We Specialize In

Sports Massage

Whether Caused by sport, injury or the many stresses and strains of modern-day life, a sports massage can help you. Sports massage therapy uses firm pressure to reach deep into muscle tissues aiming to loosen up tight muscles. Sports massage may be used as a preventative therapy to injury, as corrective therapy to an injury during rehabilitation or as a sports specific therapy when training for an event. It aims to improve muscle flexibility which ensures your joints and muscles achieve better performance and prevent muscular and joint injury

Kinesiology Taping

This is an elastic tape that provides sensory input into an area, but still allows for full range of motion. Kinesiology tape works by lifting the skin from the tissues below it to both support muscle and allow freedom of movement.

Swedish Massage

The most common type of massage is Swedish massage therapy. one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing.

Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage is a relaxing holistic treatment that uses acupressure massage on the head, face, neck and shoulders. It aims to rebalance your body’s energies. Benefits: – conditions the scalp – helps enhance blood circulation – Sense of Relaxation – Can help relive headaches

Acupuncture

Western medical acupuncture is the use of acupuncture following a medical diagnosis. It involves stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles.

This results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins. It’s likely that these naturally released substances are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture.

A course of acupuncture usually creates longer lasting pain relief than when a single treatment is used.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that involves the use of smooth, heated stones. The localized heat and weight of the stones warm and relax the muscles, allowing the massage therapist to apply deeper pressure to those areas without causing discomfort. Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism.

Testimonials

Recent Reviews

Had my first sports massage with Megan yesterday and it was amazing. She identified the problem areas and talked me through what she was doing and why the whole time. Very professional and informative. She concentrated on the areas that needed the work and always made sure I wasn’t feeling uncomfortable or in any pain. Would highly recommend Megan and her friendly and warm character made it easy, pleasant affordable and beneficial experience. Have rebooked for another one! Slightly tender today but felt much easier to move around on my night shift. Thanks Megan xx
