Massage helps not just the body but also the mind?
Bodywork for pain. It's used to help prevent injuries, prepare the body for activity & maintain it's optimal condition, & to help recover from workouts, injuries & chronic pain. May include massage, dry cupping therapy, needles, kinesiology taping or massage tools!
Deep Tissue Massage is a great treatment to get to the muscles which are aching deep in the body. Using tension-releasing techniques, I can help you get rid of the tightness and you will feel more mobile and flexible afterwards. This is a full body treatment and perfect for those who don't want me to focus on one area but the whole body instead.
A relaxation massage will include lighter, longer strokes which will aid draining out toxins from your tired muscles, relieving stress and making you feel completely relaxed. Remind me to put some relaxing music or some ambient sounds to keep in line with this theme!
Dry cupping is a technique I use, combined with sports massage to help release muscle tension, tightness and relieve pain from injured areas. It is particularly good for your back as it can help loosen the connective tissue over your spine which is an area that does not get massaged. The cups increase blood flow, reduce tension, relief pain and promote a faster healing process for some injuries. Used as part of a sports massage treatment.
Chair Massage is great for those who don't like oils or taking clothes off and it can be used in almost all office/event settings. Great for calming, improves flexibility, increases circulation, relieves general muscle aches, boosts energy levels, improves concentration and helps relieve headaches.
Dry needling is an alternative medicine technique similar to acupuncture. The needles insert into the skin and are place into trigger points of pain, areas of connective tissue build up or areas of tension in the soft tissue. The needles stimulate the muscle, help it to relax and relieve tension and pain. They are particular good at getting to muscles which are deep under the surface or in hard to reach places such as the rotator cuff muscles under the scapula. They are a great addition to your treatment and is almost pain free. Used during sports massage treatment. Used as part of a sports massage treatment.
Pregnancy Massage is a great treatment for anyone who has passed their first trimester and wants a treatment to help wind down and deal with the daily aches and pains caused by the added strain on your body. A pregnancy massage includes a full body treatment using oils specific for due mothers to help calm and relax you completely. Expect a full body treatment from your toes, through your legs, tummy, back, neck and finishing with a relaxing head massage so you leave the treatment feeling amazing.
