Body Massage

Massage is the manipulation of the body's soft tissues. The purpose of massage is generally for the treatment of body stress or pain. It is a treatment which aims to relax, revive and heal the body. Using manual hands-on movements and manipulation of the soft tissues and muscles in the body, massage therapy works to promote healing and enhance a person’s overall well-being.

There are many forms of massage therapy, each with their own benefits. No longer is massage thought of as a luxury, only available to those who can afford it. Treatment is available for anyone, whether for relaxation purposes, for sports recovery or for pain relief.

Body Massage

Swedish massage

Swedish massage is designed to improve circulation, soothe muscles and improve relaxation. It uses five main techniques: stroking and gliding, kneading, rubbing, tapping, or pounding and vibration. Swedish massage is what you probably consider a ‘typical’ massage.

This form of massage helps to stimulate the skin and nervous system and exercises the ligaments and tendons to keep them supple. The process can be incredibly relaxing and is championed for its ability to reduce both emotional and physical stress.

Deep tissue massage

Deep tissue massage uses slow, firm strokes and pressure to help ease and release tension deep in your muscles. Commonly used to treat chronic aches and pains and tension in the neck, back and shoulders, deep tissue massage is an intense but effective treatment.

Sports massage

Sports massage is designed to help prevent and treat injuries that can occur as a result of exercise. We use a range of deep, intense techniques to restore mobility to an injured muscle. Stretching, compression, toning, and trigger point response techniques similar to acupressure may be used.

Many find sports massage to support them through all stages of training, from injury recovery to prevention of further injury, before and after exercise. Though this treatment is not only for athletes, anyone who partakes in regular physical activity can benefit from a sports massage.
