Massage Therapy

General Body Massage

Massage therapy is a highly effective and enjoyable way to relieve muscular aches and pains, reduce stress and relax. Preventing and relieving muscular tension, tension headaches and insomnia, massage improves circulation, well-being, the ability to cope with stress, digestion and skin tone. It is also an important aid in accelerating the body's natural healing processes. Massage works through maniuplating the superficial and deep muscles and by doing so increases the blood supply to them. this feeds both nutrients and oxygen to the muscles, which strengthens and energises them. Massage also aids the breakdown and disposal of toxins stores in the muscles by breaking down the congested tissue and returning it to the blood system. So regular massage treatments help energise, clean and relax the body, improving tone to the muscles and the skin and keeping the skeletal joints mobile.

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage is a wonderful way of relaxing the mind and body during pregnancy and can be carried out after the first trimester. It relieves cramps, spasms, aches and pains from the muscles and reduces stress to the load bearing joints of the skeletal frame.

The body itself is under many stresses and strains during pregnancy and areas such as lower back, hips and legs tend to suffer the most. these areas benefit greatly from massage both by rejuvenating the muscles and working to keep the body's posture strong and healthy. As well as the physiological benefits of massage for pregnancy, the psychological benefits are equally as important. Massage is shown to relax the mind, reducing stress and anxiety and can reduce instances of insomnia. Furthermore, research has shown mothers who have massage are more likely to massage their babies, deepening the first bond between mother and baby.
