The most common type of massage is Swedish massage therapy.
It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on the topmost layers of muscles. This is the massage therapy of choice to promote your relaxation, stress relief and general well being
This type of massage uses firmer pressure than the Remedial form.
Notably, it is also a slower approach… the slower strokes reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).
The time-tested therapy of Hot stone massage combines relaxing warmth with a hands-on massage to encourage the body to detox and heal. This also increases lymph flow and helps to flush out waste. Heat relaxes your body in a short space of time, so your therapist can focus on a deep working of the tissues using both hot stones and hand strokes.
Hot stones also increase your sense of relaxation and calm. They are coated in fragrant oil which is smoothed gently onto your body, and each stone in turn is worked by your therapist’s hands.
Hot stone massage can: boost your circulation, release stored tension, recharge your energy level and relax you.
Hot stone massage is said to have health benefits for people with: muscular pain, poor circulation, rheumatic and arthritic conditions, fibromyalgia, back pain, stress, insomnia and depression.
As with all of our massage therapies, never underestimate the feel-good factor. Hot stone massage will help you feel nurtured, pampered and special.
This is used for chronic musculoskeletal conditions, postural conditions, sporting and occupational injuries.
If your presentation comprises injured soft tissue, such as muscles, tendons and ligaments, this is the beneficial ‘remedy (remedial)’ point of care.
Rachael and Andrea have become well known in the NorthWest for providing preparatory massages for people involved with sporting events (runners, athletes, triathletes, gymnasts, dancers and more).
You just need to decide if you need a relaxing/releasing therapy prior to (or after) your Marathon, race, dance or other event is up to you. Many patients opt for both!
Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the specific source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release.
Muscle Energy Technique (MET) is a manual therapy that uses the gentle muscle contractions of the patient to relax and lengthen muscles and normalise joint motion.
MET is often applied to patients who present with neurological conditions, or those who suffer from muscle spasms.
Everybody loves a good foot rub. But did you know that formal disciplines and approaches to foot massage date back to ancient Egypt and China?
By the late 1800s, Europeans invented reflexology: applying pressure to a person’s feet in order to affect a physical change to the body. Some have suggested that reflexology works on acupuncture points in the feet; others feel that a thorough foot massage is a great way to undo the pounding effects of a busy life or jogging/running.
All massage therapists use some kind of oil to massage in a smooth way into soft tissue and deep tissue
Our masseurs are qualified in the use of aromatherapy, which means they can use specific essential oils to further enhance the effects of their physical treatments.
A 30-minute massage with Andrea or Rachael is just £32.00.
A full hour appointment is just £13 extra, at £45.00.
Have to say, I had massage therapy and a reflexology taster with Rachel today. I cannot recommend enough! Thoroughly lovely young woman, brilliant massage, explained what was happening at various points and excellent experience overall. Will definitely be back when I can. Thank you so much!
Wonderful care and treatment. Having a chronic painful condition, it is so good walking out feeling so much better than when I arrived. Thank you.
