On your initial visit your practitioner will spend time discussing the reason for your visit, the cause and effect and the recommendations for treatment - customising your treatment appropriately.
We will discuss with you the follow-up treatment required or referral to an alternative practitioner such as a Physiotherapist, Chiropractor, Osteopath, Acupuncturist, medical specialist, etc.
On each subsequent visit, the practitioner will discuss any changes or benefits you have experienced, and discuss the next course of action.

When muscles and tendons become damaged and tense, or joints are immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment designed to explore the original cause and relieve the symptoms. When muscles feel fatigued, stiff and sore, Remedial Massage stretches and lengthens these muscles and reduces spasms. Circulation and the removal of waste products is improved. This form of massage is suitable for problems arising from sports and activities, from the work environment, or from everyday life situations.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep Tissue Massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue, specifically the individual muscle fibres to release deeply held tension points. It is beneficial for many physical problems, including sports injuries and chronic pain.
Deep Tissue Massage usually focuses on specific areas and may cause some soreness during or after the session. Improvement is often felt within a few days after the massage.
Sports Massage is the manipulation of the body's ligaments, tendons and muscles as part of one's training programme and health maintenance. It is also important before, during and after a sporting event.
The aim is to help the individual achieve peak performance, optimise recovery and minimise injury. In helping the muscles return to normal function, activity can be resumed sooner and peak performance sustained. It is not only beneficial to elite athletes, but aslo to the everyday athlete.
Fascia is a Latin word meaning ‘band’ or ‘bandage’. It is the most pervasive type of tissue in the body (very thin yet tough) and is continuous from superficial (just under the skin) to deep, in a three dimensional web from head to toe. Every muscle and organ is surrounded by fascia to retain its normal shape. Thus restriction of the fascia can create pain and or malfunction anywhere in the body. People who suffer with pain, decreased range of motion, or both, often have fascial problems.
Myofascial Release is a technique that uses sustained pressure and gentle stretches to release restrictions in the fascial system. The treatment helps eliminate pain and restore motion and function to the body. You will feel your mind as well as your body, unwinding. When your fascia is free, you are free.

Swedish Massage is relaxing and invigorating designed to increase the blood flow, calm or invigorate the nervous system and release toxins from the muscles. A deeply relaxing massage promotes quality sleep, which in turn promotes calming of the mind and repair of tissues. Swedish Massage reduces stress, both emotional and physical.
