Pain relief using Therapeutic Massage
Our bodies are amazingly resilient with their coping mechanisms, but niggling pains can soon become debilitating. Therapeutic massage will detect the hotspot areas in your body that are the root cause of your discomfort.
Specific manipulation and techniques will release knotted muscles, improving mobility and circulation. When used in conjunction with holistic practises such as reflexology or aromatherapy, therapeutic massage is additionally beneficial in helping to release energy, and may relieve emotional, mental and physical fatigue.

When will you need Therapeutic Massage?
Sports, Deep Tissue and Remedial massage
These are deeper massage techniques usually focussed on one particular area or injury rather than the whole body. Treatment helps to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities as well as helping to reduce discomfort and maintain fitness and flexibility. It may also help to:
• Assist the body’s natural repair processes
• Restore normal muscle tone, function and range of movement
• Facilitate recovery after injury
• Limit scar formation in new injuries
• Make older scar tissue more pliable
• Preparation for sports events and recovery afterwards
What will happen at your first appointment
After an assessment, your therapist will advise which massage techniques are best suited to you according to your specific requirements. You will be given information about what to do between treatments and how to maintain improvements gained from the treatment.
