Katherine Preece: is a Holistic Massage Therapist from Malvern. Holistic therapy involves the consideration of your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing in each treatment. Essentially you are treated as a ‘whole’ person…Mind,Body & Spirit. In that sense, no two massages are the same, each session is built entirely on what you believe your mind and body needs in that moment. Katherine specialises in Oncology massage and massage for clients who have neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease, but equally enjoys giving wonderfully relaxing treatments to everyone to help Restore, Rebalance, Repair & Reconnect.
Offering: Katherine is offering 30 minute chair massages or 30 minute massages for hands and/or feet.
Chair massage can be particularly beneficial and can deliver the same beautifully relaxing benefits as couch massage. The beauty of chair massage is that it is a completely flexible therapy for the back, shoulders, neck, head and arms and can be delivered without the use of oil and without the removal of clothing.
One of the primary benefits of massage other than pure relaxation, is improved blood flow and overall circulation. This is especially true of the hands and feet due to their location at the extremities of our body. Encouraging blood, oxygen and nutrients to these areas promotes improved motion, improved nerve and tissue health and decreased inflammation.
