Massage brings many benefits to adults of all abilities and disabilities, including reducing levels of the stress hormone, cortisol in the body. Continued or prolonged stress has a negative impact on body and mind and can cause many conditions which affect health and wellbeing. To name a few;
Memory and concentration impairment
Many of these conditions are also symptoms of Fibromyalgia. In 2014 I was diagnosed with this condition and through educating myself and researching ways to improve my own health, I came across a book called 'The Stress Solution' by Dr Rangan Chattergee. This was an eye opener and for the first time I could see why my health had been affected through prolonged stress.
One technique I used to recover and still use to maintain positive health is massage. The feeling of total relaxation and where you can almost feel tension melt away is almost indescribable. It is from this experience which Listening Touch Therapies has been formed and I wish to bring wellness to every-body!

I provide therapeutic massage in the form of Swedish, Indian massage, and deep tissue massage where appropriate and requested. Massage takes place in your own home and is non invasive. There is no need to undress, just wear loose clothing, sit back and relax! I cover areas within a 20 mile radius of Faringdon, such as Witney, Carterton, Burford, Lechlade, Swindon, Wantage, Abingdon, Oxford, Shrivenham, Watchfield.
