Meaning of Holistic

What does Holistic mean?

Firstly, holistic treatments are focused on self-healing. The client is led to understand that given the right environment, they can heal themselves; the holistic treatment provides the necessary knowledge and conditions for this to happen.

Secondly, holistic therapy concentrates on treating the underlying root causes of the problem, not just the symptoms the client reports. This requires that the therapist is very skilled at counselling the client. Ultimately, in keeping with the first principle outlined above, the client must understand the cause of their illness and want to treat it.

Thirdly, the holistic approach treats the mind and body as tightly interconnected systems with each affecting the other. This is taken for granted in everyday life, but a practical consequence is that even if the client has not recognised the underlying psychological causes of (for example) stress, they can still benefit from the physical effects of massage. And in the hands of a competent therapist, the client will come to understand the causes of the stress and be able to make the changes in their life to address them.

In conclusion, holistic practices represent empowerment for the client. They allow those who want to take responsibility for their own well being the opportunity to do so. Holistic practitioners help people to help themselves.

Summer is coming and we would all like to show off a golden and radiant complexion. In order to achieve the desired and long-lasting results, we should start preparing our skin for the sun now.

Skin preparation for sun exposure starts with a good cleansing using twice a week a specific scrub for face and body. The scrub will help you to remove dead cells from the skin and to detoxify it.
In order to achieve the best result we recommend PHYTO-GEL EXFOLIANT by YON-KA to refresh your skin as often as necessary, this gel with its smooth and silky foam cleanses and gently exfoliates dead skin cells and rough patches. Delicately polished b the bamboo silica micro-grains and jojoba beads, skin is soft, smooth and velvety.

Prepare your skin for summer with Yon-Ka Phyto-Gel Exfoliant means:

  • Receive a double action polish: exfoliates and cleanses
  • Leave the skin satin-soft
  • Fine, silky lather
  • A better absorption of body care products
  • Prevent ingrown hairs

How to use it

2 to 3 times a week or daily:

  • Apply the gel to damp skin. Insist on the rough areas.
  • Rinse off carefully

On areas like the sole of the feet, elbows:

  • apply the body polish to dried skin. Perform circular movements. Then humidify to make foam and rinse off carefully.

Ingrown hair:

  • To facilitate the waxing, use daily Phyto-Gel Exfoliant a week before.

It can be used purely to relax and tone muscles.,or a deeper remedial version can be used for more painful areas, often on the back or shoulders. It may also be used to treat muscular and soft tissue injuries, back pain, tiredness and fatigue, insomnia, headaches, stress, tension and circulation.

holistic reflexology

Holistic Reflexology

Holistic Reflexology

Reflexology is a specialised foot massage treating the whole person by using the feet (or the hands) as “map” to all the organs and systems of the body. Reflexology is a good-all round therapy and is also excellent for diagnosing imbalances and is especially appropriate for reducing stress levels. This type of treatment is also suitable for all age groups. Reflexology uses pressure points on the feet and hands, which relate to different parts or organs to stimulate the bodies own healing system. It can help the communication lines to stay open and the body, mind and emotions to stay healthy and works well for most conditions.

It has been demonstrated that the reflexology has impressive results when used to aid pregnancy and childbirth. Other benefits of this holistic massage is its usefulness in dealing with the problem of congestion in various parts of the body. When an area of the foot is sensitive or sore to the touch, it indicates an energy blockage in the part of the body it refers to. Due to the 7000 nerve endings in the feet, the holistic reflexology helps to release trapped nervous energy in the feet. Toxins are removed and homeostasis (a balanced state in the body) is restores, thus helping the body to heal itself and providing much needed energy, through improved circulation.

If you would like to receive a holistic reflexology massage you can have a look at our services and make an appointment with one of our professional masseur.

 

neck pain self help

Neck Pain Self-Help Treatments

Neck Pain Self-Help Treatments

Neck pain is a common compliant. Most neck pain is caused by a simple muscular strain or tension. It can sometimes become persistent but it is possible to prevent this with some self-help treatments. The most common symptoms of problems in the neck are pain and stiffness. The majority of neck pain is associated with overuse or poor posture from doing daily activities such as driving or sitting at a computer for long periods of time.

The following are some simple things that you can do which may help to ease your neck pain:

  1. Alternate heat and cold pads. Reduce inflammation by applying cold, such as an ice pack or ice wrapped in a towel for up to 20 minutes several times a day. Relax the muscles by taking a warm shower or applying a heat pad to the painful area.
  2. Rest. Lie down from time to time during the day to give your neck a rest from holding up your head.
  3. Gentle stretching. Gently move your neck to one side and hold it for 10 seconds. Stretch your neck in as many directions as your pain allows. This may help to alleviate some pain.
  4. Avoid sleeping on your stomach. This position puts stress on our neck. Choose a pillow that supports the natural curve of your neck.

Some simple changes in your daily routine may also help, such as:

  1. Adjust your desk, chair and computer so the monitor is at eye level.
  2. Avoid tucking the phone between your ear and shoulder when you talk.

