What is massage therapy?
“Massage therapy is a comprehensive intervention involving a range of techniques to manipulate the soft tissues and joints of the body. The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function or relieve pain.” (Massage Therapy Act, 1991)
Massage therapy is less intrusive than other forms of manipulation therapies such as physiotherapy, osteopathy or chiropractic treatment. There is less joint manipulation involved, and more focus on muscle groups and their interactions.
What To Expect From A Massage Therapy Session
Our massage therapist will gently but firmly manipulate your soft tissue structures, such as your muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and connective tissue. Many of our patients find that a therapeutic massage promotes a sense of wellbeing and emotional health.
Types of massage therapy we offer include:
- Relaxation massage
- Deep tissue massage
- Trigger point massage
- Prenatal massage (pregnancy massages)
- Head, neck and shoulder massages
- Sports massages (in association with physiotherapy)
Your Massage Therapy Treatment
All massage therapy treatments are performed in a private and soothing environment, to maximize the relaxing effects of the treatment.
