Massage Therapy

Whether you’re looking to relieve pain, improve your range of movement, flexibility or mobility, prevent injury, or are looking to escape the stresses of daily life, we can help.

We offer the following Massage Therapies: Sports, Deep Tissue, Remedial, Relaxing, and Pregnancy Massage

Massage Thearpy can benefit people of any age, with injuries that may have been caused by a variety of activities ranging from general day-to-day wear and tear, to specific sporting injuries. Massage therapy including sports massage has many different benefits ranging from treating injury to preventing injury, improving circulation around the body to the breaking down of scar tissue, enhancing your physical performance to enhancing your sense of well-being. Scar tissue is formed during the healing process of an injury, resulting in restricted movement and function within the affected area potentially causing pain. The limited flexibility within the tissue can increase the risk of re-injury. Sports massage techniques can help to break down the scar tissue and help to stretch the tissue, thereby helping to increase your range of movement and decrease pain. Rehabilitation exercises combined with the sports massage can further help strengthen the injured area, decreasing the likelihood of re-injury or recurrence. Pregnancy massage is also available with Rachael Merrett.

Sports massage therapy

Sports performers of all levels can benefit from sports massage, whether you are in training, in the middle of a competitive event, post event (heavy training, competitive event, or marathon for example), or recovering from an injury.

Our Gloucester based Massage Therapists are highly skilled, experienced, and trained in the musculature of the body. Sports Therapy promotes faster healing of strained muscles, reduces pain, and improves circulation of blood and movement of lymph fluids. This also helps relieve tension, stiffness and muscle spasms, increases joint flexibility and range of motion, and improves the function of joints after injury in areas including (but not limited to) the spine, shoulders, hips and knees.

They will listen carefully to your needs and requirements, tailor a Massage exactly to suit you, and provide aftercare guidance.

Massage therapy and Chiropractic

Muscles attach to the bones and joints via tendons, so if the muscles are holding tension and are too tight, they can pull on these structures, affecting alignment and function. This is where the connection is between Massage Therapy and Chiropractic. The combination of both treatments can dramatically improve recovery time in many cases.

Chiropractic and Massage Therapy are compatible and share the goal of total well being. Both offer natural hands-on techniques and can be used as preventative as well as restorative techniques. Used in combination, they can help you to achieve and maintain your optimum health, and enjoy life to the fullest. Our Chiropractors may refer you for Massage Therapy and vice versa, as part of you long term treatment plan.

We offer free 20 minute massage taster sessions to help you find out which treatment is right for you. Call 01452309372 to book.
