Massage Treatments On Offer
We here at Active Back Care provide a variety of massage techniques, with our most popular treatments including:
Remedial Massage: This technique was developed to provide relief from pain, soreness, and stiffness caused by injury.
Therapeutic Massage (deep tissue massage): This popular treatment works on the deep muscle layers to relieve long-standing symptoms, such as sciatica and deep back or hip pain.
Swedish massage (relaxation massage): While Swedish massage may incorporate kneading, tapping, effleurage, friction, and vibration, it is a gentler and more relaxing technique than remedial or therapeutic massage.
Sports Massage: This type of massage is meant to stretch the body, improving range of motion and boosting muscle metabolism. This benefits everyone from the casual competitor to the professional athlete.
Trigger point Massage: This is one of the most effective ways to address myofascial trigger points in the muscles.
Pregnancy and postnatal massage: Prenatal massage creates a feeling of relaxation and stimulates the release of natural pain-killing endorphins. It can also be used to improve balance and posture, alleviate discomfort, and relieve strain on the back, spine, hips, and legs.
