Active Release - Active Release Technique (ART) is a new and extremely efficient treatment for most types of soft tissue injury, whether from shock, repetitive motion, or athletics. During a typical healing session, the Active Release Technique practitioner first watches the client in action, and then feels for injured soft-tissue with his fingers. Designed to relieve the muscles that surround the joints by incorporating various nerve entrapment release techniques. Active Release Technique also aims to bring back soft tissue structures that feel tensed to their original and strong conditions.
Deep Tissue (also known as Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy) - Using deep muscle compression and friction along the grain of the muscle, the purpose of Deep Tissue Massage is to unstick the fibres of the muscles and release both toxins and deeply held tension points. Specific hand positions and strokes are used to respond to various tissues while breath and movement techniques are employed to release muscular congestion. It helps to loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly. It is both corrective and therapeutic. It is beneficial for many physical problems, including sports injuries and chronic pain. Because it works very deeply, emotional issues can also be addressed, when these have been stored in the body.
Sports Massage - Sports massage is designed to prevent and relieve injuries and conditions that are associated with exercise. It can often be quite strenuous and is meant to relieve and reduce the stress and tension that can build up within the body’s soft tissues while exercising. It can be carried out before, during, or after playing sport or exercising and uses techniques that are designed to increase endurance and performance, to minimise the chances of injury and, if there is an injury, to reduce the recovery time.
Reflexology - In reflexology, the trained sensitive hands of the therapist apply pressure to the reflex points of the feet. These points correspond to the body organs and systems.

Pregnancy Massage - Massage can decrease stress and improve relaxation, improve lymph drainage, benefit muscle tone and elasticity and have a balancing effect on glands, all of which are of huge benefit during pregnancy.
