Massage works by loosening tight muscles, improves circulation of blood within the body which enhances the delivery of oxygen, nourishes cells, and improves waste elimination – removing toxins. The skin is the largest and most sensitive organ of our body and the message which can be conveyed to it through touching gets provided for the brain which responds to tactile stimulation. The entire health and vitality of the body depends a great amount on the sense of touch. Massage reduces the hormone cortisol levels in the body and increases the ‘feel good’ hormones – so it will make you feel happy again!
I offer a range of treatments and therapies depending on your requirements, these may be mixed for optimum results.
Percussion vibration therapy – A revolutionary deep muscle treatment that uses rapid, repetitive strokes to stimulate blood flow & heat. This is unlike anything you’ve ever felt. Feel better, move better, and recover faster. Naturally relieves pain, enhances performance & recovery, relieves muscle tension & tightness and energizes the body.
Cupping therapy – an ancient form of alternative medicine using cups (suction cups) on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. Used for many purposes this therapy is great for pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage without the pain and pressure.
Cupping massage therapy – a great alternative to a sports or deep tissue massage minus the pain. This treatment has also show amazing results on cellulite. Cellulite is simply fatty deposits, toxins and impurities that haven’t broken down and remain underneath the skin. The main cause of cellulite is poor circulation. When the blood circulates well, it helps to break down these fatty deposits and removes them via the body’s natural lymphatic drainage system. Cupping massage and massage increases the blood flow and circulates fresh blood while removing the toxins and helping reduce and smooth out the cellulite appearance.
Swedish massage – the most common of massages, relaxes the entire body while rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to hearth. It is exceptional for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxin, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tensions. In addition to relaxation, massage can reduce pain, increase energy levels, improve physical/mental performance and stimulate the body’s lymphatic system to carry away waste products of metabolism.
Deep tissue massage – similar to Swedish massage but is used to target knots and release chronic muscle tension. Other benefits include reducing inflammation and helping to eliminate scar tissue. This is great for rehabilitation after injuries for chronic issues or keeping in shape.
Sports massage – known as manual and manipulative therapy. Sport massage is a physical treatment primarily used on the neuro-musculo-skeletal system to treat pain and disability. It is valuable on to an athlete’s preparation and recovery, preventing injury and helping to achieve optimal performance. It mostly includes kneading and manipulation of muscles, joint mobilization and joint manipulation.
Kinesio Taping Method®/Rock Taping – The Kinesio Taping® Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of prior manual therapy.
I had awful tension pains in my shoulder for a good week. 30 mins treatment with David and the next day I was brand new again! Definitely recommend! 5* – Bethany Cook
I have suffered from a bad back for a number of years and have had many massages over this time period. I recently tried the theragun treatment and the cupping massage from David and can’t recommend the treatments or him enough. Following the treatments the tightness in my back was instantly released, relieving the pain I had been in. Great job, thank you so much x – Catherine Lawson
