Massage therapy helps to release tight muscles, reduce pain, speed up tissue healing, increase body flexibility and reduce stress.

Massage increases the circulation enabling more oxygen and nutrients into the muscles which reduces muscle fatigue and soreness. Regular massage may help to strengthen the immune system due to an increase in white blood cells. Many people wait until they are already in pain before turning to massage, but why let it get that bad? It is a good idea to take regular massage as a preventative measure. Regular massage maintenance will increase your overall sense of wellbeing and keep your muscles in great condition which will help relieve pain and prevent injury.

Sports massage involves the mobilization of muscles to release tight, shortened muscles and improve circulation within the muscle. This will help injured muscles to heal and prevent further injury. Improved circulation and release of muscle tension puts the muscle in its optimum state in preparation for all sports.Sports massage can be effective for everyone participating in sport/exercise at all levels.
Post event massage can be carried out within a few days of your event. It aids in the removal of metabolic waste, lengthens tight muscles and reduces post exercise muscle soreness.
Deep tissue massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue to release the muscle fibres. It is very effective at relieving pain by releasing these tight muscles, fascia which connects the muscles and trigger points caused by stress, poor posture, muscle imbalance, injury or overuse. It involves firm pressure manipulation, mobilization, release, trigger point work and stretching of these structures. Once these are released muscle imbalances can be corrected and normal movement and correction of posture are easier to achieve. Cross fibre frictions increase healing of ligaments and tendons.
Massage is a great way to relieve the general aches and pains and emotional stress that can accompany pregnancy. It relaxes the mind and body, relieving muscular tension, promotes wellbeing and improves sleep at night. It can also reduce fluid retention and sciatic pain, caused by an accumulation of fluid around the sciatic nerve. Massage can lower high blood pressure, maintain elasticity of the skin and encourage deeper, easier breathing.
Massage can help after the birth too. As well as giving you some precious time to look after yourself, it promotes muscle healing and spinal alignment, important factors in returning your body to its pre-pregnancy state.Your massage practitioner will be trained specifically to work with the changes involved in pregnancy. The treatment will be safe for you and your baby.
This is a system of long strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, percussion, vibration and shaking motions that apply pressure between muscles and bones, rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. Swedish Massage feels good, is relaxing and invigorating.
Aromatherapy is the practice of massage using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. The inhaled aroma from these “essential” oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing.There are a wide number of essential oils available, each with its own healing properties.
