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:
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.
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
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.
