Massage Therapy is beneficial to absolutely everyone!

It is a fantastic modality to help with relaxation and muscle tension release. While relaxing and releasing pressure and built up tension within the body, you are also helping to ease and clear the mind.

Massage Therapy is used to promote relaxation and well-being. Massage and muscle manipulation are greatly beneficial to all sorts of ailments including treating sports injuries, postural misalignment, stiffness within the body and other issues effecting the musculature of the body.

Massage Therapy has many benefits and can help lower stress, fatigue, muscle tension, mental stress, reduce anxiety, sports injuries, and recurring ailments. Preparing for your massage will come with rewarding results complimenting the body work you are about to receive.

The release of the ‘feel good’ endorphins will leave you feeling on a natural high. Those endorphins leave you feeling relaxed and energised at the same time. It is a wonderful feeling! The good news is those endorphins have their own healing qualities and the benefits of massage therapy accumulate over time with regularly scheduled sessions. The more often you come, the better you feel, the faster your body responds, and the quicker you feel relief.

At 8 Serenity Massage & Beauty, we offer the following massage treatments:

Deep Tissue Massage Therapy

Deep Tissue Massage Therapy applies deeper pressure that is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus of a Deep Tissue Massage is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia (the protective layer surrounding the muscles, bones, and joints).

Specific strokes in a Deep Tissue Massage are used to manipulate tissues while movement techniques are used to release muscular congestion. Deep Tissue Massage helps to loosen muscle tissues, release toxins, and get blood and oxygen circulating. Deep Tissue Massage is both corrective and therapeutic.

Deep Tissue Massage is beneficial for sports injuries and chronic pain.

Trigger Point Massage Therapy

Trigger Point Massage Therapy is a technique that involves the application of the pressure applied to the Trigger Point of the tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body.

It may also be called Myofascial (Myo meaning muscle, Fascial meaning connective tissue) Trigger Point Therapy. Trigger Point Massage is particularly good in releasing very tight muscles and putting them back to a semi relaxed state until they have calmed down from being so tight.

Trigger Point Massage can also be combined with Deep Tissue Massage and MRT (Movement Release Technique) for even better results of exceptionally sore muscles. This Technique is applied in Sports Massage.

Advanced MRT

Advanced MRT (Movement Release Technique) is combining movement of the limb while applying pressure deep into the active muscle to encourage the muscle to release from its tight state.

MRT is combined with Deep Tissue and Trigger Point massages. All three together are applied when having a Sports Massage.

Swedish Massage

Making massage part of your regular routine is so good for the body’s well-being.

Swedish Massage is known to reduce joint stiffness, muscle tension pain and relieve from anxiety and stress. Swedish Massage promotes relaxation and leaves you with a feeling of well-being and body awareness.

Swedish Massage is best suited for people who do not like a lot of pressure during a Massage. This is a more relaxed style of massage suited to people who are looking for some relaxation time to themselves without too much discomfort.

Pregnancy Massage

A Pregnancy Massage is different from any other type of treatment as there are different trigger points and a level of sensitivity and gentleness that is required by the Therapist.

This massage is carried out in a side-lying position to maximise the effectiveness of, and assists to gain the full benefits of the massage. Side-lying is a more natural position and keeps the hips and pelvis level and the lower back fully supported. Pillows are used in supporting the body. This can help to alleviate the extra strain on the lower back and pelvic areas when the pressure of a massage technique is applied.

Pregnancy Massage is a useful way of reducing general pregnancy discomfort as it helps with muscle tension, backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and swelling. Massaging can also assist with reducing stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation and helps to relax nervous tension, which can aid in better night’s sleep.
