A therapeutic massage session is highly adaptable, and therefore can be tailored to your specific needs. A consultation is carried out before the session to establish what your problem areas are and what your expectations are for your treatment.  

Therapeutic massage can be used to promote relaxation and all the physiological benefits related to that or more focused on relieving chronic muscular pain, aches and stiffness. It can be used to maintain your health and fitness and prevent injuries developing. as it increases the circulation, oxygenating the muscle fibres and removes accumulated residues of lactic acid, which can cause stiffness and pain. Where there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and facilitate normal movement.  Muscles must be relaxed in order to reach the deeper musculature, hence why the relaxation is so important. The movement is slow and the pressure is deep and concentrated on areas of tension and pain, with the intent of breaking up old structural patterns and allowing the free flow of nutrients and oxygen to the muscles, organs and tissues and removal of waste products- detoxing. Restricted, stiff, knotted or painful areas are detected and by slowly working, release is encouraged. Lymphatic drainage is facilitated, the immune system supported and pressure points in the feet, hands and face can be stimulated.
 A massage can also become predominantly meditative  -a relaxing experience.  The nature of the massage been slow and rhythmical, encouraging the relaxation response, a change in the brainwaves and an altered state of consciousness ..the parasympathetic part of the autonomic nervous system takes control and allows restorative and nourishing bodily functions to take priority enabling us to regain our stability, balance and vitality. It enables us to access that quiet space within that due to the pace of life we seldom find. 

I believe we all under estimate the importance of taking some quiet time out, to support ourselves, to nurture, restore and rebalance our physical and mental health.
