What is Massage?
Massage is a term used for the method of bringing relaxation and increased circulation to the body’s muscles. The treatments use pressing and rubbing movements to ease the muscles, ligaments, and tendons of the body. Some forms of massage use deep pressure, while others use light stroking movements.
There are several types of massage that we offer:
Sports massage uses a variety of pressure and techniques to speed up recovery after an injury. It can also be used to prevent future injuries. This technique uses deeper, more intense, focused pressure to help injuries heal.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage alleviates severe aches and pains, stiffness, and general soreness in the upper and lower back, shoulders, legs, and neck. This technique uses slower, more forceful strokes to focus on the deeper muscle layers and connective tissue. Deep tissue massage is used to treat muscle damage from injuries.
Thai massage originally came from Asia, where it’s been practised for thousands of years. This form of massage differs slightly from the others. It uses a massage style that uses gentle pressure, stretches, and energetic healing techniques that bring rejuvenation and relaxation to the body.
Swedish massage uses specific hand movements and pressure combined with kneading, percussion, rolling, and other movements. This form of massage is meant to help you unwind and relax.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is another ancient healing practice that relies on the pressure of hot stones to massage the body. The flat, heated stones are placed on specific parts of the body. The stones place some pressure in these areas, combined with their heat, to bring relief to sore muscles.
We also provide the following types of massage:
Indian Head Massage
CBD Oil Massage
The Benefits of Massage Spa Leeds Treatments
Massage therapy done by a licensed practitioner offers several benefits, including:
Over time, stress can cause emotional and physical symptoms. Massage therapies work to relieve stress by relaxing the body and mind.
Increases Immune Function
Studies have shown that massage therapy also boosts the immune system by increasing the activity of the body’s T cells that work to fend off disease.
Increases Mental Health and Wellness
Research has also shown that massage also helps relieve the symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression. The result is feeling more relaxed and having a more positive outlook.
Massage also alleviates pain. Pain can have a drastic negative impact on a person’s life. However, massage has been shown to relieve pain.
Increases Blood Circulation
Massage can also increase the body’s blood circulation. It helps move blood through congested and injured areas. Increased circulation means the body can remove toxins and other waste from these areas and bring in much-needed nutrients and oxygen, increasing the speed of healing in some cases.
In addition to massage techniques, we also provide other holistic therapies, including:
- Cupping therapy
- Myofascial release
- Hyper-volt therapy
- Kinesiology taping
Our massage spa offers different treatment packages for your convenience:
- 30 Minutes
- 45 Minutes
