Sports Therapy Massage

Sports massage is a great way to resolve chronic and acute pain. The general principle is to bring blood to areas of muscle that are tense and so offer relief. Problems that are best addressed by a sports massage are back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain and foot pain. At the beginning of the session you will be assessed and a treatment plan will be formulated. Modalities that may be used include stretching, posture assessment, mobilisations, muscle activations and massage to address and resolve any musculoskeletal problems.
At the end of the session exercises may be prescribed as part of a continuing treatment.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is a non-intrusive treatment focusing on the head, neck and shoulder areas. It is a deeply relaxing treatment based on the ancient Ayurvedic system of healing.

Indian Head Massage can help to relieve built up stress and tension that can often result in headaches, migraines, neck and back pain. It can help ease symptoms of sinusitis, and release tension often held in the jaw (for example by clenching teeth due to stress). It aids detoxification by stimulating lymphatic drainage, can improve circulation, and boost overall immunity. It can help promote clarity of mind and increase concentration. It may also help relieve sleeplessness, restlessness and insomnia.

An Indian Head massage may also improve overall mental health by providing relief from stress, promoting relaxation, renewing energy levels and increasing feelings of peace, calm and well being, which can all help in relieving symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Hot Stone Massage

In a Hot Stone Massage warmed stones are placed on the body and used by the therapist to provide a deep and warming massage throughout the body.

The stones are immersed in water and heated in an electric heater until they are within a certain temperature range. The heat of the stones warm and relax the muscles, which allows the therapist to apply deeper pressure, if desired.

The warmth of the hot stones improves circulation and calms the nervous system.
Some massage therapists place stones on points that are thought to be energy centres of the body to rebalance the body and mind.

A hot stone massage is likely to leave you feeling comforted and relaxed.

Warm Bamboo Massage

In a Warm Bamboo Massage different sized warmed bamboo sticks are used to provide a warming and therapeutic massage across the whole body.

The bamboo sticks are gently heated to a specific temperature in a special warming bag. The heat of the bamboo sticks warms the skin, allowing it to absorb moisturising and therapeutic oils, while at the same time preparing the muscles so that they the therapist can work into deeper muscle layers.

The warm bamboo massage increases local circulation, improves blood flow to muscles and assists with the body’s natural detoxification process. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth, which makes it very sustainable.

Remedial Massage

A session will generally start with a postural and muscular consultation to assess the issue, followed by a treatment using a range of remedial massage techniques including Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release and joint mobilisation (see below). Afterwards we’ll discuss follow-up treatments and take home advice if necessary.
Remedial massage assists with muscle dysfunction by using a variety of techniques and tests. It is effective for those with orthopedic conditions such as sciatica, frozen shoulder, muscular cramps, headaches, acute and chronic pain. Remedial massage can help to improve your posture, increase circulation, reduce any numbness you may be experiencing and reduce general aches and pains.
Trigger point therapy is a form of remedial massage therapy in which direct pressure is applied to specific points on tender muscle tissue to bring about reduction in muscle tension and pain relief that often refer to other areas of the body. It is often very useful in breaking the pain cycle.
Myofascial release is a safe and effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure to the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions found within and around muscles. This technique helps to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Joint Mobilisation helps to loosen up stiff joints to improve flexibility and restore range of motion. Small passive movements are applied in a rhythmic fashion or the joint may need stretching.
