The latest addition – The Reset Massage.

Rebalance and reset the body & mind with particular focus on every movement to directly talk to your nervous system so that it can flip back into it’s natural ‘rest and relaxation’ mode (the parasympathetic nervous system) and out of ‘fight or flight’ mode.

Massage can be a particularly powerful when used to support our nervous system’s health and regulation so that it can perform it’s vital functions effectively. Massage therapy can stimulate or sooth the nerves using different techniques depending on the needed outcome.

These sessions are tailored for you and your needs on the day.

Massage is normally always associated to the manipulation, relief and healing of your muscles, ligaments and tendons – the soft tissue of the body. But what about the nervous system.

how does the reset massage work?

One of the powers of massage therapy is the power of touch. Whenever we are touched, receptor cells on your body are stimulated into action. The style and technique used of touch in this massage sends signals and transmit along your nervous system, to your brain and other parts of the body to feel calm, safe, balanced  and relaxed again.

To function properly our nerves should be free from restriction and compression. Tension within the body can create pressure on the nerves and system

By stimulating your parasympathetic nervous system through massage we can help restore the right balance and strengthen the parasympathetic nervous system so that it’s in a healthy state. With the parasympathetic nervous system functioning better, we find it easier to feel relaxed and calm, which in turn helps reduce stress and anxiety levels.

To work effectively your nervous system needs to work in harmony, be operating in it’s ‘safe’ rest and healing mode most of the time and be in balance. Modern day life often isn’t conducive to this and external day to day pressures are a common way that the system becomes unbalanced over time.

It can also:

  • support increased communication through touch and pressure which activates the receptors on the skin and underlying tissue for healthy activity.
  • relaxes the muscles
  • can help release any blocks of the nerves by reducing compression in the nerve if caused by muscle tension
  • helps to re-establish healthy responses and reflexes to stimulus through its effect on the neuromuscular paths.
  • created the production of endorphins (feel good hormones and natural pain killers) as it affects on the neurotransmitters of the brain
  • calms the nervous system and encourages it to enter into the ‘rest and healing’ state which can ease symptoms of anxiety and depression

Whether you’re struggling with high levels of stress, burnout, overwhelm, anxiety, apathy, depression (the list goes on…) the reset massage could be a great way to kick start your rebalance or a great addition to your self care routine.

Life changing! – I had a reset massage and can honestly say it is life-changing. I’ve had anxiety for some years and sometimes find it hard to be out and about, as I can easily feel overwhelmed.
Not only was the reset massage relaxing and soothing, I have done things I’ve not been able to do in years because I feel less anxious. I also feel more confident in my own body – something I never thought massage would give me.
My friends and family have all been astonished at the change – something so simple has had such a powerful effect.
I truly cannot recommend Gabriella highly enough.”
