Which one should I choose?
Deep tissue and sports massage
Ideal if you are training for a specific event such as a marathon, or if you take part in any sporting activity regulary. The techniques used aim to improve your performance, reduce tension in overused muscles, improve flexibility in tight tissues which will improve your range of movment. Importantly, it gives you awareness of how your body adapts to the sport you participate in, enabling you to improve how you train to acheive better results.
Remedial soft tissue therapy
If you are injured, suffering with chronic pain, managing a long term condition such as arthritis, recovering from recent surgery or have a postural or occupational related issue then this treatment is ideal. This is still a deep tissue technique, but we work with a more sensitive pain scale that you are happy with. The benefits include reduction pain, release of tension and quicker recovery.
Fascia is a connective tissue which is weblike and is an uninterrupted sheet of tissue that extends from the skull down to the soles of the feet. Fascia can shorten, solidify, and thicken in response to trauma, anything physically or emotionally injurious ot the body. This is a gentle,slow but very effective treatment, it restores balance and promotion of good posture, elimination of general pain and discomfort, aids injury recovery and rehabilitation and promotes relaxation and a sense of well-being.
Hot Stone Therapy Massage
With the use of heated stones, this is a deep releasing treatment, reduces physical tension, improves circulation and aids in flushing of toxins through the lymphatic system. Using hot stones relaxes the muscles and connective tissues, so reduces tension on the joints. This effect also allows for deeper massage maniuplation of the soft tissues and eliminates any therapeutic discomfort that may occur from remedial massage alone.
