Massage Therapy has a long history in cultures around the world. Depending on the application and techniques used, massage is beneficial in treating sports injuries and other problems affecting the musculature of the body such as postural misalignment and many painful conditions.

Sports Massage helps to recover after sports training and optimises your performance. This massage utilises medium to hard pressure focusing on muscular releases and stretches.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a technique used to gently work and stimulate the lymphatic system, to assist in reduction of localised swelling. The lymphatic system is a network of slow moving vessels in the body that carries cellular waste toward the heart, to be filtered and removed. Lymph also carries lymphocytes, and other immune system agents. Manual lymphatic drainage claims to improve waste removal and immune function.

A massage can be part of the Physiotherapy treatment or can be booked separately.
