As a complementary treatment, massage is being increasingly used alongside standard methods for a wide range of medical conditions and situations such as aiding discomfort through pregnancy and relieving dilapidating injuries, disabilities or conditions.

 

Massage is the most effective way to maintain and correct soft tissue injury and tension. The process eases muscle tightness, improves circulation and increases mobility and balance. Massage has also got psychological benefits such as reducing anxiety, improving moods, and increases relaxation.

Before your initial treatment, a series of questions will be undertaken to asses history of illness and injury to ensure massage does not cause further complications, it is also undertaken to understand the nature of your current condition.

Deep Tissue/Sports Massage

 

Deep muscle massage, alongside prescribed daily stretching, can help maintain correct posture which in turn offsets the likelihood of injury. Massage is also a highly effective way of:

CBD Deep Tissue Massage 

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural substance found in the hemp plant, Cannabis Sativa, and has become one of the biggest trends in recent years, not only for its pain relieving, anxiety and stress reducing properties, but also for its non-psychoactive, anti-inflammatory effects, meaning we can all reap health benefits from this natural product without the high.

 

When cannabidiol is made, a distillation process is undertaken to separate cannabinoids from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the chemical compound known for its psychoactive effects. The remaining distilled oil, CBD, which is either completely free from THC or has trace amounts can then be infused into base oils for massage or taken orally through infused drinks and snack.

 

How does CBD work?

 

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a molecular system in the human body responsible for regulating and balancing many processes, including immune response, communication between cells, appetite and metabolism, and memory to name a few. It is through this system that CBD bind with ECS receptors which trigger the natural and beneficial effects we know of today.
