Massage Therapy

What is Chinese Massage?

Massage therapy has been used for more than 3,000 years as a healing art.

Massage is used to improve circulation and reduce pain.

Massage is a non-invasive therapy that aids relaxation, alleviates mental stress and can help to relieve the everyday discomfort of overworked muscles, strained joints and ligaments and different types of chronic aches and pains.

If massage therapy starts soon after injury it can also help limit scar tissue and prevent other muscles from overcompensating for the trauma-affected joint.

How Massages Work

Massages increase blood flow to the specific muscles, allowing nutrients to be delivered more quickly while removing metabolic waste that can cause pain and delay recovery. If you don’t move much during the day, blood flow naturally decreases, so massage is an excellent method to get everything pumping again.

Being stationary all day can cause muscle fibres to become stuck together, known as an adhesion. These adhesions restrict movement and if untreated can lead to whole muscles becoming hypertonic and eventually painful. A precise massage can work on the problem tissue, lengthening it and breaking down the adhesions until a normal range of movement can be restored.
