How can our Massage Therapist help you to improve your wellbeing?
Our Therapists have years of experience in providing variety of massage therapies as detailed below.
|Remedial||Used to treat damaged or painful muscles, tendons, ligaments or connective tissues. Massage aids the body's healing and helps to restore function.|
|Sports / Stretching||Developed to help athletes in training, sports massage increases flexibility and prevents injuries. It is also used after an injury or strain.|
|Deep Tissue||Slow strokes are used to put pressure on muscles or tendons deep under the skin. This helps with specific trouble spots such as muscle injuries or back sprains.|
|Trigger Point||Designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. It releases constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain.|
|Shiatsu / Acupressure Point||Pressure is applied with the fingers, thumbs or knuckles to specific parts of the body called Acupressure Points. This therapeutic technique uses a combination of deep tissue and relaxation massage.|
|Cupping||Special cups made of glass, bamboo, earthenware or silicon are used on skin to create suction. This helps with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being.|
What to expect in your massage appointment?

This will result in achieving improvement in mobility, reduced pain, reduced tension or a combination. Let us know any conditions you have or medicines you are taking.
Following initial assessment, you will be asked to lie down on the massage table. You will be covered with a towel during the massage and calm music will be used to help you relax. Please tell our therapist if you feel uncomfortable at any time during the massage.
