Massage Therapy

Emma at Therapeutic service is able to provide a bespoke ‘Therapeutic massage service’ enabling you to reach a greater sense of wellbeing and deeper relaxation. I believe massage is for everyone and I can cater for all ages.

Massage Therapy

I have achieved many accredited qualifications in massage and have my own established home-based therapy treatment room. The Therapy room is equipped with a luxury wide massage therapy table/bed providing you with the best in comfort. The therapy bed is able to take a weights of up to 32 Stone and heights of approx. 6.5ft so limits exclusions and gives full comfort.  I also offer chair massage if the therapy bed is not suitable.

I can offer a massage to suit your requirements; be it gentle massage for deep relaxation or a deep tissue massage tackling those annoying knots most commonly found in your shoulders. Both light and deeper massage technique is guaranteed to be relaxing, relieve muscle tension and give you a good night’s sleep.

I use a variety of aromatherapy massage wax’s, luxury oils, creams and coconut oil for you to choose from for your massage.

Massage will be carried using standard massage towelling method so you are covered at all times and only revealing the area that will be worked on. In some cases massage can be carried out fully clothed.

Massage can be seated (chair or wheelchair) or using standard therapy treatment couch

I have an enhanced DBS and is fully insured which means I can also work with children, vulnerable adults and adults with disabilities.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage is the manipulation of soft tissue such as the muscle using the hands, thumbs, fingers, fore-arm or elbows which are used to apply pressure to suit your needs.

There are numerous benefits to massage, both physical and emotional. These include some of the following;

  • Relaxes the mind and the body reducing stress.
  • Increases the blood and lymphatic circulation.
  • Relaxes tight muscles.
  • Relieves stiff joints.
  • Encourages deeper and relaxed breathing.
  • Helps to induce feelings of calmness therefore reducing anxiety.
  • Encourages improved sleep.
  • Improves digestion.
  • Improves condition of the skin.
  • Creates feelings of well-being

Let’s talk knots (also known as trigger points)

What is a knot/trigger point?

  • A knot which can also be a trigger point is often an active knot (painful) with an area of pain at a particular point in the muscle.
  • It can also be like a nodule embedded in the taut band of muscle that is latent (painless).

What does a knot / trigger point feel like?

  • Small nodules the size of a pinhead
  • Pea-sized nodules
  • Large lumps can be more than one.
  • Tender spots embedded into the muscle.
  • Skin maybe slightly warmer over the trigger point
  • Stiffness in affected muscle.

How will my therapist help with relieving my knots/trigger points?

  • I will identify the knot/trigger point and will press with circular movements up to 6 seconds up to three times on it which can numb and reduce the pain in the area.
  • Pressing can break the cycle of pain and spasm.
  • Pressing can stimulate the blood supply to clear away debris and toxins and increase release of pain killing endorphins.

What is the result of pressing and massage on my trigger points?

  • The trigger point will soften and evaporate under the pressure and massage.
  • The stimulation of blood supply can clear toxins and increase endorphins.
