"Massage is kneaded for the BODY as much as healing is
needed for the SOUL"
What is Massage
Massage is no longer considered as a "luxury" however part of a healthier way of life and effective in many ways such as, release stressors, muscular pain, digestive issues, Arthritis & sciatica, it is a healing touch movement that aims to manipulate your skin, muscles, tendons and stimulates circulation to encourage more blood flow. Massage will increase energy, reduce muscle soreness and tension and re-connect you to your body to feel grounded, calm and relaxed.
living in today's modern world can lead to sensory overload meaning the brain/body is unable to process all the information received externally, causing heightened senses, feeling out of source or suffering physically and mentally.
Our tissues, nervous and muscular system hold memories of any traumas or upsets we have experienced, emotions are then stored in the body or parts of the body so When we experience sensory overload the sympathetic nervous system triggers the fight-or-flight response that increases when stressed, hormones responsible for running are then released causing heightened heart rate and blood pressure - when we don't run these hormones become stagnant and toxic in the body's systems causing tension & emotional sensitivity, when the body is stressed this response can trigger & heighten old memories & shift into overdrive which hugely slows down the body’s natural mechanism to heal.
Hands on massage aims to bring the nervous system back in the parasympathetic state referred to as “homeostasis”, while in this state of relaxation the body can rest and digest, in addition it serves to release tension, lowers heart rate, increase circulation, promotes energy and release hormones responsible for positive mood further allowing your body to heal mentally, emotionally and physically.

“I have just had the most healing and body restorative session with Lorraine. Lorraine is so welcoming and warm and the therapy room is a Haven of tranquillity.
Once inside you are provided with a robe and slippers and invited into a comfy chair; this is the start of the magic.
Lorraine is 100% thorough and gets to the root of the problem."
I have had both massages and holistic treatments from Lorraine she is a brilliant therapist that can tune right into the body and get to the actual cause of your body and muscles being stressed and tense, I can’t recommend enough how powerful and beautiful her treatments are.
Lorraine is fantastic with make making you feel relaxed and comfortable during a Reiki session (I would definitely describe myself as a nervous person). The immense feeling of calmness like you were floating is indescribable. I had lost my dad a few years ago and during the Reiki session I felt like I was reliving a lovely memory.
I would absolutely recommend Lorraine for emotional and physical relief through Reiki.
I had such an amazing treat today from an unexpected gift received that allowed me to experience a session with Lorraine today, she is a fabulous person and healer and I felt like a new person leaving.
I’ve been to see Lorraine for both a deep tissue massage and for a shamanic journeying session. The shamanic journey was new for me, but what I got from it was a wonderful journey into your own mind and inner thoughts, opening up a new world, which I see as increasing my resilience, and which has become a safe haven to go to when stressed or overwhelmed.
I highly recommend going to see Lorraine!
"I highly recommend you book an appointment with Lorraine, she has a wonderful range of skills and a warm, healing approach.
Will definitely be back."
