Massage

Massage Therapy –

 

Massage has many health benefits. Whether it be Relaxation Massage, Therapeutic Massage, Sports Massage, Remedial Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Baby Massage, Pregnancy Massage – we have all of these covered. So what is the difference?

Types of Massage;

  • Relaxation – A gentle, flowing, kneading type massage aiming to destress the body and reduce muscle fatigue. A light pressure is applied.
  • Therapeutic – Massage techniques applied to a specific injury or area of tightness/tension/fatigue in the body. A medium pressure is applied.
  • Sports – Has a focus more on recovery from training to remove lactic acid buildup, or perhaps focusing on a tight area of the body which needs to be more mobile for an event. May include stretching and mobilising techniques. A medium to deep pressure is applied.
  • Remedial – A thorough massage of the body or larger area eg legs/back. Similar to Relaxation but a deeper pressure is applied
  • Deep Tissue Massage – A variety of massage techniques are used with a deep pressure applied. Can be uncomfortable during a therapy session but the joints, soft tissues and muscles are much more supple and mobile afterwards
  • Baby Massage – Even little people love a massage. We can teach parents how to perform a massage on their baby whether it be for bonding, relief of wind, settling – touch is a powerful thing
  • Pregnancy Massage – Massage throughout pregnancy has many benefits, especially in the later stages when extra movement, pain relief, relaxation and postural assistance is required
