Holistic and Deep Tissue Massage in Hackney and Islington
My name is Aga and I'm a fully qualified massage therapist and yoga teacher. I offer Holistic and Deep Tissue massage treatments in North-East London.
I practice from two complementary health clinics: The Plane Tree in Bethnal Green and The Healthy Living Centre in Islington. I also offer one-to-one yoga tuition in those locations.
In my massage practice I combine Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage with Trigger Point Therapy (Neuromuscular Therapy), AMMA Fusion, Myofascial Release and Sports Stretching. Whenever appropriate, I use specific Advanced Clinical Massage techniques for treating pain.
I believe in a holistic approach, one which takes into account all aspects of the person - the physical, emotional and energetic one. During the treatment I communicate with the client to make sure the pressure and techniques used are adequate, enjoyable and safe to make the session effective and relaxing at the same time.
Sessions starts with a consultation to ensure an appropriate and safe treatment. The appointment usually lasts one hour, although longer sessions are also possible.
Who can benefit from massage therapy?
Anyone can benefit from a massage therapy. Whether what your need is to take time out to relax, reduce muscle tension and strain associated with stress, overwork or injury, or attain relief from chronic pain, therapeutic massage offers invaluable support in your journey back to health. Because of the physiological and emotional effect the massage therapy has on the body and mind, it can truly facilitate healing.
Holistic and Deep Tissue Massage can be very helpful and assist people suffering with:
As a dedicated yoga practitioner and teacher, I integrate the understanding of the body and body awareness into my body-work. My yoga practice deeply informs and strongly supports my massage practice. I believe it makes it more nourishing, effective and enjoyable for both the client and myself. Whenever possible I offer aftercare and lifestyle advice, which can include suggestions of stretches or yoga postures I believe could be helpful.
Whenever I believe you could benefit from or require other professional support, I can advise other practitioners I work closely with, be it acupuncturists, osteopaths, craniosacral therapists and other health practitioners.
If you wish to make an inquiry or book an appointment, please contact the clinics or myself directly. I look forward to hearing from you.
