Fatigue Treatments Cardiff
Massage & Reflexology for fatigue ME & SAD
We offer tailor made massage treatments for fatigue, ME and SAD to accommodate for particular needs.
This special range of fatigue 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 type of ME or SAD fatigue. Be it muscular fatigue or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Mmyalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) as well as post-viral fatigue syndrome (PVFS). All varieties of fatigue combine emotional tiredness as well as physical muscular fatigue tiredness and may lead to depression and anxiety.
There is a large body of clinical evidence to support the use of Aromatherapy for easing fatigue and the anxiety related to fatigue. Headaches, Migraine and Insomnia can also benefit from both reflexology & aromatherapy. Clinical evidence shows Shiatsu eases stress, anxiety and emotional drainage in people with fatigue.
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 fatigue ME & SAD treatment may be performed without oil, over your clothing.
When performed in this way, the fatigue massage routine may be quite deep and invigurating, if needed.
For longer sessions, this fatigue ME or SAD massage uses a highly specialised blend of Aromatherapy essential oils that will be tailor made to suit your personal fatigue needs, especially ME & SAD or anxiety (as required).
Fatigue massage and ME or SAD 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 sore muscles, calming the fatigue mind and alleviating tension or muscular fatigue.
Fatigue massage is recommended at any time of the year, for ME or SAD, as the fatigue massage routine actually promotes a sense of refreshing harmony and inner calm, while alleviating muscular fatigue as well as emotional fatigue.
Fatigue ME and SAD client testimonials:
"Marshall Massage has changed my life in three months. We are celebrating today, as I got the all clear from my GP – thanks chiefly to Philip Marshall and his incredible treatments and diet advice. For five years I was in pain, on anti-depressants, gaining weight rapidly and diagnosed 3 years ago as type 2 diabetic.
My GP told me that type 2 diabetes is an irreversible condition that will gradually get worse. I first saw Philip 3 months ago. YES. Just three months ago, and today I am no longer a diabetic, no longer on anti-depressants and no longer in pain. I am also 25kg lighter and feel like a brand new person. My GP said I am the first type 2 diabetic that he has seen reverse their condition. My celebration tonight will be at the Smoke Huis with a large mixed grill and I will enjoy it thoroughly. I have learnt, thanks to Philip, how to look at food in a totally different way. I now know more about my own body than I ever thought possible – and I feel totally in control. Thank you so much, for giving me my life back. "

"Wonderful massage therapy. I visited City Marshall Massage due to back and neck pain from an illness I have. The morning before my appointment I had extreme pain and discomfort which brought me to tears, conventional meds don't help my condition so I was depending on City Marshall to help me. I was not disappointed, the therapy was perfect, he made me feel comfortable, at ease and knew exactly what I needed. I left the clinic feeling so relaxed and came away with some good advise. The next morning I woke up feeling very well, with no pain and feeling positive. I have taken all the advise given by him and will definitely keep returning for therapy. It is an excellent clinic with a very experienced and talented therapist"

"An enlightening experience. I found Philip, (city marshall) while on the internet looking for somewhere I could get some relief for back pain, that I have had for quite a long time. I have several illnesses one being Multiple Sclerosis, which is the worry of my life, so I contacted Philip and made an appointment. It was the best decision I have made in such a long time. After the first session of shiatsu, my back felt so much better and to my astonishment I was now walking in a straight line. Before this, I was very unbalanced and would keep bumping into people while out. I am now on my third visit and things have improved greatly for my total health. Philip seems to love what he does and puts so much of his energy into each massage it makes you feel replenished. He has provided me with so much information dietary wise and is a very knowledgeable man. After years of popping pills, Philip has shown me that there are other natural ways of helping yourself and I can honestly say I feel so much better for taking his advise. I would recommend everyone to visit him at least once in their lifetime, he is a total gentleman who is brilliant at what he does!!"

"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."

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.

"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."

"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."

"Phil 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 stresses of every day life. 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."
Teresa Lloyd-Cox Cardiff 9 November 2012
"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!"
