We have a Massage Therapy to suit everyone, whether you want a relaxing pamper, or a deep-tissue workout - the perfect gift for yourself of a loved one!

What is Massage?

Massage is the manipulation of muscles and tissue using a variety of strokes and pressure levels. Massage can be rehabilitative, as well as being a relaxation aid, to help with both physical and mental stresses and tensions.

Benefits of Massage

We use Massage to treat injury and to prevent injury, to relieve stress and anxiety, to improve range of movement, to encourage lymphatic drainage, to boost the immune system, to release toxins and to energise and revitalise.  We love to offer it because we recognise that touch is a powerful healer.

What to expect  

Your comfort and relaxation is paramount, which is why our therapists will work with you to tailor your massage to suit your needs. Simply talk to your therapist about whether you’re more comfortable lying down or sitting, remaining fully or partially clothed for the massage, and about the use of oils.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy uses essential oils which have a wide range of benefits to the mind and body, so following an in-depth consultation your therapist will tailor-make a therapeutic essentials oils blend to support your individual requirements. Once created, your personalised oil is applied with a relaxing massage to soothe, revitalise and uplift.

Back, Neck and Shoulder

This popular upper-body massage helps encourage relaxation, and relieve stress and tension across the
back, neck and shoulder area. Lasting either 30 or 45 minutes this is the perfect massage for a quick pick-me-up, or to address any aches and pains in the upper body. 

Deep Tissue

Slow, firm pressure (from fingertips, knuckles, hands - and sometimes even elbows!) is used to treat a specific problem areas, breaking down muscle ‘knots’ and rigid tissue to improve motion range. Deep Tissue Massage is well suited to injury rehabilitation, and prolonged tension and stiffness.

Hot Stones Massage

The use of smooth, heated basalt stones on the body make this massage deeply relaxing. The application of heat allows an increase in range of movement and reduces tension. The penetrating warmth from the stones works to increase metabolism, pulse rate and circulation, which helps to soothe away muscular aches and pains. With the body in such a deeply relaxed state, healing takes place more efficiently whilst the stresses of the day are melted away.

Leg and Foot Massage

A unique massage that’s not just a treat for the tootsies! The relaxing Leg & Foot massage not only rejuvenates tired and aching legs, but thanks to the huge number of reflexology points on the feet, benefits the body as a whole.

Pregnancy Massage

Bridge Practitioner Sam offers massages that are perfectly tailored to safely treat the stresses and strains associated with Pregnancy. All Pregnancy Massages are done in a supportive and comfortable propped or side-laying position.

Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage is a deep massage used to remedy a problem, or problems, including muscle and ligament pain, and may help injury rehabilitation, or assist with pain management. A full structural analysis will be carried out to identify imbalance, and appropriate treatment methods used. Bridge Practitioner, Mel may combine Remedial Massage with Acupuncture to offer a tailored approach to your health and wellbeing.

Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu originates from Japan, but has roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Using fingers, thumbs, hands and arms your therapist will use a variety of massage techniques to help improve energy flow around the body, relax the body and mind, and ease tension and stiffness.  As Shiatsu shares many diagnostic and treatment methods with Acupuncture it’s a great option for anyone not comfortable with needles. 

Sports Therapy

Focussing on a specific area, this therapeutic massage helps release tightened muscles and encourage muscle-healing from physical activity. Sports Therapy Massage is not only for recovery though, it can also help prevent injury, and could even enhance sports-performance!

Swedish Massage

During this popular massage your therapist will use a combination of five principal massage strokes to stimulate circulation, release muscle tension, and relax the body. With treatments ranging from 30 minutes to 90 minutes, Swedish Massage is ideal for a quick pick-me-up, or a fully rejuvenating experience.

For 7 years I have had knee pain! I was told late last year surgery is the next step and to avoid doing anything that makes my knees hurt. (Pretty much everything!) In 6 appointments I am nearly pain free! Mel is straightening me out from top to bottom in his knowledgeable, calm & cheery way. I can even see me putting my running shoes back on again soon.
