Ouch – Let’s talk Pain…
Sadly, there’s no getting away from it…. We’re all only human and as such from time to time we will all experience some kind of Pain within our body somewhere…. thankfully for the most it can be temporary and short lived – perhaps we have slept in the wrong way, we are run down and putting our body’s under too much stress and tension, we’ve tripped or fallen and are feeling a wee bit sore….it goes away after a good night’s sleep or popping a couple of good old self medicated pain killers…
But what about when it doesn’t behave and go away as quickly as it came…?
Rub it better…
Its the age old saying right back to when we were children, if you have “an aoweee” or a sore spot on your body you naturally go to put your hand on it to soothe and comfort it and as our mothers would say to us “rub it better”….
Well, there’s method in their madness to a certain extent as that rubbing action stimulates the blood circulation from under the skin and helps to bring new fresh nutrients to the area in question. In doing this it also helps to boost the lymphatic system and encourage toxins to leave the body….and so in a sense we are going to the world of massage…
Massage for Pain Relief and Structural Relief
How many of you just ignore that aching back, stiff shoulder, constant sore neck etc etc???
I know… there’s always something else that needs paying for?
Or you simply don’t have the time?
Ahhhh It will probably pass in a day or two…
FACT – There are 7 stages of injury and generally we only start to feel pain at about stage 4 to 5 – this being the case the injury or problem with what ever muscle, tissue, nervous system has well and truly had a chance to embed in by the time we start to become physically aware of it…
FACT – Muscles and cells hold memories and an untreated injury will start to become the new norm if it goes without being treated therefore, the sooner that you can get them out of the habit cycle the better…
If you were experiencing problems breathing or had a physical outbreak of a bad rash or spots you wouldn’t just leave it lie so why live with the pain of a bad back or aching muscles… In reality, when treated by a professional masseuse the majority of these conditions can be virtually alleviated within a matter of a few sessions with many finding huge relief even after a first session….
Pain Management has become one of the most popular treatments amongst our clients with many opting to come to us as an alternative to the chiropractitioner or physio. With the huge array of skills and techniques at Deborah’s disposal she has been able to create the perfect blended treatment sessions tailor made for her clients combining the EMMETT technique, remedial and sports massage and other deep tissue, fascia release techniques to provide the perfect blended balance for her clients symptoms generally boasting noticeable improvement and long lasting relief even after the first session.
EMMETT Muscle Release Treatments – Relax, “Fix” & Restore Sessions ….
On it’s own or why not combine it with Massage or other Alternative Therapies | Prices From £40
The holistic buzz word that is coming out of everyone’s mouths lately is EMMETT… So what is it?
Well…in a nutshell it is a very natural organic body work technique that releases muscles and tensions held within the muscles which can cause pain, immobility and tension within the body…
The best way I would liken it to is like rebooting a mobile phone or a tablet/computer – highly sophisticated pieces of machinery made up of lots of tiny components which rely on each of the other components to work smoothly and effectively without any glitches… (sound familiar to the wonderful human body lol)
Using a combination of gentle switches and light pressure to release specific muscle groups, enabling the client’s body to return to a balanced state. Results can be almost instantaneous even before leaving the clinic most clients notice dramatic changes in flexibility, balance, pain levels, ranges of movement, breathing and other functions depending upon the areas worked. Where appropriate this technique may be incorporated into treatments to enhance results and ease debilitating conditions such as neck & shoulder discomfort, stiffness and discomfort to the hips, knees and back, breathing difficulties, flexibility, balance and stability…
When we release a muscle using this technique we aim for positive improvement but in reality the results can be mind-blowing and life changing so if you are sitting there with that constant ache in your back or restriction in your shoulder/neck or constant ouch factor and heaviness in your legs and knees etc… Why not show your body a little love and care and book in for a session?
Best of all with any EMMETT Treatment we have a built in safety valve… We do assess and communicate with you continuously during your EMMETT Pain Management sessions and if something is not working or for some reason makes the condition feel worse not better we can quite simply “RUB IT OUT”… just like that – total magic – How cool is that?

Massage combined with Cryotherapy |Prices From £49
Cryo-therapy is a safe and natural pain therapy that can be tailor made to your accommodate your needs, and directly combat pain. Cryo-therapy works for pain by eliciting the body’s “fight or flight” response which stimulates the production of endorphins, resulting in the decrease of the body’s perception of symptomatic pain. Cryo-therapy can be used alone or in conjunction with other pain management treatments such as massage ….
Benefits of Cryo-therapy:
- Rapid Reduction in Pain and Inflammation
- Reduces swelling and discomfort
- Can help with conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis & Osteoarthritis
- Can help conditions such as Multipleclerosis and Fibromyalgia
- Helps to provide Pain relief from nerve pain
Can help soothe and mobilise stiff muscles and tissues
Pain Relief for those hard to reach & control Medical conditions…
The anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of cryo-therapy can drastically improve joint disorders such as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. Fibromyalgia is a disease that causes pain in the muscles, ligaments and tendons. Research shows clients report almost instant feelings of well being even following just one treatment. Joints move more fluidly, they feel strong, and full of energy; this initial positive effect may last up to eight hours. The immediate effect of skin cooling and analgesia lasts for five minutes, but the release of endorphins can have a lasting effect, where the pains and signs of inflammation as found in blood tests remain suppressed for weeks.
