What are Massage Therapies?
Massage is healing by touch. We work with the soft tissues of your body, including muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage can help to improve the functioning of your joints and muscles, promote circulation and general body tone, and relieve pain and mental and physical fatigue. At the emotional level it calms your spirit, helps you relax, and relieves stress.At Marlborough House our Osteopathy team offer all our clients the opportunity to come in and have a free initial back check/assessment to find out exactly how we can help with your pain or discomfort. We have both male and female practitioners should you have a preference and between our team we can offer appointments Monday – Friday. Our aim is to help you to live your life with your body working as well as possible. Call 01823 272227 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage uses advanced massage techniques such as trigger point therapy, acupressure and positional release and is especially suitable for relieving tight or strained muscles. Deep Tissue massage techniques are useful for relieving back pain, joint stiffness and muscle tension, respiratory problems, poor circulation and general fatigue. Deep tissue massage can relieve sciatica, muscular pain and tension, carpal tunnel syndrome, frozen shoulder, migraines and headaches and many other conditions.
Indian Head Massage
In Indian head massage the therapist concentrates on massaging your head, neck and shoulders. This profoundly enjoyable and relaxing massage technique helps promote health and well-being. It stimulates nerve endings, improves blood supply to the scalp and can encourage hair growth. Clients have reported that it has helped to relieve muscular tension and pain, and reduced stress and tension-related conditions such as headaches, neck discomfort, and eye strain.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a very gentle massage which aids lymphatic flow, so aiding the elimination of waste products in the body, it is suitable for conditions such as congested sinuses and congestion headaches, swollen legs and ankles, and is also an effective beauty treatment as it reduces puffy eyes and aids circulation. It can also be a beneficial treatment for whiplash injury and helps to reduce discomfort and increases mobility. Please note that this level of lymphatic drainage massage is not suitable for patients with lymphoedema resulting from injury or surgery, as this requires more specialist manual lymphatic drainage massage techniques.
A Sports Massage is a deep treatment that loosens up tight muscles, breaks up adhesions in muscle fibres, and generally focuses on restoring and/or maintaining the full functionality of your muscles. It can help your muscles perform better and prevent injury. Muscle injuries will often heal more effectively with the help of deep tissue massage.
