Karin's Favourite Sayings

  • Trigger Point Work - Trigger points or trigger sites are described as hyperirritable spots in skeletal muscle that are associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fibres. Trigger point practitioners believe that palpable nodules are tight muscle bands and a common cause of pain.

  • Deep Myofascial Massage - this method works directly on the restricted fascia. The practitioners use knuckle or elbow, or other tools, to slowly sink into the fascia. The pressure, a few kg of force, contacts the restricted fascia, then puts a tension or stretch on the fascia. Fascia is sometimes referred to as deep tissue.

  • Did you know that each essential oil has different healing properties? For example, some calm while others energize. Here are some widely used essential oils and their properties:
    calming – chamomile, lavender, geranium
    uplifting – ylang ylang, clary sage, rose, neroli
    energizing – rosemary
    cleansing – rosemary
    decongesting – eucalyptus, pine, tea tree

  • Did you know that as a holistic treatment, aromatherapy can have a profound effect on physical and psychological well-being? There exists the belief that scent, as the most enduring of our senses, has the power to transform our emotions and heal our bodies.

  • Karin uses pure Aromatherapy oils for your massage. Aromatherapy has been around for some 6000 years and involves the use of pure essential oils (fragrant plant extracts).  In an aromatherapy massage, individual blends are prepared by the practitioner in a base of cold pressed oil and then applied to the patient's skin through a remedial or relaxing massage.
