How does Massage Therapy work?

 

Massage therapy involves manipulating the body's soft tissues to improve circulation, reduce muscle tension, and promote relaxation.

 

This hands-on technique can target specific areas of the body or provide a full-body treatment.

 

In addition to physical benefits, massage therapy can also have a positive impact on mental health. Massage has been linked to improved mental health outcomes, including reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression. The release of endorphins during a massage can boost mood and promote a sense of well-being.

What are the benefits of massage therapy?

 

Studies have shown that massage therapy can reduce stress levels by lowering cortisol levels in the body. It can also help alleviate chronic pain conditions such as lower back pain and arthritis.

Massage therapy has been practiced for centuries and is known for its numerous health benefits. In fact, research has found that regular massage sessions can lead to a significant decrease in pain intensity.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage, also known as classic massage, is one of the most popular and widely recognised massage techniques in the world.

 

Developed in the 19th century by a Swedish physiologist named Per Henrik Ling, this therapeutic practice has been refined over the years to provide a range of benefits for both the body and mind.

These techniques include effleurage (long, sweeping strokes), petrissage (kneading and squeezing), friction (deep circular movements), tapotement (rhythmic tapping) and vibration (rapid shaking or trembling).

Often used to for deep relaxation, stress and pain relief, Swedish Massage often involves rubbing, kneading, stroking and tapping your muscles.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage is a type of Swedish Massage that stimulates circulation of blood and lymph fluids.

It was designed for athletes to help develop and prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recovery and flexibility.

The therapist will adjust the pressure and intensity of the massage based on the client's preferences and needs.

 

It is especially useful for anyone with chronic pain, injury or range of motion issues or just general demands of life. Sports Massage can also improve posture and promote a greater sense of well-being

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a soft tissue massage treatment to help increase myofascial mobility and reduce pain within the musculoskeletal system.

 

Myofascial is connective tissue that is situated under the skin and surrounds muscle, bone, ligaments and tendons. Soft tissues in the body can become restricted due to injury, overuse, inactivity and result in pain, tension and reduced blood flow.

 

Myofascial release is a slow, effective technique to relief symptoms of fascia restrictions

Cupping Bath

Cupping pulls blood to a region to stimulate healing. It is effective at stretching tight fascia and muscles. Cupping helps the tissue develop new blood flow and stimulates the healing process. It's generally painless, and many versions of Cupping can be found in different cultures such as; Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

The suction created by the cups helps to increase blood flow, loosen muscles, and release toxins from the body., which provides the following benefits:

  • Increasing circulation which increases oxygenation and nutrient levels within tissue

  • Increases the removal of chemical irritants within muscle and fascia and the removal of stagnant blood

  • Micro trauma which leads to sterile inflammation and a renewed healing process.

  • Produces a stretch reflex in fascia and connective tissue, which increases mobility at the joint.

  • Works well in conjunction with other therapy such as sports and remedial massage, joint mobilisations and Dry Needling /medical acupuncture.
