Osteopathic massage aims to free-up restrictions or stiffness within muscles and joints to not only improve the body’s movement and posture, but also blood flow, venous and lymphatic drainage and nerve conduction. Osteo massage may help boost the body’s vitality and energy levels, immune system responses, and ability to fight disease. Read more about osteopathic massage here.
Baby Massage Classes
Baby massage is a wonderful way to physically bond with your baby! It also supports many important physiological systems in the infant to improve sleep quality, aid digestion and weight gain, promote circulation, and ease teething discomfort. Great for mums, dads, and caregivers. Read more about baby massage classes here.
Muscles that are sore and tense often have tender spots in them that are called trigger points, commonly know as “knots”. These points are the focus of a dry needling treatment, whereby fine filament needles are used to release these points. Releasing these points can improve the ability of the muscle to contract and release, consequently improving the function of surrounding joints, nerves and vessels.
