Our most requested treatment is probably massage, this may have something to do with our surroundings and the Lake District visitors' favourite pastime of walking but we know it's much more than that. Massage has increased in popularity throughout the world over recent years yet it is a tool that has been used for many thousands of years in one form or another to heal, soothe and repair.
Ideal for treating tired achy muscles, specific massage techniques are used to stimulate blood and lymphatic flow and smooth out tension from tight knotty muscles.
Pre-blended aromatherapy oils combined with gentle massage techniques help to de-stress and stimulate the senses by treating nerve endings and energy flow throughout the body.
Sports Massage is the manipulation and stretching of muscle and connective tissues for the purpose of enhancing functions of the body such as movement and performance. It enables us to get the most from our muscles.
When a muscle feels tight, tender, weak or painful it is a sign that it's congested. Muscle that is congested does not function at its full potential and will hold you back in carrying out a specific task, be it athletic performance or a day-to-day activity. Deep tissue sports massage can help to decongest and improve the condition of the muscle which will alleviate the symptom.
Sports massage can help everybody! Sports massage is not only for sports people - anyone who is experiencing everyday levels of strain and stress will benefit. Deep tissue massage releases muscular congestion and pain, aids the lymphatic system, improves circulation and enhances the functional quality of muscle tissue.
