Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is the most common type of massage technique used in our clinic. As the name suggests, it is a deep technique. Deep tissue massage aims to reduce muscle tension, therefore reducing pain and discomfort. It has many other benefits, some of which are, boosting the immune system, reducing inflammation, aiding recovery and improving muscle tone. Deep tissue massage works on soft tissue structures such as muscle, ligaments, tendons and fascia.
Relaxing Holistic Massage
In the clinic, we also offer a relaxing holistic massage. This type of massage uses lighter strokes which triggers a relaxed state in the body. A relaxation massage is proven to help aid in reduction of anxiety, stress and depression as it releases endorphins into the body which are known as “the feel good hormone” & can be time away from a busy schedule.
Pregnancy massage is a specialist technique performed specifically for pregnant women. During pregnancy there is an increased load on the muscles and joints in the body which may cause further stress on the body.
A pregnancy massage commonly involves the patient in a side lying position, in order to optimise comfort. Extra pillows will also be supplied to ensure your comfort. Massage techniques will differ from a regular massage. Pregnancy massage techniques are more gentle than a deep tissue massage. This type of massage has many benefits, these include;
Aids to regulate hormone production by increasing hormones associated with relaxation and stress reduction,
Reduced Swelling and Edema,
Increased Comfort by reducing pain cause by musculoskeletal issues,
Improved Fetal Positioning,
