Deep tissue Massage
Firm pressure and slow strokes are applied to reach the deeper layers of the muscle and fascia (connective tissue). Those suffering from limited mobility and overuse injuries greatly benefit from a deep tissue massage.

Sports massage is perfect for anyone who exercises and can be used before, during and after training. It can help to increase flexibility, circulation and aid in a quicker recovery.
Remedial massage is a systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue within the human body. The techniques employed by a remedial therapist are used to assist in the rehabilitation, management and treatment of injuries and pain.
Through massage, our therapists are able to manipulate muscle length, tension and tone in order to adjust joint, bone and capsular position. This will in turn promote blood flow to the area aiding in recovery.
We aim to trace the original cause of the pain, tackling both the root of the problem and the symptoms.
