Natural Remedies at The London College of Massage

When it comes to stress relief, a deep-tissue massage is up there in my top 5 remedies and when The London College of Massage in Holborn asked if I was available for a test run of one of their new massage balms by Songbird Naturals, there’s no way I was going to say no!

Last month, the college, which is part-owned by my good friend Mark Salnicki, arranged for Jarek Zybowski one of their highly-skilled massage practitioners who specialises in deep-tissue / sports massage, to use one of the balms during my visit.

Jarek was excellent, he knew exactly what he was doing, what needed to be done, and was a complete professional.  I was very impressed with his knowledge of anatomy and intricacies when working the muscles.  He found every knot in my back straightaway and smoothed them out using the balm with ease.

The  Songbird Naturals Woman’s Blend balm was used throughout my treatment, which consists of top quality, all natural ingredients including, Beeswax, Olive Oil, Almond Oil and a blend of balancing essential oils (Geranium, Lavender, Frankincense & Bergamot).  The balm smelt amazing – a little citrusy and very uplifting. It really enhanced the whole massage experience, especially since it wasn’t too greasy – perfect for deep-tissue work that requires deeper, slower and more controlled strokes.

Following my massage, not only had all my aches and pains disappeared, but my skin felt incredibly soft too!  I’ll definitely be requesting the balm the next time I stop by!
