Therapeutic massage is a hands-on therapy in which muscles and other soft tissues of the body are manipulated in different ways to improve the health of those tissues and the well being of the body in general. Therapeutic massage can help in a wide variety of conditions including stress, headaches, muscular tension, back pain, depression and digestive disorders.
Massage relieves physical tension, fear and anxiety and is a very positive, relaxing experience for the body.
Massage can be gentle or firm but in general is not as deep as a sports massage. There are a few contraindications for massage and our therapist is careful to ask some screening questions at the first consultation.
