Massage at Anglers Paradise
Time for you to relax and enjoy...
Pippa Cherington has joined the team at
Anglers Paradise and is here to ease those aches and pains and add
to the relaxation of your holiday.
What can massage do for
A good massage can relieve aches, niggles and muscular tension before these patterns set in our bodies, change our posture and become pain and is therefore a good preventative treatment. In other instances specialist massage techniques can help a body repair after injury.

Here is a brief explanation of the different types of massage to help you decide which treatment you'd like whether you are seeking relaxation, help with injury/ illness or to improve sports/exercise abilities.
When you book a session you will get a massage based on your needs at that time so each treatment will be different and individually tailored to help prompt your body to a place of ease or health.

What is Tai Chi?
Tai Chi, or Tai Chi Ch'aun to give it it's full name, is movement based on the Chinese philosophy of yin and yang. It is both a meditative practice and a form of self defense.
"This exercise will lead many practitioners to health, happiness, and longevity. The defense is secondary" Grandmaster Chang San-feng
Why try it?
Although Tai Chi has its origins in ancient China, it is relevant for people today. It's slow pace and graceful movement counteracts our busy scheduled lives.
No matter what your age, male or female, you can practice Tai chi and feel its benefits. These usually include a more relaxed body and mind, helping the digestion, blood circulation, freeing joints and improving balance and maintaining health.
Never Rains in Devon...
If the weather is unpleasant we will practice indoors though Tai Chi enthusiasts will try to be outside in all weathers to gain the benefit of natural energy.
There are many schools of Tai Chi and I follow Yang style as practised by Cheng Man Ching. In my teaching I tend to focus on gaining the health aspects with beginners such as posture, and as people gain experience I lead them into the more martial aspects of Tai Chi.
My teaching includes regular classes for people with differing needs so I offer Tai Chi to the able bodied, disabled, those with learning difficulties and long term health conditions. I have been playing with Tai Chi for 17 years, teaching for 11 years, and am a fully insured, register instructor with The Tai Chi Union of Great Britain.

In my practice I've been fortunate to work with a wide variety of clients, both adults and children. Some of whom have come to me because they have a problem or are in pain, stressed or anxious, others just wanted relaxation and pampering.
My experience includes amateur sportsmen & women who are trying to drive their achievements forward including runners, riders, cricketers, cyclists,walkers, fishermen, golfers, tennis and badminton players. I also regularly treat disabled clients (familiar with wheelchairs, stone/urine collection), those with long term health conditions like Multiple Sclerosis and people with learning difficulties (Autism & Aspergers).
