The osteopath will assess you and decide the best areas to work with according to your history. This massage is super specific and not necessarily the typical “relaxation massage” one may expect from a sports or therapeutic relaxation massage.
A sports massage can be a fairly firm massage, not intended to cause any pain. It increases blood supply to the muscles and promotes drainage from the muscles.
It can be stimulating to enhance performance before an event and drain lactic acid after an event. It helps injury recovery and softens the tension in the body to improve its function.
Therapeutic Relaxation Massage
Allow your body the space, the time and the touch, relaxing music and diffusers set the scene. Feel your muscles transform from cold stone concrete to vital healthy tissue.
Enjoy long soothing Swedish massage strokes, petrissage and settle into the couch. Relax. Let go. Let yourself be. It's your time.
I just wanted to write to say thank you so much for helping me with my back problem today. I am so grateful to you - it certainly feels a lot easier than it did when I came in this morning! I really don’t want to think about the next few months when I will not be at your Pilates classes! What is so great for me, is that you have not only helped me regain my strength, but amazingly I improved my mental health beyond recognition - I will be forever grateful to you, and hope to have a long long time of participating in your classes and your lives! Thank you again for being so super!!!
I came to Bridgeham as I had some health & wellbeing cover through work which included massage and various treatments. All has been great! I had a consultation, osteopathic review and a relaxing body massage. Due to having recently had breast cancer and having lymph nodes removed through operation, this was very helpful with regards to lymphatic drainage and I was reassured throughout. All practitioners listened and all treatments have been beneficial. Thank you.
Well I must say I’m impressed. Got home after seeing you and a situation that would normally have stressed me out seemed to have no effect at all! I keep waiting for the old anxiety to kick back in, thinking it can’t have been that simple, but clearly it was. Think I’ll be contacting you soon for some help with weight loss.
“A visit to Bridgeham Clinic can be a life enhancing experience, made enjoyable by the friendly atmosphere and the genuine desire of everyone to help get you better. The rest is down to you!”
I was in so much pain, Pauline on Reception was absolutely lovely, made me coffee, felt at home and at ease straight away. Treatment was fantastic, felt quite emotional with the help I received. Diagnosed and treated straight away. So happy!
I have spent a lot of money and time with a multitude of different clinics over the years and not one of them has come close to having the level of knowledge that the Bridgeham Clinic has.
