Steve's Classic Heated Back, Neck, Spine & Shoulder Massage
Man on the Couch's unique signature Heated Back, Neck, Spine and Shoulder Massage is designed in a holistic and individual way by Steve to loosen up your muscles, give you flexibility, reduce headaches and ease back. neck, spine and shoulder pain.
Steve attacks the muscles around the back, neck, spine and shoulders with massage and stretches from many angles - so you are sat on a chair, lying on your front, and also lying on your back. I work from both sides of the body and behind the head, applying a range of stretches and techniques from Indian Head Massage, acupressure, remedial and sports massage training, plus the use of 6 different heated tools, to bring it altogether into a super treatment using hands, forearms, elbows, heated jade wavestones, heated basalt stones, gua sha, warmed bamboo canes, a theragun and heated cupping. Clients feel the benefits for many days or weeks. If you have a particular problem point - for example, a neck stiffness - then just ask and I will gladly concentrate on that for you.
30 minutes of treatment allows just over 5 minutes on each body area (back, neck, spine, and shoulders) and is recommended for 1 therapeutic tool in addition to the hands, forearms and elbows - such as hot stones.
45 minutes allows 10 minutes on each body area and is recommended for 2 therapeutic tools, such as cupping and the theragun.
1 hour of treatment allows 15 minutes on each body area and is recommended for 3-4 therapeutic tools - such as heated jade and basalt stones, gua sha, and bamboo canes.
1 hour 30 minutes gives over 20 minutes on each body area, and all 6 therapeutic tools can be used.
Add on a 20 minute essential oil salt crystal or grain back scrub to improve the nourishment and silkiness of the skin due to its exfoliating effect helping pores remove toxins and absorption of the massage oil.
