How can massage help

Massage therapy can reduce cortisol levels (a stress inducing hormone) while increasing other hormones (including dopamine and serotonin) which have a positive effect on wellbeing. It can also help by

  • stimulating blood supply

  • increasing joint mobility

  • increasing tissue elasticity

  • releasing tension

  • reducing or eliminating pain

  • supporting the repair of damaged tissue

  • reducing stress

All of our massage therapists also support our Osteopaths as Osteopathic Assistants, providing a short pre-treatment massage prior to the osteopathic treatments.
