Benefits of Therapeutic Massage Therapy - Improve blood flow to muscles in spasm - Reduce pain and muscle spasm/tension - Improve range of movement - Allow muscles to activate better (when muscles are tight it is harder to strengthen them) - Reduce tension in over-used muscles - Maintain good muscle condition on days off training, improving performance - Encourage healing of muscular injuries (under instruction from our Physios)
What to expect in our sessions: - All sessions are 45 minutes. This allows thorough treatment of specific areas and ensures that your body is not over-treated in any one session - If you are needing whole body treatment, we recommend you book this in two separate sessions to allow your body to cope and replenish - Warmed, private treatment room - Professional sessions catered to your needs - Notes taken (confidentially) so that we remember details of your specific problem areas and can give you the best outcomes - You may feel some tenderness after your session for 24-48 hours. This should ease and feel much freer afterward however you may like to use a hot wheat pack, bath and gently stretch to help it settle more quickly - Liaison with our Physiotherapists with your permission where needed - Please wear flexible clothing and expect that in some cases you may need to remove clothing (keeping underwear on).

Foot Massage Therapy with Reflexology Techniques
Reflexology is a complementary therapy based on the principle that all the systems of the body are mapped out in reflex points on the feet, hands and ears. Stimulation of the approximately 7,500 nerve endings in the feet helps to open up the natural pathways your body uses to nourish and heal itself. Think of Reflexology as a way of restoring the ‘flow’ within your body! Aside from this, foot massage is relaxing and helps to give you some really precious 'me time' and you'll come out feeling like your feet are floating on clouds! Benefits of Foot Massage with Reflexology techniques - Reduce Stress - Encourage Relaxation - Improve Circulation - Restore Sleep Patterns - Improve Immune System - Stimulate Nerve function - Ease Restless leg syndrome
What to expect - 45 minute relaxing session - Private, warmed treatment room - Begins with a foot spa and a cup of espresso coffee or herbal tea (of your choosing) - Indulgent foot massage with reflexology techniques - Any specific problems that you would like to address can be discussed with our therapist
