I was asked today if my treatment – Hydrotherm could be an alternative recommendation when clients request to book in for a deep tissue massage. I found it quite an interesting question because I think it highlights something about the way we go about choosing the massages we book in for. To put it briefly it’s fair to say on the whole that if you want to relax you opt for an Aromatherapy massage but if you’re feeling tensed up and knotty you are likely to choose a deep tissue massage because in their titles they appear to deliver what you want of them.
I would be interested to know if when you booked in for the one that you needed whether the treatment met your expectations? I believe that the Therapist is at the heart of the treatment and it’s their interpretation of their studies, their ability to adapt to an individuals needs via the consultation card and what they detect in the treatment. Hydrotherm has given me this and I am so grateful for it. What is it? Applied Anatomy in practice – being sensitive to what I sense, what I feel and then where my intuition tells me to massage and how I treat what I find. Pressure has a lot to do with the effects that can be achieved and in answer to the original question Hydrotherm relies on you the client to determine the pressure as you are laying supine on warm water cushions while I massage from underneath you so your body weight determines the pressure you receive. In addition if I feel you can tolerate it and it is required I can add extra pressure to get the best outcome for you.
A Hydrotherm treatment is booked in by duration rather than pre-empting the area to be treated. Therefore the time will be spent massaging where you need it because no matter if your treatment goes from your shoulder to your lower back you lay supported, comforted and in someway treated as you lay on the warm water cushions.
