During your Energising treatment
Before your massage you will remove your clothes (except for underwear), and lie on the table covered by a towel. Only the area that is being worked on will be uncovered. This can be daunting for some but professional therapists are used to the human body and make every effort to ensure you are comfortable during your treatment.
Your therapist will use a pre-blended energy oil to deliver your massage. They will take care to avoid administering tapotement massage onto the bony areas of your body, including your spine, joints and knees, but don’t hesitate to let them know if the pressure is ever too intense.
Energising massage techniques
This massage includes tapotement in form of; cupping, hacking, beating and plucking, with plenty of kneading and effleurage too (long strokes). Your therapist will tailor their technique to your specific needs.
After your Energising massage
You should feel energised, less tense and have improved circulation. You may find that you enjoy maintaining this sense of vitality by having massages more frequently, perhaps alternating Energising with Relaxing or Urban Classic massages.
What is the difference between an Energising and a Relaxing massage?
An Energising message is upbeat, fast-paced and vigorous, while a Relaxing massage uses long, slow strokes to get you ready to rest.
Does an Energising massage hurt?
Your therapist will use the edge of their hand, a cupped hand or the tips of their fingers to administer your massage, which will be completely tailored to you. It should never be too intense to handle, but if you’re ever uncomfortable tell your therapist and they’ll adjust their technique.
