A full body wellness massage has a profound healing nature which amongst many other benefits, also has the ability to encourage and help the mind, body and spirit to harmonise itself back into balance.  It really is a great way to let go and reconnect with yourself.

At Te Manawa Massage Therapy, a full body wellness massage is not a pamper session, nor does it have a set sequence.  It is a style of treatment that is tailored to each individual, and will be a blend of various techniques and focus areas. I would describe it more as a therapeutic experience.

I usually recommend this style of massage for clients that are experiencing one or more of the following:

  • high levels of stress
  • grief and/or trauma
  • depression and/or anxiety
  • feeling low in energy/feeling drained
  • not sleeping well
  • conditions with poor circulation
  • feeling like they just need to relax and unwind
  • busy and hectic lifestyle
  • looking after someone who is sick or terminally ill
  • been receiving a lot of focused deep tissue treatment on an injury or area of chronic pain, and need a treatment to bring awareness back to the whole body
  • those that are well and are looking to maintain optimum health

Quite simply, I’m a big fan of this style of massage when done well.  Although I receive regular deep tissue therapeutic focussed style massages to keep me in good health and working order, quite often I’ll opt for a full body wellness style when I feel the need to rebalance and let go.
