Massage comes in many forms and can be used to aid recovery from injury or purely to provide relaxation. We offer many types at The Equilibrium Clinic and are also able to tailor a massage to suit your needs. If it’s a lower leg and foot massage you are after or a popular back, neck and shoulder massage, we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
Sports / Remedial Massage
This is a specialist massage treatment aimed at aiding recovery from an injury or an event, or as part of a long-term prevention of injury or training programme. It’s beneficial for everyone from elite athletes to those suffering from everyday muscular aches and pains, stiffness or limited movement, regardless of age or level of fitness and aims to keep muscles flexible and reduce soreness and stiffness, whilst improving strength and flexibility.
Treatment can include injury assessment, deep tissue massage, stretching techniques, ultrasound to reduce swelling and promote healing, and rehabilitation advice.
Sports / remedial massage is carried out as part of a programme sometimes in isolation or, where appropriate, in conjunction with other complementary treatments.

Therapeutic Swedish Body Massage
Swedish body massage is a holistic treatment used as a preventative treatment to ward off injury or illness as part of your regular routine or as a recovery aid. It improves posture and rebalances mind, body and spirit whilst keeping muscles soft and loosening stiff joints.
A strong, deeper tissue massage will stimulate blood circulation, improve oxygen and nutrient supply to the tissues of the body and increase lymph flow to remove waste products. This will leave you feeling less achy and lethargic. A deeper massage will also ease tense or tight muscles, improving general flexibility and mobility.
A more gentle massage works more methodically to lower heart rate, raised blood pressure and metabolism, and works on the nerve endings in the skin to induce deeper relaxation whilst relieving pain and reducing stress.

A patented, natural, biodegradable heat technology is incorporated into the shell which then emits heat for up to an hour, allowing for a continuous and seamless warm body massage. The unique shape and angles of the shell become an extension of the therapist’s hands, giving deep therapeutic relief exactly where needed. A mild heat level is also suitable during pregnancy.
