Massage Therapy

Our massage therapist Theo offers deep-tissue and holistic massage.  While many people have massage therapy on the recommendation of the osteopaths to help with specific problems caused by tight muscles, plenty of people also book massage purely for relaxation and wellbeing. 

In addition to being a great way to ease muscle tension, de-stress and revitalise, massage therapy has been shown to:

  • Increase circulation and lymphatic drainage
  • Improve immune function by increasing white blood cell count
  • Help certain types of headaches
  • Lower blood pressure and heartrate
