Massage helps with active sports and fitness routines, tight and painful muscles or can be used to aid relaxation and stimulation of inactive muscles. Be you a Sunday golfer/footballer or elite athlete, massage can help.

What a Treatment Aims to Accomplish:

Massage is a systematic manual application of pressure and movement to the soft tissue of the body. It encourages healing by promoting the flow of blood and lymph, relieving tension, stimulating nerves, and stretching and loosening muscles and connective tissue to keep them elastic. Before physical exercise, massage helps get blood moving and assists in stretching the muscle fibres to aid in the warm-up. Massage after a workout has been shown to reduce the waste products that build up in muscles after exercise that can cause muscle discomfort. There is also scientific evidence to support claims that massage enhances the immune system and aids recovery from soft tissue injuries by increasing blood circulation to injured areas, removes scar tissue and releases tension/protective spasm within the muscle fibres.

The healing powers of massage have been recognised for many thousands of years. In 2700 BC the earliest written mention of massage was made within the Chinese book "Ancient writings of Kong Fu". In around 230 BC the Greek physician Hippocrates wrote that his colleagues should be experienced "in rubbing ... for rubbing can bind a joint that is too loose, and loosen a joint that is too rigid". The ancient Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans have used various forms of massage throughout the ages.
