Janette offers 4 types of massage:

Relaxation Massage

This massage is designed to de-stress and loosen up your body, it is a pain free way to relax both your muscles and your mind.  The massage consists of flowing strokes, kneading and gentle manipulations of muscles performed at your chosen pressure. Janette will give you a choice of lotion or ethically blended oils that are available on the day of your treatment, these may include unscented grapeseed oil, relaxing Lavender or warming Ginger and Lemongrass.  

Remedial Massage

This massage treats the soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments and tendons.  It can be an effective way to prevent and treat muscle injuries, pain and soreness. It works by improving circulation and restoring nutrients needed for healthy tissue.   It relaxes muscles and relieves tension, whilst promoting deep relaxation to reduce both physical and mental fatigue.

Deep tissue massage

This massage is used to treat chronic tension and injuries from overuse.  The pace tends to be slower and pressure is applied more strongly and concentrated on problem areas by using the forearms, elbows, fingertips and knuckles as well as hands to break up adhesions.  Adhesions are bands of rigid tissue that can cause pain and inflammation, and restrict movement and circulation in muscle tissue. The massage works to realign the different layers of tissue, treating tendons, ligaments and fascia (the protective layer of tissues which surrounds bones, joints and muscles) as well as the muscles to release tension and provide pain relief.

Sports Massage

This massage is not just for serious athletes.  It treats the cause of pain whether this is due to a sporting injury, chronic condition or general wear and tear from everyday activities.  It aims to circulate blood and get muscles flushed and loose. Pre-event treatments are fast motions that stimulate muscles without loosening them in preparation for the upcoming event.  Post-event treatments are similar but also help to flush out the byproducts (lactic/uric acid) which accumulate in the muscle tissue after exercise. This is what causes muscles to feel stiff and sore following vigorous exercise.  Injury to an active individual can not only be painful, but frustrating and emotionally devastating. Sports massage can help muscles to return to their normal function and work more efficiently. It can help with injury prevention as well as recovery from injury, and can also enhance ability to perform.
