Stressed out, in pain, feeling uncomfortable? Here’s why a massage helps…

A massage works out the knots and tension, easing away stress and leaving you totally relaxed. There are many causes of stress in modern day life that cause tension. That tension can work its way into our muscles, and cause discomfort and pain. Fortunately there are a number of massage techniques that can be used to relieve some of that tension and counter balance our stress levels.

Massage can:

  • Reduce muscle spasms, pain and tension.swedish massage torquay beauty therapy massage
  • Encourage the release of endorphin’s, the body’s natural painkillers.
  • Relax the body and mind, therefore helping to reduce anxiety too.
  • Help to stimulate blood circulation.
  • Improve lymphatic drainage and the removal of toxins from the body.
  • Lengthen the muscles so flexibility and mobility are improved.
  • Reduce swelling caused by an accumulation of fluid in the tissues.
  • Balance the overall flow of natural life energy through the body.
  • Induce a feeling of well-being through the comfort of human touch.

Treatment options:

We have now introduced Pro and Expert pricing levels across our massages. This doesn’t reflect on the standard of the treatment but is merely a guide as to the level of experience of the therapist.

At Pro level, the therapist will be in their first four years post qualifying. They will know lots of various moves and techniques to tailor the massage to you.

At Expert level, the therapist has been qualified for more than four years and have also undergone at least two additional courses in their chosen field. They will have more techniques to draw upon with a level of experience that enables them to offer further guidance to assist you.
