At Bodyscape Therapies, I offer the following massage treatments:
Massage Health Benefits:
A style of therapeutic massage used to warm, manipulate and stretch the soft tissues and joints of the body. By working on both the deep and superficial muscles, the massage aims to realign the body and restore balance.
This massage can help:
Anyone can benefit from a Sports Massage, whether you are an athlete, occasional exerciser or someone who has an active, busy or physically demanding lifestyle.
The massage can be a whole-body massage, or I can focus on specific areas of concern. Both the level of pressure (whether that’s a gentle or more vigorous approach) and techniques used are tailored to your needs and preferences.
A relaxing therapy, using a combination of deep tissue and Swedish massage techniques to manipulate the soft tissues of the body to restore balance and health.
Whether you choose a gentle pressure to induce deep relaxation or firm pressure to relieve stress and tension in the muscles, a therapeutic massage will leave you feeling relaxed and revived and offers numerous benefits to both mind and body. It aims to:
A restorative therapy for the areas most vulnerable to stress and tension – the face, scalp and shoulders.
It aims to help:
This massage is received seated or lying down and normally includes massage to your upper back, arms, shoulders, neck, head and face. By using a range of different massage pressures and rhythms, this therapy can be adjusted to suit everyone.
If the treatment is performed without oil, you can remain fully clothed, and I recommend wearing a lightweight top.
Pregnancy brings plenty of wonderful experiences and new challenges. It is a time when your body goes through rapid change and can bring with it aches, pains and discomfort as a result of changes to your posture and the extra weight of the baby.
Therapeutic and remedial massage techniques are used to help to:
The treatment takes place in a side position with your bump, knees and ankles fully supported. Far from being a generic pregnancy massage, the treatment is designed for you.
Pregnancy Massage is available from your 12-week scan until your baby arrives.
Now is the time to give a little back to yourself. Your body will have experienced many changes throughout pregnancy, during labour and into the postnatal journey. Effective therapeutic and remedial massage techniques are used to support you both physically and mentally at this exhausting time.
The aim is to help:
Pregnancy and birth can have a significant impact on your abdominal muscles and pelvic floor strength which in turn can affect the way you move and breath.
C-sections can have a largely unseen effect on our bodies. After having this major surgery, your body reacts by healing the site of the incision with scar tissue, a cement-like tissue to prevent the wound from re-opening. This is great for the incision site but not so great for the surrounding tissues as the scar tissue can create adhesions and be the cause of pain, discomfort and tightness as well as impacting other areas of your body.
Enjoy a personalised massage plan just for you. Whether it’s easing shoulder and lower back tension or working on your c-section scar, I will help you to feel and move better.
