MASSAGE

Massage is the kneading and rubbing of muscles and joints with the hands. It is performed to relax you, assist in relieving tension or muscle pain.

There are many different types of massage available. Ensure you request the right type to suit your needs, or a relaxing massage may turn out to be painful and sore.

Swedish Massage: This technique is gentle and suitable for babies right through to the elderly. It incorporates gentle rubbing and kneading of muscles.

Deep Tissue: This massage is used to help damaged muscles heal after injuries. It can be painful as the massage is more forceful and targets deeper layers of muscle.

Sports Massage: Again this is a deeper massage than a Swedish massage, although it incorporates the long strokes and movements that you enjoy in a Swedish massage.

Trigger Point Massage: This is very different to a gentle relaxing massage. Your masseuse will focus in on problematic areas; tight muscle fibers that form after an injury or overuse.

Hot Stone Massage: Incorporates warm stones on the body. Rather than the masseuse using their hands to rub and kneed, they use the warm stones. It is a more gentle massage.

Aromatherapy Massage: The Swedish technique is often used, because of it’s gentle long strokes. However essential oils are used to address your specific needs.

Thai Massage: Don’t expect to lay still in this massage. Your practitioner will maneuver and stretch your body into various postures. Sometimes it feels like you’re having a yoga session without doing the work. You will feel energized rather than relaxed after a Thai Massage

Pregnancy Massage: This is a gentle massage enjoyed by mother and baby. Your practitioner will know how to position you comfortably during your gentle massage. Expect to feel comfortable, relaxed and incorporated throughout your pregnancy will reduce the risk of stretch marks.
