Massage has been used for centuries for both healing and relaxation, and today it is one of the most frequently used therapies by people of all ages. There are many types of massage, some of which are carried out on specific areas of the body, like Indian Head Massage, or Reflexology for the feet, but you’ll find these described separately within our Therapists’ Directory. In our general massage category we list therapists who offer mainly body massage, often referred to as bodywork. Body Massage can incorporate a wide range of techniques, and involves the therapist using mainly their hands, to calmly rub, knead and apply pressure to the soft tissue areas and muscular system of the body. Massage has been shown to have numerous therapeutic benefits for both mind and body. The physical benefits alone may include relieving aches and pains, increasing blood circulation, stimulating the lymphatic system to help eliminate toxins, increasing flexibility, and enhancing skin tone. Some therapists specialise in holistic body massage purely for relaxation... A long, leisurely massage given in a warm peaceful environment, with the use of scented oils and soft music, can be a deeply relaxing experience, and leave you feeling wonderfully calm and revitalised. This type of massage can help reduce stress and tension, promote restful sleep and help you to cope better with life’s many demands. Other massage therapists specialise in more remedial types of massage, often used by sports people, either as preparation for a forthcoming activity or after an event, when recovering from an injury or accident. Variations of massage from around the world are also now commonly used in the UK, such as Thai or Indonesian massage or Hot Stones Massage. If you’re looking for a certain type of massage, our advertised therapists will usually state the types they offer in their listing profiles, and should be happy to answer any questions about their particular specialisation. Massage is generally regarded as a safe natural therapy and can be given to almost anyone, including pregnant women, babies and children. However, sometimes it’s not recommended if you suffer from certain medical conditions, so if you’re not sure, you should first of all seek advice from GP before booking a massage treatment. A properly trained therapist should in any case ask you about your medical history at your initial consultation, and should advise you if it’s not appropriate for you to have a massage. Professional massage therapists will normally have been well trained in their field, and have a thorough knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Many offer more than one type of massage within their practice, so if one is not suitable, they’re likely to recommend an alternative technique. Types available include: Swedish Massage, Sports/ Remedial Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Hot Stones Massage, Tai or Indonesian Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Baby/Infant Massage.
