Relaxation massage therapy at Tavistock Physio Clinics

Relaxation Massage Therapy

A relaxation massage helps de-stress and loosen up your body. It is great for those who have had a hard working week or feel like treating themselves to some TLC!

The treatment consists of flowing strokes, kneading and gentle manipulations of the muscles performed at your chosen pressure. It is a pain-free way to relax both your muscles and your mind.

Pregnancy massage

30 minute (back, neck and shoulders) or 1 hour (full body).

A technique involving deep bodywork designed to improve your circulation, take some of the strain off your muscles and joints, and generally re-energize you.

During pregnancy, regular prenatal massages may not only help you relax, but may also relieve insomnia, joint pain, neck and back pain, leg cramping, and sciatica. Additionally, it can reduce swelling in your hands and feet (as long as that swelling isn't a result of preeclampsia), relieve carpal tunnel pain, and alleviate headaches and sinus congestion all common pregnancy problems. Massage may also lift depression without the use of medication, according to some scientific studies.

Deep tissue massage

30 minutes (back neck and shoulders or legs), 45 minute (back, neck, shoulders and glutes or back of legs), 1 hour (full body) treatment.

A type of massage therapy, deep tissue massage uses deep, slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). It's used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders. While some of the strokes may feel the same as those used in Swedish massage therapy, deep tissue massage isn't the same as a regular massage with deep pressure.
