Types of Massage
All forms of massage have many benefits and everyone can benefit from having a massage!
Based at The Ashford Back & Wellness Centre, we offer a selection of massage types from a 'full body' massage to a 20 minute 'Taster' massage (which we recommend for those who have never had a massage before). In our experience, the longer the massage... the more relaxed you feel afterwards as your body has had time to 'zone-out' and the muscles have had time to be properly worked on. But we understand that not everyone can fit an hour into their busy day which is why we offer a 'Back, Neck & Shoulder' massage for either 30 or 45 minutes. Whatever massage you decide on, you will still receive many benefits and our Massage Therapist will locate those areas that need attention. At the end of the massage, the Massage Therapist will recommend when you should come back for your next massage and explain to you about specific muscles which she had pin-pointed to feeling tense during the massage.
A perfect introduction to massage... it is specifically aimed at those who have not experienced a massage before. It does what it says on the tin so to speak... It gives you a taster and is what we believe the right amount of time to discover whether it is for you! The 'Taster' massage is a brief introduction to a 'Back, Neck & Shoulder' massage and lasts for 20 minutes.
Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage:
Typically this massage lasts for either 30 or 45 minutes (whichever you prefer!). This massage aims at reducing that tension that you may be feeling up & around the shoulder area by the base of the neck. It will help you to relieve muscle tension that you are experiencing and our Massage Therapist will focus on specific areas that need attention. Many of our clients comment on how they feel utterly relaxed and can move more freely following this massage.
Full Body Massage:
This can be a 'Therapeutic' as well as 'Deep Tissue' massage and lasts 1 hour.
Please see our 'Times and Prices' section of the website for more information.
