Body & Back Massage
Supporting your health and wellbeing with holistic massage
Massage involves working the soft tissue of the body, to ease day-to-day stresses and muscular tension, and promote relaxation. It helps to increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the treated areas and can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries. Deep tissue uses slow and deep strokes with more direct pressure or friction over the affected area. Neuro-muscular work is where constant pressure is applied to trigger points within the muscle or fascia in order to stretch and release tension in that area.
Back Massage – A popular option, great for relieving tensions in the lower and upper back as well as the neck and shoulders. The massage not only leaves you feeling exceptionally good, but relaxed and invigorated too.
Full Body Massage – A firm, but relaxing treatment relieving all those aches and pains incorporating the legs, feet, arms, hands, abdomen, shoulders, neck, face and scalp.
Swedish Massage can be adapted in terms of pressure, techniques and areas worked according to your needs.
