Huon Healing Hands
To my valued Clients,
due to COVID-19 the Sports Centre and my Clinic will need to implement precautionary measures:
Please do not attend your massage appointment if you are feeling unwell, or if you have any cold / flu like symptoms.
Please do not attend the practice if you have just returned from travelling overseas in the last 14 days, or if you have been in contact with anyone returning from overseas.
Shower or rinse in preparation for your appointment, paying attention to your feet-not only in consideration for your therapist.The therapeutic oils are beneficial if left on your body after treatment.
Please use the hand sanitiser on your arrival at the entrance of the centre
Socially distance, ( no shaking of hands or hugging ) This is a little sad, but we could smile large and wide ! :0)
Please ensure you follow best practices to protect the health and well being of yourself, your family, and our community at large.
With warmth, please take care . Yours sincerely Jessica
Release, Relax, Unwind

Remedial and Sports Massage
Remedial massage is assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. It is performed applying techniques like triggers point,deep tissue,Muscle Energy techniques and Myofascial techniques to name some, to create conditions for the body to return to normal health after injury.
Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension and tone.This will in turn promote the return to normal joint and bone position.It increases the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions from injury.Remedial Massage is often used as complementary therapy to physiotherapy.
Reflexology is an ancient practice used to treat various conditions in the body.It is based on the long established principle that energy zones which run through the body link areas of the feet to major organs, glands and body parts.This therapeutic method is performed on the feet but may be applied to the hands by the practitioner using thumb and fingers.
Any part of the body that is the source of pain,
illness, or potential debility can be strengthened through the application of pressure at the respective foot or hand location.
Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of
plant-derived, aromatic essential oils to promote
physical and psychological
well-being. It is sometimes used as topical application, mixed within massage oils,inhalation trough diffusers or water.
In combination with massage and other therapeutic techniques they can produce different emotional and physical reactions and are part of a holistic treatment approach.
A slow and gentle massage to address stress and anxiety and to reduce tension.It is all about relaxation and can involve aromatic oils on request.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
Yoga is a thousand-year-old form of spiritual and physical practice which involves various sets of postures, stretches, visualisations, and breathing exercises performed in a sequence. There are many different types,each with their own theories, benefits and postures (asanas).
I teach three different styles of yoga.
Firstly,Iyengar Yoga ,a style of yoga developed by B.K.S. Iyengar, a prolific yoga teacher, author, and the main person credited with popularising yoga around the world (referred to as having been “The Father of Modern Yoga”).Iyengar yoga focuses on achieving perfect alignment in the postures, which are generally fairly static. To help with achieving alignment, students use yoga aids such as blocks, straps, chairs, and ropes.
Secondly,restorative yoga is one of the gentlest and most relaxing forms of yoga and is a personal favourite of mine.And Yin/Yang Yoga.
Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin.
A therapeutic cupping treatment involves warming and placing cups, usually made of glass, on the skin. By warming the air within the cup, a vacuum is created, and when it is applied to the skin, the tissue is drawn up into the cup. This increases the blood flow, loosens the fascia or connective tissue, and is thought to stimulate healing. The cup may be left in place for several minutes and then removed, that can leave behind a red, circular welt.The theory behind cupping is that it moves or stimulates the body's natural energy — also called qi.
It is similar to the way deep tissue massage can be used to break up scar tissue and reduce pain.The benefits of cupping include local pain relief and muscle relaxation.Cupping improves overall health by removing the energy blockages that TCM practitioners identify as barriers to the flow of healthy energy or qi. For athletes, cupping may help increase blood flow to a particular muscle region or help reduce pain.
