Specialist massage treatments

Sports massage is a treatment involving the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a person engaged in repetitive tasks or physical activity. It helps correct problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity.

Many people assume that sports massage is only for athletes, but it’s not. Whether you are a recreational or a professional athlete, office worker or tradesman, sports massage can be useful for anyone.

What can sports massage help with?

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tendinopathy
  • Muscle strain
  • Upper and lower back pain

Pregnancy massage

Pregnancy massage is a safe, relaxing and uplifting treatment specifically tailored to the needs of expectant mothers. We recommend that you wait until you are in your second trimester before you enjoy a massage. If you have had any complications it is advisable to speak to your doctor before booking a treatment.

Pregnancy massage can:

  • Help to ease backaches and/or headaches
  • Relieve muscular aches and pains
  • Stimulate drainage which can help reduce fluid retention
  • Be uplifting and revitalising
  • Reduce stress and anxiety and their detrimental effects on overall health

Manual lymphatic drainage

Manual lymphatic drainage is a type of gentle massage which encourages the natural drainage of fluid and waste products away from the tissues and back towards the heart. The aim of the massage is to move fluid from a swollen area into an area where the body can process it more effectively.

Manual lymphatic drainage can reduce swelling and pain and promote healing. When you have the massage you feel a gentle pressure. It is not a deep massage. The movements are slow and rhythmic and should feel relaxing.
