Massage therapy is an effective treatment for reducing chronic and acute physical pain and can help you recover faster from injury as well as reduce the need for pain medication. Massage has been shown to improve immune function as well as reducing stress. Stress is the silent killer and is at the root of many diseases and health challenges. Massage helps by reducing cortisol and epinephrine, the stress hormones and by raising the feel-good hormones dopamine and serotonin.
I believe that taking care of your body is important for a healthy and happy life. That's why I offer a variety of massage services, including deep tissue massage, to help you relax and rejuvenate.
If you're looking for a way to relieve muscle tension, reduce stress, and improve your overall sense of well-being, soft tissue massage may be just what you need. This therapeutic technique involves the manipulation of the body's soft tissues, including muscles, skin, and connective tissues, using various strokes, kneading, and pressure.
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage that focuses on targeting the deeper layers of muscles and soft tissues. This type of massage uses slow strokes, deep pressure, and kneading techniques to help alleviate muscle tension, stiffness, and pain. It can also help improve circulation, which can enhance the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to your muscles.
During a deep tissue massage, I will use my fingers, hands, and elbows to apply pressure to specific areas of your body. This pressure can help release knots or adhesions in your muscles, which can cause pain and discomfort. It can also help stretch and lengthen your muscles, which can improve your flexibility and range of motion.
This type of massage is ideal for people who suffer from chronic muscle pain or tension, as well as those who are recovering from an injury or surgery. It can also be beneficial for athletes or anyone who engages in regular physical activity. Deep tissue massage can help speed up the recovery process, reduce inflammation, and improve overall performance.
Aside from its physical benefits, deep tissue massage can also help you relax and reduce stress. It can stimulate the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers and mood boosters. It can also help lower your heart rate and blood pressure.
Massage is a wonderful way to unwind and relax after a long day. The relaxation techniques used during massage help to reduce stress and anxiety, improve mood, and promote better sleep.
I can visit you in your own home or place of work or provide massage in a clinic room if you are in the Oxfordshire area depending on your preference. The length of a treatment can vary from 30 minutes up to 2 hours depending on your needs. Before the massage treatment takes place, I will go through some forms and perform an assessment. Unless I am working on a specific area which will be uncovered you will be covered with towels.
