Massage is a form of soft tissue manipulation and is one of the most natural ways to de-stress. With the increasing pressures of modern living making relentless demands on the body, massage has the potential to reduce strain and alleviate pain.
Sports Massage involves deep work on muscles and, along with specialised stretching techniques, can re-balance them and improve flexibility.
Deep Tissue Massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue and is used to release chronic tension which, in turn, can help improve joint movement and restore damaged ligaments and tendons.
Therapeutic Holistic Massage treats the whole person and is useful when treating stress and stress related conditions.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage stimulates the body’s lymphatic system, encouraging the removal of waste, toxins and excess fluid.

Deep Tissue Massage is the most effective therapy for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculo-skeletal system.
People who participate in sport or exercise regularly can benefit from massage to help prevent injuries, which might otherwise be caused by overuse. A constant build-up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments and tendons, as well as the muscles themselves.
Regular treatments can help improve performance, posture and flexibility and decrease stress levels. Choose from shoulder, back, legs or full body.
Your first session should be 60 mins, a proportion of which will be taken up with a consultation.
