The benefits of massage

Massage is a manipulation of muscles and soft tissue to reduce tension, increase flexibility and blood circulation, flush out toxins, and promote balance in the body. Massage can address specific injuries and imbalances in the body to reduce pain and increase function.

To achieve the most effective outcome for each individual receiving the massage, different methods and techniques are applied. Neuromuscular and trigger point therapy, deep tissue and passive stretches, are utilised and combined to encourage deep release and relaxation.

Sports massage

Massage can be applied as an ongoing maintenance program to increase the body’s recovery while training. Many injuries can occur because muscles have been suffering from tension. When increased strain is placed on muscles during sports activity the tissues can be injured and struggle to recover. Receiving regular massage is becoming an increasingly popular treatment to prevent injury, assist rehabilitation and aid recovery time between training and events.

Relaxation massage

Massage for relaxation is very effective, it has been well researched and documented to reduce stress hormones in the body, creating beneficial chemical changes that can result in pain relief, increased immunity, lower blood pressure, decreased anxiety and depression, improve mood, enhance sleep, improve circulation and reduce fatigue. These effects accumulated will increase resilience and optimise well being in the body and mind.
