Massage – Deep Tissue and Remedial

How long does a treatment last?

Treatments last 1 hour for a specific area, such as back and neck, or 1 ½ hours for a full body massage.

How many treatments will I need? And how often?

The number of treatments really depends on individual need, most people find a massage once or twice a month suits their health. It is also suitable for one-off treatments as and when required.

Does it hurt?

No, although certain pressure points or muscles may feel tender as tensions are being eased and muscles relaxed but this should help alleviate on-going aches and muscular discomfort.

Is it suitable for everyone?

Almost everyone can benefit from massage. However it may not be suitable for those who have/are:-

  • Had recent surgery/operations
  • Recent scar tissue
  • Frail or thin skin
  • Pregnant or recently given birth
  • Colds or coughs
  • Infectious conditions e.g. Coughs and colds

How do I know if my practitioner is professionally qualified?

A massage therapist will usually belong to a professional association specific to massage and/or one for Complementary and Alternative practitioners. Please ask if you would like to see certificates or get details for the practitioner’s professional association.

How will I feel after a treatment?

Each treatment is unique to the individual and so each session may differ in terms of experience. Some people feel tired, whilst others feel relaxed and calm. In areas where there has been a lot of tension or muscular discomfort you may feel some tenderness but the benefits will soon be felt.
