What is Massage Therapy?
There are numerous types of massage therapy; in all of them, therapists press, rub, and manipulate the surface and deeper layers of muscle and other soft tissues of the body, often using pressure and movement variations.
Massage therapists mainly use their hands and fingers, though can use their forearms, elbows, or even feet. Usually, the aim is to relax the soft tissues, increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the areas massaged, warm them and if the client is feeling pain, to reduce or eliminate it. Massage therapy also assists in the healing process and encourages relaxation and well-being.
Our massage therapists are very experienced and have many clients who have been loyal to them for years. They will spend a short time before each treatment to ask you about yourself and your needs so that they can give you a personalised treatment session. They offer many types of massage and will choose the one most appropriate for your specific requirements.
Massage styles offered include:
Indian Head Massage – treats shoulders, neck, face and scalp to relieve stress.
Sports massage – to treat and prevent sport and non-sport injuries.
Holistic massage – the ultimate indulgence to aid relaxation and relieve stress.
Reflexology – stimulates reflex points in the feet to aid the body’s healing process.
Bowen Technique – uses a number of sessions of gentle rolling motions along the muscles and tendons with pauses between each of the sessions to allow the body to “reset” itself.
Hyperton-X kinesiology – relieves pain and stress by identifying, assessing and releasing extreme muscle benefiting overall well-being, balance and stimulating the body’s natural processes for healing and repair.
