What types of massage therapy do we use in the practice and what would suit you?

Sports Massage

Sports massage has physical and psychological benefits that can help everyone from those who undertake leisure activities to those who are performance athletes. It helps to reduce muscle soreness, boost performance, and aids flexibility. It also reduces DOMS (Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness) as part of an intensive training regime.

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is a basic relaxing full body massage which may include a variety of massage flowing strokes with other techniques such as such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve circulation. As your body becomes relaxed pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscular tension.

Connective Tissue Massage

Connective tissue massage is not dissimilar to a Swedish massage but the pressure is firm as the therapist treats the deeper layers of the tissue to reduce tightening, or shortening of the connective tissue sheath.
