Types of massages available:
Deep Tissue and Sports
Sports massage therapy can help alleviate the stress and tension that builds up in the body’s soft tissues during and after physical activity. Due to overexertion and overuse, minor injuries can occur. A build-up of bi-products in the muscles results in tension, and irritated muscles fibres. A targeted sports massage can break down these builds-ups quickly and effectively, reducing pain and tension and restoring range of motion. Additionally, it can help prevent the niggling injuries that often hinder performance and achievement. Whether you’re participating in intense sporting activities such as marathons, a keen gym bunny or an infrequent Zumba fan, sports massage can help prevent injury and keep your muscles in optimum condition.
Sports and deep tissue massage are not just for the sports fan, anyone can benefit. If you have a physically demanding job or suffer from postural problems, the principles are the same; alleviating stresses and strains, improving flexibility, and restoring mobility to injured muscles can all be achieved by the treatment. The application of sports and deep tissue massage can be deeper and more intense.
Remedial and Classic
Remedial massage is a treatment that aids the elimination of muscle tension, stiffness and blockages through various stroking techniques. It treats different problem areas of the body and helps to reduce stress and tension. This method can be used in combination with Aromatherapy. Essential oils benefit the individual by increasing psychological and physical wellbeing.
Pregnancy massage like other techniques has the aim of relaxing the body, targets tensed, sore muscles, and improves circulation. Each session is tailored to the needs of the pregnant woman and her stage of pregnancy.
