A massage therapist will apply variable pressure to the manipulate the muscles and joints of the body to relax, revive and rebalance the body
Studies show that massage is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.
Its no longer just a self indulgent pamper, it can be a powerful tool in managing your overall well-being.
What do I need to know?
There are many variations of massage therapies practised in the UK each with their own benefits and price points. Most people can benefit from massage but, it may not be appropriate for people with some health conditions. You should seek advice in advance from a medical professional.
The bottom line
One of the most frequently asked questions before having a massage is ‘what do you wear?’ Typically, you’re required to wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing. Some treatments require less clothing (modesty protected) while others are fully clothed.
Remember – your therapist is a professional, they won’t mind you asking if you’re unsure.
