Sports therapy massage, deep tissue massage and therapeutic Chinese cupping by GB Massage
Which treatment is right for me?
Massage is a form of structured touch designed to enhance the body’s function, aid healing and promote relaxation and well-being. The Touch Research Institute in Miami has been validating and quantifying the positive effects of touch on our health and well-being since 1982. You can link to their newsletter here for more information.
Massage may be categorised as a form of alternative or complementary therapy. A complementary therapy is one that can be used alongside conventional medical treatments. For example, oncology massage may be used alongside other medical treatments to help people who have cancer. An alternative therapy is one used instead of conventional medical intervention. People may choose to use massage as an alternative therapy when they have a muscular injury, such as a sprain or a strain, instead of visiting their GP.
There are many different types and styles of massage and they are all designed to positively influence the body by acting upon it. This is done by the physical manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. More often than not the therapist uses some part of their own body, such as their hands, feet, forearms or elbows to treat their client.
Where can I find GB Massage?
I am predominately based at Treat on Heigham Street in Norwich city centre although I may also be found at The Stables Pilates Studio in Cringleford on a Wednesday. Both venues provide warm, welcoming and calm spaces ideal for massage therapy.
Why choose GB Massage?
The interaction between client and therapist is central to the success of a treatment. Being able to quickly build a relationship of trust and confidence is imperative to both parties. I aim to bring receptive hands, open eyes, listening ears, a quiet mind and a calm demeanour to each appointment.
