Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow to help relieve the symptoms associated with injury, musculoskeletal problems and stress. There are several specialized techniques used to locate and repair damage and to support and speed up the body’s own repair mechanisms.

Some benefits of Remedial Massage include the stimulation of blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed, calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort and the toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility.

Sports Massage

Whether you are the recreational sportsperson or the professional athlete, if you are looking for that competitive edge then a sports massage is for you.

Massage can do the following:
– a pre-event massage to loosen, warm and ready those muscles for activity which will improve your performance and endurance

– a post-event massage to relieve pain and stiffness after competition.
– a regular massage can help prevent sports-related injuries that keep you from competing.

Pre & Post Natal Massage

Massage during pregnancy has a number of benefits including promotion of circulation and inducing a state of relaxation, which assists in normalising all the body systems, calming the nervous system and bringing relief from muscle tension and cramping.

Post Natal massage may help with depression, mood swings and help tone and strengthen the immune system.

Lymphatic Drainage

The massage technique consists of light rhythmic strokes that follow the superficial path of the lymphatic vessels and also concentrate on the clusters of lymph nodes such as those in the neck and axilla. It is a light form of massage yet the results are marked and l

ongstanding. Lymphatic drainage is excellent for those undergoing detoxification therapies or suffer from lymphatic and immune dysfunction. Appointments available with Anne-Marie.

Reflexology is a theraputic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet and hands using controlled pressure to alleviate the source of discomfort. Reflexology promotes healing by stimulating the nerves in the body and encouraging the flow of blood. In the process, reflexology not only quells the sensation of pain but relieves the source of the pain as well. Reflexology applied to properly can alleviate allergy symptoms as well as stress, back pain and chronic fatigue.
