WHAT IS MASSAGE THERAPY?
Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissue, particularly muscles. It promotes suppleness of the muscles, improves circulation, reduces stress levels, alleviates aches and pains and gives a general sense of well-being. It is an effective way to prevent and treat sport injuries, relieve tired stiff joints and reduce swelling.
TREATMENT MAY INCLUDE
- There are several different types of massage techniques such as holistic, sport, lymphatic and the therapist can use a combination of these techniques depending on the client’s condition and needs.
- Massage therapy can be used alone or as a part of rehabilitation treatments such as physiotherapy and osteopathy.
