Aqua & Flotation Aqua Massage
This unique fully clothed, non-oiled treatment combines relaxation, deep
tissue massage and stretching techniques whilst the body is supported
by cushions filled with warm water.
The tissues are quickly relaxed by the warmth of the water and the
support of the cushion resulting in a very gentle but effective deep tissue
The treatment focuses on the client’s individual needs, working on
reducing muscle tension, developing muscle memory and alignment,
enabling postural correction whilst lowering stress levels and developing
The lighter touch makes this form of massage suitable for wider range of clients and is delivered with the client lying on their back, no need to undress, no oil, no mess, after 10 minutes recovery time you will be ready to get on with your day.
Flotation Aqua Massage
If you have a little more time why not try Flotation massage undressed and oiled using sweet almond oil (or grapeseed) combining the ultimate holistic massage with the deep tissue massage and stretching techniques whilst the body is supported by aqua massage therapy cushions filled with warm water, taking relaxation of mind and body to an even deeper level.
Your Therapist - Gail Finch SAC Dip
Having completed a diploma in both Indian Head Massage and Massage
Therapy, Gail saw Aqua Massage in action in London and, after having
a massage herself, decided she must bring it back to Gloucestershire.
She completed the training course in December 2017 and launched
Aqua Massage in Cirencester in January 2018.
The combination of massage therapies and her Pilates work means that
she can re-align with massage and suggest stretches to allow clients to
take ownership of improving and maintaining a better posture themselves
(in just a few minutes each a week).
Her love of finding the cause of, and a solution to, a problem offers an
exceptional and very personalised service to her clients.
She also offers corporate massage sessions in the workplace, supporting employers and employees and showing them how to relieve stress using massage and relaxation.
Having come into this work from a background of a stressful and pressurised work environment herself, she really appreciates how important the combination of Mind, Body and Balance is but also how difficult it is to fit everything we should into our lives, and is always very realistic about how much “homework” will really happen.
Gail's sense of fun and down-to-earth approach are an important part of her therapies. She becomes part of the client’s journey and one of her greatest pleasures is to regularly receive messages such as “thank you I couldn’t have done it without you”, “thank you for sorting me out again”, “I had the best night’s sleep for months” and “thanks for listening”, “I nearly cancelled this morning so glad I didn’t I’ve just run up the stairs”.
Watching her clients progress and improve despite an occasional set-back is what 3steps4ward is all about.
