Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils during a massage therapy treatment. Different essential oils are added to carrier oil and can be used during the treatment. If you would like to use essential oils during your treatment just mention to the RMT at the time of appointment booking, and they can go through the list of essential oils with you.
Deep Tissue Massage:
Accidents, injuries, repetitive actions and everyday stress can cause problems that sometimes seem to take up a permanent residence in our bodies. Deep tissue massage Therapy can help. A gentle, effective therapy, massage can relieve pain and help your body to heal itself and prevent further injury or pain. Deep tissue massage is used to relieve pain and stress in a specific area of the body. Because deep is a pressure that is received differently for each individual, your RMT will inquire about the depth of pressure used and adjust it when needed for your comfort and muscular benefit.
Stress and Relaxation:
Prenatal Massage Therapy:
Child and Infant Massage:
As a parent you want to see your child grow and develop in a safe and nurturing environment. Touch is as important as food and sleep for healthy mental and physical development. Massage is attentive, positive touch that can promote your baby (and childs) well being while increasing your ability to respond to their needs and stress. Massage is an excellent way to bond with your infant/child. Massage for older children calms emotional upsets and relieves discomforts of illness, stress or physical exertion. Children who are regularly active in sports or physical play have muscle tension, which can be reduced by regular massage. Massage helps children to create a more positive body image and enhance emotional security.
