Massage- Sports & Aromatherapy

Massage is an holistic therapy; it treats the whole person - mind, body and spirit. It is the manipulation of soft tissues for therapeutic purposes.

Aromatherapy massage has its roots in the most ancient healing practices of humankind, it combines the effects of the oils themselves, with the important element of human contact between the therapist and the person seeking help. The oils used have a wonderful aroma. Many of the oils have stimulant properties and can be used to assist in the resolution of specific musculoskeletal problems. The practitioner takes a full case history to help decide which combination of oils is the most appropriate for an individual person.

Sports massage like other forms of massage helps improve the suppleness and flexibility of muscles and joints. It improves lymph and blood circulation and assists body systems in functioning at their optimum level. Sports massage is recommended, after injury, and for chronically tight muscles, and when a problem just seems to linger. It also is used for the prevention and treatment of sports injuries, and as a pre-event, post event or between event massage.

Our resident massage therapists are: Kathy Royale, Ellie Blott & Sharon Reed.
