The bodies natural reaction to stress, whether physical or emotional, is to tense up, triggering 'flight or fight' mode. Chronic tension causes tissues to 'knit' together leading to a muscle that is less flexible and more prone to injury, tension headaches, irritability and impaired sleep.
Massage, including deep tissue and myofascial release therapy manipulates the soft tissues of the body, causing beneficial effects on the nervous, musculatory, circulatory and lymphatic systems.
The skilled use of these techniques may decrease tension and flush fluids, noticeably alleviating pain, increasing muscle mobility while promoting a great sense of wellbeing and deep relaxation.
Preceding your massage session, your massage therapist will consult with you to establish your specific area of concern (target muscle) and your pressure preference. You will also be advised of the sequence of your massage session ensuring that your expectations are addressed.

Contra-indications and Side Effects
Contraindications are conditions of the body where it is ill-advised to massage.
In some cases massage is to be avoided completely or slightly adjusted in pressure, strokes or avoiding the area of concern. Please feel free to contact your massage therapist to discuss your concerns.
Please note that in some cases a medical clearance from your physician may be requested before your massage for your safety.
While most clients feel energised, relaxed and content after massage, some may experience 'flu-like' symptoms on occasion feeling head-achey, tired or even a little sore. These feelings are completely normal and can be reduced by rest, increasing your water intake and applying a warm wheat bag.
Please contact your massage therapist after massage if you have any symptoms so that we can address these as soon as possible.
