Benefits of Massage Therapy

  • Pain relief and stress management: Massage decreases pain with the release of pain-reducing neurochemicals and decreases stress levels by activating the relaxation response. Recipients of massage show an increase in dopamine and serotonin levels, suggesting a decrease in stress levels and depression.
  • General Health and Wellbeing: Massage sedates and relaxes the body by normalising nerve activity. It can decrease insomnia and improve sleeping patterns through stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system
  • Muscle Health: Massage helps to maintain muscles in the best possible state of nutrition, flexibility and vitality, speeding up muscle recovery after activity or injury. It relieves muscle restrictions which may limit full movement. It encourages better muscle activity through increased movement of nutrients and removal of waste products. Massage can also delay muscle wastage due to disuse (for example, after a stroke or during lengthy bed rest).
  • Skin Health: Massage improves oxygenation and nutrition of the skin, increases skin elasticity and loosens scar tissue to promote health and movement. It also improves sebaceous secretion to lubricate the skin and improve its texture and condition.
  • Cardiovascular Health: Massage increases local blood flow without putting additional strain on the heart. It stimulates the nerves that control blood vessels. (Widening the blood vessels can increase blood circulation and lower blood pressure in some cases). It mechanically propels blood towards the heart in bed-rest patients. Massage also decreases the heart rate through decreased stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system (this is called the relaxation response).
  • Respiratory Health: Massage may slow down the rate of respiration via reduced stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system. It may also increase lung capacity and pulmonary function where they have been compromised by tight primary and secondary muscles of respiration
  • Lymphatic Health: Massage reduces some forms of swelling (lymphoedema) by mechanically stimulating circulation. This can also be useful when a person is immobile due to pain or where injury interferes with lymphatic drainage. It decreases swelling after injury, promoting repair and faster return to activity. Massage has also been shown to increase the presence of natural killer cells and their activity, suggesting that it may strengthen the immune system.

Therapies that may be used during your treatment

  • Remedial Massage – Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension, tone which will in turn promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position; increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury.
  • Trigger Point Massage – alleviates tight areas within the muscle (trigger points) that refer pain to other parts of the body through sequences of isolated pressure and release. The massage recipient is able to actively participate through deep breathing and locating and identifying trigger points.
  • Deep tissue Massage – uses slower, more forceful strokes to target the deeper layer of muscle and connective tissue. Commonly used to help with muscle damage from injuries and benefits patients with muscle tightness, chronic overuse injuries, chronic pain from poor posture or acute injuries where muscle function is compromised e.g. whiplash, sprains and herniated discs.
  • Sports Massage – sports massage is similar to Swedish massage, using more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It’s geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries and aid recovery.
  • Swedish Massage – is a gentle form of massage that usually involves a full body treatment to help you relax and become energised. It will benefit patients with high degrees of stress & tension, recurring headaches, anxiety and depression or poor circulation.
  • Pregnancy Massage – uses a combination of Swedish and Remedial Massage techniques, to assist with the tensions and pains experienced during pregnancy.
  • Corporate/Workplace Massage uses a specialised chair to conduct head, neck and shoulder massage.
