@ the alternatives

Massage is used to maintain physical health as well as inducing relaxation. It helps to alleviate the build up of stress and tension in the muscles from every day use. We use two massage techniques - Swedish massage and aromatherapy massage (see aromatherapy link below). Swedish massage uses massage techniques specifically aimed to relax your muscles as the main purpose is to increase oxygen flow to the muscles and aid the body to remove the build up of toxins. Swedish massage tends to be a much deeper massage than the Aromatherapy therefore is more suited to sports people.
