Therapeutic Massage

What is therapeutic massage?

Therapeutic massage is designed to relieve tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on underlying tissue layers, to release tension in sore, tight muscles.
Therapeutic Massage uses a combination of deep tissue, sports massage and advanced massage techniques. (Especially trigger point therapy, soft tissue release and neuromuscular techniques). Working intuitively with slow deep release allows the body to slow down and relax.  These methods can be successful with clients that have chronic pain, tension and stress, who require deep massage combined with a therapeutic approach.
Therapeutic massage tends to focus on the problem areas, and may be deeper than other massages. The massage may be a full body massage, however the session can be tailored to the areas that need most work: often the shoulders, back or legs. Therapeutic massage may also be a relaxing, stress relieving treatment and is suitable for people without specific problems.
Each session is preceded by a short consultation in order to tailor the massage to the client.

More about massage:

Massage is a safe, effective and natural way to relieve stress and pain.  It improves your feeling of well being and can bring soothing relief for muscular aches and pains.  Injuries can be healed by breaking down scar tissue to strengthen and aid the healing process, whilst your circulation is stimulated – promoting lymphatic drainage and increasing blood flow.  As toxins are released, the muscles are stretched and stimulated which improve your flexibility, posture and skin tone.
Too much unresolved stress in our lives can cause constant muscular tension. This tension or tightness reduces the flow of blood and oxygen to the muscles and organs and also restricts nerve & lymph supply. Tension creates a tendency for a build up of toxins in the body, and reduces the flow of the more subtle energy or life force. Tension can lead to symptomatic feelings of fatigue, heaviness, aches and pains, tightness of muscles and stiffness. Muscular stress can increase the likelihood of strains and injuries.
Massage releases your natural endorphins that reduce pain and give feel-good factor. Is a great way to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system and so lowering the pulse, slowing breathing and, in general, chilling you out.
