What does a massage treatment involve?

The first treatment starts with a consultation, during which we discuss your past medical history, current needs and any advice from your doctor. This confidential information helps plan the best course of treatment for you.

Treatments are carried out whilst you are lying on a massage couch. Throughout your treatment you will be covered with warm, soft towels, exposing only the area being massaged, to ensure you feel safe and comfortable at all times. You will be asked throughout the treatment if the pressure being used is comfortable. During the treatment soothing background music will be played.
