Sports Massage Therapy is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is applicable not just to sports people but to anybody wishing to guard against or recover from a soft tissue injury.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue massage looks to get to tension which is located in deeper layers of muscle, helping your body to return to normal function, allowing you to feel more relaxed, have more energy and feel less stressed.
As well as providing time out for the mother to be to relax and recharge her energy, a pregnancy massage can help to ease pain in muscles and joints which are put under increased pressure as the pregnancy progresses. This massage is complemented by a short 20 minute Reflexology session, for even deeper relaxation.
Swedish Massage is a gentle and relaxing type of massage, with the main aim to help you unwind and get rid of the tension which can be brought about by stress and physical activity. It uses long gliding strokes to relax your muscles, relax your mind and reconnect your mind and physical body.
Reflexology is a holistic treatment which is based on the principle that there are areas and specific points on the feet that create a map via our nervous system to correspond to different parts of the body, helping us release tension with a gentle approach.
Remedial massage essentially does what it says on the tin! It is designed to remedy specific areas that are sore, stressed, tense and painful, through the deep massage and manipulation of muscles.
When coming for a Chiropractic treatment, if you are dealing with a lot of muscular tension, it can sometimes be useful to get some of this loosened with a quick massage session before your Chiropractic adjustments. This is a 10 minute massage and is typically enough to get you ready for your Chiropractic session.
