Sports Massage

OilMassage, applied skillfully, is the most effective therapy for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the muscular-skeletal system. Received regularly this may help athletes prevent injuries, which might otherwise be caused by overuse. A constant build up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves.

These muscle imbalances may develop and often go undiagnosed until they are serious enough to cause the athlete discomfort or impede performance. The skilled massage therapist will be able to detect variations in the soft tissues and by using the correct techniques, help the sports person maintain a much healthier physical state.

It may therefore be reasonably claimed that one of the greatest benefits of sports massage is in helping prevent injury. Sports and remedial massage therapy is not just for sports people. It helps many people who’ve never played sports! Whether you’re a marathon runner, an office worker, or a soon-to-be mum—we relieve pain, facilitate movement and encourage relaxation.

By taking care of ourselves we can give more to others.

Indonesian/Balinese Massage

A Balinese massage uses a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and Qi (energy) around the body, and induces a state of deep relaxation and well-being.

This ancient treatment uses a variety of techniques including skin rolling, kneading stroking, acupressure and reflexology, with essential oils to relax and soothe you. Balinese massage is related to Ayurveda, the Indian holistic system.

The treatment lasts one and a half hours, in a comfortable warm peaceful environment and is a whole body treatment.
