    Just a little reminder that alongside regular massage therapy, Calico also offers specialised pregnancy and post-natal massage too!

    Pregnancy can be a wonderful time but as your body is changing and adjusting, it can also result in aches and pains, tiredness and some stress. My aim is to support you through this exciting and challenging time by helping to relieve physical discomforts while also calming and soothing you.

    Post-natal massage is also offered to help you through the busy, demanding and amazing months after your baby's birth.

  4.  Massage Blog Arm Massage

    Many clients are tempted to ask their therapist to by-pass their arms when giving them a massage and concentrate on their back instead, where most people feel the effects of muscular tension. Though this is tempting, a thorough arm massage can help to release tension elsewhere in the body, particularly the shoulders.

    You can also give your own arms a massage relatively easily. Just click on ‘Read More’ below to find out how and let us know if you give it a try!

  5. Massage Blog Hand Massage

    Continuing our instructions on giving yourself a massage, we now move from the feet to the hands. There is something very comforting about massaging your hands – we hold so much tension in our hands as they are in constant use. Most of our hand movements involve clenching, clasping and holding actions, so it is wonderfully soothing to counteract these by stretching out the hand and fingers.

    This is a really simple set of instructions that you can take 5 minutes out of your day to do. It is a lovely way of taking a break at your desk or doing while you’re on the bus or train on your way home from work. This works with or without cream but if you have some hand cream available, it makes the massage slightly easier.

    Just click on ‘Read More’ below for instructions and do let us know if you give it a try!
