Massage therapy is used to help manage a health condition or enhance wellness. It involves manipulating the soft tissues of the body. Massage has been practised in most cultures, both Eastern and Western, throughout human history, and was one of the earliest tools that people used to try to relieve pain. The term “massage therapy” includes many techniques. The most common form of massage therapy in Western countries is called Swedish or classical massage; it is the core of most massage training programs, you can have a Therapeutic Full Body Massage or a Therapeutic Back Massage. Or you can try a massage that is tailor-made with a blend of aromatic oils to suit the needs of problematic areas called a Thai Oil Body Massage. Other styles include: –

Sports Massage: This can be both a reactive and preventative form of treatment. It
can encourage your existing injury to heal, but regular massage can also help to
stop new ones from occurring. This treatment is not just for the sports person,
anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding
jobs. Also, those not quite so obvious (occupational, emotional and postural stress
may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries).

Indian Head Massage: Relieves head, neck and shoulder tension, includes neck,
shoulder, scalp and facial massage. This treatment is known to improve circulation
and relax you using pressure points and drainage techniques. This style of massage
can benefit some clients with sinus and headache problems.

Thai Foot Massage: A massage of the feet and lower legs. Thai foot massage is both
invigorating and deeply relaxing and involves hands-on massage, stretching and
acupressure to stimulate reflex points.

Hot Stone Massage: Using basalt stone to help the body heal itself. The stones work
on the chakra points to help channel the body’s energy. The stones are used as a
thermal tool to gently knead out tension without the need of warming the muscles
