Also known as ‘stress release’ and ‘holistic’ massage, therapeutic massage is your standard full body massage therapy.
Therapists use a variety of massage techniques to release tension, stretch muscles, relieve stress and promote relaxation.
Therapeutic massage is not as ‘deep’ as some other forms of massage, making it a great introduction to the therapy.
It is also perfect for those who prefer a more gentle experience.
What should I expect during my treatment?
Your appointment time includes a consultation with your therapist where they will discuss your health and the proposed treatment. They may also spend some time on examination.
Your appointment also includes time for dressing and undressing so we recommend wearing loose, comfortable clothing and shoes which are easy to remove. After your treatment your therapist will provide some aftercare advice.
