The stimulation of certain probably nerve fibres or receptors with needles, electrical impulses or lasers is thought to induce rhythmic discharges that cause a release of endogenous opioids. Other theories have been put forward to explain acupuncture’s apparent success at relieving menopausal hot flushes and sweats and reducing skin-flap necrosis in reconstructive surgery. In addition, acupuncture can help treat dental pain, nausea and vomiting, provide short-term relief of tension-type headache, temporary or short term relief of low back pain and provide temporary adjunctive treatment for osteoarthritis knee pain.

Sports Massage: Sports massage is provided by a variety of applications and oils, specifically designed for your individual needs: We assess your posture, and diagnose possible causes. Based on our results, we warm the muscles with deep tissue massage. We may follow up with MET’s (Muscle energy technique’s), and stretching to help return your posture to pre-injury status, and help you recover to your exercise regime. When muscles have been inactive for a while, due to pain and inflammation, muscles become weaker. If we can ease your pain, and reduce inflammation, you are more likely to return to quicker than leaving your injury to heal by itself.

Swedish Massage: We offer a relaxed atmosphere, in which to receive your massage. We use a range of oils, suitable for your individual needs. We offer full body massage, or head, neck and shoulders. Massage can reduce stress levels, improve sleep patterns, skin tone and improve circulation among many other benefits, such as helping to promote a good sense of well-being. Clinical trials suggest that abdominal massage might benefit those with constipation. Other trials suggest that massage might help ease low back pain.
