Massage Therapist are the worst massage clients

Massage therapists are renowned for being the worst people for looking after their own bodies. Being a massage therapist is a physically demanding job, often with 8 hours or more standing each day and applying pressure onto and into the muscles of their clients. Although most massage therapists know about posture and the importance of using a strong position to create the massage pressure from their whole bodies rather than just their hands or arms, […]

Beard Oil Recipes

If you walk down any metropolitan high street you will no doubt notice an increasing number of twenty-something men with longer than usual beards and facial hair. This increasingly common trend is sweeping towns and cities across the country. The problem that arises from this is how to take care of and condition the beards and moustaches. Some beard oil recipes worth trying are a blend of carrier oils such as Jojoba, Argan, Coconut or […]

Deep Tissue Massage – Why don’t we list it in our clinic massage therapies.

We are sometimes asked for a  deep-tissue massage in our clinic and have to explain why it is not one of the therapies we think need to be listed on our price list. What people don’t know is that for £30 and 4 hours of their time a massage therapist can add the title “deep tissue massage” to their list of qualifications. Sometimes it is a one day or sometimes a 2 day course or unbelievably […]

Therapeutic Massage – the one massage to rule them all

When looking at  a choice of massage therapies offered by some spa’s and clinic’s I often despair that massage will one day stop being a skilled practice by professionals and become a service offered in MacDonalds. “So its a Bigmac and fries and a back-shoulder-stress-buster-massage, and would you like you to supersize that with a coke and a foot massage?”. The menu approach to choosing a massage based on packaged options may be the result […]

Remedial, Sports, Deep Tissue, Swedish, Advanced, Medical – Why are there dozens of names for a massage treatment using oil?

Massage treatment continues to grow as a popular therapy to maintain the health of bodies, to treat injuries or to mange excessive stress and tension. However there has also been an increase in the different titles for massage treatments and qualifications. There is one simple reason this happens : To sell massage course to massage therapists! Here in Glasgow many of our massage teaching colleges like to have a progression in their courses so they […]

Five ways to make a loose herbal tea

These are the quickest and simplest option –  open the jaws and grab the […]

A Good Night’s Sleep

The science of sleep is often mentioned in the media, with willing victims having their sleep observed or deprived in dedicated sleep clinics. The difficulty for researchers is that sleep is controlled by the brain, and scientists are still trying to understand how the brain works! Sleep is a natural and necessary state which we all need to experience in order for our bodies to function. While asleep, we have reduced consciousness, experience far less […]

Cleanse and Revitalise

Cleanse & Revitalise Finally it feels like winter has left! After a long, dark winter in which we’ve been eating heavier meals to keep warm, and generally doing less exercise than is perhaps good for us, it’s no surprise that we might be feeling a little run down. Now, as the days are longer and milder, and fresh fruit and veg is more available, is the time to think about preparing for a detox; not […]

Tinnitus: Scotland’s problem buzz

Many of us will have experienced a temporary buzzing or ringing in the years after a night out at a noisy nightclub or concert, particularly if you’ve found yourself close to the speakers.  For generations of teenagers, battle-hardened metallers and punks and hedonistic clubbers, how much noise a person can tolerate was often viewed as some sort of masochistic test of prowess.   Hopefully such attitudes are disappearing, however.  Take a look around next time you […]
