MB Massage Therapy

This is a bespoke treatment for the individual that uses a combination of Swedish (Holistic) massage and Deep tissue techniques. It is primarily aimed at relaxing both mind and body, while addressing any “niggles” or sore spots you may be experiencing.

The various Swedish massage techniques are designed to improve your circulation, soothe your muscles and make you feel more relaxed.

Swedish massage uses softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of the body, and stronger strokes where there is thicker muscle coverage. This adjustment of pressure makes it an ideal massage for relaxation.

Besides the calming benefits, Swedish massage is thought to be good for: 

  • easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins
  • improving circulation by increasing oxygen flow in the blood
  • helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple
  • reducing emotional and physical stress.

Deep tissue massage does what it says ‘on the tin’ – it is a massage technique that works on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. 

  • Uses slower and firmer strokes and pressure than other treatments – deep finger pressure that concentrates on certain areas and follows or goes across the fibres of muscles and tendons.
  • Helps to refresh and relax muscles, increasing the blood flow and therefore the oxygen flow around your body. This gets rid of toxins in very sore and strained muscles, which helps them to strengthen and heal.
  • Is often used to treat people who are recovering from accidents, and for sports injuries as it increases blood circulation in muscles that are underused, relieves chronic muscle tension throughout the body, and can also break down scar tissue and “knots” deep in the muscles.

Your massage with Lauraine will have a combination of these techniques according to treatment need and client preference.
