What is Holistic Massage Therapy?

Holistic massage is a popular ancient method of pain and stress relief that clears the lymphatic drainage system and releases toxins from the body. It’s a very effective form of massage that boasts a plethora of health and wellness benefits. 

Maybe you’ve tried every massage treatment out there, but nothing has got to the root cause of your problems?

‘Holistic means ‘whole’, therefore this kind of massage treatment is designed to treat the spiritual and emotional well-being of the client too. Performed by a professional massage therapist, a holistic massage is great for establishing the cause of your health problem, as well as tackling symptoms.

What to expect from a Holistic Massage?


As Holistic Massage Therapy looks at you as a whole, your massage therapist will look at everything, covering your lifestyle, medical history, what you want to achieve from the therapy and more. 

After a detailed consultation, a treatment plan to suit your individual needs will be agreed– whether that’s to treat an injury, work on something deeper like anxiety, stress or depression, or just recover from everyday life.  

From the plan you’ll see whether your treatment is in the form of massage and body-work, Reiki, Body-Mind coaching or a combination of all of these.

You will embark on a tailored holistic healthcare programme so that you can take empowered action to meet your needs.

“I’ve seen many osteopaths, chiropractors and physios in my lifetime, and know good from bad. So I was delighted to discover how good Gerry is. Very professional and very knowledgeable, he sorted my extreme shoulder pain in one session. I had been taking painkillers for 4 days to cope with the pain, and I’ve not needed any since. He also found various other niggles in my back that I’d had so long I’d just got used to them or forgotten, and he got to work on those too. I left feeling as light as a feather. Can’t recommend enough.” – Neil
