Our New Beauty Therapist Photos

Its been a while since we took photos of the three of us who work at Daniel Beauty. So time to rectify that:

This is Daniel - the boss - and owner of Daniel Beauty Ltd. He carries out a lot of the treatments including massage, waxing as well as 3d-Lipo and tattoo removal.

This is Marcio who, as well as practising massage and waxing, also offers facials and threading. He is also a qualified Personal Trainer.

And this is Ricky who runs the office - doing things like accounts, marketing and receptionist duties.

See you soon at Daniel Beauty!

How will having a Massage help me?

If you have never had a massage before and are a bit nervous or a little apprehensive about what to expect, please don't be.

There's Deep Tissue Massage, Swedish Massage, Sports Massage, Shiatsu Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Indian Head Massage  - as well as Thai Massage and Ayurvedic Massage.

There are so many types of massage - so where do you start? How do you know which one is right for you?

In a nutshell all you need to do is relax, trust your therapist and be willing to let go
Swedish massage  stimulates blood flow and lymph drainage which removes toxins and waste as well as helping oxygen to flow more easily.

Massage also has a dramatic effect on the nervous system.

Massage can help engage the parasympathetic system which helps you to restore the balance and calm you down.

This is something that we are often unable to do ourselves with the demands and pressures that everyday life can throw at us. You might find it difficult to switch off when you go to sleep, and end up sending emails to yourself to remind yourself to do things the following day.

Massage can also energise you by helping you sleep better, improve mental alertness, improve mood and ease anxiety.

We can cope with some stress - we need some stress in our lives but not too much! And not for too long

We just need a break from that stress from time to time. And massage is the answer.

Will having a massage help my back pain?

Have you ever gone to you GP suffering from a bad back and then just been sent home and told to rest and take painkillers?

I bet you - or someone you know - has had just that!

By just relaxing at home, you are getting relief from the pain but not actually treating the cause of the pain

                                Good Masseur also required 

Lower back pain is such a common condition - almost always caused by bad posture - but so many people put up with it for years, without realising there is another way.

And that other ways is Massage.

Lower back pain can become a chronic condition which will cause you a lot of unnecessary suffering if you don't get treatment.

                                    Towels are provided

So how can a Massage help your back pain?

Massage can help you to relax

Massage can lengthen your shortened muscles that cause the pain in the lower back,

And you won't need painkillers!

We use the best ever Massage Table

One very interesting thing that we have found when doing market research into the Massage Therapy industry - and testing out our competition both locally and around the world  - is how easily the actual massage table is overlooked.

However good a masseur is, if the table which you are asked to lie on is uncomfortable, old or too narrow, then you will not get the best experience; you won't be able to fully relax 

                                   You can fall asleep here

This particularly applies to Massage Therapists who are mobile (who travel to the clients home or place of work) who have to carry a massage table with them. In this case they have to have the smallest, lightest massage table they can find.

The massage table that we have invested in cost over £1000 - it is the most relaxing luxurious massage table that we could find. It moulds into every part of your body. It moves up and down at the press of a button. There are three sections to the table and f we need to we can just move the head section up or the lower section down.

                           You also need a good therapist

And if necessary, during the winter, we also have an electric blanket. And that combined with heated oil, makes for what we believe is the best massage in Surrey
