Massage in Beckenham, Bromley & Croydon
Beckenham Therapy Rooms offers a number of different types of massage including:
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension held in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas. It is usually used to focus on specific areas or problems but a whole body treatment can be given.
This is ideal for loosening muscle groups to regain flexibility and prevent strains occurring. It focuses on muscle recovery rate and helps to cleanse the muscles of toxins allowing less muscle fatigue after exercise. Deep massage is applied to the muscle groups.
Holistic Massage is one of the most beneficial ways of keeping the body free from stress and illness by improving circulation, bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients to the body's cells, helping to eliminate toxins, and releasing muscular tension and stress.
Having regular massage treatments can ease minor aches and pains and can help to prevent many common ailments and symptoms of stress such as headaches, insomnia, anxiety, repetitive strain injury, and general fatigue.
Swedish Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues (skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments) of the body. It is a firm massage and has a set routine of techniques that vary from deep pressure to stimulate the body's systems, to a slower, more superficial movement to assist relaxation.
Pregnancy massage is a great way to relieve the physical discomfort and emotional stress that can accompany pregnancy. It relaxes the mind and body, relieves muscular tension, promotes wellbeing and improves sleep. Massage can also be beneficial post pregnancy. As well as giving you some 'me time', it promotes muscle healing and spinal alignment, important factors that assist in returning your body to its pre-pregnancy state.
Post-Natal massage therapy is specifically designed for women who have recently given birth. The massage techniques used, aim to help the body recover from the physical and emotional stresses of childbirth. Focus is on relieving muscle tension, reducing swelling, promoting relaxation and improving overall wellbeing. For post-natal massage after a caesarean section, we advise waiting until after 3 months or until the incision has healed sufficiently before starting on any postnatal massage regimen.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic drainage is a therapeutic massage treatment that uses very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes to increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body.
The lymphatic system is part of your body's immune system and helps to fight infections. It transports nutrients and oxygen to cells whilst collecting toxins and removing them through the lymph nodes. However, unlike blood, which is pumped around by your heart, the lymphatic system has no pump and relies on pressure from your blood vessels and movement from your muscles to push the lymphatic fluid around.
What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage good for?
- reducing the chances of you suffering from minor colds and viruses; it helps your body fight off infection, and speeds up healing and recovery from illness
- helping to reduce water retention; for instance, because the lymph system has no pump, if you sit for a long time without moving, the lymph can't flow easily - this is why you may experience swollen feet or fingers
- boosting weight loss, as improving the lymphatic system will improve your metabolic rate, which helps you burn calories more efficiently
- improving your skin texture by reducing swelling, puffiness and blotches giving you clean, healthy pores
