PUT YOUR BODY
IN GOOD HANDS
Welcome to Seatoun Massage
My name is Martina Alemagna and I work as a Massage Therapist. I run my own practice based in Seatoun, Wellington. I specialise in a wide variety of treatments, from relaxation massage, hot stone massage, deep tissue and more.
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything."
For me it all began when my son was born. He was born with heavy atopic eczema and the doctors tried to prescribe steroids, which I did not agree with. Therefore I choose to seek an alternative medicine and luckily I found a very good homeopath who helped me to start a plan. So I became more aware of natural healing and I focused more on our body talk. This is where my research started and during this time one of my best friends was studying therapeutic massage and she slowly introduced me to it as well. My friend practiced the therapy massage on me and after some time I wanted to learn too.
I started to do some massages on my family members and friends. I felt that they enjoyed it and me as well, which always boosted my energy.
When I had the opportunity to study at the Wellington School of Massage Therapy I was very excited. I have finally achieved my goals and extended my knowledge. I am convinced of the importance of massage, of the healing touch I give to other people and I am also aware of the importance of my own feelings and psychological condition. When I take care of me first, I am then able to bring that same level of care to others. I can massage firmly when needed, but what I do is feel each muscle and work with it accordingly. What I try to do is massage firmly but gently so that the muscle can actually relax.
Do you suffer from Neck & shoulder pain, lower back tension, are you stressed out?
Massage is one of the earliest therapeutic practices for the relief of pain and the restoration of healthy body functions. With everyone leading such busy lives, preventative health is becoming more important as we realise the health dangers of our environment, such as stress, fatigue, long working hours, pollution. Years of research and clinical studies prove that massage therapy helps with more than relaxation. The medicinal benefits of therapeutic massage can have a positive, lasting impact on your health and lifestyle.
It is essential to find time to relax and unwind away from the pressures of everyday life, to help the immune system function at it is best, to restore balance, feel good and enjoy better health.
