TREATMENTS AVAILABLE:

 

SPORTS MASSAGE

This deep tissue trigger point massage can:

  • Reduce the chance of injury
  • Improve range of motion and muscle flexibility – resulting in increased power and performance
  • Shorten recovery time between workouts
  • Maximise the supply of nutrients and oxygen through increased blood flow
  • Enhance elimination of the metabolic by-products of exercise.

 

THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE

Using knowledge of anatomy, this massage technique is a manipulation of the soft tissue, working in conjunction with the muscular structure of the human body. The therapists also use a combination of trigger point and flow to promote general well being. Benefits include the boosting of the circulatory immune systems and improve blood pressure, circulation, muscle tone, digestion and skin quality.

 

RELAXATION / HOLISTIC MASSAGE

 

This is a full flowing massage that includes the face, scalp and neck. Our therapists use a few trigger points that de-stress, soothe and refresh. The treatment also increases circulation, improves skin tone, helps with lymph drainage and relieves tension. It is wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating. A lot of tension is found in the face, neck and skull, which is why our therapists activate power trigger points to release the tension and leave one feeling completely renewed.

 

LYMPH DRAINAGE MASSAGE

 

Lymph Drainage is important for Good Health. The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is important to our body’s ability to drain fluids, detoxify, regenerate tissues, filter out toxins and foreign substances, and maintain a healthy immune system.

 

MASSAGE TO THE PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED

 

Our massage therapists are well experienced in massaging tight muscles, spasms, muscle contractures and chronic scar tissue in physically challenged clients who are active in sport or inactive. Their clients range from spinal cord injuries  to clients with cerebral palsy.

 

CHRONIC POST-OPERATIVE STIFFNESS 

 

Patients who are active or inactive and need certain tight muscles and fascia massaged after or while undergoing physiotherapy are massaged by our massage therapists with great success in improving their quality of life.

 

All our massage therapist are registered with the HPCSA.
