Massage explained

Deep Tissue Massage and Trigger Point Massage is an intensive, deep treatment intended for the relief of stubborn knots in all areas of the body. The Practitioner uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping techniques to focus on and relieve myofascial trigger points, also known as ‘muscle knots’.

Massage - What to expect

On the first visit, a case history will be taken. The client will be asked about their symptoms, medical history and desired outcome of the treatment. This enables our massage therapists to tailor each session to the client’s individual needs. This then enables a suitable treatment plan to be devised.

Typically, the patient lies on a massage table, in either loose-fitting clothing or undressed (covered with a towel, except for the area being massaged). The practitioner uses oil, lotion or talcum powder to reduce friction on the skin.
