Massage Treatments

All massages have the following benefits:

Sports & Remedial

Sports & Remedial

Sports massage is a deep tissue massage that helps the mobilisation and stretching of muscles to their full length and potential. It is used in the prevention of an injury as well as speeding up recovery on new, recurring and old injuries.

Remedial massage provides a remedy to muscular dysfunction. It separates adhesion and scar tissue and helps realign damaged muscle fibres, with the aim of restoring balance within the body.

Both of these treatments are good for anyone, from the athlete to someone that wants to improve their active lifestyle or just want a deep tissue massage. They use a variety of techniques, such as Soft Tissue Release (STR) Neuromuscular Technique (NMT) and Muscle Energy Technique (MET) and Friction.

It is not uncommon for either of these massage treatments to be a little uncomfortable, sometimes known as ‘good pain’.

At Massage Weymouth we work to your limits as no two people are the same.

Soothing, heated rose quartz crystals are used to gently massage the face and certain areas of the neck and head.

This facial treatment stimulates cell renewal, heals and re-energises the skin, whilst promoting a feeling of wellbeing. Full of essential fatty acids, antioxidants, beta-carotene and vitamin c, these and other antioxidants are considered to be effective for slowing and counteracting the signs of ageing, reducing fine lines and rejuvenating the skin – in the most pure and natural way with no nasty chemicals.

Rose quartz crystal – also known as the love stone – enhances a feeling of immense calm to the recipient. It is also used to restore self-worth and self-esteem and it completely de-stresses the body and mind. You will be given a small rose quartz crystal on your first treatment to take home with you, to use as and when you need to.
