Theurapeutic Massage

Working with the therapist to achieve your need and reasoning for receiving a massage

Swedish massage was developed in the 1880's where skilled masseuses and masserus worked carried out soft tissue manipulations (effleurage, petrissage, friction and tapotement).  By the 1930s it was included within the other modalities of physiotherapy and developed and classed as a Theurapeutic treatment.

In theory, a Therapuetic Massage is that both the client and practitioner have a shared goal of achieving structural changes within the body, often through a series of regular massages. 

Some professional massages are classed as therapeutic, with real health benefits to work on pain and restrictions, whilst some focus on a more a superficial relaxation where blood and lymph circulation is improved.    

So if you chose a Theurapeutic Massage, please discuss with your therapist the aim of your massage, so that they can use the necessary techniques for you.  This can also include deep tissue or sports massage.

Your therapist will need to assess your current condition before a treatment approach is discussed.
