What is Therapeutic massage ?

This is where the therapist spends specific time on  individual areas to enable those particular muscles to work efficently, this can sometimes require repeat treatments to gain the best from this treatment to help restore functionality to muscle that have become lazy or are not functioning correctly.

Therapeutic massage often refered to as swedish massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues (skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments) of the body. It is a firm massage and has a set routine of techniques that vary from deep pressure to stimulate the body's systems, to a slower, more superficial movement to assist relaxation. There are four basic movements used in Therapeutic Massage:

Effleurage: relaxes and stretches the superficial muscles of the body.

Petrissage: kneading and squeezing of superficial and deeper muscles and soft tissue.

Friction: breaks down adhesions between tissues and relaxes muscle fibres.

Tapotement: a variety of percussive strokes to stimulate skin and muscles to increase blood flow.

We often use Aromathearpy oils to help resolve issues, please let us know if you have any allergies.
