Swedish Massage therapy is the image that most people will conjure up when thinking about massage and is designed to relax the entire body. The therapist will rub the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Circular pressure applied by the hands, rhythmic tapping, bending, kneading and stretching are techniques used by the therapist to impart the full benefits of Swedish massage.


Not only is Swedish massage relaxing, it is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, improving circulation and flexibility whilst easing tension in te body, it also decreases muscle toxins.


Deep Tissue Massage is very similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints.


Sports Massage Therapy is designed for athletes of every kind, from cyclists to tennis players, young or old. The treatment depends upon the nature of the sport of the patient. By concentrating on areas of the body that are overworked and stressed from repetitive and often harsh movements.
