MASSAGE

At The Physio Rooms we offer a range of massage treatments to suit your health and performance needs from destressing to helping your muscles prepare for and recover from strenuous exercise. Our qualified massage therapists will work with you to make sure that the massage you received is tailored to your specific needs.

For those looking to alleviate the many physical and mental stresses that our bodies go through, massage can…

-       Improve your circulation

Massage increases blood flow as the pressure created by the massage moves blood through congested areas of muscle.

 

-       Reduce pain

Our therapies relax the muscle tissue, this can help with muscular spasms and reduces the compression of nerves around the muscle.

 

-       Improve your mobility and flexibility

Reducing the tensions and tightness of muscles can help to your limbs and joints feel significantly less “locked” and makes movements feel easier and smoother.

 

-       Reduce stress and anxiety

The human body has approximately 5 million touch receptors which trigger the release of endorphins in response to touch. Endorphins act as a natural sedative, leaving you feeling more relaxed and less anxious.

 

-       Improve your posture

A variety of techniques such as myofascial release and joint mobilisation can help to reduce the pains and strains associated with poor posture, making it easier and more comfortable for you to maintain good posture in the future.

 

-       Decrease heart rate and blood pressure

As your body relaxes into the massage your heart rate and blood pressure will lessen, a regular massage can help to keep both your systolic and diastolic blood pressure low.

 

-       Help with regulation of mood and sleep cycles

Studies have shown that regular massage can increase the body’s serotonin and melatonin levels leading to improvements in mood and more regular circadian sleep cycles.
