Holistic Therapists at The Cloudesley:Manami Cheves
Originally from Tokyo where she worked as a fashion stylist, Manami has been practicing as a complementary therapist for over 10 years, since studying at the Tisserand Institute of Aromatherapy in London. As well as offering a range of massage treatments, Manami is also a reflexologist, who specializes in treatments for preconception and pregnancy.
Manami can provide a range of treatments that include:
Holistic Massage - a massage that uses long, smooth strokes, kneading and other movements focused on muscles using massage oil. This therapy can improve circulation by bringing oxygen and other nutrients to body tissues. It relieves muscle tension and pain, increases flexibility and mobility, and helps clear lactic acid and other waste, which reduces pain and stiffness in muscles and joints.
Aromatherapy Massage ? a recognised holistic practice that combines the benefits of holistic massage with the healing properties of essential oils. This treatment can be used to treat a range of physical and psychological conditions, to invigorate the mind and body, or simply for pure relaxation.
Deep Tissue Massage - a therapy focused on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue, especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks and sore shoulders. It is similar to regular massage therapy but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
Thai Hot Compress Massage - Based on the holistic principles of Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine;a heated muslin parcel of aromatic herbs and spices is pre-heated with steam which is then applied onto the body during the massage, creating a truly heavenly experience. This treatment can alleviate back pain, tendonitis as well as increasing flows of energy.
Reflexology ? a complimentary therapy that works on the reflex points of the hands and feet to aid healing to the whole person, not just existing symptoms. Reflexology aims to treat your mind, body and spirit rather than a diagnosis or set of symptoms and to rebalance the whole of your being.
