Massage West Midlands
There is no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
Getting a massage can do you a world of good, and getting massage frequently can do even more. This is the beauty of bodywork, taking part in this form of regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you will be and how youthful you will remain with each passing year. Budgeting time and money for bodywork at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health. Remember just because a massage feels like a pampering treat does not mean it is any less therapeutic. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with us to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.

Sports massage can be used in the treatment of specific injuries, such as hamstring strains, as well as to help correct muscle imbalances, overuse and postural issues. It is these issues which should be corrected in order to prevent future injuries and improve the efficiency of our muscles and so enhance our performance.
Remedial massage therapy is both a preventative method of caring for one's body and a natural medicine to treat musculo-skeletal disorders.
Remedial Massage treatment involves focused massage of the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the body. This relieves chronic muscle tension through deeper more direct pressure or friction applied across the fibres of the muscle, not along the fibres. This helps break up scar tissue, loosen muscle tissue, release any build up of toxins, increase blood flow to promote tissue repair and is hence a remedy to many painful conditions.
