Massage can help with reducing stress and increasing relaxation, reducing pain and muscle soreness and tension and improving circulation, energy and alertness. Our highly qualified massage therapists offer a range of massage treatments but will tailor each treatment to your specific needs, so may involve a combination of the different types of treatment.
Whether you are training for an event or going through rehab for an injury, a focused sports massage treatment that will target particular strains, injuries, or postural issues may be for you. While slight pain or soreness may occur post treatment, you generally will feel a reduction in pain with an increase of range of motion at the site. Post treatment, you will receive home care advice to get you back to your activities as soon as possible
Regardless of activity level, many people suffer from muscular tension, aches and pain and high stress levels, which remedial massage can help address. This type of massage is a focused, holistic treatment aiming for full body balance and uses a wide range of massage techniques. It generally feels more relaxing but still provides a therapeutic effect. You will receive home care advice that can help with long term effects.
Deep Tissue Massage is a focused treatment on specific parts where the deeper layer of muscle and connective tissue have a high amount of adhesions or stiffness. Typically, the same type of techniques in the above massage types are used, with a greater amount of intention to those deeper levels of the body. “Kick back” pain or soreness can happen the following day with this type of treatment but utilising stretching and heat can reduce this if it does occur.
