Therapeutic Massage

What are the benefits of Therapeutic Massage?

A therapeutic or holistic massage has many physical and psychological benefits. By relieving muscle pain, improving joint flexibility and relaxing the nervous system you will, in turn, benefit from better sleep, a more positive outlook and decreased stress levels.

Your massage will be luxurious and pampering as well as soothing, de-stressing, stimulating and comforting. Classic Swedish massage techniques are used and I only use excellent quality oils and aromatherapy products.

What are your goals?

Massage can help with many problems: deeper techniques are used for very tired, overused muscles; drainage techniques are used to stimulate the lymphatic system; we can work on postural muscles that are over worked or we can make it our aim to relax the nervous system to allow the body to relax fully.

Massage for Depression

Massage is not a cure for depression, there is no cure that we know of. But we do know that massage, for some sufferers, can bring about a much more positive frame of mind and help the sufferer to cope.

Pelvic Mobilisation

Misalignment of the pelvis can contribute to lower back pain (LBP) and knee pain as well as upper back and neck pain. This is not a traditional massage treatment, although it may still involve some massage over a smaller area. Please wear loose fitting shorts that will allow for stretching and hip mobilisation.

Stress Management

A modern life is never far, it seems, from a stress-induced tipping point. The demands placed on us by work, family, friends and our environment can all combine to push us to our limits.

Myofascial Pain Syndrome

A commonly encountered problem in the field of massage is chronic bodily pain, medically known as myofascial pain syndrome. This pain syndrome is caused by muscle trigger points, which are like small and ongoing cramps in the muscle, which are painful and lead to constrictions in the surrounding tissues. Often this leads to a loss of range of motion and referred or localised pain.
