New Massage Message

The most recent Massage Message contains a good mix of research and stories from clients. This issue concentrates on dry cupping. It also covers studies on massage of emergency staff, covers studies on sleep, myofascial release after breast surgery, Complex Physical Therapy (for lymphoedema) and lipoedema.

I've had persistent pain in my sacrum, coupled with a history of slipped/herniated discs for the past 7 years. I hadn't had a good nights sleep in years due to pain.
I am overjoyed that after a course of 5 massages all the pain has gone and my body is learning to be more and more comfortable each session. I have had a week of unbroken sleep and am deeply grateful for the relief that Regina has facilitated for me.

Regina is of course highly skilled with lots of fantastic massage techniques, but more than that, she is a gifted body worker who brings wisdom, kindness and deep intuition to her clients. My body trusts her, and with that is able to relax into the physical invitations to release old patterns, injuries, and even mindsets.

As a psychotherapist I am more used to addressing symptoms through talk and creativity, but Regina as able to bypass my busy mind with all its theoretical constructs and get straight to the experience, while also holding her own psychological wisdom lightly. My partner is a very skilled massage practitioner, so anyone working with my body has a high bar to reach and Regina vaults over it effortlessly! Highly recommended.

New Massage Message

The most recent Massage Message contains a good mix of research and stories from clients. The most intriguing is a "proof of principle" study, it shows that neuromuscular taping of the back of the neck can reduce blood pressure. Regular massage can also lower your blood pressure. I'd choose taping or massage over medication, as you may guess, I am biased.

"Finding Regina Dengler – a “Lifesaver

As my condition worsened, I realised I really had to get help in the form of a therapist, and I discovered Regina Dengler who was recommended to me by Susanna Priest. Regina is a very experienced and caring therapist and most importantly for me, she was registered with MLDUK, so I knew I was in good hands.

Regina uses the Casley-Smith method of MLD with Deep Oscillation, and she gets really effective results for me; she has literally been a lifesaver. She has given me exercises to complete, skin care advice, information on breathing routines, and helped me to improve my simple lymphatic drainage techniques in order to keep my symptoms in check. I have to admit though, I am not fully compliant!"

Letting you down gently

This is now an option, if not a necessity, at the end of each session. The reason for that is my new, height adjustable massage table. It is as singing and dancing as you can get: head and leg part go up and down, arms pieces go down and obviously it is height adjustable. The latter feature is the reason for my new table, I started to get back ache from leaning over too much during MLD and deep oscillation treatments.

My talented daughter Sonja sewed the new towels, you won’t believe how much the edges fray without the bias binding. Here is a bit of advertising for her: you can commission her for a new coat or blouse sewn from Ikea’s finest or other material. Contact her on 07582 557250.
