THERAPEUTIC & SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY
Massage therapy is a manual therapy that concentrates on treating the soft tissues of the body, such as the muscles and ligaments. Massage improves the blood supply to the muscles by stretching and kneading areas of tightness and contraction. Many musculoskeletal problems are stress related and massage can be a very effective way to help the body to balance and heal itself.
WHAT IS THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE?
Our therapeutic treatments are tailor-made to the individual and can combine deep tissue, sports massage and advanced massage techniques such as trigger point therapy, soft tissue release, lymphatic massage and neuromuscular techniques. Working intuitively with slow deep release, it allows the body to relax.
BENEFITS OF MASSAGE

In addition to this, it can relieve tired stiff joints and reduce swelling. It is a safe and non-invasive therapy and is suitable for all ages and conditions. By stimulating the lymphatic system, it can help with chronic skin conditions, which young people often suffer from.
