Massage

Massage is a system of healing involving various methods of manipulating muscles, and other soft tissues of the body. It's purpose is to release muscle spasms, break down scar tissue, increase blood flow and lymphatic drainage, reduce inflammation, while at the same time producing a sense of peace and calm and relaxation.  There are various forme of massage offered including, General Relaxation, Remedial and Therapeutic.

General Relaxation massage helps to relax the body, release stress, improve circulation of both blood and lymphatic fluid.  It works to promote a sense feeling of inner peace and wellbeing.

Remedial & Therapeutic are stronger deeper forms of massage therapy.

  • Remedial Massage works more generally and is more an all-over type of treatment, which aims to help to reduce muscle spasms, break down scar tissue, increase blood flow and lymphatic drainage, reduce inflammation etc. throughout the body.  It is most beneficial as an on-going maintenance program.  This helps in a number of ways, but especially in a sense of greater wellbeing, more flexibility and mobility,  reduced joint and muscular pain, and a general increase in energy levels.

  • Therapeutic Massage is more focused on a the treatment of injuries, specific problem and/or conditions, or a particular problem area.  It's main aim is to restore proper function and mobility to areas that have been injured, or are particularly stressed etc., or weakened (due to reduced mobility, reduced blood or nerve supply etc.).  A Therapeutic Massage session usually focuses on the particular area that is causing the problem, other related areas may also be treated, but the main focus is on the presenting injury/problem.
