Remedial and Sports Massage

Remedial Massage helps to remove waste  products such as lactic acid and  encourages the muscle to take up  oxygen and nutrients which help the  muscles to recover . Sports massage helps to stretch muscle and restore circulation. Deep tissue massage breaks down scar tissue that may have formed  over past injuries.

One hour of prevention is worth months of cure.

Headaches and Migraines

Headaches are pain and tension felt in a person’s head.  Most headaches are related to     muscular tension and trigger points in muscles which can refer their pain to various points on the head.
The headache pain from trigger points is very real and are sometimes resistant to oral pain  relievers. Migraines are a different type of   headache caused by problems with blood vessels and nerves in the brain. There is evidence to suggest that migraines may be caused by muscular problems that will  respond to massage  therapy.
