Massage

At S57 Health and Wellbeing Clinic, our Massage Therapists specialise in the top 5 forms of massage:

Massage is a treatment which aims to relax, revive, and heal the body. Our Massage Therapists use “hands-on” movements and manipulation of the soft tissues and muscles in the body to promote healing and enhance overall wellbeing.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage in essence is tailored around you and your present training program. Think of it as a good Remedial Massage that is catered specifically for your chosen sport.

Sports Massage will alter depending on where you are in your training program and whether you are enhancing your performance or recovering from injury. It utilises more dynamic techniques such as passive stretching, MET (Muscle Energy Technique), PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation).

Good For: Someone looking for that pre-sport enhancement, post-sport recovery, or any sports related injuries both old and new.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is similar to a full body relaxation massage but the pressure is adjusted to manipulate the deeper tissue layers in the body. It’s great for finding a really deep pressure and that ‘good’ pain. If you are looking for a more specific massage then Remedial or Sports Massage is better for you.

Good For: Someone wanting something similar to a Swedish / Relaxation Massage, but wants a Massage that targets the deeper layer of muscle.

Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage is a very thorough, all over Massage designed to iron out any areas of tension you may have. It can be an all over general Massage where the Massage Therapist works from head-to-toe, finding and releasing tension as they go, or it can be a very focussed session e.g. upper body only.

Unlike Deep Tissue Massage, it is inclusive of more advanced skills and techniques such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and dry needling.

Good For: Office workers who suffer from sore shoulders or stiff necks, as well as anyone with a muscle-related injury.

full body massage

Swedish Massage

Whether you call it Relaxation, Full Body, Lymphatic, or Swedish, this Massage is all about relaxation (so those who like their muscles really pummelled, this is not for you). It uses a soft pressure to reduce stress, improve circulation and movement, and provides the deep relaxation that allows our minds and bodies to rejuvenate.

Good For: People who want to treat themselves (or somebody else – this would be an ideal Birthday Gift, for example).

pregnancy massage

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage is similar to all other massages we offer, the main difference is that massage techniques used in pregnancy are adapted to maintain the wellbeing of mother and child. Techniques vary from firmer massages to relieve discomfort, or softer massages to help relax the expectant mother.

Good For: Pregnancy massage is becoming more popular among expectant mums. It’s possible for women to receive massages throughout the duration of their pregnancy, we simply adapt our techniques to suit each stage of pregnancy.
