About your massage
Massage is suitable for most people. To ensure your continued well-being all our treatments begin with a consultation – enabling your therapist to make sure that massage is right for you. A confidential case history will be kept with any relevant notes for future treatments. Comfort is paramount with rooms nice and warm and plenty of blankets on hand.
The object of massage is to activate the touch receptors in your skin, with the appropriate level of pressure, so that the receptors send pleasurable messages to your brain. Rhythmic stroking of your skin ensures that massage is always a soothing and regenerating experience. Overall, a massage helps you relax and unwind, which makes it an ideal antidote to today’s stressful lifestyles.

Therapeutic massage to more specifically tackle injuries, stiffness, imbalances and muscle tensions This more complex form of massage assists in the removal of waste products and helps supply the tissues with essential nutrients to aid recovery and increases blood flow so that tissues can help improve the recovery process. This massage is often used alongside the more advanced body work being done in the osteopathic sessions and is a valued contribution to the whole treatment plan.
