Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues in the body, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia, using various techniques to help alleviate pain, reduce stress, and promote overall wellness.
Massage therapy has numerous benefits, including reducing muscle tension and pain, improving circulation and flexibility, boosting the immune system, reducing stress and anxiety, promoting better sleep, and increasing overall relaxation and well-being.
It depends on the type of massage you receive. For the Orthopaedic Assessment we might need you to roll down sleeves or roll up trousers so wearing lose fitting clothes is recommended.
For an Advanced Clinical Massage it depends on the area that needs treating. If you have a sore back for instance, we’d recommend taking off your top so your therapist can access your back directly but leaving on your trousers or skirt is perfectly fine.
However, it is possible to do the massage over clothing if this is preferred just let us know at your appointment. Whatever you decide, you will always be properly draped with a sheet or blanket to ensure your privacy and comfort.
