Types of Massage Visit

Types of massage

There are many different types of massage and it can be confusing trying to figure out which one is right for you.

In general we advise that if you have a specific painful problem then sports massage or deep tissue massage is a great place to start.  If you are simply looking for something to help you relax and unwind then Swedish massage or head massage is recommended.

We also offer reflexology for general health and wellbeing.

To help you understand the options available, here are some summaries of all the types of massage we provide.
