Our professional massage therapists are dedicated to continued, regular training on techniques so that we can offer our patients the very best possible outcomes.
How massage therapy works
Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage therapy can range from light stroking to deep pressure. There are many different types of massage, including these common types:
This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energise you.
This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It is commonly used to help with muscle damage from injuries.
This is similar to Swedish massage, but it's geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or to treat injuries.
Trigger point massage
This massage focuses on specific areas of tight muscle fibres that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse.
