Petals Signature Body Massage in Bath and Bradford on Avon

Body massage at Petals is for both sexes, it is for everone. I specialize in Stress Release Treatment which is a combination of full body massage and Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy.  It is my signature massage generally tailor made to meet the individual's need using a fusion of different techniques ranges from Deep Tissue massage, Swedish, Sports, Aromatherapy, Hot Bamboo, Cupping and Accupressure points.  I also developed my own technique based from years of experience.

I am not your standard massage therapist. There is more to massage than following a sequence of technique.  I have a natural ability to massage coupled with the ability to stay present during the session.  When I practice presence or deeper awareness whilst providing massage, I find that this approach brings about an undeniable and unspoken quality to the experience, hence, most of my clients will say it is more than a body massage.  

I do favour quality and quality requires time so I only offer a minimum of 90 minutes of full body massage.  A two hour session or more is also available.  The slower the pace the better.  You can read the quality of my work on my testimonial page.

Ring 07742 583251 to make an appointment.  A 5 - 10 minutes consultation is a must but will not cut off your treatment time.

Why have body massage?

Touch is a fundamental, multilayered and a powerful form of communication.  It is inherent in many forms of massage and bodywork is the pleasure of being touched.  Chemicals in the body create pleasure moods and that feeling of connectedness increase during massage.  These chemical responses to massage are one of the main reasons for the therapeutic benefits of body massage.

What to do before your body massage treatment

1) Have a shower before your appointment - hygiene is very important.

2) Do not eat a big meal before your treatment.  Your digestive system is hard at work when you just had a meal.  The circulatory system normally help the digestive system.  During massage, your circulation flow will increase and you do not want diverting the circulatory system away from the digestive system.  Besides it is uncomfortable lying on your front with full stomach.

3) Must come on time for your appointment.