We hope that these few advises can be helpful to relief your neck pain and you can feel better. In case you would like to relax and receive a holistic massage from our professional operators, you can contact us or call at +356 27040100 to make an appointment.

anti-cellulite massage

Anti-Cellulite Massage

Anti-Cellulite Massage

This is a do-it-yourself massage, since few of us willingly expose our cellulite once we have a good store of it! For best results, do the anti-cellulite massage morning and night using lots of oil or favourite cream. Always do all strokes in an upwards direction, towards the heart, to help get the blood flowing and stop body toxin building up.

If you wish to be helped from a professional have a look at our services for slimming & body treatments

Anti-cellulite massage done sitting

  1. Sit comfortably bending the knee of the leg you are working on. Start with the right leg and stoke firmly up the thigh from knee to hip, with one hand following the other in flowing motion. Do the entire thigh – inner, outer, front and back.
  2. Knead the thigh all over, pinching and squeezing flesh between the thumbs and fingers of both hands. Again, start from above the knee and work in an upwards direction to the top of the thigh. The hands should work together, with one pointing down and the outer thigh as knuckling can hurt.
  3. Bend your fingers stiffly at the first joint and firmly drag your hands from the knee up the thigh. The hands should work together, with one pointing down and the other upwards.
  4. Make your hands into loose, relaxed fists and use them to pummel all over the rhigh by tapping down and bouncing up quickly and lightly. Use the flat part of your fists from the first joint to the fingertips, so your hands are hitting palm down, one after the other.

Anti-cellulite massage done standing

  1.  Stand up while doing steps five to eight. Place your right hand, palm down, on your right buttock and make large, firm, flowing circles keeping your hand flat. Start on the hip and move clockwise down to the thigh and back the cheek of the buttock to the start.
  2. Standing and using the same hand, knead the right buttock muscle, using your thumb and fingers in a pinching squeezing movement. Begin where the thigh meets the curve of the buttock and work upwards to the hip, wherever there is loose flesh. Try to make firm, fast movements.
  3. Make your right hand into a loose, relaxed first and use it to pummel all over the right buttock by tapping down and bouncing up quickly and lightly. Use the flat part of your fist from the first joint to the fingertips, so that your hand is hitting palm down, and work in an upwards direction.
  4. Finish off with long, smooth, deep strokes, using one after the other, from mid-thigh up over the buttock to the hip. Use the flat of your hand, in a friction rub, moving the land up and down in short, fast sawing movements. Now repeat all steps on the left side.

Holistic Massages

Holistic Massages – Wellness for the body & mind

A full body holistic massage is a great way to love ourselves, especially when we need to switch off, relax or just feel good. In this article we will explore/share what is a holistic massage? What are the benefits from this type of massages?

What is a Holistic Massage?

A holistic massage is a massage technique that involves not only the body, but also the spirit, emotions and energies of the whole body.

It is, by definition, a treatment that considers the person as a whole, taking into consideration the bio-energetic and anatomical characteristics.

It combines different massage techniques, acting on the energy meridians and sometimes combining other natural therapies.

Benefits from a Holistic massage

Holistic massages can have two main benefits:

  1. Decongestant – toxins are disposed of, purifying the body
  2. Stimulating function – to tone the muscles

The holistic massage helps to relax contracted muscles and improve circulation as well as the kneipp path, nerve bundles and joint mobility.

This increases the flow of the body and can alleviate various disorders such as insomnia, back pain and arthritis.

At a deeper level, it can help to release negative emotions stored within the body tissues, changing and balancing the energy of the person treated.

Not only physical wellness

Holistic massages involves the physical, emotional and mental levels of each individual; the term “holistic” in fact comes from the Greek and means “whole” and refers to all aspects of a person.

The practitioner’s ability also lies in varying the pressure of the massage, the directions and the speed according to the response received from the client’s body.

In fact, at the moment of touch, each body sends different physiological responses, involving sensory and nervous receptors.

The How of a Holistic massage

The therapist customise the massage according to the needs of the client and stimulates communication between body & mind with physical contact, to eliminate energy and muscle blocks.

It awakens the energy of a person, dissolving tensions through tactile stimulation throughout the body, considering each person with their own set of emotions, rationality and energies similar to a meditation.

Holistic Massages at Souls Solutions Holistic Spa

The first step is a consultation between client and therapist. Client needs/concerns are assessed and the therapist determines the most effective way to untie knots and tensions that are often directly related to the psychological aspect of the person.

The patient can lie down and receive the massage, which begins with the manipulation; relaxation and softening of the muscles.

The second phase aims at re-balancing energy, obtained through acupressure and activation of the energy meridians, as well as the removal of any stagnation caused by imbalances in the internal organs.

This phase should immediately bring relief and a sense of well-being to the mind.

Nice, right? We believe that now it should be the time to get a real holistic massage. At Soul Solutions you can find the right one! Have a look at our Holistic Massages and Special Packages.
