Massage

A soft tissue, or relaxing massage, is suitable for most people and often targets a wider area of the body, is used to relax muscles, improve blood supply and give you a general feeling of well being. It helps with lymphatic drainage which in turn will nourish and oxygenate the cells.  As stress builds up, we become less able to relax and tension develops causing aching muscles, tiredness and lack of energy.  A soft tissue massage at St Judes can help by breaking the stress cycle, helping you relax tight muscles and unwind.

*Hot stone massage is a deeply relaxing tissue massage that uses soothing oils/creams with
warm basalt stones.  The stones are heated then either placed on the body in a target area of
tension or used to massage and relax the muscles.  
Along with the benefits of a soft tissue massage (providing relaxation and promoting a better sleep) a hot stone massage can:

- Provide stress relief and eases tension and anxiety due to the heat of the stones having a calming effect on the nervous system.
- The heat of the stones immediately assists in the alleviation of muscle tension, aches
and pains.
- Aids relaxation and promotes better sleep
- Increases blood flow – bringing new oxygenated blood to tissues and removing waste
products
- Increases lymph flow – helping the body to rid itself of toxins and to aid the immune
system

- An improved overall sense of wellbeing

* Please note hot stone massage may not be suitable for everyone, as with all massage and treatments at St Judes, all clients are required to complete a screening and consent form to ensure that their chosen treatment is suitable for them personally - the form is triaged before the appointment is confirmed.

Pregnancy massage - did you know that we offer Pregnancy Massage at St Judes? Let our friendly Massage Therapist, Carlene, ease muscular aches and pains and help you relax at this special time.

A sports massage is a deep form of massage designed for active or sportspeople to stretch out and relax specific muscle groups or areas of the body. Massage therapy can help:

  • Relax muscles
  • Increase blood circulation
  • Maintain the body and generally keep it in better condition
  • Prevent injuries and loss of mobility
  • Improve range of motion and provide greater joint flexibility
  • Boost performance and improve recovery times following exercise
  • Relieve muscle aches and pain and reduces postural tension

The stroking effects of massage help with the removal of lactic acid and encourage the muscles to take up oxygen and nutrients, aiding recovery. Our experienced therapists can help break down scar tissue from previous injuries or trauma which can affect muscle, tendons and ligaments. Sessions are often used as a regular treatment to aid recovery and ease tight muscles.

An initial massage treatment at St Judes will last either 45 or 60 minutes with follow-up sessions of 30, 45 or 60 minutes. 

Please note if you have a current injury, a physiotherapy assessment may be the most appropriate treatment route for you - please explain the nature of your injury to the receptionist when booking and she will discuss the options with you.
