Sports Massage
Sports Massage is aimed at preventing injury, treating injury and enhancing performance. It is the manipulation of soft tissue like muscle, tendon, ligament and skin. Massage is designed to restore normal functional activity to tissue that is experiencing problems or imbalances.

The benefits of Sports Massage are:

- Reduces muscle tension and resulting pain
- Improves recovery from training
- Improves flexibility
- Reduces restrictive scar tissue
- Increases circulation
- Improves posture
- Decreases recovery time from injury

Pregnancy Massage
A massage when you are pregnant can be a wonderful way to ease an aching back, stiff shoulders and sore hips. It can also pep up your mood and get those feel-good, pain-relieving endorphins flowing around your body, leaving you relaxed and refreshed.

The benefits of Pregnancy Massage are:

- A safe and comprehensive massage treatment for the whole body
- Relief from muscle tension caused by softening of the joints and an increase in weight
- Relief from excess fluid retained in limbs
- Relaxation for mind and body

Ultrasound Therapy
Ultrasound therapy is a method of stimulating the tissue beneath the skins surface using very high frequency sound waves, which cannot be heard by humans.

The benefits of Ultrasound are:

- Speeding up the healing process due to increase in blood flow to the area
- Softening of scar tissue


Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is an advanced therapy in which the practitioner uses a range of specialised and gentle rhythmic pumping techniques to move the skin in the direction of the lymph flow.

This stimulates the lymphatic vessels which carry substances vital to the defence of the body and removes waste products. The first visit will include a consultation during which the therapist will recommend the number and frequency of future sessions. Each session will last approximately one hour. Where appropriate the therapist will work in conjunction with your medical practitioner.

What are the benefits?
MLD is both preventative and remedial and can enhance your well being. Furthermore, MLD:

- Is deeply relaxing
- Promotes the healing of fractures, torn ligaments, sprains and lessens pain.
- Can improve many chronic conditions: sinusitus, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, acne and other skin conditions.
- May strengthen the immune system as part of “detox” treatment.
- Relieves fluid congestion: swollen ankles, tired puffy eyes and swollen legs due to pregnancy.
- Is an effective component of the treatment and control of lymphoedema (which may occur after cancer treatment) and assists in conditions arising from venous insufficiency.
- Promotes healing of wounds and burns and improves the appearance of old scars.
- Minimises or reduces stretch marks.
- Can be used to speed healing after cosmetic surgery.

The History
During the early 1930's Dr. Emil Vodder created a unique range of movements which brought relief from chronic conditions such as sinus congestion and catarrh. Since Vodder's pioneering work, MLD has spread world wide and has become a popular treatment in many European hospitals and clinics. It is now beginning to gain acceptance in the UK as a component in the treatment and control of lymphoedema.
