Massage involves working the soft tissue of the body, to ease day-to-day stresses and muscular tension, and promote relaxation. It helps to increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the treated areas and can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries.

What to expect

Before a session commences your therapist will provide a full consultation, asking you various questions about your health and lifestyle, to ensure the therapy is right for you.

Most full body massage sessions take approximately an hour, though a ‘back, neck and shoulder’ massage may take between 30 to 40 minutes.

Massage usually takes place on a massage table or coach. If direct contact with the skin is required then a nourishing oil or cream-based product will generally be used to provide a free-flowing massage, and towels carefully placed to ensure your modesty and to keep you warm and comfortable throughout.

Whatever type of massage you are having, your therapist will advise you of what to expect before the session begins.

Benefits of massage

Massage is used by people for a variety of reasons. Some use it to simply relax and unwind, while others have regular massage to help them manage or cope with specific physical, mental or emotional problems. Many aspiring and professional athletes have massage before and after training and competing, in order to

stay in optimum condition and aid recovery.
