The healing art of massage dates back to before Roman times and works the soft tissue and muscles of the body using the hands. Massage can be used for a variety of reasons; for many it helps manage specific physical tension and pain, whilst reducing the effects of emotional and mental stresses on the mind, giving a sense of peace and tranquillity.
The benefits of massage include:
• Pain management.
• Reduction in stress.
• Improvement in mood disturbance.
• Aids sleep.
• Improvement in ability to cope.
Massage can be tailored to suit the needs of the individual and can be given either at the bedside, in a chair or in our therapy room. Massage can also be given using essential oils (please see aromatherapy page)
