like performing a moving meditation and often leaves the giver feeling as balanced and energised as the receiver.

Shiatsu was developed from traditional oriental massage and, in common with acupuncture and other oriental therapies, it works on the body’s energetic system, using the network of meridians, or energy pathways, which connect to the internal organs, as well as relating to our emotional, psychological, spiritual  harmony and well being.

Therapeutic Thai Massage is a traditional form of bodywork that forms part of Thai medicine. I work on the body using various techniques; hands, feet, elbows, scarves, spoons, heated herbal compresses, herbs and liniments can all be employed to release tension and stagnation in the skin, soft tissue, joints and bones, and around the organs, restoring harmony, balance, and flow. Each session includes a consultation so that treatment is appropriate and effective. Depending on what you need personally, and in response to your constitutional element, treatment may be deeply relaxing or energising and revitalising.

Thai Massage can be applied to help with issues such as headaches, knee, back, shoulder and neck pain, premenstrual tension and many other issues. It is also very effective for long-term conditions, from Multiple Sclerosis to Fibromyalgia, or after a stroke or illness, where it can help reconnect you to your body and a felt sense of your body.

Therapeutic Thai Massage can be done on anyone, of any age and physical ability, as it is entirely adapted to suit your needs, following a detailed consultation. It is deep and healing for body and mind.
