Types of Massage We Offer?

 

Remedial

This type of massage therapy is more treatment focused – ie if you have a particular area of pain or injury, remedial massage works at relieving symptoms and treating the actual problem or condition. For example, plantar fasciitis, or shoulder tendonitis.

Remedial massage is a therapeutic deep tissue massage that can incorporate other forms such as Trigger Point Therapy, or Myofascial Release that can treat specific health issues, musculoskeletal problems and injuries. It provides a deeper relaxation if you are stressed and soothes sore, tired muscles.

Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic drainage massage is an extremely gentle, rhythmic and flowing massage that targets the lymphatic system alone.
