Cardiff Anxiety Treatments
Massage & Reflexology for Anxiety in Cardiff
We offer tailor made massage treatments for anxiety and stress to accommodate for particular needs.
This special range of anxiety massage treatments is suitable for people of all ages and physical conditions.
Aromatherapy essential oils may be blended to ease the effects of your particular anxiety or panic attack.
Be it a medicated anxiety or non medicated panic attack. The Royal College of Psychiatrists have recommended massage and reflexology as tools to ease the feeling of anxiety, stress and the onset of panic attacks in Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD). There is strong evidence to show the effective use of reflexology for people suffering with anxiety. There is further clinical evidence to support the use of Aromatherapy for easing anxiety and the stress related to panic attacks. Clinical evidence shows Shiatsu eases stress, anxiety and respiratory conditions in people with chronic panic attacks and anxiety.
CNHC Registered and fully recognised by most insurance companies
The CNHC is a government sponsored registration body for complementary healthcare practitioners.
The Department of Health advises all GPs to direct patients seeking Masaage Therapy or Reflexology to seek out only CNHC (the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council) registered therapists.
Shorter versions of the anxiety massage treatment may be performed without oil, over your clothing.
When performed in this way, the anxiety massage routine may be quite deep and invigurating, if needed.
For longer sessions, our panic attacks & anxiety massage uses a highly specialised blend of Aromatherapy essential oils that will be tailor made to suit your personal stress needs, especially PTSD or depression (as required).
Anxiety massage and reflexcology also lends itself really well to the inclusion of Hot and Cold Stones therapy, as these basalt, marble and granite stones are highly effective in relaxing stressed muscles and calming the central nervous system, to ease panic attacks.
Anxiety and panic attack treatments are recommended at any time of the year, as the anxiety and stress massage routine actually promotes a sense of refreshing harmony and inner calm to elleviate panic attacks.
Anxiety massage and reflexology testimonials:
"Reflexology for perfect sleep. Do yourself a kindness and visit Marshall Massage when in Cardiff. I have often needed to attend many specialist clinics for my various ailments. Without doubt, Marshall combines a wonderful array of knowledge with a genuine caring touch. After three reflexology sessions, my insomnia and panic attacks are radically reduced and I feel full of vital life energy. I only wish I found this massage clinic many years ago, as it would have saved me a lot of money. A true gem."

"My wife and I have been visiting City Marshall for some years. Philip Marshall is an outstanding professional with a depth of knowledge and understanding. Very attentive and calm always affording dignity and respect. I have recommended City Marshall to my patients and they have all found the service professional and energising as well as the intervention being relaxing."

With his expert care and professional manner, Philip seamlessly blends sports massage, Shiatsu and other complementary therapies, including dietary advice. His attunement with his clients' needs is second to none and his gentle and intuitive composure makes you feel relaxed and in extremely capable hands. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He has helped me with anxiety, IBS, a trapped nerve and all manner of other discomforts."

"I would highly recommend Philip based on my excellent experience. I'm particularly impressed by how much information he gathers in order to really tailor the treatment to the individual. Most massage places I've been have felt quite generic and rushed where here is someone who offers a wealth of knowledge and obviously likes seeing positive results in his clients. Every massage/session has been very relaxing, informative and I've come away with obvious benefits. Excellent treatments."

"I booked massages for myself and my partner with Philip and we both greatly enjoyed the experience. Philip built in the time to get to know me and understand what I wanted, while recommending the best massage for me. I felt that Philip put a lot of effort into this which results in a very personalised service that best benefitted me. Philip took time to explain everything to me and check I was comfortable with the different things he used. The massage itself was fantastic. I asked for a relaxation focused massage as I had been going through a very stressful time, but with emphasis on my back and shoulder which had been causing me pain. Philip mixed oils together to best benefit my body which smelled lovely and added to the relaxed atmosphere with the gentle music too. I felt relaxed and invigorated at the same time afterwards, and my back was really improved for several weeks. I also found I slept better after the massage, with my body able to properly relax. Philip used towels senstively to ensure I felt comfortable, and the bed used for the massage was comfortable too. I will certainly be returning. Overall I felt this massage gave good value for money, the session was full and personalised. My partner had a similarly excellent experience, with Philip recognising the tension and stress in his head and paying particular attention to this part of his body, which apparently made him feel much better afterwards. Overall, Philip was very therapeutic in his approach, and the experience was soothing, relaxing and contiued to benefit us for several weeks. We are looking forward to returning soon."

"Philip helped me to release a complex childhood trauma that I had been struggling with all of my life. Philip is a gifted professional with exceptional healing abilities. I have the highest regard for the work he does and his authenticity."

"Professional, warm, knowledgable and really helpful. Philip certainly knows his stuff and helped me with constant problems with my digestion and low immune system. Very generous with his time, advice, offers and flexible in appointments. I've moved away now and already missing the sessions.
Definitely recommend a visit. Not cheap but worth the money."

"Very relaxing. I had treatments to support me through my IVF cycle (acupressure and reflexology) which were extremely relaxing and helped me cope with the stress and anxiety. Phillip is very knowledgeable and I would recommend him to anyone"

"I have had four aromatherapy massages with Phillip for muscular tension and anxiety. He is a lovely, understanding person, that takes time to understand what you need. My muscular tension is definitely improving and I would recommend Phillip to anyone with muscular tension, sports injuries or just a general massage. I also received useful advise on nutrition and well being".
"I was suffering with stress during the first trimester of my pregnancy, and was given a session with City Marshall as a gift from my husband. I didn't know what to expect, but was calmed by the consultation. After discussiong my symptoms, Philip was able to combine treatments to suit my needs. He was gentle and assured me that he would not go near my abdominal area. I had a mixture of Reiki, Shiatsu and Reflexology and can honestly say that it was such a relaxing and calming hour. The feeling stayed with me all day and I can't wait to return to City Marshall."

"City Marshall is run by Phil who has wide expertise in all kinds of massage and different reasons for aches and pains! I regularly visit every few weeks as the treatments leave me feeling 100 times better and help to tackle my sporting complaints as well as the stress of every day life. I often contact Phil at short notice due to work and he always does his best to fit me in around what suits my circumstances. I really feel his sessions are great value for money and great to keep up your wellbeing or perfect as a present for a friend. Would highy recommend to others"
Ruth Campbell Cardiff University staff 5 March 2013
I suffer from constant daily back and hip pain due to osteoarthritis.
And I didnt realise just after the treatment that I was no longer in pain.... This wonderful reprieve lasted approximately 3 weeks. I am so impressed that I have recommended him to family/ friends / work colleagues, and have asked family to not buy presents for Christmas for me, but to able me to attend this exceptional method of pain relief without popping pills."

"My daughter booked a massage with Philip for my birthday and he was brilliant! It was very soothing and the oils that he mixed up just for me smelled beautiful. The staff were lovely and the atmosphere very relaxing, despite being in the middle of Cardiff! Philip was very caring and gentle, yet really worked on some of my trouble spots and I felt the benefit of that for a good week after. I'd book to go again - and I'll return the favour to my daughter and book her in for her Christmas present!! Thank you Philip!"
