Massage therapy is a treatment that has been enjoyed throughout history, appearing in both the art and literature of ancient civilisations from Japan to Rome.
On your first appointment you will be asked a few questions concerning general well-being, injuries and medical conditions that the therapist may need to know about, in order to determine if there are any contra-indications (physical conditions that would prohibit or limit a massage treatment).
It can be used for the treatment of physical injury or pain, as well as for mental ailments and distress, by applying pressure to points on certain parts of the body or by the stimulation of blood flow and release of tense muscles. Upper and lower back massage has been proven to assist in a huge range of conditions as well as its uses as a true form of relaxation.
