At Circle 8 Massage, we understand pain is debilitating. It affects each part of our life, draws focus away from our work, and makes it challenging to relax. Pain also affects our mental and physical health on many levels.
For these reasons, we work with our clients to bring extensive changes to their mobility. That’s why when you come to us for a full body massage Leeds, we don’t just treat the issue. Instead, we find out which movements and muscles are causing it. We explain exactly what’s happening to you, and provide you with exercises in the gym and at home that you can do to alleviate and eventually get rid of the issue you’re dealing with.
This is what you can expect when you come to Circle 8 Massage.
What is a Full Body Massage?
A full body massage is a therapeutic treatment that works your body from head to toe. The massage therapist uses a wide range of movements, techniques, and pressure levels to relieve tension and stress across all areas of the body.
The therapist customises the session to meet your needs; however, a full body massage may include:
- The head, temples, crown, scalp, and occipital muscles
- The neck, nape, trapezius
- The shoulders, collar bones, shoulder blades, and upper back
- Arms and hands
- The upper and lower back
- The legs, buttocks, glutes, calves, and feet
There are different types of massage, too, including sports massage, deep tissue massage, Swedish massage, and more.
The goal of full body massage Leeds is to relieve pain and tension so you feel fully restored, relaxed, and energised.
How to Prepare for Your Full Body Massage Leeds
Is there really much to do to get ready for your full-body massage? There are a couple of things you need to do, including:
Book a Session
You’ll first need to contact Circle 8 Massage to book a session.
Before your session, it’s essential to hydrate your body to ensure your muscles are ready for the full body massage. When your body is hydrated, it’s easier for the therapist to release areas of tension and tightness. Being hydrated also makes it easier for your body to get rid of toxins that are released through massage.
We also advise removing any jewellery that may get in the therapist’s way to provide you with the most effective massage possible. Jewellery that can get in the way includes necklaces, watches, large or hoop earrings, and bracelets.
Switch Off Devices
We also recommend turning off your devices when you arrive for a full body massage Leeds. It’s essential to relax and enter into a calm mindset before your massage. So, consider turning your phone off or using the “Do Not Disturb” setting when you arrive for your full body massage.
What are the Benefits of Full Body Massage Leeds?
Massage therapy is one of the most effective methods to relieve discomfort and pain. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from our professional massage services.
1. Increases Blood Circulation
Not only can a full body massage relieve muscle tension and increase relaxation, but it also helps to increase blood circulation. The massage techniques used by a massage professional help oxygen and nutrients reach organs and tissues.
2. Reduces Pain & Swelling
Full body massage also works to reduce pain & swelling even from pre-existing medical issues. Back and joint pain are two common issues that clients struggle with. They look to massage to provide the relief they need.
In addition, athletes may also benefit from full body massage. Some struggle with repetitive motion injuries caused by their sport. Massage can effectively reduce pain and swelling; it may also help a client improve their recovery and allow them to prepare for an important athletic competition.
3. Removes Toxins
Full body massage is also quite effective in removing toxins from the body. Certain techniques are used during therapy that promote lymphatic drainage.
Massage techniques can help break up the toxins, so they’re more easily flushed from the system. When the toxins are flushed out, they may be excreted by the body over several days.
Removing these toxin buildups can improve a client’s wellbeing and quality of life.
4. Lowers Stress Levels
Full body massage also helps to lower stress levels. Studies have shown that massage can increase the levels of serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins. These hormones are called the “feel good” hormones for a reason. They help a person feel better both mentally and physically.
In other words, you may feel lower amounts of stress as you feel happier and calmer.
5. Increase Range of Motion
Full body massage also increases mobility and range of motion. This is accomplished by using purposeful movements and manipulation of the joints. The manipulations break up scar tissue and bring more flexibility.

Ant was welcoming, took my pain history and talked me through what he was manipulating. Been having a lot of trouble with my left hip, went for a walk today and no hint of old pain. He sent me exercises to do after my appointment to continue to strengthen my problem areas. Will be booking again soon.
Ant is brilliant – he really knows anatomy and massage, and will not only fix you with his hands, but also send you exercises to help prevent issues reoccurring. In addition, you’ll have a good chat, get film recommendations, and all with alt rock background music – far better than the usual ambient pan pipe nonsense. Highly recommended!
Ant is brilliant ! He has the knowledge of a great physio combined with strong and targeted massage technique that just works and gets me moving again ! Turned up with a sore kneee that wouldnt bend left completely fine and fixed plus a clear understanding of what had caused the problem. He even emailed me exercises later that day to help avoid future problems. Cannot recommend enough !! Thanks Ant !
Really good massage. I’ve been used to massage therapists just going in with their hands and not asking questions, but Jessika talked to me about my motivations for booking and then worked on the specific areas that needed it. I came out feeling like I had clouds for muscles, and my posture is already better. Amazing!
I’ve had chronic issues with my neck and back and I always leave Circle 8 feeling miles better. Ant is very knowledgeable and always makes sure to explain what may be causing the pain and discomfort. He is brilliant at what he does and is also really friendly. Definitely would recommend!
Circle8 is top notch for any niggles you might have, however big or small. Ant and the team are mega knowledgeable, they can feel exactly where you pain might be coming from, release your tension professionally, and even offer follow up exercises and mobility work to treat and prevent further issues. I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking for sports massage in Leeds city centre.
Best massage ive ever had. Ant is really friendly, great to chat to on the more painful areas of the massage and excellent aftercare advice. Wish I’d have found this place sooner! Cannot recommend enough, will definitely be back!
