Massage Therapy Treatments

Massage is the manipulation of soft tissues in the body.

Massage techniques are commonly applied with hands, fingers, elbows, forearm or a device.

The purpose of massage is generally for the treatment of body stress or pain.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage is all about relaxing. It focuses on giving the client time to recover from the stresses of daily life. As with any kind of massage, the benefits of a relaxation massage can last for several days after your treatment.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is designed to prevent and relieve injuries and conditions that are associated with exercise. It can often be quite strenuous and is meant to relieve and reduce the stress and tension that can build up within the body’s soft tissues while exercising. It can be carried out before, during, or after playing sport or exercising and uses techniques that are designed to increase endurance and performance, to minimise the chances of injury and, if there is an injury, to reduce the recovery time.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained a non-recent injury.
