Massage Therapy Treatments Wakefield

Massages help target specific problem areas in the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. Using deliberate, slow strokes or friction across the grain of the muscle, the therapist addresses chronic tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or injuries.

How can massage therapy help?

Massage therapy can help the body relax, which in turn can help one let go of anxious and fearful thoughts. Massage can relieve muscle pain and tension, improve circulation, and increase flexibility.

As a relaxation technique, massage therapy can work to manage stress levels, reduce tension and lower the heart rate, and generally make a client feel calmer.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage Wakefield

Some people find the warmth of the hot stones to be comforting and deeply relaxing.

Hot stone massage is suited to people who tend to feel chilly. It’s also suited for people who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage. The heat relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist to work the muscles using lighter pressure.

Although there’s a lack of research on the benefits of hot stone massage, the therapy is often used for the same conditions as a classic massage:

  • Anxiety
  • Back pain
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Osteoarthritis

Is it painful?

The hot stones are smooth and typically several inches long. The stones are warmed using an electric massage stone heater so that the temperature can be controlled. If the stones are too hot or uncomfortable, be sure to let the therapist know immediately.

What to expect during a hot stone massage

A hot stone massage may begin with classic massage techniques to prepare the body’s muscle tissue. The therapist will place a sheet or towel over you before placing the two rows of warm stones on your back. Stones may also be placed on your stomach, palms, feet, toes, chest, and face.

Warm stones may also be placed on your legs, abdomen, between your toes, in the palms of your hands, or on your forehead.

The therapist applies massage oil to the body. Holding the stones in the palms, the therapist uses gliding movements to move the stones along the muscles with added pressure and heat.

Who shouldn’t get a hot stone massage

While hot stone massage is generally considered safe when performed by a trained and licensed massage therapist, it’s not right for everyone.

Consult your doctor if you have a medical condition, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, varicose veins, migraines, autoimmune disease, decreased pain sensitivity, cancer, autoimmune disease, epilepsy, tumours, or metal implants, or are on medication that thins the blood.

Also check with your doctor if you have had recent surgery or have recent wounds or areas of weakened or inflamed skin.

Pregnant women and children should avoid hot stone massage.

Deep tissue massage & its benefits

Massage therapists will use fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows, and forearms during a deep tissue massage. You may be asked to breathe deeply as the massage therapist works on tense areas.

Deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as chronic muscle pain, injury rehabilitation, and the following conditions:

  • Lower back pain
  • Limited mobility
  • Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls)
  • Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Postural problems
  • Muscle tension in the hamstrings, glutes, IT band, legs, quadriceps, rhomboids, upper back
  • Upper back or neck pain
  • Osteoarthritis pain
  • Sciatica
  • Sports concerns (runners, athletes)
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Tennis elbow
  • Fibromyalgia

After the massage

you may feel some stiffness or soreness, but it should subside within a day or so. Be sure to contact your massage therapist if you have concerns or if you feel pain after having a massage.
Drinking water after the massage may help to flush the metabolic waste from the tissues.

Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage is a relaxing holistic treatment that uses acupressure massage on the head, face, neck and shoulders. It aims to re-balance your body's energies.

What is an Indian head massage?

Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic treatment that has been practiced in India for thousands of years, and is incredibly relaxing. Part of the Hindu health care practice of Ayurveda, Indian head massage focuses on your head, neck and shoulders. It is a deep massage, which uses a variety of pressure and techniques that tap into your seven “‘chakras” or paths of energy and encourage healing and balance in your whole body.

Indian head massage has become a popular component of combined treatments or rituals, including massage and facials.

What is an Indian head massage good for?

This form of massage focuses on the three higher “chakras” – mind, body and spirit and as such hits your energy epicenter.

It doesn’t seem sufficient to say that a good, long Indian head massage (involving proper neck and shoulder and back massage as well) will relax you. It’s more than this. It should make you feel detached and serene, and leave you completely relaxed.

Even if you don’t experience this level of relaxation, this massage treatment offers all kinds of other benefits. It will relieve aches, pains and tension in your neck, back and shoulders, improve the texture of your hair and encourage it to grow. An Indian head massage stimulates the flow of blood, lymph and oxygen in your upper body which will clear your sinuses, relieve stress and help you sleep better. And because it can help cure headaches (even migraine!), eye strain and anxiety, an Indian head massage can even help you to concentrate better at work.

What’s more, the use of fragrant oils can stimulate as well as relax you, clearing your head, and soothing you even further.

All in all, an Indian head massage will leave you feeling happier and more relaxed all round.

Before you go

You should wear loose-fitting clothing, so that you don’t feel restricted or uncomfortable. It’s a good idea not to have too many layers.
Indian head massage is kind to hair; it is not kind to hair-dos. Remove any hair bands, clips or slides before you go in, and book that hair appointment for the day after.
Bear in mind as well that as you may have oils rubbed into your scalp – you might want to take a cap, “Alice” or other hair band with you to make yourself look respectable on your way home, or back at work.


As with any treatment it is important to tell your therapist in advance if you:

  • are, or think you might be, pregnant
  • have any medical conditions or are receiving any treatment or medication
  • have recently had an injury or operation
  • are allergic to anything, particularly skin allergies
  • have any broken skin or sores on your scalp as this may affect the kind of oil and treatment you receive.

What to expect from an Indian head massage

A complete Indian head massage will probably take between 25 and 45 minutes. Your therapist will probably chat with you beforehand to get an idea of your lifestyle, any particular aches, pains or ailments you have. She may ask you if you are having any medical treatments or taking medicines, as this might affect which oils she uses, and what type of pressure and technique.