We within Angel Loving Care have been using this technique over the last few years and seen some incredible results whether being used to aid sports injuries combined with sports/deep tissue massage, helping severe lower back pain to seeing clients with severe medical conditions such as Fibromyalgia get some of the best pain relief they have experienced through a massage treatment…
What our clients have to say….
Deborah’s treatments are outstanding, very professional in every aspect of her work – highly recommended
S Tetsill, Falkirk
Debs is truly remarkable at what she does. Mum hobbled in with a very sore knee which has bothered her for a while, but after some emmet therapy she was able to walk normally again with no discomfort. I had the bug buster ritual, felt absolutely amazing!! Definitely one of my favourite treatments. Cant recommended Deborah at Angel Loving Care highly enough. A true angel!!
Angela Gillies, Edinburgh
I have been getting treatment from Debs for nearly 3 years now, and she always manages to find the right mixture of treatments to ease aching muscles and pains.
Paul Hicks, Lothians

Reflexology and Facial Reflexology | Prices from £55
Reflexology is a holistic therapy, which treats the whole person and not just the “dis ease”. A holistic therapy takes the comprehensive view of the client & recognises that the mind, body and spirit are all part of the living being. Any imbalance within these areas will affect the body and if imbalance continues illness and disease may be the result. By treating the whole person and not just the presenting symptoms the reflexologist can help to rebalance the body as a whole and allow the body’s natural healing powers to be activated.
Reflexologists believe that the body is divided into zones and that the energy of life force flows through these ones. Any imbalance in the zone will affect other parts of the body and by working on the feet (or hands) the imbalances can be manipulated and released and effective energies and balance can be retained.
Common conditions which Reflexology can help include:
- Back Problems
- Blood Pressure
- Bowel Disorders
- Frozen Shoulder
- Gynecological Disorders
- Hay Fever
- Knee Problems
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Muscle Tension
- Neck Problems
- PMS/Hormonal Problems
- Respiratory Problems
- Stress Disorders
- Thyroid Imbalance
Benefits of Reflexology:
Because Reflexology treats the entire body as a whole and not in isolation there are numerous benefits that the treatment endorses, including:
Stress Reduction – When we are stressed our body’s defences break down and we become more susceptible to illness and disease. Reflexology reduces stress by generating deep tranquil relaxation, helping the body balance itself and allowing healing energy to flow.
Improved Circulation – Blood needs to flow freely throughout the body carrying oxygen and nutrients to all the cells and removing the waste products of metabolism and other toxins. By reducing stress and tension, reflexology allows the cardiovascular vessels to conduct the flow of blood naturally and easily.
Stimulated Nerve Function – By stimulating more than 7,000 nerves in the feet, reflexology encourages the opening and clearing of neural pathways. It interrupts pain pathways, reducing pain.
Improved Immune System – Reflexology stimulates the lymphatic system thus reducing risk of infection. It cleanses the body of toxins and impurities and also stimulates the production of endorphins, leading to an improved immune system and sense of well-being.
Rejuvenation Treatment – Reflexology revitalises energy throughout the body by relaxing and opening up energy pathways.
This incredible treatment can be used in combination with Foot Reflexology for enhanced results or in its own right as a stand alone relaxing and very effective treatment for the mind, body and soul….
Combining a combination of accupressure points with Tibetan Medicine principles the philosphy behind the treatment is to treat not just the presenting issue of the client – eg back pain, a sore shoulder, hormonal issues etc but to trace the clients’ history back to the source of the problem. It is believed that it is only be truly tracing the origins of the problem will it ever be truly and long term fixed (or on the road to being fixed)….
Neuropsychological, – and brain diseases
Organ related Symptoms
Muscle pain and tension
A valuable addition to traditional reflexology treatments or a beautifully relaxing treatment carried out on the face- this is a must to be tried…
What our clients have to say….
Thought I might share a journey I took about 15 years ago!
I had been feeling under the weather when I visited Angel Loving Care salon in Broxburn. I was introduced to Debbie King and her staff, after a chat, which lasted about 40 mins., I was so impressed with not only Debbie’s knowledge but also the manner in which she explained everything on offer at the salon.
I continue to visit the salon on a regular basis having had treatments, literally from Head to Toe;
my favourite treatment being reflexology [my first port of call for any niggle or ache] before visiting a doctor. Debbie never ceases to amaze me with her accuracy in working out what is wrong with you. She always says she is not allowed to diagnose but I would say in my experience as a nurse she is more often right than wrong and in her own way like a doctor of touch.
Money and time are precious to everyone, finding someone like Debbie & somewhere like Angel Loving Care ticks all the boxes.
Great prices, Warm and Friendly staff but the icing on the cake must be leaving feeling relaxed, pampered and special……….
