Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are dozens of types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities). People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons – to reduce stress and anxiety, relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries, reduce pain, and promote overall health and wellbeing.
Therapeutic back, neck and shoulder massage is beneficial if you suffer with any of the following:
- Pain or discomfort in upper body
- Stiff neck or shoulders from working at a desk, driving etc
- Tense shoulders due to stress
- Lower back pain
- Sports injuries affecting upper body
Or, if you just find back massage relaxing!
Aromatherapy oils are used to enhance the benefits of this therapy. Oils can be specifically selected to your needs. These can help to reduce pain, warm the muscles, boost immunity, refresh the sinuses and clear and calm the mind.
Oils are also available to take home to use between therapies to help maintain the benefits for days or weeks at a time.

Structural dynamic sports massage combines sports massage with additional structural corrections and alignment therapies to help support the whole body. Firm massage helps to relieve the muscles of tension, work away lactic acid build-up (that can feel like knots in the muscle), improve injuries and prevent further injuries and discomfort.
