Onsite massage is done through clothing and without the use of massage oils. The various treatments are designed to ease stress and reduce the effects of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) and back pain. They work directly on muscles improving circulation which releases tension and stiffness, calming the nervous system, boosting energy levels and improving concentration. The effects of massage are immediate, unlike other forms of stress management. Sessions are typically 15-20 minutes but can be longer if requested.
As health and safety are a priority we ask our clients about their general health before the massage takes place. This enables us to assess the client's needs and ensures that they do not have any medical conditions which prevent them from receiving massage.
