Who Can Benefit from Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy can improve the health of a wide range of people, from athletes needing assistance with recovery to working professionals who do long hours at their desk and suffer tension as a result. It is also great for people who are recovering from surgery and might have ongoing movement restriction and tightness, or simply everyday individuals with persisting aches and pains!

Remedial Massage Health Benefits

Remedial massage involves the assessment, analysis and treatment of your body with manual application of pressure and movement to soft tissues. This promotes the flow of blood and lymph, stimulating nerves, conditioning the skin, and stretching and loosening the muscles. Massage has been shown to have a large range of positive physical AND psychological effects.

Sports Massage Health Benefits

Sports Massage is similar to remedial massage, but the treatment is focused on preventing injuries and improving performance. It is suitable for anyone from elite athletes to casual sportsmen and women who want to prevent injury and help recovery. This technique uses massage to help the body recover after exercise or to prepare the body before exercise.
