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. 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.

Pregnancy massage - did you know that we offer Pregnancy Massage at St Judes? Let our friendly Massage Therapist, Rachel, ease muscular aches and pains and help you relax at this special time. Here is what one recent client said:

"I have also recently had a pregnancy massage with Rachel who was excellent and well trained and knowledgeable in this area as well as sports massage. I would really recommend St Judes for their highly qualified staff and offer of services."

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 45 or 30 minutes.  A recent client said:

"My upper back and shoulders were in need of sorting out, as with my hip area. Rachal did a brilliant job of identifying the problem areas and working on them to ease the tension and get me moving again. I will definitely be back every few months to keep myself moving!"

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.
